What do you think?


  1. I got to say, I've watched a ton of aquaponics videos. In fact I'm making a playlist called Gardening. But this is the first I've seen of the pool noodles method, and it is brilliant! Thanks much.

  2. Hi
    Im curious if i can do this but use a big pvc pipe & put end caps on the end? Id have to drill the holes in it i know. Im curious if there is any sanger of chemi als leaching from the plastic/pvc pipe that would not be good for the plants…or to eat? You thoughts please…tks much

  3. Since the water is not moving will it get stale? I tried to grow in a jar in my kitchen and had to change the water often, it got a film on it and got smelly. How does this works?

  4. Im sure this is an incredibly stupid question but im brand new to gardening in general: is the water underneath moving or connected to a pump? Do you have to change out the water?

  5. I'd question if the material the pool noodle is made of, is safe to grow in as it breaks down. I'd think most systems are made with food grade safe plastics etc…. but not so sure I'd trust using a pool noodle

  6. I actually discovered pool noodles a year or so back but your method for cutting them up is new to me and very cool. Thanks!

    What are your nutrient tanks mades of? They look like guttering!!
