12V BackUp Air System For Aquaponic Systems

12V BackUp Air System For Aquaponic Systems

12V Back Up Air System For Aquaponic Systems
G’Day Folks. Back up air systems are an essential part of any aquaponic set up.
This DIY12V back up switch system will automatically activate a 12V back up air pump to keep your water oxygenated for the fish if you have a blackout or lose power for a short period of time.
Below you will find some helpful links including one to the forum post I first saw this style of back up system on & links to some of the components used.
BTW, the dead fish in the thumbnail are from a few years ago. 👍😣
Hope you enjoy this quick update & your gardens are booming. Cheers all. 🐟 🌱🍅
