This is all I can get on right now. Pics later. THANKS BRIAN WHITE. My son saw Brian’s drawings and made this setup for my aquaponic window. This is an improvement over my setup I posted on 4/27/12 named “Windowfarm drawing”.
Husband Dave and I were in town when one of my lines fell and leaked on my carpet. OH NO I pumped the water from the carpet, then let it dry (3 days) I watered by hand at this time and was too tired to fix the lines back up. On the weekend son John came over and put them up for me. Being stronger than me, he got the system so it can handle a heavier load (4 lines) now, and the drip lines are fixed stronger too. OH – John said the distances seemed important and it was very important to let the water seek it’s level in the supply lines befre he turned the air pump on. I’m proud of my smart son who was patient enough to make this work for me.
I have 5 cups with seeds I started myself and the rest are plants I purchased – rinsed the soil off roots – and planted them in the clay pellets. It feels good to raise some of my own food. (save the earth) *****THIS IS A VERY HELPFUL SITE TO ME*****
I hope someone can be helped with sharing my experience. If many MANY others had not been so helpful in sharing their work I might have given up and gone beck to one column. Thank You — Sylvia – Manchester Indiana USA
