Michael Welber replied to Suzi Gibson's discussion Zip Grow Towers??

Tim Radcliff replied to Sylvia Bernstein's discussion Piping - to PVC or not to PVC? That is the question...
"Is there any metal pipe that is safe? Aluminum? I was thinking about running water through a radiator positioned over a stove to heat the water. Or running PEX through some sort of geothermal mass heater. Does anybody have any experience with these?"

Jim Fisk replied to Blake Allen's discussion 3-tote system - Design questions and pump size questions in the group IBC Aquaponics

"Blake, one inch is fine for your pump feeds but use the thinwall S&D pipe as it has more volume. For the drains keep in mind that sweep 90's and T's start in 1 1/4" and up and you want sweeps not sharp 90's for flow. I use 1…"

Jim Fisk commented on Jim Fisk's group IBC Aquaponics
"Sounds about right Pat. By the ton in regards to gravel: one ton fills 2 IBC GBs to about 12" as well. I am paying 18.00 per ton if I pick it up."

Pat James commented on Jim Fisk's group IBC Aquaponics
"I am considering upgrading my system by converting some of my DWC beds to media. By my calculation a cubic yard of media will fill just over 2 IBC beds at 12 inches depth. Is that correct or did I miss something?"
