@Jeff. Greetings. Teaching unit. Allows flexibility and experimentation in use. For example, are two airstones enough in the growbed or do we need all 6? Where is the best place for water to return to the grow bed? Both ends, middle. Front only? Back? Etc. Etc. Etc

Why so many inlet lines to the DWC?

The new DWC unit looks great!  Looks like a great group of students too!

Aquaponics AGS-166 class May 6th 2015. Last class before finals! (Foreground, the new Deep Water Culture aquaponics unit)

After finals and they are still smiling. A great group of students.

This group is a wonderful group. Al came over and he is going to help me move my system and thus keep it! Thank you, Al. You're a GEM. Robert called, and has some pipe, and I will be calling him later to find out when convenient to get. You guys are all awesome, and I want everyone to know that apparently, we AP people are some mighty fine folks!!

Al, how very kind of you to offer to help, and I appreciate it so much. But honestly, it would require a pallet jack or something, and truth be told, there is a pool in the back, that takes up most of the yard, so that there is little other place for the system other than along side of the pool, where it will then have issues with falling leaves from my huge ash tree, not to mention it will be exposed to all manner of heat this summer. At this time, I think the best thing is either too sell it or take it down (and store the IBC somewhere, god only knows where, since I have two full sheds already. This is an older neighborhood, with only single car carports/garages, and thus I don't have a lot of space. My husband hates it, doesn't help other than feed the fish, and we are contemplating selling the house, so maybe in a future lifetime, I can have a system again. I do have an aquarium inside, with a mini growbed and a light, so I am not giving up AP altogether, just the outside for now.

Sounds like you're frustrated.. if you would like some help I will call you in the morning and donate my time to you to help you get your system moved or backup running. If that would be ok with you...just let me know..
