"At Olomana Gardens the smallest pump we use in Aquaponics is generally 24 watt Hakko or Matella on a /3/4 inch or 1" riser pipe. Normal water depth is 2 foot fish tank and we pump two feet above the water level, or 100 & head. Normally we…"

Hi Glenn, I'm interested in getting your plans also. I'm interested in putting a raft into the system similar to what was in one of your videos that you showed during your conference presentation.

I was watching your videos with Senator ?. I was interested in the 28 watt air pump that could be run on the solar cell. I would like specifics of the hardware and where could I get them. I am sorry it took so long to get back to you. I am a snow bird. I live in Michigan. summers and Florida, winters. This winter I will be setting up AP system. 

I joined Maui group because I have a one week timeshare around Halloween. So every two years, I visit for two weeks. I would like to visit some AP systems.

I've been watching the videos as time allowed with grandkids visiting. Drawback was I had to download each video. Even with a cable connection, it would download, play and then download if I tried to stream it. So it's taken more time to assemble the library to watch them. I've done some of the tests, but mostly just watching the videos. With active systems, I tend to go for the meat and potatoes of the subjects to apply to my working systems.
Good stuff and wish everything was more centrally located online last year when I jumped into this. Getting there though.

Hey, Glenn.  Great to hear from you.  I"m sending you an email this afternoon about the conference.  Looking forward to catching up...good god you have been busy!

Hi Glenn, just FYI, construction of my system based on your "tray-ponics" ideas is coming along.  See http://aquaponicscommunity.com/group/sacramento-aquaponics/forum/topics/10-x-12-aquaponics-greenhouse-build-downtown-sac.  I'm ever grateful!

Hi Glen,

Welcome to our lil site. I hope you find what you are looking for here.

I was wondering if you have access to Master Cho's people to donate a one of their books to me. I understand the process and have been making my own brews and teas for years but find it nice to have books for reference from true authorities.

Cheers

Glenn, welcome!  Hope this site is useful to you.  Your videos (both the free one and the ones with the paid course) on the University of Hawaii site are FANTASTIC!  Thanks - you've helped me so much!  Best wishes in all your endeavors.

getting water higher using air pumps.

Posted on July 24, 2013 at 2:15am 4 Comments

Jon has the right idea, dig a well or resovoir that is capped at the bottom.

We find 4 to eight feet is great. 

It takes 1/2 PSi per foot of depth to get the air lift started. After the air is displacing the water, the water is lighter and it takes less air. A 5 psi pump is the strongest we have ever used. 5 psi will inject air in at 10 foot depth. 

We use TWO inputs on heights over 20 foot. 

Dig the well to say four foot, pump the…

Olomana Gardens, what we do different?

Posted on July 1, 2012 at 11:02pm 3 Comments

Olomana Gardens  take on Aquaponics:
We practice  Vermi-Aero-Aqua-Ponics.
Sure,  we have the fish and the plants. We do the "total recovery"....keep the fish solids in the system, not flushing them out. We run parallel feed of fish solid water (from fish tank) to the bio-filter beds. Such that if I have three bio-filter beds, all three get an even distribution of the "dirty water".  Then we have Indian Blue worms to eat the fish solids. We move the water input each…

Sylvia has posted my drawing of bucket siphons, air pumps and tea makers at http://aquaponicscommunity.com/page/glenn-martinez-aquaponics-manual. Enjoy. Some of the designs are "patent pending" but only for manufacturing rights. Individuals, non-protits and educational are free to make their own devices for use. It just when you cross the line to manufacturing that we need an agreement. Enjoy, these devices…

Air lift pumps in Aquaponics

Posted on May 31, 2012 at 1:21am 93 Comments

I have been working with air lifts in Aquaponics and wondering if anyone else is trying them. 

We first tried the air lifts to deal with a problem of theft at school locations. Submersible pumps were being stolen regularly. So we put the air pump in the class room, a super quiet model, and ran the air line out the upper window to the fish tank. We had to invent our own pump because we could not find a commercial model.

If anyone is interested I will email them…
