18 reasons why air lift pumps make so much sense and why you should seriously consider this methodology for your Aquaponics system. (Yes your home Aquaponics system will benefit as well) Here is the list. 1. No more submersible pumps. 2. Lower install cost. 3. No need for additional Earth Leakage Safety cut out switch. (GFI outlet) Higher safety threshold. 4. So simple even school children can do the install. 5. Virtually maintenance free. 6. No moving parts. K.I.S.S. 7. Easily pump solids. 8. Stock separation. 9. Increase water lift. 10. Save electrical energy cost. 11. Go way beyond common lift provided by a regular submersible. 12. Pump higher than ever before. 13. Turbo drive your water pump. 14. Turbo drive aeration. 15 . . .
Pumps like sucking up filth and dirt. This ultimately leads to total destruction. Look at this disgusting mess. The possibilities of killing everything in the Aquaponics system is very high starting with pump failure, quickly followed by fish deaths. OK, it will take a bit longer to kill the plants but not too long to kill all the fish. The possibilities of killing everything in the Aquaponics system is very high starting with pump failure, quickly followed by fish deaths. OK, it will take a bit longer to kill the plants but not long at al to experience fish deaths. So, what is the problem? Very simple, = poor maintenance regime. So many home systems in particular, suffer from poor pump maintenance. The pump should be looked at weekly . . .

Grid Power is very convenient for powering our every need including Aquaponics, but how reliable and affordable will it be into the future? Grid power is very convenient. It is the desire of almost every Aquaponics operator to ultimately run their system independently of t . . .
Murray Hallam believes we need to eat clean unpolluted fish and vegetables. Choosing the right tank is something that needs careful consideration. Choosing a tank suitable for aquaponics is probably a no brainer. Many people grab the first thing that suits their budget, but . . .
