Electrical Automation with a Purpose

5 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone,

My name is Bryan, I am the Program Director of the Electrical Trades Program and my local community collage and I started an aquaponics system as a way show students "process control" we have a one, 2 55 gallon barrel setup going right now and have the material to make 4 more set ups

This system also allows students to produce organic vegetables for the student food bank.

We are growing snow peas, radishes, lettuce, and tomatoes right now and have bull head, shiner minnow and 3 spices of gold fish. We figured we would get the system dialed in before we added edible fish.

Coolest thing for us is our system is 100% automated, after we hit the start button and input fish food, system is hands off.

Hi Bryan and welcome to APN,

I love the way you have integrated technology with growing food.

I also love your sticker work :D

So I take it you still manually test the water? and how often do you test it now?

Cheers.
