iAVs using buckets

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am planning to build a home in india ( presently working KSA) and thinking of doing Aquaponics system (iAVs) on terrace due to shortage of land.

I wonder if I could use buckets instead of sand bed to reduce the load.

Sure you can use buckets, however the container you choose to use is not representing the main load, so I can't see how that will represent much of a weight reduction on a system ?

The sand & water is what should be your main focus and/or concern regarding weight, and it is a really important point to be sure that the place you put it can handle the total load :thumbsu:

There is a few pictures of small "bucket size" systems in different threads/posts, @vkn have some nice ones in his trial thread IMO

Here is one " EASY " 

Here is another EASY update from project A..

EASY = educational aquaponics systems for you

 

 

 

  

You being from India I recommend reading the hole thread, let us know how you progress with however system you choose, good luck on the journey

cheers

thanks Ande and noted your comments.

buckets I thought can be scattered on the terrace unlike sand (long ) bed which may cause more load to that particular area.

regards

Mohamed
