I need help to design my Aquaponics System

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

The is my first post as I have just found the forum.

 

I am hoping someone will give me some design ideas to get my

Aquaponics System started in the right direction.

 

Here is what I have:

 

I have a 20 x 40 Cement Pond (aka Swimming Pool).

 

It has had goldfish for the past 20 years or so. I do not

filter or circulate the water and the goldfish have grown

and also have raised 100's of baby goldfish so I have

many different sizes.

 

I plan on using the water for several different plant systems.

 

Will I need more than one pump?

 

How large of pump?

 

And also pumps to pump the water back to cement pond.

 

I hope I have given enough information for someone to

guide me in the right direction so as not to have to be

changing systems setup.

 

Have a great day,

Vic

HI Vic,

 

Welcome to APN.

 

I have a 20 x 40 Cement Pond (aka Swimming Pool).

 


 

Oh, you lucky person.  I would love a cement pond of those dimensions.

 

How deep is the pond/pool?

 

Take a look at this thread......and I'll talk to you some more later.

Hello Murray,

I also like the idea of combining re-purposed swimming pools with wicking beds...while also using them to grow fish.   Swimming pools excite me for the amount of rainwater that they can hold as much as anything else.
