Aquaponic build phase 2; plus some pump tests

Pump arrived and I was worried about it being underpowered so did some tests…


Not good results.  Maybe the straw pipe is too narrow? See below…

Caught a time lapse of the second build phase (in full this time) today. 


Downpipes fixed and inlets / outlets drilled. Nearly ready to start farming.

Plant pot holes and plastic cover still to be fixed.  Not a very sustainable build this one but should be a useful experiment.  Once the silicone had set enough I tried to get the pump working:
