Aquaponics system update

Had to widen the diameter of the pipe outlets to aide water flow as this is where the inexplicable leak was coming from.  Water was just backing up in the pipes as drains couldn't keep up with the pump, and turning the flow of the pump rate down meant there wasn't enough water going around… Continue reading Aquaponics system update
