Single Barrel Gutter Growbed Set Completed

Single Barrel set with mini #guttergrowbed that I started building last week completed below is the photo update of the final build.


Siphon installed a above, it's the same 15 mm siphon that I was experimenting for the last 1 year or so which I can safely says it's good.


Siphon close up.


Potted media in place for trial running.


Water inflow is a simple "T" with elbows on the end preventing it to slip and drop off. Water pump use here is Astro AS1000, which rated at 1000 Liter per hour with 1 m head.


The actual first flush of this setup, it works like a charm. The far end is water feed from pump using this style of coupling.


With instant plants from adjacent #guttergrowbed. This set I may use initially as a seed starter and once it has fully mature I will see what to do with it. One of the growbed I may not use pots, this is to test the siphon with full growbed setting.

We'll see in few months how this small simple low cost unit function.

Total cost approximately RM 160.00 that's USD 38.00 inclusive hydroton and pots.

    1. Glad to hear that, aquaponics awareness is still low in Malaysia and I am doing my part in trying to get more people exposure to it.

      Thanks.
