CRAFTS - Constant Return Aquaponics Feeder Tank System

Revisit my CRAFT system, incorporating it with the gutterbed. This system water in the return tank is always at constant height and maximise its volume for optimum fish growth.

The original CRAFTS set was made few years ago circa 2013 with traditional growbed and now I am combining it with my gutter set. It is best to combine it so that I could maximise the water volume for growing vegetable and fish.

My initial set above, just require minor modification to its water feed.

Single pump feeding 8 gutterbed, the pump is rated at 3000 litre per hour. It works great and the price is very reasonable.

Doing an initial leak test, if gutter leak then I would use hot glue gun to fix it.

Siphon outer enclosure, this are made from 82mm uPVC pipes with end cap. The 82mm pipes were cut to about four and a half inches.

Siphon in a row, those outlets provides double Venturi making the siphon works better. Water inflow is very small, it will trigger siphon action without problem.

Racking in place waiting for gutters to made up the gutterbed over a fish tank kinda setup. This gives me another set of planting space.

This installation I am using 15 mm siphon with 25x15 reducer as the funnel, the stand pipe is set at 4 inches water height. Flushing occur without problem and looks like the siphon is easier to make with this size reducer as compared to the 32x15 reducer which may require cutting of the reducer to reduce height.

Thanks for watching.

Adding another tank for my aquaponics

Giving more water volume and planting space to my backlane set. The fish tank is a 60x30x24 size tank and it’s the same as the earlier one that I have.

Thanks for watching.

Modifying The Old Rack

The rack had been replace, next to modify this and make it last longer.

Thanks for watching.

Replacing the old rack.

The rack I made yesterday will replace the old rack which I need to modified making it more compact just like this new build.

It’s quite a straight forward job, took me about two and a half hours to redo the set.

Thanks for watching.

Making another rack.

Another rack for my gutterbed.

This to replace old rack that I need to modify and then use for another tank.

Thanks for watching.

Pots and Pots

There are so many pots that I have checked and tested in my Aquaponics Gutterbed set, from orchids pots to square pots. Due to the shape of the gutter it was difficult to get the right pots for it.

Initially I use hollow tubes to provides support for the pots to get it level and stable.

Finally I manage to find the right pot made by Gafri product code GP 170, this so far the only pots that I found which is big enough to and just narrow at bottom to be place in the gutters without problem. There are two colours available white and brown.

Gafri GP170

They are available from Plants nursery for around RM1.60 to RM2.00 depending on where you shop. I bought it from Greenish City GardenMart in Shopee.

Gafri is not a big manufacturer of pots like Babas so do search around for these if you not able to get the right size pots.

Babas RD170

The Babas RD 170 won’t fit into the gutter growbed.

Thank you.
