Put together your first aquaponics system made from two standard recycled bath tubs. These can usually be sourced from your local tip or recycling centre for a small fee.

A bath tub aquaponics system works very well and is very simple to operate. It will give you good results if properly managed and you can get started for little outlay. It is possible to expand your bath tub kit later if you wish.

You can raise 10 Silver Perch or similar in the bottom tub that acts as the fish tank, and a steady supply of lettuce, tomatoes and the like in the top bath tub that becomes the grow bed.

You will need the following:

Provided by you:

Two bath tubs
Six besser bricks (concrete blocks)
A quantity of recycled timber or plywood to make a cover for the fish tank.
Sikaflex in caulking gun
Spirit Level
Mattock or crowbar if your ground is hard
Growing medium ( Canna clay pebbles or Gravel )
House brick

Provided by us in our Bath Tub Accessory Kit:

One plug and waste fitting (with plug and strainer).
One Autosiphon kit
One pump and hose kit
Fittings - connectors, clamps, pipe and various fittings as needed
Instructions for setting up the system using this kit
