  • Description
On this richly informative disk, Murray Hallam gives an intensive demonstration of the theory of CHOP 2 Aquaponics (consistent height, one pump). Your requirement is to get yourself 3 x IBC (International Bulk Carrier) containers or tote tanks, as they are known in some parts of the USA. This is the fastest, easiest and cheapest way to get started in aquaponics. IBC tanks of around 1000 litres capacity will give you stability and reliability to grow copious amounts of fish and vegetables.
Murray explains the benefits and takes you through the tools you will need to complete the job. He then shows you all the steps you need go through to cut and separate the tank from the cage, and takes you through all the stages in cutting out and preparing the grow beds and fish tank ready to be become a fish- and food-production system.  We re-shot a number of scenes to make sure every step is explained in detail.  

Murray will give you an overview of the auto-siphons; he even built a see-through, perspex siphon so you can see how it works in real time. The main plumbing fittings are explained in detail so you will understand what to use and why, and where the fail points are and how to avoid them.

The PDF file included on this disk contains written plans with measurements of the various layouts of the IBC tanks, so you can create a wonderful aquaponics system anywhere in the world.  The PDF is full of photos and graphics, and includes an extensive parts list with a photo of every fitting and tool you will need to complete the job.
