Designing a Sustainable Aquaponics System: An Inventor’s Touch

One of the key strengths behind a sustainable aquaponics system, the growing of fish and plants together within a mutually supporting system, is the notion of increasing natural efficiencies….

    Bbjo?

    Quick question about your lighting – are those full spectrum fluorescent
    bulbs? Would you happen to know the wattage? 40? It’s huge that you’re
    doing this without glass. Thanks for a really interesting video!?

    Apologies if something has already been posted like this but I’m curious if
    anyone else has built or knows more details on the dehumidifier heat pump
    shown in this video. It looks like a modded commercial unit but his mention
    of freon makes me think he modded an air conditioner to dehumid/heat.

    I’ve seen a few others post on rocket stoves and other heat sources but
    curious on dehumidification as that is also a need for hoop house,
    greenhouse, etc efficiency.?

    This is called an air source heat pump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! already been
    invented?

  5. LivingHistorySchool says:

    so the fish now cost 25 dollars a pound

    My question is does this aquaponics system make economic sense? because I
    see so many energy consumers in the system

    No sir, I’m with you. I started on a small scale aquaponics in a hoop house
    on the side of my shop. Would love to up grade to a larger scale to be able
    to work with the people around me and feed ALL. …… .But, till that
    happens I get the motivation from people like you. Thank you sir.

    I’m with you!

    I like listening to intellegent people talk about what they know best.
    Thank you.

    what is your feed cost for the fish

  11. Gary L says:

    Are you using a stainless steel Condensation coil? If it is galvanized then
    you may be running the risk of introducing zinc into your fishtank. At UGA
    we tried to reuse the water and from the coils found that it was loaded
    with zinc. Interesting design. thanks for the post.

    Thank you! Also checkout 99Aquaponics website on how to make your own
    aquaponics.

    If you have a question for Mr. Jungwirth, please check the description box
    just below the video. There you will find a link to his website.

    Hi, I’m from Mumbai. We have very high temperature and highhumidity. How do
    we cool the water in a cost effective way.

  15. ImNotAsGoodAsDevin says:

    You could put this nearly anywhere if you added some solar panels!

  16. Adiah Mackleden says:

    Thanks for the video. I also have some guidelines to grows up to 10 x the
    plants, by 50 % time, with more healthy plants, while the “fish” execute
    all the work…” help1.info/aquaponics-tutorial

  17. Reginald Maynard says:

    how can i get more information from you

  18. Hans Frans says:

    how much you pay for the electricity to run it indoor and not in a
    greenhouse? would like to know if it`s profitable :)

  19. Graham Chiu says:

    Any risk to the fish from all that copper piping?

  20. watima6 says:

    where i can buy tilapia seeds form feed in my farm my email
    w.atima@yahoo.com thanks

  21. mrhempoilsoldier says:

    wow thats fantastic

  22. Paul Statchen says:

    Interesting?

  23. Nick Tuttle says:

    Lately I’ve been intrigued with the idea of self sufficiency. This kind of
    stuff is just awesome!?

  24. bizpromotion says:

    Awesome tips for aquaponics worldwide!

  25. Michael Greene says:

    Would you be willing to help me build your heat recovery system? Its the
    coolest thing I have seem in years!
