Aquaponics Set Up Tips

  • When setting up, always start with good quality pond equipment and don't cut the power chord as it will void the warranty
  • Always try to use the largest diameter hose as possible and cut the smaller hose tails off
  • Plant leafy greens into the tray - they grow quickly and provide fresh vegetables for the kitchen table (make sure you take the soil off the roots before planting)
  • Next, add the animals marron and silver perch are perfect for eating

Pump and Filter Features

  • The heart of any successful water garden system is the pump and filtration system
  • The PondMAX pressure filter is a high efficiency pressurized pond filtration system with an integrated UV-C cleaner - this takes out any bacteria or excess algae spores
  • The filter works through a multi stage cleaning process it has a back wash rinsing system and can be used in line for water features to keep them clean
  • The PondMAX pump has low power consumption and has the extra efficient and long lasting vortex impellor inside the case
  • It can shift solids up to 8mm which is important when water has fish waste debris in it
