the


desired


lengths


are


then


pushed


onto


the


spickets

and

placed


in


the


grow

medium

next


to


each

plant.

The


system

pumps


are


operated


by

a

timer


which

turns


them

on

and

off


at


your


desired


period


of


time,
pumping

water


to


the


plants

and

then


allowing

the


cleaned


water


to


return

to


the


fish

tank


via


the


gravity


feed
system.

Below
is


an

Aquaponics


combination


pump


and

gravity


feed


system.




The


grow

beds

are


elevated


slightly

on
one
end

to


facilitate

a

downhill


effect.



The


water


is


pumped

from

the


fish

tank


to


the


grow

beds

where


it

flows
to

the


low


end

of


the


grow

beds

allowing

the


water


to


flow


back

to


the


fish

tank.



The


fish

tank


or


trench
whether
it

be

round

or


other


wise


shaped,

is


sunk

into

the


earth


with


a

drain


at


the


bottom.



Notice


the


sides


of
the

tank


(we'll

use

tank


here)


are


sloping

toward


the


center


where


the


drain


is


located.



This


particular

set


up
will

not


only


pump


the


water


from

the


tank,


but


will


also


remove


the


majority


of


fish

waste

settlement


form

the
bottom
of


the


tank.
