Ebb and Flow
by Jeff DeLargie
(London, Ontario, Canada)
I have an Ebb and Flow system (Aquaponics) with Tilapia. I had the ebb and flow working and then put in my grow media. Now my ebb and flow fills, then empties and then I hear the sucking of air and it doesn't fill *eye twitch*
I have a 1" stand pipe then 2 90 deg elbows after it leaves the bottom on the grow bed. The space between the two elbows (My horizontal stretch) is about 6 inches. I have played with that length and found it didn't help.
The bell siphon is 2" and my fill guiard (filter) is 3". With the cap on the bell siphon I have no room for the tube a lot of people put in the goes from the top of the bell siphon and runs down the side. agggg
I have 19 Tilapia, I lost one in a pump accident. :(
