File comment: The system was positioned on a custom built level concrete pad. Bliss to the installers of the day, Peter and Matt. The first job is to get the fish tank filling with water.

File comment: The clay filling under way and then it all has to be washed. The area is adjacent to existing vegetable gardens with a passionfruit vine over the fence as the back drop.

File comment: Progress and all is looking particularly neat and tidy. The pump is plumbed in, not much more to be done now.

Hey I assume that pipework is tied up somehow. Can't see in the pic... it's not just hanging off the side of the tank is it? It's tied to the growbeds somewhere....?

Customers don't always appreciate the artistry of pipework glue runs Gemmell, and therefore we have to forget about putting our own creative touches to things :(
Uniformity and high standards are what it is all about. :)
