The team are fastidious about site preparation as seen here in this shot. No installation goes ahead without the spirit level and appropriate tools of trade. Attention to detail is high on the list ensuring they start with a level playing field, I mean site.

This Outback system has a 2000 litre fish tank and 4 growbeds and is located where there will be plenty of sunshine.

The aquaponic system was established to enhance the existing vegetable and herb gardens with a rosemary hedge in this background.

Sparkling water is a welcoming site at the end of a day, looks almost too clean!

Looks good wouldn't those pumps be better in the center of the fish tank to pickup the solids created by the swirl of the grow bed returns !!

The fish swimming around in the fish tank disturbs the waste, before the pumps suck it up. The yabbies can take care of whatever is left :lol:

Great setup , but I agree with FF. A little bit of extra pipe to get one pump into the middle wouldnt hurt

Good idea with running the two pumps.
