But EB your also filling your systems with Hydroton no? I assume that's a big cost in what is otherwise a relatively cheap system. This one for sale only has blue metal by the looks of it.

Yeah the IBC systems we were selling were with 4 bags of clay, but, everyone had to cut up the IBC's, clean them and paint them themselves...

Hi Food & Fish,

Could you let me know where you buy your plumbing fittings, syphon, pump and IBC from for $200? Unfortunately we seemed to have been duped and paid $200 for the food grade IBC by itself.

The aquaponic pepole that know me know i dont pay full price for anything so looking at your costs its not a bad price
so i say sorry for the post
:oops:

On the one hand what I paid for mine - IBC plus basic bits (gravel was free) would come to less than $180 - that's IBC, pump, pipes and air pump. It doesn't actually say you get the media and transporting it would be a significant cost unless you live just down the road.

On the other hand I'd want to know what the painting was - IBC's are notoriously difficult to paint with anything approaching a long-term solution unless you do it right. I'd want to know what the pump is and how long it has been running and if it has been on constantly or start/stop. I'd want to know if the system has been set up for expansion possibilities or will I need to buy in plumbing parts to add a GB/filters/FT etc.

On the gripping hand I would say that seems a reasonable price - there are similar systems out there for a LOT more money and about the only difference for some of them would be they don't use a part-IBC for the GB.
