1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

      I'm about to build a moderately sized system as a suburban aquaponics solution.
      I welcome you to check it out here http://www.aquaponics.net.au/forum/showthread.php?t=2360&page=1

      Since I was thinking on trying your version of the mega-siphon on a design that is quite strange, I need as much feedback as I can get :)

      Peace

      I got it...thanks for the help....DWV thru me for a minute....
      DWV stands for Drain Waste Vent.....here in the USA we have that stuff but regular PVC is available at the local hardware store...and its OK for potable water....
      I was wondering if you drilled an additional hole in your barrels or did you find some kind of bung fitting that will fit the existing bungs....? Id like to use that hole. I havent checked to see if its a regular pipe fitting or special.....
      what say you.....cant tell from your pictures....

    If the siphon will not start there is not enough water flow.....if it will not stop there is too much.
