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..

    Hi Guys,

    Just saw the plans and just placed my order too!
    My only question (which may be stupid) is how the clear skin attaches to the framework?

    Im not a fan of just draping it over and hoping it stays put..

    Just use rural 50 mm cheaper than high pressure unless you want to do a extra wide shade house. Mine is 4 x 6 metres and I used Rural with the old wide star pickets. At present time I use it for my chook house.

    Instead of using PVC pipe I used top hat batterns and screwed it to the poly pipe.
