That's it water running,first plants in,now only 7 more to go. I have cheated a bit by having seedlings already started,just waiting for the rest of the gravel now.

Question,could I run a 2inch pipe from the grow bed to the top of the water fall and grow lettuce,it's approx 12ft in length,running through the shade of the undergrowth. Through the hot season it's in broken shade and has the cooling effect from the pond. Holes every 10 inches so I can place a modified plastic water cup,filled with coir and take a feed from the pump,returning it over the water fall. Never done anything like this before so I thought I would ask the people that know. The pic show it's position.

Hi Dasboot,

This is what my wife put in front of me tonight for dinner. With Basil from our IBC system (which by the way is not running as good as I would like to see).

Pork filet filled with a mix of Mozzarella and basil with a tomato onion sauce, spaghetti al dente and some "fresh" veggies on the side. The wine is of course in my hand, not in the picture. Maybe something to make your wife enthusiastic for? :D

That does look so good,my wife bless her was not blessed with the best culinary skills,iam sure she could burn cornflakes if I left her alone.
I planted a cutting of Basil,mint and another plant they use in Lap,the raw buffallo dish,even though the system is in it's infancy,plus iam still working on everything they have got there feet down into the water and are growing by the day.
Still waiting for my gravel,the guy that was going to riddle it out of the river has a foot the size of a football,so he's laid up,so sat with several empty growbeds,just selfish if you ask me lol.
Question for you,how do you check your PH,my pen is on the fritz,just wondered if you sourced a test kit or anything here in Thailand,over here the pet shops have either closed or the test kit thing is alien to them,maybe have to go to one of the bigger cities,or get one sent over from the uk,maybe even Backyard Aquaponics,there kit is bound to be well tested and reliable,might drop them a message.
Many thanks for the post,can't wait now to get a plate of my produce the same,such a great incentive.

Global House sells a simple pool test kit (Ph and Chlorine) which you could try. I just bought one but didn't try it yet.

The kit I'm using now is from Seachem, a multitest kit for Ph, Alkaline, Nitrite, Nitrate, free Ammonia and total ammonia. Ordered it from Bangkok by mail. Price was around Baht 1,360. They sold the going kit that is mostly used up to recent but decided that this one makes them more money, Thai decease.

It's a fiddle kit, I don't like it and wouldn't buy it again.

Mid may we go to Bangkok and will have a look around there. Sure we will find the right stuff and let you know where.

It's one of those things isn't,I think I will bite the bullet and get a pen sent over from the UK,it's the only thing that's important to me and it's the only thing that breaks,the law according to sod.

These pens they sell in Thailand, too. We have a kind of office centre here that sells all kinds of stuff. Thought about getting a pen myself. If you have a bit of patience, can let you know one of these days the price and brand. Maybe we can even find out the distri for it here in Thailand and order directly, saving some bucks.

Ok,I will do a little more investigating, the nearest city to me is Chaing Rai,I know of one aquarist centre but it's very poor,but just by the size of the city it can't be the only one.i will take my pen along with me someone somewhere is sure to know,I will keep you posted .

Allright. By the way, I used yesterday evening this swimming pool Ph/Chlorine kit from Global House (only the Ph test) and compared it to the the Seachem one. Both the same result, but the Global House is much easier in use. For 195 Baht not a bad deal I think and you can start reading your Ph again.

Check these guys in Bangkok, too. They're not bad and relatively good service.

Well the guy with the bad foot called Nong,not sure what is other foot was called........still has a bad foot,so how hard can it be to go and get your own river stone. If I could swear on here I would,that is such hard work,still that it the first four beds filled and running. The first barrel is filled with Pumis,I already had it,it absorbs water,it's inert and has a huge surface area.The only trouble is it's on the big size,I have ran it flood and drain and it stays wet,iam running this constant flood 7 until 7 then flood and drain through the night,20 mins on 45 off. I will plant this barrel with papaya,I think it might suit the larger media.
Please if anyone can see if iam going wrong or a better way of doing things,please give me a shout.

Well,there has been a lot of work for not much change really,one step forward two back. Anyway the frame and position for the second for grow beds is finished,but I took the first four apart to make changes. The standpipes and media guards were changed for a slightly bigger design,the height of the frame was lowered and the cradles for the barrels were copied from the PDFs available here,works so much better.The parts to complete the original frame are made,just need putting together,tomorrows job,then back down the river for more gravel.
The occupants are doing well,mix now of Koi,Goldfish, a cat fish they call Baduk and Bah nine,some orange others traditional Tilapia.
