Hi Martin, it’s surprising how quickly time passes by but it’s great to hear from you again, all,is going good here,apart from a minor hic up where Tilapia fry made there way into two of the three troughs and basically removed ever vestige of roots before I discovered them. So I drained one trough taking the opportunity to clean it at the same time and removed the fish, the second trough then got pumped into the first to save water with the last little bit dumped to waste so I could clean the trough.
The lettuce I had then was all transplanted into one trough with a hope they would recover,but it wasn’t to be,because we are in the rainy season with stupidly high humidity which stresses the plant,plus they had no roots which stresses them, Pythium took hold and I had no option but to dump everything and start again and that’s where we are today, iam having a change around crop wise and I have worked out away to expand my grow area within the greenhouse so there’s plenty to do but not much growing of any size.
I will get some pics done and update again.
Scotty I finished that small system and it is was running lovely, they were told they needed rain protection at a minimum for the trough, to do it properly the entire system. So while they were making up there mind what to do, a dog jumped in the trough literally tearing everything apart, then to make matters worse we had some terrible storms which without cover the system suffered more damage, I haven’t heard from since then, I spoke to them after the dog incident but no contact since,which is a shame really.

It would as it was a nice little system that should have produced well, the Koi I purchased for them were lovely little fish and actually they did me a favour as I piggy backed there order with my own and was given a good price per fish, they gave me buy 10 get two free, so far I have bought 140...lol.
Anyway there has been no contact with them for quite a while so I should imagine it’s just sat there, the customer was more academic than hands which was apparent when I built it, the final part was training the guy that was to run it and all seemed ok, maybe I will give them a curtesy call,it wouldn’t hurt.

I see this problem time and time again, especially with organisations or groups. An AP system needs someone to take ownership of it and stay with it. Often one person will be the motivator and instigator, they get a system organised, planned set up and running and everything is great, but if that one person leaves it all becomes too hard until another person steps up and becomes the main responsible person. I've seen it happen with a few school systems, one teacher will be the main instigator and there will be a great system set up and running, but when they leave often it can all turn to poo..
