I'm starting a newer and bigger system the goal is produce as much fish and lettuce as feasible, I have 1 800 Gallon Tank and a additional 7, 330 Gallon IBC totes. The green house is 22 X 30 and i only plan to use a portion of it for Aquaponics.

I plan to bury the fish tanks so i can put my A-Frame NFT system for lettuce above it, when it comes time to harvest the fish i plan to have the entire A-Frame be able to lift a foot off the ground and pivoted to either side to access the fish tank.

I plan on using an airlift to transport the water from the fish tanks to the growbed however i still haven't thought of a way to get the water from the grow bed to the A-Frame. I plan of having the lettuce in 3" pipe with a 2" net pot. Im sure i want to use a Airlift to get it there but where would I put that sump? also since the growbed is flood and drain it might make the NFT go without water periodically. The growbed is 16 X 4 and i would also need finer solid filter aswell. Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Only initial thought.. AirLifts don't raise very much..
They either lift a small amount a.small distance.or a very small.amount, a.slightly greater height.. IMHO

FILTERS... CONSIDER wads of polyester roof insulation, that can be reused or thrown away .

And.. from my experience, I would go a different.route..
I started with a.classic IBC system and had problems.. most of this problems were caused by stupidity, but having gone a different way with my second system, I have to say that I would never do it the first way again..
.
The second system is a split system, where growing the fish ( Aquaculture - RAS) and the plant growing ( HYDROPONICS) are forever split, and I am loving the difference..

This where I got the idea that an airlift might work, does it give misinformation?

Have you used the polyester sheets before? They look like they could become clogged easily.
