I was quite close to you a few month ago when we moved to Calgary. We spent a night in Swift Current. :)

Maybe I can visit you this summer.

The upland cress has gone to flower. Didn't produce much leaves but put a massive stem.

Here are some pictures of the new system. For right now just the aquaculture part is built. The aquaponics side will be done probably during the summer. Having a few issues with regulating water level to make sure I don't drain one tank and overfill another tank.

Where in the world do you find those huge tanks at...

I think from what I'm seeing in the pics all you need to do is add a stand pipe to get the water level constant so it can't drain out and kill a tank full of fish... the tricky part is with a center bottom drain how do you do a stand pipe that still gets most of the waste out... you might need to come up with something like a stand pipe that goes up with a T or a 6 way connection on the top so you can run a SLO back down to the bottom and still maintain a set water height... something like the attached spider monkey... get my drift? I can sketch it up in SolidWorks if you don't get what I'm laying down from my paint sketch...

Wow, great setup, with your tanks I'd spend the extra money and make them right with centre drains or build something similar.

Unfortunately those tanks aren't that big. They are about 8' diameter, about 20" deep and hold only 2 cubic meter of water. I bought them off of another fish hatchery. I will look more at your idea rininger.

I have looked at those Eco-trap drains and they look pretty cool. There are a few reasons why I did not get them for my place. The first one is their smallest ones are 4 inch and my stand pipes are 3 inch with 2 inch drain lines. The other reason is to get the drain and other items for that drain is over $1,000 usd.

my thought on the spider monkey stand pipe originates from PLJ's monster concrete tank. He uses a grid of PVC along the bottom of the tank to be able to get most of the waste to flow out... the difference is he has a side drain so a traditional SLO works for him. I think you can accomplish the same thing using a center standpipe and just have multiple SLO's branch off from the center standpipe so you can set the height of the water with the standpipe height but still suck water from the bottom to get the waste via SLO.

Here is a link to PLJ's system. There is a picture on this page where he has drained his tank so you see some of his plumbing on the bottom.

another pic on this page
viewtopic.php?f=18&t=12883&start=675

I guess you could just do one T and then a grid of plumbing like he has done instead of the spider monkey... just make sure there is an open T on the top, the water height will be set by whatever the height of the SLO T's in at and in emergency the open T will become a siphon if for some reason the tank should start to fill up faster than the drain can handle but the siphon should break once water level goes back down to the T height. Heck you might not even need the grid of plumbing with a round tank because the fish may swim in a circle which would push the waste to the SLO.

Cracken, use the pictures as a guide and build something similar yourself out of PVC pipe to suit your stand pipes, if you could use the bottom drains it would be an asset. PVC pipe is cheap, the Eco-trap is a great idea, the solids leave under the saucer/dome plus you have the bonus of a centre drain if and when you need to drain the tank.

Or even just run the bottom drains striaght to your filters as per drawing.
