Wow What a recovery Rup.I have been in a similar same situation with a pond full show quality koi that i was growing out for a mate :( .Mum was not to impressed to come home to find her bath tub and kitchen sink full of fish all bleeding from the gills with stress. We managed to save about 30% of them so not a total loss. :mrgreen:

Sorry to hear about the jumpers. :cry:

Do you still sell all those herbs you grow... or do you just reallly really like pesto?

Actually baked trout stuffed with basil pesto might not be too bad!

Well, after a few distractions... :roll:

Got back to the Bakki Shower project today...

Remodelled the shower support... (again).... and it's satisfactory...

But struck a minor problem.... the length of the bins fitted nicely as four across the tank...

But I forgot to take into account the width of the tubing when I made the bin structures...

Doh... about 200mm out... and the way the holes are drilled in the bins... just wasn't going to work with four across...

So took out a pair of bins... I obviously had two bins left over... and another couple of spares...

So I could have gone 3 rows x 3 high.... but doubted the support structure would hold the weight...

So 3 rows, two high it is...

Replumbed the two rows of drum filters, the Bakki... and a spare (temp) outlet... onto an aquaponics sequencing valve...

And fired it up...

Still have some gluing to do on the other lines... so set the valve to the Bakki outlet... and put the timer on "manual"... will run it overnight like that ... even though that means the other filters will be offline tonight...

Warm here... tank pushing 23.3... and still that way when I put the Bakki online about 22:00...

But a gentle breeze blowing... and I'll ice about midnight if temps aren't down a lot...

Another warm one expected tomorrow... about 33 degrees...

Hey rup....

I noticed that the bottom supports are still sagging...

here are a couple easy fixes.... called ladder supports

they are extremely strong and light weight...

Thanks JT, certainly would have liked to have built something like that... especially the bottom diagram...

Just was limited to what materials I had on hand... and thought that they would be sufficient...

The bowing isn't too bad... and I'm confident that it'll last the distance, at least in the short term while I try the Bakki out... and hopefully cool things enough to grow the trout out for a while longer...

But many thanks for the diagrams.. have filed them for future reference....

Are you using a pipe with holes in it to feed the boxes?

Actually, ended up making another... and spaced the holes to the bins... and added another hole each side of the "angled" holes...

[quote="RupertofOZ"]MAJOR HSM... occurring at the moment...

Was about to go up the post office to see if my vacuum sealer had arrived...

Thought I'd do a quick check to make sure I hadn't left any hoses running.... I have a habit of doing that... :roll:

Noticed the filters on the trout tank weren't running... strange I thought....

No bloody wonder.... the tank was near dry....
