Hey guys. Great video. I watched the whole thing because I'm changing my design for my second system from netab's setup to the one you guys detailed in the IBC document. However, I do have a couple of questions.

1. Could you guys give me a detailed rundown on how you guys were able to get the standpipe to go through the cap of the IBC? From my experience the thread in the cap did not run through to the inside so I am a little confused as to how you guys were able to get the standpipe going through there without just siliconing it up like crazy. Or does the outer diameter of the 25 mm part fit perfectly in the inner diameter of the 50 mm pipe? Or is the standpipe just sitting on top of that fitting and not threaded or fitted in?

2. How necessary are the wooden beams? I have concerns about leaving it just metal on metal as I can imagine an earthquake or something making it slide off. Would I be able to get away using cable ties or rope? I am wary of using cable ties as they get older and brittle I can imagine them snapping. Also, if you weren't able to source used lumber what would you recommend?

Thanks again guys, this document is the bees knees!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that new lumber would also do the job.

Rather than cable ties or rope I'd look to use either stainless steel hose clamps, as used to hold radiator hoeses and the like on, or if you can find them in a suitable size, wire rope saddles like these:

If I'm imagining something different to your asking I'm sorry for giving you conflicting advice!

Looks like the vultures have circled:

A seller called yohanware from Lawnton, QLD, Australia

* Seed pack with 20 different types of vegitables to grow.

Not included are hoses which you can purchase from any hardware store.

A detailed guide on how to use this kit in many different ways can be found here. http://www.backyardaquaponics.com/compo ... e/180.html

Fish choices: (subject to availability)

Growbed auto siphen assembly kit

It is made assuming a standard 300mm (1 foot) deep grow bed. The bed will be filled by a regulated continuous flow from the pump.

When the bed is full and begins to overflow down the internal upstand of the auto siphon assembly, a siphon is established.
The water is rapidly evacuated from the grow bed.
When the water is evacuated the siphon is broken and the bed will commence filling again.

Shipping available at buyers expense, will vary depending on your location. Your welcome to arrange your own pick up of the kit from Strathpine, QLD. Note I am unable to send to TAS or WA due to quarantine laws.

NOTE THIS IS A DIY KIT - NO SUPPORT OR WARRANTY/RETURNS ARE OFFERED OR ACCEPTED. There are plenty of guides on the internet to assist with construction. A good one can be found here http://www.backyardaquaponics.com/compo ... e/180.html

Oh, Im so glad his seeds have 'Individuality' packaging... I find that trait somewhat lacking in todays youth.
Perhaps they may now grow into something with 'Peasonality'!?!

Don't you just love these band wagon jumpers?
Especially his "vegitables" from "liters" or "litres" of water, with "siphens" or "auto siphens" with a cycling time of "four weeks"!! before getting your choice of 50 fish . . .
Must definitely have very special IBC's for that to occur.
I will be reporting on ebay about this very spurios creature.
Might even pay him a visit :twisted:
Cheers IanK

Downloads have slowed a little from the initial rush, but there are still quite a few.. For the first 2 days of August there were over 330 downloads.. At least that's my assumption and calculation, there was 12.86 GB of bandwidth for downloads of that file, at 38MB at comes out to about 338 downloads..

Released on the 20th, so there were 11 days till the end of July and over that 11 days, a bit shy of 3000 downloads.. Thats not bad, certainly getting aquaponics to a few more people that had never heard of it I imagine..

I also wish to thank you for this IBC PDF. As I am a stay at home Dad, my wife is on the side printing it off at work for me under the noses of her colleagues!

She is about two thirds through! I am hungry for the last bit!

Out of interest, I read somewhere there is a barrel version of the PDF in progress. When is that due out?
