Drip System

The Aquaponic Drip System below shows a simplified diagram of a drip system.  The red spots represent the plants.  This type of system is widely used to produce plants in a grow bed medium.  The nutrient rich fish water is pumped from the fish tanks to provider manifolds positioned above the grow beds.  Holes are drilled into the manifolds and small tubing spickets are inserted into these holes and glued into place.  Drip tubes cut into the desired lengths are then pushed onto the spickets and placed in the grow medium next to each plant.  The system pumps are operated by a timer which turns them on and off at your desired period of time, pumping water to the plants and then allowing the cleaned water to return to the fish tank via the gravity feed system.
