Update Aquaponics Swirl Filter

This is just a quick post to show how the new new swirl filter is going.

I have since moved it over to the other side of the aquaponics grow bed, more for a look thing than anything else.

As you can see in this video just how much stuff is collected in the bottom of the Radial flow filter. I have since cleaned it out a few more times and I can not believe just how much muck it collects every time.

I’m thinking I may have to update the aquaponics swirl filter to a black bucket? The light coming in through the white bucket has started to cause some green algae to grow on the inside. Not a lot but will just keep an eye on it.

A friend of mine has a 7 bed system and we are going to look at putting in a much larger swirl filter in. Going to look at what we can do on Thursday so will take some photos and post an up-date on what we are thinking.

Will also ry to do a sort video showing her set-up.

Till next time,

Happy Gardening!
