A compact, attractive aquaponics grow bed designed with the aquaponic gardener in mind! Comes ready to go out of the box – pre-drilled, with media guard and a complete bell siphon set-up (ships separately).
What is the advantage of a bell siphon?
You can run your pump continuously, which both extends the life of your pump AND enables you to use the water flow to continuously oxygenate your fish tank through an aeration bar.
No timer needed, so you can eliminate a mechanical device which could fail
When the water is sucked out of a grow bed via siphoning action it pulls far more oxygen through the grow media than a simple draining by gravity does.
The physics of siphons are just plain cool! See this video we shot of Alan explaining how siphons work to a forth grade class
