Aquaponics: Paradigm Shift with Airlift
Thursday, May 30, 2013.
eXtension Freshwater Aquaculture Community of Practice (CoP),
The eXtension Freshwater Aquaculture Community of Practice (CoP) will be presenting a webinar on aquaponics. Those that have a background in aquaponics, please feel free to join the session and discussion.
With thoughtful design, appropriate maintenance, and effective management, airlift pumps may allow us to transfer water through an aquaponics system in a more efficient way compared to that of water pumps. Understanding the disadvantages and learning how easy it is to construct an airlift pump can help many to reduce their energy expenses while avoiding the risk and maintenance resulted from having electrical pumps in the water.
