Stock Tank Aquaponics, Grow Bed Construction

Pond

Stock Tank Aquaponics grow bed.

This bed is 6’x3′ by ~ 10″ tall. It is constructed with 3- 4×4’s 1 sheet of plywood & 8 – 2×4’s. I go through the process of building the base, walls & show each step along the way.

At the end I finished with putting a drain hole in one end of the bed which will have the bell siphon.

This build took about 2 hours, getting interrupted of course, next step is to put in the pond liner, cut out the spot for the drain & attach all of the fittings.
