The kind of aquaponic system used (Nutrient Film Technique, Media beds, Deep Water culture or other)
Customized or standardized grow bed area (“Customizable” or “X x X m”)
Types of fish that the system is designed for (fish species/types)
Maximum number of fish (“X fish” or “Customizable”)
Size of the aquaponic tank (“X x X x X m or m3)
The types of plants that the system is designed for (plant groups or specific crops)
The energy source of the water pump or manual irrigation (power source type or manual)
Some hydroponics systems include water filters, some require the user to periodically drain and refill the water. Is there a filtration system included? (Yes/No)
Does the the system come with an aerator which pumps oxygen into the tank? (Yes/No)
Water that is periodically replenished in the fish tank (Volume or depth per unit of time)
Type of digital monitoring systems that may or may not connect to a smartphone app that monitor such things as nutrient levels, water temperature, etc. (Automated or Manual)
The GrowPod is a self-contained aquapoincs system with vertical grow beds over a fish tank. The InspireFarm is a greenhouse with several grow beds and fish tanks. In both systems, the grow beds are filled with gravel and seeds are planted directly into the gravel. The grow beds are placed on top of the fish tank. A pumping machine and pipes are included to pump water from the fish tank to the plants, and the water from the plants then drains back into the fish tank.
Technical support is provided by the manufacturer.
