What is the aquaponic machine(APM)?
Aquaponics is changing the way we think about gardening, water conservation the use of land and more importantly how we teach our children food production – all real factors when it comes to the future of food security. For this reason, The Aquaponic machine has developed an innovative aquaponics system that allows you to grow a predictable harvest of your favorite fruits, vegetables and fish in one very small footprint.
We took all we learnt on our commercial farm and packaged it in an dependable electrical upgrade for soil gardening. The technology was originally designed for astronauts to grow food in space. No longer does growing plants have to be a time and space consuming thing.
Aquaponics does two things, 1) replaces the uncertainty of gardening with science, sensors and water pumps and 2) allows you to properly schedule your time around the garden. Up to 80% of the manual labor performed in gardening is non-harvest related (read hard work), for example, watering, topdressing, mulching and fertilizing, aquaponics replaces that by using fishy nutrients already dissolved in water to directly inject to the plant roots.
How does aquaponics work?
Aquaponics works because if follows principles found in nature. Frequently asked aquaponic questions On one side you have a container of fish that fills the water with nutrients as they are fed and on the other side is a container with plants that clean the water by using the nutrients finally you have a pump circulating the water between the two containers as moving water brings life and stagnant water brings death.
Is Aquaponics organic?
Short answer is yes. Any good independent aquaponic system should let you grow food without the need for store bought chemicals. This is important because clean food is important however your food is as clean as the person growing it, that means the only way to be sure is to grow it yourself.
What makes the aquaponic machine your best choice?
We don’t know what the future of aquaponics will bring but our designs are tested, reliable and cost effective making it is almost impossible for you to put together a quality aquaponic machine your self for less than we can sell you however cost is not the major benefit, our supporting services and dedication is what makes us your bulletproof choice when doing anything aquaponic.
What tools do I need for a DIY system?
This is a trick question, all of the tools and equipment you will need to build an aquaponic system can be found at the local hardware store, this includes a power drill, a power saw, a circle saw you will also need a hammer, nails, screws and screwdriver, unfortunately if you have to buy tools then this is not a job for you, sorry. Please note no tools are needed for assembling the Aquaponic machine
Why should you get started today?
In the past food production was family business, this eventually got replaced by a global system with the supermarket at the front. Aquaponics is powerful because it mixes technology and biological processes in a way that a beginner can not only quickly understand but master. With aquaponics you dont need the support network and years of chores our fore parents endured in order to learn food production instead you only need a text book and 3 shore courses. We have a personal responsibility to help heal this world, growing our own food and teaching others is the most proactive way to make a difference.
