Product Details

This simple, stylish aquaponics system integrates two type of beds into one structure.  The lower level is filled with water, making a combined sump and raft bed, and the top section is a media bed.  A great combination of growing methods in one neat, attractive structure.

With a footprint of about 1.5 m x 2.5 m (about 5' x 8') (excluding fish tank), this is a neat little system for small spaces.

Each bed is about 1 m x 1 m (3.3' x 3.3'), making a handy little garden in which you can grow a wide variety of crops.
The pump sits in the sump, and the plumbing runs three separate loops of water
  • Sump to fish tank and back to sump
  • Sump to media bed and back to sump
  • Water bypass line, that lets you run excess water pressure directly back into the sump
Our Pine Kit Flat Pack contains the materials you need to construct one of these wooden bed/sump systems for yourself - timber, liner, screws, nails, autosiphon, water pump, air pump, plumbing, and detailed instructions.

The Flat Pack does NOT include a fish tank.  You will need to provide this yourself.  One about 250-1000 L (about 66-260 US Gal) is ideal.  The plumbing and instructions are suitable for a variety of tanks; in our pictures (and in the instructions), we have used a 1000 L (260 G) IBC/tote-tank as the fish tank.  These are usually fairly easy and cheap to get second-hand.  Just make sure they haven't had any nasty chemicals in them.

The Flat Pack also does NOT include the grow media.  You will need to provide this, about 300 L (~1/3 cu-m) (~11 cu-ft).

Construction of this kit requires no special building experience.  If you can use a power drill and a hammer, you're well on your way!

Start growing some of your own food at home, with this compact aquaponics system.  Fresh, home-grown organic crops right from your own backyard.  Can't get much better than that!


MADE TO ORDER. Expected time from order to delivery will be up to 21 days.
NOTE - the pictures show two Pine Kits side by side. The Flat Pack provides materials for ONLY ONE kit.
