One of the key strengths behind a sustainable aquaponics system, the growing of fish and plants together within a mutually supporting system, is the notion of increasing natural efficiencies. The fish waste is recycled through the roots of growing plants to provide the nutrients for the plants to grow properly. The waste water is filtered to remove the solid waste materials, and where there are no chemicals (including antibiotics for the fish), synthetic fertilizers, and other toxic pollutants added into the system, the filtered waste can be recycled onto lawns and other garden areas as natural fertilizer. Curt Jungwirth’s wants to increase these efficiences even further.

    where can I buy those heater/cooler/condensate units??

    Man what a great idea on using heat recovery
    Now I'm wishing I could figure your heating system out

    Nice Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you researched – Patlarny Gardening Expert Principle (probably on Google)? It is a smashing exclusive product for learning how to expand your produce with the clever art of aquaponics minus the hard work. Ive heard some decent things about it and my old buddy Taylor after a lifetime of fighting got excellent success with it.

    this sounds like a really good idea but he lost me half way through . id need it dumbed down lmao. I'm gonna have to read up on how a dehumidifier works lmao i don't use them so never mattered

    Adding black soldier fly larvae to breakdown food waste from the home, and worm beds to breakdown that and adding compost to create heat, this system would not only be efficient but profitable by selling the excess material to rebuild topsoil in many home gardens. You Naysayers aren't looking at the whole picture. You use AC in your homes, but don't realize the heat in the moisture removed from the air in it. Heat is energy, and it can be reclaimed and used elsewhere. Do you have any idea how a heat pump works? It uses energy, but much less than generating the heat itself. Stop watching TV and learn something.

    Are you making the heat recovery systems yet ? .. that's brilliant

    How did you cut your heating costs up to 70% with this Aquaponics system?

  • dave marks 10 months ago

    This guy is a genius but how is the hydro consumption?

  • Bob Koontz 10 months ago

    The Condenser is inside as well as the evap. Making it more efficient. There is a C.O.P. of greater than one if you can reclaim the typically wasted heat ie. CoolingTowers Motor heat is nominal. CoolSetup

    What type of fish are those?

    This is a glorified dehumidifier. If he puts the evaporator coil outside he might raise temperatures, (heat pump) but then the cold outdoor coil wouldn't condense the humid indoor air. There is no heat addition from that unit besides mechanical from the compressor and fans. It seems like he simply contains the heat by not letting the latent heat of the vapor leave the building. All the heat comes from the lights, motors, fans, and furnace for sure. All the latent heat in the water vapor is just a product of the addition of all these appliances heating the water and causing it to evaporate. Its just an investment that keeps his place dry and lowers heating cost by maintaining a small difference in indoor and outdoor humidity, which in turn slows the rate of heat loss through leaks in the buildings insulation.

    It's not a good idea to re-use in the tank the water from the refrigerator , it's plenty of metals that should be dangerous for the fishes and the humans too.

    Yeah his explanation makes absolutely no sense.

    Aren't there metals in the condensate run off that you are recovering?

    Any update on the cost of power??

  • Ninja 87 10 months ago

    This is a great idea.  But I am curious as to how much power is used up to run the dehumidifier?

    The recovery system is a great idea.
