Thanks, Sorry not to post in your DWC-ish vid, I should have, but got
caught up in your others to look at some of the things you’re up to since
the DWC video had a poor angle. Well done, very tailored great working
systems. Diaphrams always rupture for me whenever I push cheap AP’s and
it’s always more efficient changing energy form only once. I would use an
Archimedes screw and then compare to yours. My “T” comment only an option
to best control air injection %, in the tube…but agree w/you.

Tip, I am sorry. I guess, I am not as Youtube clever as everyone else. But,
I went to an area that says browse channels, but I believe I was in the
wrong area. Please give me a little more information to get where I need to

Hi Tom. This is just a demonstration of water being pumped by air. I have
other videos that show a single small air pump with two outputs that
demonstrate the same air pump being used to pump the water ever higher
using gravity to return to the pond. The pumps themselves aerate the
nutrient solution just by the inherent mode of operation. Every bubble that
escapes out of the pump admits a water droplet or two that ride the
airstream up and out of the tube. Thank You for watching my videos>

Bit of a wierd system compared to Ebb/flow and DWC.

Part 4 To see many different ways to pump water using air look at this
video I made 2 years ago. I show many different air powered water pumps
that are simple to make and totally custom. youtube.com/watch?v=6atIX2_dL2E
Thank You for interacting with me I appreciate any interest You may have.

Very nice demo to show your skill of doing without a water pump. However,
I’m more convinced having a separate tiny drip pump would do a better job
of aeration per kWh (really Watt-h) as long as we don’t distracted enjoying
the demo. For anyone into the science of this, using an airstone at the
bottom will give a far better transfer of air to the tank, since the
bubbles are tiny and hang a while. If you have extra air this system works
fine, less efficiently, and you still need the airstone.

You have some nice videos and explain things really well. Thanks for the
heads up I enjoyed several of your videos. Keep it up.

I built one and i am 12 i used a 15 trash can, a 15 in pipe, aquarium air
pump, tubes, and some elbows and cross connectors

Tom, You are talking about DWC and the air stone is fine for static but
what I am doing is different. I have to answer in two posts because there
isn’t enough room for it all.. I use a single air pump to power multiple
grow containers, filters. I made a greenhouse. and dug a small pond into
the ground.as a living nutrient solution with fish living in there. The air
pumps aerate the water for the fish and at the very same time water is
forced up and out of the tube and into a bio filter.

@tkrimo Anyway I could get the link to those e-books as well?
November 9, 2013 at 8:16 pm
okay, but how would you grow a plant in that?
November 9, 2013 at 8:22 pm
yes I am aware of that thanks, my question was how this builder was going
to go about it though
November 9, 2013 at 9:00 pm
simple, you build the same system without clear material. 5 gallon black
buckets are the best. It’s crucial that no light is exposed to the roots.
Rockwool is comon for algae build up, all you have to do cover the the top
of the rockwool with any material that light cannot get through. I use
mylar myself but coconut mats are pretty good and easy to manipulate around
the stem. Algae cannot grow without light! hope that answers your question

small pump will use 1/10th the power and last 10X longer than your air pump
November 9, 2013 at 10:38 pm
good idea! thanks for sharing!
November 9, 2013 at 11:01 pm
This is one of the most ingenious ways of making this system that I have
seen in a long time. WELL DONE! and thanks for sharing. The only gripe I
have is the link on the last few seconds is too long to type and should
have been included in the Description.

great idea… it is same like aquarium under sand filter system. is it ?

Part 2 The outputs can be hooked in several ways. A drip manifold can be
added and power 8 drip lines. That means 8 plants from the first level. As
the water rises higher in the first stage the 2nd output leaves and can
irrigate a container or two on the way back to the reservoir / pond. Now
use the 2nd output on the same small Aquarium pump and put the pump head
into the first stage. The water will be cleaner as the particles settle to

This type of system should be very easy and cheap to power by solar……
and if you are not able to supply power why would you be looking at hydro

Thanks a lot for the movie. I also have the comprehensive step-by-step
training video lessons on the way to build your very own homemade Aquaponic
system. Its very easy that even your grandma can do it! Visit here to find

You get some extra punch from the splashing, for the quick pumping, but
consider for example one bubble 50 times the volume of 50 small ones. The
little ones are about 4X the area exposed and when the little bubbles get
to the surface much more slowly increasing time for exchange … the mini
pops &persisting bubbles at the surface give that an added punch to the
airstone. The jury is still out on powerheads vs. airstones so to be sure
we’d just need an oxygen ppm probe to best do this.

Do you by chance offer a written step by step tutorial of the Homemade
Hydroponics How To Pump Water From Air?
November 10, 2013 at 1:57 am
Thats not only incorrect the air pump driving a pump head has MUCH more
aeration and oxygen that the bottom line is The Plants Grow Faster and
Bigger. Try making one they rock!

Hi Bonita Yes I offer Free plans on how to build your own high performance
grow bucket that is powered by a small Aquarium air pump. You can make this
hybrid system for about $20 but You will learn how to make your own custom
systems from the Free PDF e-book. Go to my channel and click on the Free
plans in the header panel. Let me know if You have any problems. Thank You
for the interest in Air powered hydroponic gardening videos.

Part 3 That pumps the water ever higher and into yet another grow pot
filter to be repeated We have many more plants involved using this method
than a static only system. TOutputs from air powered water pumps can be
used in several different hydroponic growing techniques. Drip, Aweoponic,
NFT, & Ebb & flow. With DWC the roots have to be in the reservoir so you
are limited.The easiest way to pump water with air isn’t a T fitting, but a
single tubing with a hole in it. NO Moving Parts.
