  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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>

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

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

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. @tkrimo Anyway I could get the link to those e-books as well?

  11. okay, but how would you grow a plant in that?

    November 9, 2013 at 8:22 pm

  12. yes I am aware of that thanks, my question was how this builder was going
    to go about it though

  13. 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

  14. small pump will use 1/10th the power and last 10X longer than your air pump

    November 9, 2013 at 10:38 pm

  15. good idea! thanks for sharing!

  16. 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.

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

  18. 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
    the bottom.

  19. 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
    systems anyway…

  20. 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

  21. 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.

  22. 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

  23. 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!

  24. 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.

  25. 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.
