Howdy.

Sorry for not updating anything for a while. We were planning on moving out to the farm. In fact, we had power run to the property for that specific reason, when we were last there. But, I found a deal in town TOO good to pass up, while still keeping us in town AND giving us a bit of land to run our first aquaponics system on. Photos of the new place added.

(Image Immediately Below) The property entrance faces west, with the house and apartments facing the vacant lot. This is a southerly view. It should be fine for solar powering the water and air pumps. Mains and solar will be used to guarantee 100% run time for the pumps.

(Image Immediately Below) The area off to the right, with the metal across the front, is where the AP system will be set up. Naturally, being in the city, I will have to run security cameras and infrared flood lamps for night images. Don’t want to put money into this, just to see it vandalized or stolen by some low life creatons.

The roof over the drive (right side of the house, directly behind the gate), will provide 99 square meters of collection area, which should be ample water supply for the system, even throughout dry season. If not, I will just have to cross that bridge when I come to it.

We should be in the new location by month’s end (May 31st), at the latest.
