Video: Testing your Water

Posted by Scott Moore on Jul 7, 2017 2:30:00 PM

Join Conor Quinlan, Stuppy's Aquaponics Engineer, as he demonstrates how to use the API Water testing kit we include with every Aqueduct unit.

This easy to use kit is fantastic for monitoring the quality of your water and gathering data for use in future experiments and classroom activities.

Testing your water frequently can help identify problems early enough that you can correct them, potentially saving you from disaster events like a fish kill. We recommend testing the Aqueduct at least 3 times a week.

As always, we are happy to answer questions! Comment below, or contact our Aquaponics team by email!

Video: Dealing with floating media

Posted by Scott Moore on Jun 30, 2017 2:30:00 PM

We're back today with more awesome video content.  Here, our systems engineer Conor Quinlan is offering some helpful tips for dealing with a problem common to all Aquaponics systems, Floating media. 

Often, when you first fill a system with water, the expanded clay will float a few inches off the water. While common, this is an issue that is easily solved. You can watch the video to see how we handle it in our Aqueduct system.

Video: Assembling the Aqueduct

Posted by Scott Moore on Jun 16, 2017 2:30:00 PM

We hope you enjoyed last week's video providing a brief introduction to the Aqueduct!  This week we are pleased to be releasing additional video content. Our team installed a system for Colonial Gardens in Blue Springs, MO recently, and we were able to capture the event on film. 

This is a long video, but highlights just how easy these systems are to set-up. Just Conor and myself were able to complete the job over the span of two short days! While we are somewhat experienced in setting these up, most people should have no issues putting an Aqueduct together in just a short time. Enjoy!
