Small scale home aquaponics – Filtration Technology for Fish and plant production systems
Aquaponics merges aquaculture, the raising of aquatic animals, with hydroponics, growing plants in water.
Small scale home aquaponics systems can be located in urban areas or your backyard and provide all of the benefits of growing your own food.
Combined with our innovative filters and filtration systems, your small scale or home aquaponics environment will be able to grow healthy, nutrient-rich crops and fish in a small footprint, using minimal water.
Filters for any size system
AST filters provide predictable and safe water quality for your fish crop, while capturing and transforming the soluble and solid fish waste into biologically available nutrients for your plants.
Save Time, Water, & Energy
AST bead filter technology, often used in high density aquaculture, has been adapted specifically for smaller scale aquaponics environments and home use.
These filters backwash themselves!
Simplify your maintenance! Imagine never manually cleaning your filters again! Plus the automated backwash minimizes water loss so your whole system can process as efficiently and sustainably as possible.
The Pure Aquatics team of aquaponics filtration experts is ready to help you plan and build your ideal system today.
Decoupled System Design
Pure Aquatics recommends a decoupled system design. Decoupling the system means that the fish and the plants are not in a continual loop.
Instead, nutrients are captured and concentrated for use in fertilising your plants. Decoupled aquaponics systems take advantage of these benefits:
- Highest efficiency configuration
- Lowest water use
- Less crop and animal risk
- Compact design in a small footprint
- Less plumbing
- Predictable, consistent operation
What does that all mean? Less worry, less plumbing, faster setup, and more time farming!
