Shipping

Please check the shipping address listed in your paypal transaction as you check out! If that address is wrong contact me ASAP since I pack and ship orders quickly and I do it based on the address paypal gives me. I prefer you have a confirmed paypal address since unconfirmed addresses mean I need to confirm the shipping address with you (this takes time and can delay shipping.) If you get an e-mail from me with a subject like Re: Payment received from your e-mail@your e-mail.com it is me trying to confirm something about your order before I can ship, please open it and respond if you want your order shipped asap.

I do not earn money on the shipping. The paypal calculator is not very flexible so if it over charges you for shipping, I will refund the difference. There is a place on paypal where you can add instructions about shipping (for instance if the shipping address is a business address according to UPS/Fed Ex it might allow me to save you money on shipping for certain products if I know about it, otherwise I have to assume residential shipping. If you add your phone number there I can use your phone number if I ship via Fed Ex for certain products and they can call you if there is an issue with delivery.)

If Paypal doesn't charge you for shipping, it is probably because you are in another country or someplace I don't normally ship to, I will be contacting you about it since I will need to find out the shipping costs to your location and send you an invoice for the shipping or refund your order if I can not ship to you or if you don't want to pay the shipping. I normally Sell in the USA but have occasionally shipped packages internationally.

Plants and Fish I only sell in Florida at this time and I am not set up to ship fish yet.

Return and Refund Policy

I try very hard to quickly answer questions about products before the sale. If you are uncertain about a product please ask, I want to make sure that what you buy is what you need and what will actually work for you.

If you buy a product and change your mind about it later and want to return it, I will have to charge a re-stocking fee and I can only accept returns on unused items. I can only make refunds for 60 days after the purchase through paypal. I do not refund the shipping or pay return shipping unless the reason for the return is on my end.

Please contact me for instructions before returning anything. If I'm not expecting something to come back, I won't know what to do with it if it actually makes it to me. Some packages are shipped direct from the manufacturer and simply mailing something back to them won't get you a refund.

If there is a problem with a product, please contact me so we can work something out. Some items are covered by warranty.

Aquaponics Indexing valves! Sequencing Valves!

Aquaponics Indexing Valves or Sequencing valves provide a means to flood grow beds in sequence thus reducing the size of fish tank or sump tank needed to support a given amount of grow beds. Indexing valves or Sequencing valves are mechanical and only require the flow to them to stop and start to cause them to index forward. Aquaponics Indexing Valves are a great way to expand the amount of grow bed without needing to buy a bigger fish tank.

The valves come in three different sizes. 1″, 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″
They also come in a few different bodies. 4 outlets, 6 outlets, 8 outlets (only in 1″ though)
There are cams that can be installed in the valves to allow them to operate different numbers of outlets.
For example the 4 outlet body can be cammed to run 2, 3 or 4 outlets and one would simply cap off the unused outlets if any.

Indexing valves do require a certain amount of pressure and flow to operate properly. Please contact me for assistance in pump sizing for your specific situation.

Important note, DO NOT use siphons in conjunction with an indexing valve unless your tank is big enough to handle all beds getting stuck flooded (and staying that way) at once. If there is any malfunction that keeps the siphon from kicking in the bed remains flooded even when the indexing valve moves on to the next bed you could have a problem. If you are using an indexing valve to be able to have a smaller sump or fish tank, you should not use siphons with it. If anything reduces the pump flow and the indexing valve doesn’t fully engage, flow will go to all zones and may not be enough to trigger siphons and all beds may become flooded at once and stay that way. With stand pipes the beds will drain but in most siphon set ups the beds could all sit full and the sump be too empty for the system to operate and pumps could burn up. I DO NOT recommend using an indexing valve if you are going to use siphons. If you want to use an indexing valve I DO NOT recommend using siphons. I am not responsible if your siphons are not balanced perfectly to ensure bed drainage when the indexing valve moves on to the next bed. I also can not guarantee that a clog or some other circumstance won’t slow your pump flow so it can’t engage the indexing valve properly. Please set the system up so that if some minor failure happens, it won’t cause a major system desaster.
