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.

Zipgrow Tower Stands

If you are ordering 4 zipgrow towers for your aquaponic or hydroponic system but don’t have an easy way to hang them, I’ve got a stand for you. It’s 7′ 2″ tall and 56″ wide (and 27″ deep but the stock tank will be deeper) and designed to hang the towers over a 50 gallon rubbermaid stock tank which you can get locally from tractor supply. The stand is built to fit snugly around the base of the stock tank so that once there is water in it, the base will be heavy enough to keep a gust of wind from knocking the stand full of towers over.

Putting the Aquaponic/hydroponic system tower stand together will only require a wrench to tighten the clamps. If using a ratchet with a socket, it will help if the socket is deeper and I’ve been using a 13 mm socket for tightening these bolts on the clamps. If you are short like I am, a small step stool will be a must for assembly and maintenance of the flows to the towers. Video of me putting together the stand coming soon. (Didn’t take long as the unedited video was only about 11 minutes long so assembly is pretty easy.)

I’ll start the pricing at $78.99 and shipping in the continental US looks like it will be around $40.





Here is that video I promised. I did chop bits out to compress it for time a bit but as you will see it is still very simple.

As I have time I may even be able to put together a plumbing kit to make this a Zipgrow tower add on where the 50 gallon stock tank would be the sump and a pump in the stock tank to feed the towers would branch off to feed the fish tank or other grow beds. Such an add on would be easy to combine with an existing Aquaponic system or Hydroponic System.
Please comment or contact me if you are interested or have special requests for how you would like to see such things built.

These Are likely to require a few days lead time at least for the first couple since I will probably be building and packaging them on an order by order basis until I see enough demand to make up several to have ready to ship.

Parts list
6 longer pipes
4 short pipes
2 Line Rail Clamps with 2 nuts and bolts each
8 End Rail Clamps with 1 nut and bolt each
4 hanger hooks

This particular design is specially for the Zipgrow towers with a brace across the frame at a good height to lean the towers against to keep them from swinging in the breeze or leaning forward as the plants grow. If you have a different type of towers, I can design a stand for those too, just ask.
