The other day some one asked for more info about my water bottle Aquaponic tower flow spreaders. Well they don’t really photograph very well and are sort of difficult to describe but this video might help.
I was having trouble with the inflow to my Aquaponic towers either clogging, or flowing too much water into the top or slimming up the media at the top of the tower and causing splashing or over flowing. Well I noticed that one of the towers where I had drilled the hole rather off center in the cap and I had a long splash guard bottle on it, the water would actually spray against the bottle and trickle down into the tower nicely and that tower had far fewer problems with the cap clogging or splash issues. So I finally made the other front porch towers similar. I drilled a new pvc cap so it would spray to the side against the inside of the bottle and trickle down.
I think I’ve been running this way for several weeks and only had one clog to clean out. The splash issues have gone away in those Aquaponic towers too. I think this works very well.
