Aquaponics is the combination of two types of farming, aquaculture and hydroponics:
In aquaponics the fish feces become the dissolved nutrients for the plants while the plants, or the grow
beds, act as a filter for the water that the fish live in. Aquaponics systems vary greatly in size and design.
Rubberizeit!™ Dura-Rubber liquid rubber can be used for so many purposes that a gardener is only limited by his or her imagination. For example, Rubberizeit!™ Dura-Rubber make building custom hydroponic or aquaponic systems a snap.
Materials that were once impossible to use in hydroponic systems (wood, metal, etc.) can now be given a coat of Rubberizeit!™Dura-Rubber liquid rubber and they become a safe harbor for plants and/or fish. This makes designing and building custom hydroponic systems much easier given the grower is no longer limited by the building materials. Custom hydroponic systems can now be built out of anything, not just five gallon buckets and PVC piping (but if you are using PVC piping it can also be coated with Rubberizeit!™ Dura-Rubber to protect it from UV light).
Many soil gardeners and practically every hydroponic gardener use some sort of water reservoir. Thin plastic totes that were once a disaster waiting to happen can be reinforced with a coating of Rubberizeit!™ Dura-Rubber to withstand holding large volumes of water.
Aquaponic systems that are free of toxic materials produce fresh organic fish and vegetables that are also free of toxins. Be sure that all of the materials chosen for an aquaponics system are non-toxic or that the portion of the material, which comes in contact with the water in the system, is coated with RubberizeIt!™ Coatings.
Yes, with Rubberizeit!™ Solutions, that rusty old galvanized feed or water trough can become a fish tank or grow bed. Now any vessel or container can become a fish tank or grow bed with Rubberizeit!™ products.
Perfect for your full-custom aquaponics set-up, Rubberizeit!™ Rubber Coatings eliminates folds and wasted excess material. When comparing the cost per square foot of Rubberizeit!™ Rubber Coatings with other commercially available pond liners the material lost in the folds must be considered.
