please bear with me as this is my first ever instructible. in this instructible i will show you how to make a 20 min aquaponics setup using only recycled materials. the first step is to gather your materials keeping in mind that even though the fish do not live in this part of the system that they are exposed to it constantly, so it is always a good idea to use "food-grade" plastics, "i know drywall mud is not food but its all i had!!"
Step 1: step one: mark and drill your holes
in this step you simply mark where your siphon needs to be in the bucket and drill out the hole. i used a 7/8" drill bit but that depends on the size of your bottle. also note that i said mark then drill as shown from the patch on the bottom of the bucket this step is important lol.
the location of the hole doesnt really matter for function but as this is an addon for my current system i need the hole in a certain spot.
