After 3 years in the Industry and business I saw there is a huge need for a smaller modular Aquaponic system.
I worked on the idea or some time as there is no such purpose-based professional system on the market.
It started with feedback from so many people who visited my facilities. Everyone does not want to be a
commercial farmer like me, but want to makes use of the brilliant technique of producing food.
In collaboration with my father and a manufacturer, I developed a unique small-scale product that I call the “LAPPIES” system.
It’s a modular system and 100% “PLUG AND PLAY” It only takes an hour to assemble and get it operational.
It consists of a 1500 liter dam that can house up tot 30 kg of fish, so plus minus 90 big fish of 300g. And 3
x containers for aggregate aquaponic grow beds, which work on the “flood and drain” principle.
It is a closed RAS system and can easily be expanded. The grow beds for the aquaponic are loose and
can be placed over the dam, or separately aside just as your space allows.
The 3 x 2meter brow beds give you an area of 4.2m and is enough to accommodate at least 150 plants.
Since the set is modular, you can mix and match to suit your needs. The units can also be bought separately,
but remember that there is a direct proportion between the amount of fish and the amount of plants,
as it will determine the concentration of nutrients as well as the filtration rate.
Everything is included when you buy the “KIT”, from pump to first fish and seedlings.
The pond and frame are of high quality 4- 5mm plastic, and is UV resistant and meets food standards.
The plastic is guaranteed for 10 years.
1 x 1500 Litre Fish pond/dam
3 x 2m Grow beds
1 x 80watt Pump, all piping and syphons
**Note: Fish and seedling only to be supplied in the Gauteng area where we do the installation.**
