Aquaponics: Algae problems solved with E-ACTI'WATER B+
High-quality water for fish and plants:
Aquaponics is the fusion of aquaculture and hydroponics. Aquaculture involves the farming of fish and plants in aquatic environments, while hydroponics is the cultivation of plants using a nutrient-rich solution on a substrate. Aquaponics, therefore, combines both practices to create an ecosystem where plants are irrigated with water from fish farming. The water containing fish waste serves as fertilizer for the plants. This method of cultivation aims to be environmentally friendly by eliminating the use of chemical products in the production process.
At "La Ferme Aquaponique de l'Abbaye" in Chaumousey, our client faced specific challenges related to water quality in their aquaponics system.
The water required the use of UV lamps for purification to eliminate potential viruses, bacteria, and other microbes.
Additionally, it needed frequent changes due to pollutants such as ammonia from fish waste.
This polluted water attracted harmful insects, negatively impacting the crops. The water became turbid, leading to algae proliferation in the basins, hindering plant growth.
To address these inherent challenges, we proposed the installation of our E-ACTI'WATER B+ system before filtration for each tank. This ecological and economical solution provided significant benefits:
- Our client no longer requires UV lamps for water purification.
- Oxygenation of the water is reduced.
- Bacterial bubblers are reduced by 90%.
- The water becomes activated, clear, and softer.
- Undesirable odors in the water are eliminated.
- Algae in the water disappear.
- Plants are no longer attacked by insects.
- Crops become abundant and of superior quality.
- There is a reduction in algae growth on the sides of the cultivation tanks.
- Fish thrive in high-quality water, promoting their overall health.
- Algae growth on the sides of fish basins is reduced.
Additional economic benefits of E-ACTI'WATER B+:
- Improved water flow rate.
- Considerable reduction in electricity consumption.
- Less clogging of filters.
- Prevention of scale build-up in pipelines.
- Substantial reduction in maintenance time.
- Increased production efficiency.
E-ACTI'WATER B+ provides an all-encompassing solution for aquaponics, optimizing water quality and overall system performance.
Experience the advantages of ecological cultivation, reduced pollutants, and improved yields.
