I was talking to a good friend recently and he was very interested in something called Hydroponics. This is the process of using water to feed plants without placing them in the ground. After speaking with him I have been interested in this and I was thinking of ways to make the system out of PVC pipe and the use of an electricity free pump to supply the water.
Here is a little 3D picture that I was playing with for a design concept. Let me know what you think. I dont know anything about hydroponics other than its cool. I cant wait to get started with this but it might be a little while.
I am thinking about using a ram pump or some other type of pump to get the water to the tank. I am just brain storming at the moment and things might and will change in the future.
