Glenn just discovered this new way of making the air lift pump works with just his secret weapon.

I am very interrested in your techniques what is a “turbo booster”?
The video is missing for this link.

I will go and find our video of the turbo blaster and make sure it is posted here. Will let you know?

Check out this video on you tube. https://youtu.be/CY9PhK7OTjQ
This will explain it like Glenn’s explanation.

This answer is from Glenn regarding the turbo blaster.

Okay, I will get on that.

Question? Do you have a copy of my Patent Book that has the Turbo Blaster in it?

That is where pumped water is sent thru a pipe and compressed air is added?

The short version, in words is, pump the water to the desired height, plus two feet, and release the water into a larger pipe.

So if I am pumping water, regardless if it is pumped by mechanical pump, airlift or a combination,(turbo blaster), we are pumping water up the interior pipe, say a 1.25 inch pipe that is mounted or installed inside a 4 inch pipe. The water comes out the one inch pipe, falls down and fills the four inch pipe. at the bottom, you have a four inch tee fitting that was plumbed with a two inch to 1/25 reducer at the bottom, and a side fitting of 2 inch for removing the stored water in the 4 inch vertical pipe (normally reduced down to a hose male fitting to accept a garden hose.

Now the pump sends the water up the 1.25 inch pipe to say 12 feet and the four inch pipe is 14 to 15 feet tall, the water fills the 4 inch pipe, and you remove the water out the garden hose on demand.

For every foot of height in the stored water, you achieve 1/2 psi. So at 12 foot of storage, you have 6 psi. You can wash the car or take a great shower with that stored water.

It gets interesting when you see the four inch pipe, laying on the ground, hurricane or storm passes, they come out, pull on a pulley mounted in a tree, and haul the empty (pipe in a pipe – tankless tower up into a tree, and then turn on the pump, send water up into the center pipe, and fill the four inch pipe, they then have gravity induced water pressure that can supply the entire farm water, up to 12 foot high (or whatever height they hauled the contraption up to.

I normally mount the four inch pipe to a building or light pole, or 4 by four. Never lost one to a storm.

I like to fill with a airlift pump, because as the water fills up, and clears the 12 foot high center pipe, and the water fills ABOVE the 12 foot exit, it can only fill about another two feet and stops filling! It automatically stops because the 24 inches of water ABOVE the 12 foot exit, causes increase resistance to the air water mixture.

That way my four inch pipe never overfills! And when I use water, automatically starts filling again.

When using a mechanical pump, we usually install a “overflow pipe” that routes the overflow water back to the fish tank.

We are doing the tankless tower in installation, where building a storage tank is just not possible, lack of funding, permit required, landlord or liability issues.

The tankless tower is filled with fish water directly from he fish tank or better after a swirl filter and radial filter have remove MOST of the solids.

That way we have less solids in the garden hose.

It is called “detached aquaponics” . They fill the fish tank with clean well water at night, then run the pump all night to filter the water thru the bio-filter that turns the ammonia to nitrogen, and then pump the water up in the tankless tower in the morning, and then water the veggie (in the ground conventional) garden with the enhanced “fish water”. No more hauling buckets of water around the garden, the pressured fish water can travel hundreds of feet and garden hoses are then uses.

Thus more fish are kept in a fish tank than normal, because they will be doing up to a 50 percent water change. The garden that gets enhanced fish water will far exceed a garden simply water with well water.

Detached Aquaponics (DA) is the future for many “in the ground” farmers who are starting aquaponic systems. It greatly expands the value of the fish water.

Our American Thanksgiving story is the American Indians teaching the pilgrims to put a dead fish under each corn plant. Now we just water with fish water and then eat the fish for dinner!

I will get to work on the drawings for you this morning.

Franklin says:

Filtering the water that goes to the earth grown crops may be unnecessary. The only thing I can think that would be a problem with fish waste in the hose would be clogging or hydrogen sulfide production in the anaerobic environment. One answer to both would be to run air through the hose when not in use. I guess if you are using emitters of some kind, clogging would be more of an issue.

Franklin says:

This sounds great. There may be no real need for passing the fishwater through a biological filter. Most plants show a preference for ammonium and ammonia that are present in raw fish water. The end product of biological filters is nitrate that is not as favored by plants. One notable exception is water hyacinth that thrives on nitrate. Some fish hatcheries use continuous flow through systems rather than the traditional “batch” method of periodic water changes. Some discus farmers do 200% water changes per day. It may be more efficient to simply pass water through the fish tanks so that a predetermined % is collected for irrigation. The continuous flow method avoids the peaks and valleys of nitrate in the water that stress fish. Mechanical removal of solids may be all the filtration needed.
