Hi and glad to have you here. I've been wanting to get into aquaponics. Worried about power loss. What are your thoughts on battery back up?

Hi Jeff. Having a backup plan is critical, whether that be with a battery or a generator if you have a larger system. We sell a product we call AquaBackup just for this purpose that you can check out here - http://theaquaponicsource.com/product-category/build-your-system/backup-and-safety/. I also recommend always having a second, backup pump available. Those things seem to always go out in the middle of the night or on a weekend!
