DIY Project: SolaRoof Kelowna 2020, Update 2

The possibility of converting the existing 50 gallon barrels to soap water tanks for the SolaRoof system. It turns out that there are at least 3 full barrels there, buried half way in the ground, that we can use. There is also a half barrel place on the ground that we can also use.

Two sandponics systems are also shown in the video with fish and vegetables, all alive and grow happily. Operation is automatic with one water pump, one air pump and a timer for each system. I just need to add water each month to supplement the loss of water through evaporation. Earlier video about these two iAVS sandponics can be seen from here:

You will see me picking some fresh leaves from a plant (Chrysanthemum) and eat right away, very juicy and healthy.

After watching the video, if you have comments or advise concerning things that you can donate for this project, like larger structural frames for the outer layer to be added, shallow trays along the sides to receive the soap liquid, etc. that would very much appreciated.

If you would like to support this project directly, here is the link dedicated for this:

Thank you!
