    Hello Andrew…. from Bob in sunny Florida …. I do a lot of responding on a lot of off grid sites…… basically I have my off grid , wild caught , natural fish farm, like free range fish, if they cant forage in the pond to feed them self’s, to bad. A lot of information is on the web about raising fish for money , and its true Tilapia fillates will sell for $10.00 to $15.00 a lb, but you don’t know anything about where they were raised, were the cross sexed, antibodies are needed in high density stocked tanks, and food is it fish chow 2 grades below dog food, go to this web page

    https://ag.arizona.edu/azaqua/extension/flyers/Pond_Cultcure_Tilapia.pdf N …..,

    A stocking rate of 8,000/acre is frequently used to achieve yields as
    high as 4.4 tons/acre. At this stocking rate the daily weight gain will
    range from 1.5 to 2.0 grams. Culture periods of 200 days or more are
    needed to produce large fish that weigh close to 500 grams.

    Now you do the math 4.4 tons per acre every 200 days at $3.00 a lb whole fish … = $26,400 US dollars…

    Well enough fish talk so Andrew where are you in your research…. do you have any property …. do you really want to go off grid or is it a dream? camp out for a month and get the feel of what is needed when the sun goes down, or your hungry because you went threw all your food in the first week, …..as a minimum 2 gal of drinking water a day that’s only 27 days from a 55gal blue drum that weights 458 lbs……jot down your questions …then google them first before you ask for help…..would be happy to work with you but my tutoring rates are $25.00/hr…..keep in touch… you have one free question credit……take care … bob …. bob32l75@aol.com Sunny Florida central east coast

    Reply from Bob….so you want to drink your processed “Gray water”…… if you live in the USA ….I don’t think you can do it……code or health will not pass it…..the chances for contamination entering your system ….airborne mist , leaks , cannot be eliminated ….there are ceramic , silver/ copper , and heat sterilization ……California has the strictest gray water regulation ….Google them….in the end if  you are set on drinking it …please have it tested……..my system will take it to .5mu run it into  a solar still , with a charcoal bed , the UV is in the sun light  plus some elevated temperature , store it in food grade fiberglass tanks , and have a small recirculator pump threw a silver exchange , then

    test it….good luck …. Bob ..  32175w@gmail.com .. Bunnell ,  Florida

    Read the report…..sound just a tad bias …. early planting in Florida is the secret to eliminate bugs ….. finished harvesting my tomatoes 6/24/2014 had 4 pickings with ZERO PESTICIDES also never watered them…. have them floating on rafts that wick up the water..in my one acre pond…..main reason so the deer that come threw every day and other animals would not disturb them ……take care……bob
