Bits Out the Back Store.

Welcome to The Bits Out The Back Store..
We have decided to stock a few handy items that folks asked about after seeing them on our YouTube clips or blogs.   Not trying to make a million $$ here, just trying to make it easier
for the Backyard Farmer to source some useful items at a reasonable price.

Root Pouches

Growing your favourite plants in fabric Root Pouches is not only a great way to nurture their roots but is also a fantastic way to help keep plastic bottles out of landfill. Root Pouches are also great for use in Aquaponics and Hydroponics.

"Root Pouch’s award-winning technology takes discarded plastic bottles that would otherwise clog our landfills and oceans, and turns them into plant pots, vertical garden pouches and erosion control sacks. Resilient and lightweight, our two types of fabric are designed to either be non degradable or to break down over time to let plants grow big and strong. The lifespan of our fabric is up to you, depending on the fabric you choose."

"All of our fabrics are BPA free and resistant to UV light."

Hope to have more information on growing with Root Pouches in the aquaponics and also as air pruning grow pouches in the near future. For now you can find a bit of extra information in the   Root Pouches, For Soil and Aquaponic growing Page.

25mm Venturi
Venturis are an efficient way to deliver air to your fish tank. They also do a great job of delivering O2 to and agitating the bio media in moving bed bio-filters.
While these may be more expensive than some units for sale online, I have found them to be far superior in doing the job after testing some the venturis made for liquid "injection".

25mm/1" Venturi

$35.00 + postage and handling

No discount offered on Venturi sales sorry 

Connecting these venturis is easy by using small sections of hose and hose clamps. It's a good idea to use 316 stainless clamps where they will be used in water to prevent corrosion.

Have also played around with a few different DIY home made venturis and found them effective if you're interested in having a crack at one of them first.
