Commercial Aquaponics

It’s time for a farming revolution. Shortages of water and energy. Urban food deserts. Pollution of soils and waterways. There’s a clear need for sustainable new sources of nutritious food. Aquaponics is the future. Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems is committed to the commercialization of systems that create the better water needed to grow healthy fish and plants.

We Support You in Design, Engineering and Installation

Large-Scale Aquaponics Systems

Systems Engineering

Our Approach to Finding Your Solutions

Start with a site visit to investigate:

  • Water supply and disposal
  • Electrical supply
  • Buildings
  • Humidity
  • Natural light
Then we create a technical analysis:
  • Size and scope
  • Locate fish tanks and plant beds
  • Determine water pre-treatment, re-use and waste treatment or disposal
Next we create a production plan and design the layout of piping, electrical and air delivery systems and the integrated fish and plant systems.

Urban Farms

Breakthrough Research Grows Fish and Vegetables for Local Consumers

Green Sky Growers in Winter Garden, Florida, produces tons of fresh vegetables and fish each year without pesticides:

  • Environmentally friendly growing practices include harvesting rainwater
  • All growing systems recycle 100 percent of nutrients and water
  • The majority of food produced is sold to the local community
We partner with Green Sky Growers on breakthrough research, agricultural techniques and product innovation. The state-of-the-art facility combines climate control technology with conventional and innovative growing techniques.

Aquaponics/
Hydroponics Systems

Mini Fish Farm™ Helps Novices Quickly Succeed

The Mini Fish Farm™ is so easy to set up and operate that a novice can successfully bring 100 pounds of tilapia to market size under standard conditions. With minor maintenance, its professional-grade components have a life expectancy exceeding 15 years. An optional aquaponics kit utilizes fish effluent as fertilizer. Eighteen lettuce, herb or other leafy plants are partially suspended in the Mini Fish Farm’s recirculated water.

Rainwater Collection Structures

Hitting a Home Run at Baseball Stadium

Pentair partnered with the Minnesota Twins to recycle rainwater at Target Field, saving the city of Minneapolis nearly two million gallons a year. In 2009, the Major League Baseball team’s goal was to make its new ballpark the first LEED-certified pro sports venue in North America. We helped develop a first-of-its-kind system that captures, conserves and reuses rainwater for irrigating the playing field and washing down the stadium seats. Click here to learn more.

01

Formerly Stockhouse No. 3 for Hamm’s Brewing Co. in St. Paul, Minnesota, Urban Organics redeveloped a portion of a 106-year-old building into an aquaponics farm for organic fish and greens production.

With Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems’ expertise and equipment backing the endeavor, the six-story urban building will eventually house 18 fish tanks holding 3,500 gallons apiece and generate more than 1 million pounds of produce per year. 

The first crop of greens hit the market in 2013, and Urban Organics has been thriving ever since.
