How the 5in1 Calculator Can Work For You
See how it helped one of our members...
Recently I decided to build a small 1000 sqft greenhouse on my property, after months of research I was still not sure on what I needed to get the design right for my system. I checked out many websites and watched plenty of youtube videos but I still didn't feel like I could put the pieces together. I learned a lot through my own research but I didn't feel confident with what I had. 

When I used the the 5in1 design calculator I was excited to see that it calculated all the numbers I needed but also many that I had no idea I needed. I feel I have what I need for my aquaponics project to become a reality. - Greg Daniels

The numbers I had... 

  •  Size of the greenhouse
  •  Starting size of the grow beds
  • That's it...
The numbers I knew I needed but didn't know how to calculate...
  •  How many fish will I need?
  •  How much water do I need?
  •  What size fish tanks should I have?
  •  How much feed will I need?
  •  What is the correct pump size?
The numbers I didn't even know I needed to build my system...
  • Flow and recirculation rates
  •  Grow bed to tank volume ratio
  •  Biologic Surface Area (BSA) for media
  •  Stocking density actual vs. theoretical
  •   Specific Surface Area (SFA) grow bed

Once I entered the input numbers I got all the parameters that I knew I needed and the one once I didn't. 

Before I got the 5in1 calculator I inquired about aquaponics consulting to help me with the design but for someone with a small project and a small budget the costs were too much to bare. This calculator has given me much the same information for the fraction of the cost!

Plus if you get stuck the Urbanspace team which would be more than happy to assist you with the calculator and even other design questions.
Questions the 5in1 Calculator will Answer
  • How much water is needed for the fish?
  •  What should be the size of the fish tanks?
  •  How many fish should I have?
  •   What size of fish should I have?
  •  What should be the feed per day?
  •  What size pumps should I use?
Backyard and Commercial Design Calculator
  • How do I know how much grow area can I have as my fish numbers change?
  •  How do I know how much to feed my fish as they grow?
  •   What if I have custom size rafts, how do I know how many can my system support?
  •  If I change how much I feed my fish, how can I know what my system can support?
Feed and Grow Area Calculator
  •  I have curved or gable roof greenhouse how much heat will I need in the winter? both in Btu/hr and kWh
  •  What will I pay for heating if I am using Natural Gas, Electric, Propane or Fuel Oil? 
  •  Is heating cost too high to make winter production worthwhile?
Heating Cost Calculator
  •  How much power will I need to run the aquaponics system?
  •  What will be my monthly power cost?
  •  If I use lights, how much will I have to pay for lights
  •  If I choose electric water and space heating what will my costs be for that?
Power Cost Calculator
 All the numbers you need so you can build your aquaponics system without dealing with complicated Equations!
Instructions on How To Use the Calculator are Provided on Every Sheet
Backyard Design Calculator
  •  This calculator is designed to give you all the design parameters you need to build a backyard system by just the input of the        bed width, length and the number of grow beds.The calculator is very intuitive to use and all the formulas used are visible so that as you familiarize yourself with the tool you learn the theory behind it as well.
  •  Advantage: You only need 3 initial parameters.
  •  Benefit: No more guess work. Enter the numbers and get the values you need to build your system.
 Small Commercial Design Calculator
  •  The commercial calculator is designed to give you all the design parameters you need to build a small commercial system with just a few inputs. The resulting output values include:
  •  Get the water needed for the fish, fish tank size needed, number of fish tanks required, number of fish required, amount and weight of fish required and feed per day required.
  •  Advantage: Everything you need in one simple, easy to use tool
  • Benefit: Get the information you need for your project. Calculates over 25 parameters including the amount       of fish, water needed and plants gown.
Feed and Grow Area Calculator
  • The commercial and backyard calculators gives you the amount of fish and fish related data as the output based on the input grow area, whereas the Feed and Grow Area calculator sheet has been designed to give you the total grow area (in ft, m2 and in number of rafts) that can be supported with a given amount of fish and feed per biomass ratio. 
  • This tool is extremely handy when you need to figure out the grow area or the number of rafts that you can use and how much you will need to feed the fish in your system to have super healthy plants.
  •  Advantage: No more guess work in getting the amount of feed that is required by your system on a daily basis. 
  • Benefit: Fully customizable to your system. Enter the data specific to your project.
Heating Cost Calculator 
  •  This calculator is designed to give you all the design parameters you need to build a backyard system by just the input of the         bed width, length and the number of grow beds. The calculator is very intuitive to use and all the formulas used are visible so that as you familiarize yourself with the tool you learn the theory behind it as well.
  •  Advantage: Know exactly what you'll spend o heating your greenhouse
  • Benefit:        Know what you'll pay for the cost of heating in the winter for any size greenhouse.
Power Consumption
  •  Determine the power consumption in kWh and the associated costs or running your aquaponics system, which includes pumps and aeration, lights, water, space heating etc.
  •  Advantage: On top of the heating cost know the cost of running most other systems in your greenhouse.
  • Benefit: Get        basic power consumption cost for your system that include the most energy consuming components like light and space heaters.

What People Are Saying
"We are just starting the design of our small aquaponics farm and we bought this calculator to help us with the designing. I must say it, it made the whole learning curve really small. We got most if not all the info we needed. Highly recommend it."
- Alexander Marchenko, Comox Valley
"This calculator has made the whole design process very easy and more importantly, accurate. You need to feed it the numbers you already know and it will give you detail figures on what you need to build your system. It was a little confusing at first but then it got simpler as I used it more. Thanks!"
- Michelle Tulloh, Olympia, WA
"Ahmed, thank you for listening before preaching, asking before telling and importantly being flexible enough to tailor the plan to our needs. The calculator and the business plan were invaluable for our planning. Your knowledge of business comes from experience and not just a book."
