Aleece Landis's comment, September 24, 2013 8:51 AM
While people tend to get all excited by the idea of "vertical" growing, I like to remind people that pumping up higher requires more electricity, is often only suited to very small plants, and requires more maintenance (making sure things don't clog or overflow.) By training vine and large plants up, that is ALSO vertical growing and nature takes care of lifting the water up for that. Biggest issues with the pipes have to do with temperature and if you are doing Aquaponics, you must pre-filter your water before sending it to the pipes like this or the fish poo/uneaten feed will goop up around plant roots after a few weeks and create a stinking mess. Simply pumping water from a fish tank to plants in pipes is NOT a complete aquaponic system and won't provide enough filteration for the fish tank on it's own.
