Update on the Rocket Stove Heater Build

Donald Beres Jr

Recorded on October 28, 2013 using a Flip Video camera. Here is a quick look at what I got built already, but I need to tweak it already.

As it is throwing the smoke back out the feed tube. I think I made the system here to compact. I believe I will have to extend the tank to let the inside riser create a stronger drafting effect.

I'll get to it as soon as I get some other stuff done for my cousin since I am using his equipment and scrap I guess that is only fair. Once I get It working correctly I'll do some grinding and painting on It.

I am creating videos for those who are interested in Sustainable Living, Alternative gardening, Organic foods,Growing their own fish, and much more.

 I belong to several like minded Meetups and I am trying to start and run one of my own called "Living & Growing for Our Tomorrows, Sustainable Healthy Foods" You can the link for It in past post and I will be putting a direct link here soon in the side bar.

I am still trying to wind down from the season of Well Service work and looking to creep into some Gardening and some more experimenting with gizmos and gadgets such as these Rocket Stoves and Gassifiers. Until next Time Angels.

The Meet Up Group For the Aquaponics Build at Sowles Well Services

Hey all! How have you been? Me I am still Busy, busy, busy. Going a hundred miles an hour and only getting ten feet up the road on a full tank.

I have started a Meet Up Group to try and get others interested in Our Aquaponics Garden build. Here in Indiana. The Site is Located in Hebron and is a private Home owners Lot. Which I am currently building our first Test run of the Aquponics System.

We both have had gardens in the past and a Traditional Garden is so much more work and the pay off is a hit or miss for most of us backyard Gardeners. The Weather,  the Time, The effort, and the Labor is some times to demanding for us. With the Weeds, the Birds, the Rodents, and the Bugs not to mention the possibility of disease.

I have set two Meet Ups already in the first month of starting the Group and so far Only I and my Sponsor have showed up. I know it will take some Time it always does. To build a following let alone a tight knit Group dedicated to seeing this Venture through.

I know many don't want to do the dirty work that I am currently doing by myself. And getting things ordered up and running is always a drag. But this is where I am at today. Out of Money and lacking time to get everything done. The Season is changing and I am running out of good working weather.

So I am looking for others in the Greater Chicago Land area or even the Tri-State area to Share Ideas with, to teach, and learn from others with. I am sure there are many backyard Gardeners that could teach me many tricks and tips. As I can show them some as well. But I am looking for the new and Organic way of producing Healthy and Nutritional Foods Organically. And on a smaller piece of land or even in Ones own Basements, Back porch,  or in their Garages.

I have some pictures up here at Our Meet Up Page on what I am doing and the conditions of where I am at with the Aquaponics Build.  Here is the Link to the Meet Up Home Page:

Here are some recycled Pressure tanks from the Well Service Company. I help out from time to time to pay for the use of the land I am using to Build this Aquaponics Garden on. I have turned these seven tanks into my Filtration system. I have access to these use tanks from time to to time. I will get a video up as soon as I can. Most likely after I  get them installed and working. We are Saving money and being as Green as possible as often as possible.

I have several Blog posts here at this Blog on the  Aquaponics Garden Build check them out. I also have a couple of Hubs at In the side bar here is a link to my Hubpages Profile. You can scroll through my Hubs there.

Here is a Rocket Heater I am trying to build for the first Time for our Garden's Green house. These are some of the metal tanks we come across and haul away for our customers. We usually just scrap them out but if we can build something worth building we might do it if we can find the time. And it is worth our wild to do.

I have a Youtube Video here in one of my older posts that shows where I got the Ideal for our Green house. We built at the Aquaponics build site at Sowles Well Services. It cost Us under three hundred dollars. It is a thirty foot by twelve foot Green house. Here is that post:

Well I got tons of other stuff to do so I got to run .

Come One, Come All, I am Calling Out to You!

Hey All, I have created a Meet Up Page or Account in hopes of starting up a group interested in Learning and sharing their Aquaponics secretes with each other. It would be for those of us in the greater Chicago land area mostly but everyone is welcome to join to share and learn of what we have to offer.

So far as of today Oct. 06 2013 we have five members. We have had one Meet up so far and two of us showed and so Its begun. We have a Meetup scheduled for  tomorrow Oct 7th at 6:30pm at the Aquaponics Garden build site in Hebron IN. This is short notice I know and I am sorry I will work on getting better.  You can go to and search for our group Its called "Living & Growing for Our Tomorrows" Sustainable Healthy Foods. There you will find all of our pictures and past Meetups But we are New less than a month old so far and we are just figuring things out both with Meetup and the Garden  too.

I am the organizer so I will be posting here and there as I do with everything I am doing so come and check us out. We are hoping to button up the Green house this month and I have started messing around with a rocket heater just this past Friday I have it roughly figured out and will get pictures and maybe a video soon of It. It is made from two recycled metal pressure tanks and some square tube stock that we had lying around in the scrap pile. I will also start selling some recycled Fiberglass tanks to be used in your own Aquaponics filtering systems or your Pond filtering systems. I'll be placing video here soon of these tanks and how we are using them in our system.

Our system build has fallen way off of schedule as we have been plagued with mechanical breakdowns and many repairs to our vehicles at the Well Service these last few months. Right now our 1,000 gallon holding tank is being used to drill Wells with as our water truck is going under a major brake overhaul. Here is the link to our photo albums at

Well I will be getting back here soon with more pictures and hopefully some videos of the rocket heater and the Aquaponics Garden Build @ Sowles Well Service.

I've got to run now because I am under the gun and Time is slipping away.
