Check out the long film at ! It is part of the DVD “Sepp Holzer´s Permaculture” which you can purchase there. A film about the sustainable use of water by Austrian farmer Sepp Holzer. Fishponds on a mountain farm: an unusual sight at these altitudes. On an Austrian mountain, permaculture farmer Sepp Holzer created more than 70 ponds and wetland areas covering about 3 hectares. Filmmakers Malcolm St.Julian Bown and Heidi Snel have published a DVD with 3 films on Sepp Holzer. Find the DVD at

    @cbmills I cant seem to find any info. Ive seen that the by products of PVC are toxic, during the production phase. Ive seen that burning it releases dioxin which is carcinogenic. I cant seem to find any evidence that supports it as toxic when not being burnt or produced.

    Do some research first! Put into Google the following search terms “PVC highly toxic dangerous poison” about 9,040 search results….!

    PVC is one of the most dangerous of all plastics out there, with the most dangerous toxins!

    Put the following ‘search terms’ into Google “PVC highly toxic dangerous poison” straight away about “9,040” search results…

    organic in a sense of a chemical compound which just means it contains carbon. PVC itself in nature has a half life in the order of 10^5 years, so you’re actually right, when you say its barely degradable – but again, its not toxic. Its polymerchains are bound to each other like spaghetti by some very very strong entropic force, which makes it quite inert against water. For a moment accept some scientific facts and leave your idealisms aside

    Yes, never use it for incoming drinking water, only wastewater.

    Such ignorance! PVC is far from organic and made of very hazardous dangerous toxic synthetic-chemicals throughout its whole life-cycle from production through final use and its not Bio-degradable! it leaches & pollutes the environment. While there are many safe cheap alternatives beside PVC…

    PVC is far from toxic, unless you burn it, although it’s an organic polymer, artificial and much more difficult to recycle

    @ase010 are you sure PVC is toxic?

    @ase010 how much is it a foot per clay pipe at a 1 inch diameter?

  10. ase010 July 10, 2009 at 4:46 am #

    There are some very good ideas, except he uses PVC what is highly toxic! its better to use natural clay pipes to transport the waters, also his methods are not very usefully for every location.

    I saw the glory hole for water and all I could think about was Viktor Schauberger and his work with nature and water.

    i’m going to use this for a school project, is that okay?

    simply beautiful!

    The full video of this ‘Farming With Water’ Sepp Holzer is probably the best video available on sustainable aquaculture in my opinion. Thanks for posting this clip, great to see it on Youtube.
