Aphids!

Need some advice to get rid of aphids. I have tried the soapy killer (under the leaves), removing the pods and rinsing the plants, air blasting the leaves, and I have been changing the water every 2 weeks (timed with the nutrient cycle).  Can't get rid of them!  Suggestions?

What kind of plants are the aphids on?

They're almost impossible to get rid of. On a long-lived plant (peppers, especially), you have to decide whether you're willing to keep bathing the plant every week, it seems like. On lettuce, I'd just start over.
