Glad to see you used my idea and had a great success. Good luck and thanks
for the compliment.

Author PaulM708 (2 years)
I actually do let the water run over into my flowers when ever I flush out
the pot. Thanks for the suggestion.

Author PaulM708 (1 year)
I did have a huge problem with them at the beginig. This is why I leave the
pot uncovered. In my earlier videos i had made a top for the pot but when I
would remove the top to check the filter there would be tons of mosquitos.
Ouch! I realized that by leaving the top off the sun would beam on the pot
thus keeping them out. I also made sure there was plenty of movement in the
pot so the wate didn't appear stagment. I was considering the mosquito dunk
tablets for this summer. Just for precautions.

@c4prlm4st3r That's Greta. I'm glad you were able to use my idea. I think
the pot gives a good asttetics to the pond. Good luck. Post a video or send

One of the best and most aesthetically bio filters I've seen.

Author naturescaper (1 year)
Oh wow, yea I see what you mean! Out here in Oregon its mostly an issue
because it gets so cold, especially if installed away from any buildings or
residual heat, so they have to be built really well and pretty deep if
someone does want one. I have only built one in my 20 years building ponds/
landscaping and I didnt even get to do the filtration part of it, we just
did the shaping, excavating and some of the initial plumbing:-) Well, keep
beautifying the Bronx brother, I hope it catches on!!!

Author PaulM708 (1 year)
Thank you for viewing my videos and I'm glad you enjoyed them. Good luck on
you newest project, I'm sure it will be great. I have always felt that
having a pond on your property, especially with Koi is one of the most
beautiful and tranquil things one can do to just sit back and enjoy.

Author PaulM708 (1 year)
Thanks, check out my channel. There are a few more segments for this pond.

Do you have an issues with mosquitoes living or breeding in your filter?

Author PaulM708 (2 years)
Thuank you very much for the compliment.

Author PaulM708 (1 year)
Jay Jay, Thanks. I made the spout out of 3/4 PVC tubing which I drilled 1/8
inch holes through both sides spacing them 1" apart. It is a very affective
spray bar. I did consider going smaller on the tubing but felt that the
pressure from the pump would create too much splash, thus losing a lot of
the water from the filter.

Sorry for the delayed response but THANK YOU very much for the compliment.

When I first set up my pond (see my first videos) I purchased a Lifegard
Aquatics All In One Complete Pond Filter System. For Ponds or Water gardens
from 300 gallons up to 1500 gallons. I paid about 200.00 bucks. Since I've
set up my homemade filter I continue to use the pump and UV light that came
with the system. You could Google Lifegard Aquatics and click on the link
to get the specifics of the pump ect. But I will try to post it for you.

Author PaulM708 (2 years)
Thanks for the kind words and looking at my video. There are a few more

My ex husband and son are in the process of building me a pond.I had 2
ponds at a prior home which was destroyed in the Alabama tornadoes two
years ago, so this will be a new beginning of sorts.We had trouble finding
rocks but finally found some exactly like what you have used.I can now
envision how my pond will look and your demo of the filter system also
helps so much.Thanks for sharing.

How offen do you clean this fliter

Author PaulM708 (2 years)
First off the pond is approximately 250 gallons. I have five goldfish and
twelve Koi. The water is crystal clear with minimal algae growth. I tend to
have to clean the filter more often than I'd like due to my wife over
feeding. She just can't get enough of watching them come up for food. This
was a last minute project last year and has so far been doing very well. I
am considering removing the preformed pond and going bigger with a vinyl
liner. Perhaps next year. Thanks for the comments.

Author PaulM708 (1 year)
Thank you for the comment. I wish there were more pond busineses around
here also. I'm in the Bronx and have to shop on the net or go ouside of the
city to garden centers or pet shops. Besides a pond with koi in thr Bronx
is probably one of the rarest things in the city.

Author Haimish Chandra (2 years)
How many gallons is the pond? And how many fish do you have? Does it keep
the water clean? How is the algae growth? Love the design! And simplicity :)

Author naturescaper (1 year)
Cool idea and nice job on it!!! I wish we had more Koi pond business around

Author PaulM708 (2 years)
I've been checking on the filter often and so far I've washed out the top
filter pad twice since the beginning of April. It was as simple as rinsing
the pad off with the hose and reinstalling it. If I eventually place a lid
on the pot I would probably prevent the heavy algea growth and then
wouldn't need to clean the pads as often. Usually once a month.

What kind of pump are you using for your intake?

Author PaulM708 (2 years)
Well I just checked the website and the pump model number is R440442 which
puts out 679 gph. Not to mention it is a very quiet pump.

How/ what did you make the spout out of?

Author c4prlm4st3r (3 years)
hi paul.Using your idea for my koi pond. Different is, i am using clay pot.
Try to find the plastic pot for easy construction but they selling all pot
with drain hole at the bottom. Notice you pot do not have drain hole.For
filter media i just use aquarium filter pad coarse and fine. On top i put
some garden rock to make it stay apart. Work very well till now.

Author PaulM708 (2 years)
Thank you for the kind words. Glad you liked my pond and my project filter.
It is winter now and still running strong. Haven't done any filter changes
yet all is well. Thanks again.
