Re: Pond Filter #1
Hi,
Thanks for your kind reply, I thought in the short term I would have time to see if I could change to a filter box as I can sort out the box level in relation to the pond.

I have new bulb every year and clean casing as well with vinegar.

However got up this am and can see the filter dripping as I have it out on decking while I try to sort it out.

So I have bitten the bullet and purchased another pressure filter but gone for a hozelock bioforce revolution 14000 (please no one send me nightmare stories as bought it now). I need to get it installed ASAP as will be away for a couple of days and will just stress about it as pond is loosing water.

I just need to hope this stops the water level dropping (it is not a leak in pond as have checked that).

Thanks Sue

Sue

Pond Filter #2
Hi Everyone,
I have a decking pond that has 2,500 litres with a Blagdon hybrid force pump 10,000 and what was a Blagdon Cyclone 20,000. It is leaking and needs replacing. I did have a waterfall but now removed so just a small pond. The pressure filter is in a raised bed of sleepers.

I have about 5 koi, couple of old orfes and some water lilies.

I need to replace the filter, do I go for a gravity filter such as hozelock revolution 14,000 or another pressure filter?

I have not been that impressed with quality of the water with the pressure filter and keep getting green water. It is south facing garden but I can't change that!

Any suggestions would be so welcome.

Thank you so much
Sue

Re: New members please say hello #3
Hi,
Very new to site. I have one nature pond down the end of the garden which seems to be used for bathing by my garden birds(lovely to sit and watch). There are some newts in there and a frog, not hoping for many more.

I then have a decking pond with now only a few Koi, couple of old orfes and one goldfish. It is only a small pond, 8ft x 6ft but I seem to spend most of my time doing something to it.
