Re: ok made my hole now what #11
Are you sure you mean the mega box as they have a gravity outlet on them and wouldnt really work that great being on a gravity inlet system?

Re: ok made my hole now what #12
ok i have got confused again you mean the mega box will have to be above the water line and drop out of the bottom into the pond like down my water fall

so if i was to go for gravity fed system and build it all on same level which filter would you go for, i think you have already answered this but confused again.


ok with a blank piece of paper and a pond of 3.4 X 2.0 X 1.25 deep (1100 gallons ) and you had ?250ish to spend on pump and filter which way would you go.

Re: ok made my hole now what #13
?250 is a little on the sort side for a gravity fed system as no one really does a package. In terms of brands and products to look for;

Kockney Koi Firbreglass Filters (idealy with a vortex)
Oase AquaMax Eco Pump (flow rate depends on the filter)
Kockney Koi UV 15 or 25watt depending on how much sunlight the pond will get.

The only other way tou get a cheaper filter is to make your own;

Re: ok made my hole now what #20
Roundup is good on most weeds.
But if your lining it with black liner then that would do it too as you can buy black plastic sheeting to put over your garden to kil of troulesome weeds.
