Mike March: Here is a video of my Kio Pond.... underwater with the fish.
Koi Pond Underwater
Mike March: I have rebuilt my filter using gravel. Here is that video: DIY Gravel
Mike March: I just did a small upgrade to this filter system. I am trying a gravel
filter now. My mother is STILL using this system on her 3,200 gallon pond
and it is working great! I will put up a video of the new layout soon.
Rafael caceres: Great video just a quick question the UV light what does do and does it
have be on all the time
Prepper Angel: Please no music. It's hard to hear you. :)
David Rickards: I wanted to hear what you were saying but all I heard was some music
playing the entire time you were talking. Very distracting!
Carol Scott: I dont understand how the water is getting from the stock tank to the
pond-I see the water coming into the tank but dont see pipe going from tank
to the pond
techtiptricks: those 40 watt pondmaster uv clarifiers are the best on the market
PalJoey1957: I like your basic setup. Only thing I would do differently is lose the
screen bags. Let the polyfill expand to the edges of the tub. As it
stands, the bags create a path of least resistance for the water to channel
and avoid the denser polyfill. Then the furnace or air conditioner screens
on top of that and a plastic leaf screen at the very top. For reasons
unknown to me, many people avoid polyester fiber. But it has infinitely
more area than rocks or gravel to make a bacteria bed and is easily changed
at an ultra low price in case of overload emergencies. Bacteria already in
the pond will re-populate the filter very quickly. Nice job.
MOVIEMAKERSIII: That looks good I am using 2 , 150 plus a Bakki. I should say building. But
the pond looks to small ? I have started to dig and I got a 14 foot stream,
goes to main pond which is about 10 foot deep and goes up to 2 like a
beach. Then a 6 foot water fall drop. And a stream to second pond which is
6 foot deep .. I don't know the gallons cause I just keep digging. But pond
1 is 10 foot deep by 20 ft. By 9 ft wide .. Pond 2 is about 6ft deep and 12
x 12 ... One 14 ft stream and a 2 ft deep by 5 ft length to connect the
ponds. That is what I got so far. How much gallons is that?
rockydog0: I have everything but the blue air conditioner filter material, just can't
find it locally. What is it made of and is there some place I can buy it on
Kevin Jones: I really like your entire setup and want to copy most of it for my pond I
have a 1000 gallon pond and I need to build a better filter system and a
waterfall for it. Could you breakdown and give me a list of your parts
please. Great Job!!!!
Don Cericola: You are just as nuts as me. I've been designing mechanical filters
and pumps for over twenty years and I like what you've done. If anyone
wants a clear pond, go mechanical. People aren't patient enough for bio.
There's no magic pill for nature. So, go mechanical.
Richard Stallings: Best design I've seen for an efficient filter, (DIY) I whish you could have
published a list of the PVC parts you used. I'm spending a great deal of
time and several hundred dollars to put this together for my pond because I
just went thru a big problem when my two other filters ceased to function.
my fish suffered and I lost one of my largest fish (24") Butterfly Koi.
Thanks in advance
Bryan Mills: I know this in an old post but commenting anyway...simple is always best! I
have a small pond at my front garden. I use nothing but live plants in the
pond. From the pump the water goes into the bottom of the 20 gallon
spliiway/waterfall. I filled the waterfall container with red lava rock and
was done. RINSE the lave rocks firstI have crystal clear water all season!
marshall886: Why can you hide the fountain in the water if you just want to aerate the
water instead of having out as a feature, you know like a jacuzzi jet.
richardmckay888: i would put a water fall in for air at far side of pool run pvc pipe up
behind piled rock then i would use perspex or acrylic and make like steps
from the perspex for the water to flow down think that would finish your
beautiful pond off
sissy murphy: clean them with peroxide and water as peroxide is just a by product of
barley straw breakdown and will not harm the fish
Mick Bradford: Very informative and enjoyable video! But one suggestion; don't use any
music if you do another one. It takes away from from the content. Good luck
with your project and thanks for sharing it.
Steven Fortenberry: Nice I love it !!!!
Mike March: The pump itself is pushing 3,500 gallons. It's just attached to the tubing
with radiator clamps. You need to use a gate valve to control the flow at
that rate, or you will overflow your filter container. I will be posting a
video of the first spring cleaning in a few weeks.
shane wedge: How do you slow down the water pressure I have 4000 gph pump and last time
I tried a type like this it went crazy
e1casper: redneck rig !! I love it
latinmike7: lose the music , we are trying to Learn sometihng form you
saltwatermike1: that is very similar the way i made my filter . i used lava rock in bottom
and is working great. but it gets realy heavy ,ill have to try the mesh
bags. thanks great video.
annushka0804: very nice video,love your filter!
arshi khur: I can not hear you, with the music in the background. It beats the purpose.
I want to learn how to make filter not listen music
jenifer wilkerson: please tell me how you hooked this system up to your pump. i have been
looking for a good diy filter, and you have the best. thank you
Muchacho 1994: VHS is and always will be better than DVD. ColonelK0rn1: Looks like a fantastic place to visit! Darnell Waugh: Ah yes, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a time before me Alan Perez: Beast is a awesome acrobat. Who's smarter? Mr. Fantasic or Beast? VisualMaximus: Such an awesome movie it was epic. Something that i find a bit odd is the
fact there is another end-credits scene with Bucky after the first
end-credit scene, just me and my mates had stayed back to watch it we were
literally the last ones there. Vivian Sutton: I will say one thing that is a big negative for me in this game
The absolute messed up weight classes. Lightweights have the best
acceleration AND SPEED WHAT!? Every other Mario Kart game has defined
weight classes, the heavier you are, the faster you can go, but the slower
you accelerate and the worse your handling is. Mario Kart 64's weight tiers
were pretty much proven to be messed up when you realize that midweights
also had the WORST ACCELERATION.
The game was great for the day though regardless! Battle Mode is the
absolute highlight of the game and Yoshi Valley and DK Jungle Parkway are
two of the best courses in the entire franchise! It's got its flaws, and
I'd rather play Double Dash (IMO, best in the franchise) but if I've got my
older brother round I'm happy enough to play it with him, even if I'm not
so great at it...
In terms of competitors at the time, I feel Speed Freaks/Punks was the
better game overall, WAY better single player, defined weight classes,
unlockable characters, mirror matching, 32 courses (though half of them
were 1 or 2 players only) a nitro system way before the days of The Fast
and the Furious arcade games and the weapons were hilariously chaotic but
balanced out! Sadly the 4 player mode's tracks were a little lacking, still
the gameplay was solid regardless of number of players!
I think the 8/10 scores were pretty fair, it's a great game, but it's seen
better days. Still nice to pop out once in a while for old time's sake thrunsalmighty: Haben Sie über eine Nosejob gedacht?
