Did this video help you?

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 FIlter

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 line? Thanks

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

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
