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 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.

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!

Mike March: I have rebuilt my filter using gravel. Here is that video: DIY Gravel FIlter

Prepping Angel: Please no music. It's hard to hear you. :)

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? 

techtiptricks: those 40 watt pondmaster uv clarifiers are the best on the market

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

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

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

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!!!!

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!

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

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.

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.

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
