    If in doubt of your local chlorination practises or levels, you can always keep one mat back or rinse it in pond water.

    The ERIC is his "new" filter design that he is selling.
    It is based pretty much on an "old" filter design which is basically a low head, multiple chamber, long throw filter. You won't find ERIC in Koi Kichi (one of his older books) as it is a new acronym for the long throw design.
    ERIC = "Endless River In Concrete"

    Here's a question ( seeing that Luke is MIA)

    Does the designer and manufacturer of the new/old plastic chamber filter box use it on HIS pond? Or is he using the modified green cylinder bay design?

    Yours reminds me a lot of one I saw in Bakersfield last fall. Great series of raceways with bead filters to polish things off. Needless to say the water looked great
    Hi Larry,
    How are you doing? I'm kinda busy with my game fowls right now. Don't have much time as I use to. Might be headed your way before temperatures starts going up.

    Michael - let us know if you're heading this way - I'll make the three-hour drive to visit with you! (And Larry too, I guess... )

    the link posted had an example that has me wondering.... it is a bottom drain to pump question.
    I can see why having each drain it's own pump and filter would be the best way to go, but just looking at the dynamics of BD to pump part of the set up are these numbers accurate? NOTHING comes from the furthest drain? regardless of pump strength or diamiter of plumbing?

    " In actual running, the drain nearest the filter supplies over 90% of the water, the middle one supplies 10% and the one on the left supplies nothing. Only the pond base on the nearest drain is being serviced correctly which results in an expensive failure. "

    I think you misunderstand me Barb? I'm asking if the designer/manufacturer is using this chamber box on his personal pond or is he using the large vortex design? Now you KNOW I know that answer-- But after this post I can almost hear the sawsall being put into action to cover the tracks and hide the evidence.
