    Patrick, very nice video and you make it look so easy. If Patrick can do it, so can I. Actually, you're pretty good as a handyman. And your English is quite good. Thank you very much!

    I spent last weekend at Quality Koi's harvest event (U.S.). Airlift systems are everywhere and are moving tremendous volumes at low cost. They pay for themselves in a comparatively short time and then produce constant savings. If I was planning a new pond, I would design it to use airlifts over pumps to the greatest extent possible. That would mean eliminating bead pressure filters and shower filters, which inherently require pumps. While I would not like giving up multiple types of filtration, the cost savings of air pumps over water pumps is substantial and electric savings over time would pay for some very high-end koi.

    Thanks for the nice instructional video and lovely pond and patio.

    I have one question. The holes are one millimeter size. Is there a chance that over time the holes get blocked?

    110 mm pipes easy to find in the Philippines. What's hard to find are the 110mmx125mm bushing reducers and the 125mm pvc coupling. US websites like flexpvc don't carry much metric, are there any Dutch, French, or British websites that carry them? Would appreciate some links.

    it is not important to have this reducer but well to have a compression part, use any other reducer that is bigger of the 110 pipe than you adapt , the most important think is the 110 pipe and 6 foot length

    You're right. I could go with two 160x110mm bushing reducers and a 160mm coupling. It will just be a larger compression chamber at the base. Those parts I could buy here. Thanks Patrick.
