    Pictures of waterfalls and what the pond look like now the waterfalls is operated by an electric actuated 3way valve so by a flick of a switch you can turn it on and when you turn it off the water is diverted back to the tpr . The covered deck will go were the gravel area is and over hang the pond were there is no couping on the top like my drawing on first page.

    Nice looking pond. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

    Question: Why turn the water fall off?

    Comment: There seems to be a lot of surface foam (DOCs) when water fall is running.

    Why cause I can, no its nice to have it running at times but its also nice to have the silence too.

    Yes we had rain for the last 3 days and every time it rains i get bubbles on the surface?
    In that shot there is also a bottom drain air diffuser running just in front of the waterfalls.

    Nice pond. It's a shame no one stopped you from using all those 2" 90 deg fittings earlier on. They severely restrict flow. Sweeps or 45s would have been much better but in general a very nice pond.

    Well been a few years to get back heroes for all the 90 deg it was a tight space and has 5 pumps. I'm using schedule 40 PVC and did the total friction head for all 6 returns and they are very low the highest return line is 4.54' total friction head so it work just fine! Will have to show more pictures come summer or when it wars up
