    New Small Pond

    I just finished a new pond. It's dry stacked blocks, liner, 6 by 14 feet, 2 1/2 feet deep. a little over 1600 gal. with filtration. 4" Koi toilet 2 bottom drain reduced to 3" feeding a settling/strapping bio tank. A Evolution ES 2500 pump tales suction from that and feeds a sand/gravel filter with one of my home made Savio UV adapters, then 30+ feet of 2" line running to the unfinished waterfall.
    Since this is a "For Sale" pond for Sarassas, Wakins, and small Koi, of course it will be severely over stocked, so the skimmer is only an overflow to waste as I will run a very small trickle flow through with well water.

    Thats a good one..

    Hello there,
    It seems like to be simple and gentle one. Check for the filtrations process every month or week.

    Very neat, like your DIY filters.

    Thanks Bob. Pretty basic and simple, but thet work good. Did you notice my DIY Savio UV on the outlet of the sand, gravel filter?

    Looks great. It's given me some ideas when it comes time to build my pond.

    Nice set up! I am surprised it's only 2-1/2 feet deep, though. Just curious. It is nice that it is sitting in a protected area next to the building there.

    This is just for sarassa gold fish. Our big 12,000 gal. water garden pond is 4 feet deep and our 6700 gal main pond is almost 7 feet deep.
    Just planted some trees around it this weekend.
