    I just read on Facebook he just passed away. How sad. Found memories of his pond escapades, like the truck rolling into his pond.
    Anyone know what happened?

    Each piece is over lapped 50% or 4 feet. The hole for the ring is bigger than the ring. Once it's all screwed together it can be moved and shaped. I use stales screwed to the outside to level it.

    Two BD's and two skimmers on a 3000 gallon pond sounds like overkill.
    BUT
    My choice would be to gravity flow them to a Aqua Forte 111 sieve.
