And he is HAPPY!
Can't wait the get the Bird Back.
I really like the new GC Tec filters. Give me a call if you want and we can discuss your options.
There are dozen's of people here deserving this award bur one person really comes to mind. He is always here helping people. His ponds are finished, up and running. He could have just kicked back...
No, the 55 gallon barrels work best.
Takes a smaller blower.
Lose less water with flushings.
Multiple small flushes instead of one big one.
I don't see a bottom drain, will you be adding one?
Like Steve said that ought to work just fine.
Looks to me like that is not a standard 55 gallon barrel. Every 55 gallon barrel I have seen has been 22 to 23 inches at the bottom. My air blower manifolds are 21" and fit in a 22" shipping box...
Like Rich said that outer wall needs to come in flush with the face of the skimmer.
Still here with you Steve. Nothing to add but wishing the big girl well.
Anything can be added later as long as you plan for it and leave 3 or so inches after every PVC fitting so it can be cut apart and added on to later.
Looking good John.
I would reccomend the EVO 55 UV. It's a bit over kill for your pond but priced very reasonably. It will handle the flow of your pump, and replacement bulbs are only 40 bucks a pop.
Another good option is the EVO UV.
That will work just fine Jeff.
Following this closely Steve. Wish I had some suggestions but I'm also at a loss. Good luck with her.
Do you have to run both skimmers or can you fill the burn't skimmer with concrete and just run one skimmer?
One Aqua Forte Ultra Sieve 111 can handle both your BDs and skimmer. From that you can use one pump to feed multiple filters, such as S/G filters, Moving bed filters, or bead filter. With the sieve...
The air manifolds I make have 100 3/16th holes in them.
No I don't.
I'm kind of late here so all I can do is agree with all the suggestions. I like 6 feet deep my self.
I have two molds for my Fiberglass shower trays, 30" and 48". My fiberglass shop went out of buisness so I can no longer make shower trays. I have $6000 invested in these two molds. They are to...
Thank you all for your nice thoughts. It's people like you that make it all worth while for me.
We're looking forward to it also.
Thank you Jeff, I really appreciate your comments. Made my day.
For your size pond you can easily do it with one Aqua Forte 111 sieve. Run both BDs teed together to one inlet, the skimmer to the other inlet, then one pump to the TPRs and Bog.
By the way I am...
Skimmer selection should be based on the type of construction and leaf load. If you are going to have a large leaf load you can't beat the large Savio Skimmers with their large ridged leaf basket' ...
Ya, he didn't know how his wife goy pregnant like he didn't know how the truck got in the pond.
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?
Water will come out the air blower stand pipe when the filter need flushing. Just remove the air blower and cap the stand pipe when not flushing.
Those are really not the best way to go. They have to be pressure/pump fed, can not be gravity fed, and talk high hp pumps to run them. Most people use 2" gravity flow TPRs to keep operating costs...
I agree with Mike. A lot of your pieces are not matched, flow wise, and not enough for a pond your size..
I would not use the savio skimmer but instead use two of the in wall wade mouth waterway...
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.
My choice would be to gravity flow them to a Aqua Forte 111 sieve.
Yes, you must use a liner. 1/4" plywood is some what bendable, I screw three layers together to end up with 3/4 inch. The whole ring can be raised to lowered to set the level of the pond. Then the...
I would try to make the sides steeper. I would pull the liner, dig the sides steeper, put a plywood ring out of 3 layers of 1/4" plywood around the pond, kind of like this picture. Make the plywood...
I would run a new line.
I was going to offer you mine but you got one.
I was going to suggest the clogged impeller but Mike beat me to it. Glad you were able to fix your problems.
Glad I could help Kurt.
Advantage does not sell retail, only through dealers like me. So you won't find much info about them on the internet.
Really nice Dan.
The plastic ring that broke is what's called a wear ring. It is designed to wear out instead of the impeller wearing out if run caveated.
Yes the vanes in the impeller have a small opening but...
Why not go with a river flow design. All water flowing from a shallow end to a deep end. If you do this you can get away with one 4" BD and one skimmer, both tee-ed together flowing to a Cetus...
Get a street 90 and put it in your waste outlet when flushing. This will raise the water level in the barrel and stop from losing sand, but you might also splash some water out. Loosing sand from...
I think they are. My favorite media is feather rock and as long as the flow is high enough they are pretty much self cleaning. No maintenance required.
