      The pump is actually the 7800 version and it is not too powerful for this system. The MC-50 does not have a flow limit that any koi pond pump can deliver (50 PSI max...Not really by flow rate) and the Zakki Sieve has a flow rate of 4500 gph. This pond is flowing at 4000 gph currently mostly due to the static head height 63" plus about 6-7' of dynamic head loss due to the plumbing and equipment used. The pump is also old so it is probably flowing less water than it originally did.

      I use Georg Fischer 375 TUBV's and they are of very high quality, with a moderate price tag. I get them from a local industrial supply house but you will not find them in the big box stores. My pricing on the 3" valves are $155 and $65 for the 2" valves.

      As in all of your work excellent job with the equipment manufacture and installation.

      I still think you need to expand your sieve line with more models. You also need a BFH for concrete instead of your claw hammer (HaHa).

      Yeah I know!!!!! If I would have been prepared for this I would have had my chipping hammer and made quick work of this, but the warehouse was 30 minutes away and it only took me 40 minutes to cut/chip it out.

      Once the filters are fully cycled the water clarity will only get better.

      Well the Mattingly's decided that they wanted the water to return into the pond instead of onto the base of the rocks. So I fabricated a weir extension and installed it today!

      Before...


      After...



      I also decided to take some pictures of their fancy Algae Defense System

      Thanks guys... I was hoping it would blend in nicely. Once they get the area landscaped it will be really nice.
