    Talking Tpr placement in pond

    How deep should these the tpr's be placed in my pond would 18 to 24 inches be deep enough i have decided to down size the width to 14 feet x 18 length
    increase depth to 5 foot skimmer filter in each end /to s/g filters to water fall./ and decided to do it with cement block and re-bar instead of the dirt pit/ 3 foot of pond will be under ground and 2 foot of it above ground.

    ? Do you have to have the tpr's that you can adjust the stream direction / or can i just use 2 inch slip to slip bulk fitting installed in my liner / or will 2 inch be a might to big?

    Cant wait eager to get going

    They are usually placed 12"-18" off the bottom to help sweep the junk to your bottom drain. You do not have to have adjustable TPRs and size will depend on your flow rates.

    If your doing block I notch the top of the 2nd row of block and put the TPRs in this notch. This ends up to being 14" off the bottom.
