      Something different to think about.

      If it was mine, I would eliminate the creek and lower pong and just build one really nice larger pond where the top pond is. It would really simplify filtration and electrical location. You could add a nice deck or patio and have all your viewing pleasure right out your door.
      Thanks for chiming in Steve! I've been lurking on this forum for a couple years and I've learned alot from you,both Steve's actually, already and value your opinions.


      I really like the stream and I've been dreaming about actually having a good flow over it for a few years. I think I am gonna take some of your advice and make the two upper ponds into one slightly bigger deeper pond. I would have 2 filter pits kinda like icu2's setup. I already have power ran down to the lower pond.

      Thanks

      I just hooked up 2in pvc to my submersible pump to see what it would do. I went from about 40 gph ro roughly 2250! The stream looks and sounds amazing with that higher flow rate. I'll post a link to a video tomorrow.
