      The main issue i have now is that my rectangular pond doesn’t have a bottom drain if anything, the next major change down the road is going to be a reverse bottom drain.... but that’s more down the road.

      Retrofit drain. Zach makes a 3 inch retrofit drain . I would get that and a zakki sieve and a descent pump and go from there. Your setup wont support what you want in the long run and you will just keep adding bandaids to it

      It is good for now
      Until sometime you feel the right pond is ready then do it right

      My current is the 3rd one and I still not happy with it fully even though I haven’t clean any media for 2 years almost
      Just waterchange the settlement chamber weekly and that is my only maintenance

      Excellent question. Catfish whiskers which one would give clearer effluents? You ceramic media looks awesomely clean!! Can you provide a picture of how you stack your static bed to gravity flow to your shower?

      The S&G filters to around 50 microns , the static bed with plastic K1 style media filters to about 100 microns .
      Not sure about Your stacking question ?
      The QT is an above ground poly tank , and I made a platform that supports the static filter and shower filter above the poly tank .

      Got it thanks!

      How did come upon these estimates (50microns vs 100 microns)?

      On one of Your videos , it looked like You had the finer mesh microscreen before the coarse 600 mesh one .
      If that was the case , it would work better with the coarsest screen first . The 600 should be first , it will catch the biggest stuff that would easily clog the next finer screen . That would make the finer screen last longer before cleanings .

      I can put the 600 micron on top then 400 micron after ward. I’m looking to get a 2 inch pvc pipe connect It to my in pond pump and cut slots on the bottom and have it sweep the pond much cheaper than a reverse bottom drain

      But later... lol

      Wow what a difference it made. Putting the 600 micron on top of the 400 it took it longer to clog the sieve and amazing to see how much was being caught by the 400 micron.

      Glad to see you're making progress. How often do you think you will have to clean the screens?
