      Overflow a DIY for Ponds and Aquariums

      Overflow - a DIY for Ponds and Aquarium

      Overflow

      Hello fellow koi keepers! I hope you're all having a good day.
      A step-by-step video on how to DIY an Overflow for Aquariums and Ponds.
      A water magic I shall show you in this DIY Overflow.
      The way it works seems magical to me because honestly I am not articulate enough to explain how it all really works.
      That's reason I describe this DIY Overflow as magical.

      We tear down this DIY Overflow to see the different components that come into completing one.

      And finally we build a whole new unit just so you could see how simple the whole assembly of this DIY Overflow is.









      Here are come screenshots I took from the video build.

      So basically that's a siphon right?
      The risk I took was calculated, but man am I bad at math!

      Example of a siphon once filled can stop and restart.
      The real Batman wears polyester! Don't be fooled by the plastic imposter.

      Will this works (if need be) if the distance has of the overflows has to be longer than a few inches? Like a foot or two? (maybe more)
      Failure is not an option! You just have to try harder the next time around!
