      Great job, the pond looks very nice. The divider wall is the key. There are probably many folks who want to do the same thing.

      If you provide details of your footing, the drilled wall dowels, and the block wall rebar pattern you used, your followers may have the same good experience.

      Not true I just want to enjoy a chill Corona and my koi after daywork
      The Moo still has a few big ponds at home and I think Ryan is doing business over FB meantime
      I’m sure he is looking for some location in future

      So I woke up and loose about 5” of water from the pond
      And about 1 cu ft of k2 all over the place
      I drilled more holes on the 3” return pipe and I think test 2 moving bed is okay until tomorrow morning again

      I can add a four way tee and thus more holes should work if needed

      Yes Mitch, you need a lot more area for the water to get into the pipe. The K2 congregates there and prevents the water from getting through. Here are a couple of pictures of how I did mine. This plastic mesh is called 'Gutter Guard' from Lowe's.

      How much water were you flowing through the MB filter? All the pumps?

      Couldn't you run a pipe from the top of the MB to the RDF or MB back to the pond to take care of future overflow situation?

      Thank you guys i use k2 and After drilled more holes it is fine
      I was just lazy and didnt drill all surface area available
      Moving bed is pushing by a Periha 20k which pulls from my 2 skimmers
      I wanted more flow this way and definitely I made the right decision

      I ditched work today and completed my showers
      The pond is running a test phase for a week for tweaking and adjustments but so far so good
      Here is a short vid
