above ground pond (Louisiana where there are no basements due to
high water table).
DYI 150 gal
filter (floor scrubbing pads media), water falling into a 200
gal bog/weir and then into pond which keeps the water clear and
can carry a very large fish population.
Have a 55 gal drum with cement in bottom
to form a vortex that collects heavy fish waste and leafs
(drains to sump pump and discharges at end of property) before
going to Sequence 1/4 HP 44 gph pump. Bog has a huge drain at
bottom of rocks that will self clean.
Pond was built for convince for my wife
due to work taking me away from home. Scott Hadley Gibson, La."
