    how do you clean this filter and how often would you need to clean this. Also you mentioned charcoal on top, could you use lava rock or any other type of rock? About what size of pond (gallons) would this filter accomodate. Lastly what size pump are you using. Great job thanks for putting it on.

  7. intoxicatedpirate says:

    Do you have to have that pipe with the holes in? Can you just have a pipe that chucks water into the filter and comes out the outflow?

    pond water is actually very good for your plants, i know you dont want a leak but just letting you know, the pond water is just as good as fertalizer

    Yes they are pool noodles, we got them at the dollar store. We have been happy with them. They provide ample surface area, the porus surface gives the bacteria something to grab onto, and the shape helps to create eddy currents. Just remember that stuff floats. You need something to keep the media from floating out of the box. We know that our bacteria are happy because our Nitrites and Ammonia are consistantly low.

    Do those pool noddles really work as a filter media? Well, i think that’s what you’re using right?
