I am in the process of getting a pond. I will probably get a pre-formed
pond with 1oo gal capacity (not exactly big). I will also build a
waterfall for the pond. I have been reading and looking at pumps and
filters. Any comments on the PondMaster product line? The model I am
looking look like a shallow rectangular "pan" with handles. It comes with
a magnetic drive pump and has a rated filtering capacity of up to 300
gallons. The pump it comes with is rated at 325 gpm. I have also looked
at the Beckett bio filter which comes with the pump. This one looks like
a shoe box type size. Any comments on the above or any other suggestions
I like the concept of the magnetic drive, due to less moving parts and
suppossed lower electricity draw. PondMaster also has a bigger model and
I think the pump is rated at 500 gpm, would this one be an over kill or
wise? In other words, is more (higher capacity) filtering better?
Thanks for helping this complete newbie in ponds
If we can't control it, let's not worry about it.
