Want plans for biofilter for 16'x24' pond

Post by Erik Ki » Mon, 28 Jul 1997 04:00:00



Anyone know where I can find some ideas or plans for
a biofilter large enough to handle 16' x 24' x 4' pond?

 Try http://www.moonsgarden.com/;He's using ***maid
tubs.  I looked at the same thing, and although I'm going to do it in one
tub I used a lot of his ideas.  Bye the Bye DON'T PAY RETAIL!!!!  Retail
they are about $99.  At COSTCO where I got mine I paid $66.97

Just out of curiosity, why do you think you need a biofilter?

Unless you are over stocked with fish, it seems unnecessary.
The bacteria that colonize a 'biofilter' also colonize everything
else in your pond including plants, rocks, liner, sand, etc.

Better to have lots of plants to do the work!

cheers,

Take a look at this web site.&nbsp; It's by a professional water gardner
who specializes in installing large ponds using "veggie" (plant) filters
- arguably the best filtration method for large ponds.
