>I Made a Pond Filter
>I started with a plastic waterfall liner for a whiskey barrel bought at Lowes,
and a handful of 1/2″ fittings and PVC.
I drilled a teeny tiny hole (1/16″) in the fitting and angled it toward the bottom of the tank so the water doesn’t squirt out. What the heck is the hole for? It’s to prevent all the water from siphoning out of the filter if the pump quits.
Next I turned on the pump to fill the holding tank.
Really it’s just gauze type material, we just put all that stuff into the tank. I think the more filter media the better it will work. I may cut up some sponges and throw in there also.
DISCLAIMER: I have no idea if this thing works. Don’t try to build it yourself. Don’t mess around with electricity and water. Pay an electrician to do this job. Look both ways before crossing the street. Not responsible for injury and/or death. Your mileage may vary.
I’m just sharing this to tell you how I spent my day.
