Dheeraj NP: For better effect - Hide your pump using some rocks or Keep the pump at
other end hidden.
John Harris: Go for it, Chet.
Colleen Gill: Thank you SO much for this instructional video. You showed every step
clearly & also showed all the items I need to purchase to connect pump to
big frank: Where do I get some waterfall sealant?
Erwin Fekete: save yourself some money and buy a solar kit.
mediatrainer1: Rather than the two piece plumbing fittings I used a plastic one inch
through - hull boat fitting. Worked like a charm, no leaks and no need to
join pieces together. Available online or at any marine store for about 5
bucks. Thanks John, saved me 200 dollars and it looks fabulous.
Chet Day: Buying a bulkhead would of saved all that time and energy
PR0CRASTINAT0R: Cool video! (5 - STARS!) Thanks for posting it! I help run a free Pond
share website. It would be great to have some more pond people join in and
share their pictures,videos, and stories. OldGardenPond,com (If you copy
and paste the above address, please change all commas to dots. Youtube will
not let me put dots, so I put commas in the website address)
John Harris: I'm glad the video was helpful. I can't believe 341,225 have watched! Enjoy
your day! :)
Raj Purba: Thank you this video information was incredible I am building a Kio pond
this summer as my project and have two ponds. I gained some valuable
information from you thank you for your time and good work.
shane stoneham: seems you have the mechanical portion worked out but aesthetically speaking
its not very pleasing. I would put the pump to the right of the waterfall
in its own little area hiding it with some sort of water plant. then after
the pump house is in place and screened for debris with an easily removed
filter trap fish guard you could do whatever you liked to the pond itself,
sand and rocks like the one you used on your spillway. Overall I like your
idea just need to follow through with aesthetics
robert casey: Thank you knew someone out there other than me was thinking they could buid
a waterfall. The prices they charge are crazy. Thanks again.
Dan Eskelson: Great how-to video! Especially for smaller water features. Thanks for your
very concise directions.
John Harris: @kingjeffishere Beckett (Model W1150) 1100 gph pump for waterfall
rednyr2003: great video...appreciate your ingenuity! There was no way I was spending
the crazy bucks on a weir and now I don't have to! nice job....
pchemist: @TheBoaConstrictor95 Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. You can use a
siphon to move water, but only if the destination is lower than the origin.
It wouldn't work for a waterfall unless you have an anti-gravity device.
John Harris: @MIKExDAxSTOPPA26 Beckett (Model W1150)
leshka6: where can you get the stones used on the water fall??
0klimok: You are the man! this is exactly what I was looking for! God bless!
guitarfreak521: Cool! Thank you!
John Harris: Actually, I purchased the pump before I came up with the idea. I had to fit
the parts around the pump. I pretty much decided on this pump because the
guy at the pond store told me it would work for the size of the pond I was
zropaws22: @jmoney775 vid please!!!
John Harris: @redfiresvt Beckett W1800. Check Ebay.
menro1: Great to see people being so creative!!
gigman7: Nice work on the falls but you really should consider using a bottom drain.
That is what I use in all of the ones I build and you can't see any
plumbing. Keep up the good work.
chucky902: thanks alot ,i'll try it an see how it go's
Tom Cat Lyons: Good job man. Works for me. goin to lowe's tomorrow an get me one of those
boxes. Thanks for the great idea.
Jamie Grine: Gee, you post videos to try to help people out and all they can do is B I T
C H. If you don't like the idea, don't watch it. I'm a newbie at this whole
pond thing and had no idea on the waterfall part and this was one of the
most informative videos I've seen. I think the pond is beautiful, better
than most others I've seen from people who have used junk from their trash
to build a waterfalls and bio filters.
Henry rohenwiri: Hello, my name is Henry and I'm from Venezuela, live in an apartment and
want to do something similar in my living room but I have only one square
meter or so, you can give me an idea to make a small, thanks.
SuperFLYcrf: I'm in the process of building a pond/stream in my yard and am working on
the waterfall right now. Thank you, this is good information. I know
oppinions are like @%^#$ but, if I may... I really like everything... but
was thinking the steel retainer nut might rust fairly quick and I'm pretty
sure they make PVC retainer nuts. Anyway, just a thought. Thanks again, I
wasn't sure how I was going to do mine and now I do.
Larry Fenwick: Neat idea!! I'm gonna use it. Thanks!
djvdwolf: @djvdwolf my pond cost just about with pumps foil and stones included 20
euro. because i also got the foil to make 2 pond and a stream the foil it
self was 3x3 and my pond would have been bigger but i had to share the foil
with a family member eventually i needed a 1m2 extra for a entry way with i
can finish now so thanks u again (now i am answering a post of my own but
forgot to add this :P)
ww2dynamite: Interesting video. Thank You. I also have a DIY Garden Pond video on my
John Harris: Thank you for giving it a try!
Paul Blundell: I am from the uk and I can not find one of the no5 storgage bins anywhere
nightstalkerrc: you can buy aquarium sealent at just about any hardware store or pet shop.
janie kirby: where did you find the lock nut, the only thing i cant find
Tom Cat Lyons: There's always got to be some self appointed expert that criticizes
something cool. Why? Because his parents were a couple nice guys. Shut uuup!
John Harris: The flat piece of flagstone was purchased at a landscaping store for a few
dollars. The rest was found in the desert for free.
JourneyTotheTruthandTotalRandomness: That's the problem though. You're not helping anyone out by making crapty
videos. And hell, I posted this over a month ago and now you respond..LOL!
Muhammed4ever: Peace be upon you well done Thank you so much
wickedstuff000: it will look a lot betta if their was green grass arowned it
MrWaterfalls: the milk crate is an eye sore it could have been hidden much better
JourneyTotheTruthandTotalRandomness: I would have at least went the extra mile and built a skimmer box for it.
But quite frankly, you could have bought a kit for under 500.00. Not sure
what you spent 500.00 on? The stone is easy to acquire, people getting rid
of stone for free all the time. The liner and underlayment is around
150.00. The pump for that size pond, you'd only need a 100gph pump so maybe
80.00 at the most. Yet, a kit comes with all that plus lighting and is more
durable than the material you used. Looks like crap!
bubber25: cool video im thinking about starting an outdoor pond in my backyard. so
what do you do in the cold cold winter months? does it kill all your fish?
what do you do?
kittycatse7en: what power of pump would you recommend for a 35 gallon pond?
sunkingarden: Thank You. Been working on putting in a waterfall for a long time. But just
could not get it the way I wanted it. Love this I'm going shopping tomorro.
MrTaz345: Cant find these at lowes what size? looks nice.
