Cody Hicks: I had an idea before I watched this video, while I was in Home Depot, I bought a 4" conduit pic pipe curved, and drilled holes along the top, caped the ends, and centered the hose adapter to the back side.. I haven't tried it yet, but I hope it works well..the filtration you rigged for the pump was a very good idea.. Thanks
dperry428: John It's nice to see videos like this that show people how to do things cheaply. Not everyone can afford the commercial equivalents of what you've made here. Thank you for helping regular people enjoy the pond hobby. Just a note from experience, especially for those who live in southern climes. When making a pond, do not use the corrugated flexible pipe (tubing) underground. Insects, particularly termites, will burrow through it, making tiny pinholes in the tubing. If you have this type tubing and experience water loss and can't figure out where the loss is occurring, look for it to be underground in those termite-caused pinholes.
Lisa Clark: I have a preformed koi pond which is not really large. I was wondering if I could make a spill box with a hose that was smaller and still get a similar effect? Right now I have a fountain that has a half-inch hose but would love to have waterfall. Just wasn't sure if I could use smaller hoses or not.
thewholeword istrue: If you have a skimmer you can hide your pump in it.
Dheeraj NP: For better effect - Hide your pump using some rocks or Keep the pump at other end hidden.
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.
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 waterfall.
big frank: Where do I get some waterfall sealant?
Erwin F: save yourself some money and buy a solar kit.
John Harris: Go for it, Chet.
Chet Day: Buying a bulkhead would of saved all that time and energy
ww2dynamite: Interesting video, thanks. I made my own garden pond. You can see it on my channel.
David Alin: Great job coach
Julie Price: Clever idea . Thanks , just goes to show what you can do with a bit of know how .
Kpoplover: what power of pump would you recommend for a 35 gallon pond?
poetsmantra: Wrong. 343,402 people have watched.
Muhammed4ever: Peace be upon you
Thank you so much
John Harris: I'm glad the video was helpful. I can't believe 341,225 have watched! Enjoy your day! :)
DrShankenstein: I appreciate you making this video. It's was REALLY helpful ! Thank you !
Brad Warren: I ended up combining this idea with a aeration/filtration system. Basically I stacked three of these high with the first 2 with holes in the bottom. Filled all three with lava rock with the pump water coming in at the top. Love the calming sound of the waterfall. cheers
