Ronald Raub: May be a good idea but explanation too fast and not detailed. Did not show
a list of parts needed.
wafflethug: those sponges should have been rinsed first. Plus I think they'll dissolve
after a while
Kapulfilms: i get everything from bunnings
a3v03v0: I would have skipped the gravel in the bottom. It collects solids that
might other wise end up in the filter. Makes the pond harder to clean. The
bottom of the pond will soon be covered with algae and look natural without
Thong Le: I love you man! U save me 100 bucks!
adairsr53: I'm making this bio-filter,thanxs for the idea. I would like to hide this
bio-filter some where around my waterfall is this possible or shouldi just
use the bio-filter as another difusser or spillway
Setneuf Fuentes: Philippines
kIMO kmais: wat is that black cord call the one that suck in water
joker66599: I made it today but I need another overflow/outlet my pump is to fast and
starts to over flow the trash can. Going back to home depot tomorrow. than
you for all the help.
wardy mann: great job .
Kapulfilms: no probs, thanks
dresden sixseven: on the rock water fall. Thanks again
pippaknuckle: Interesting design. I was wondering if the vortex effect did work and did
it help keep the muck at the bottom for draining. I reckon it would need a
powerful pump like yours to achieve that. Maybe a slower moving pump would
let the solids stay at the bottom just through the weight. The tap to drain
the bottom is a really nice innovation. Thanks.
Katherine Smith: Thanks for this great video you're the ONLY person I've seen that actually
shows the waterpump they're using, none of the other videos do which I
think is stupid because obviously I need to know what the pump looks like
to duplicate their setup!
Kapulfilms: yep, thanks, thats the only way i can keep the hobby alive
ohkfilms: he said on the video, he would install a drain to get all the muck that
builds up at the bottom of the filter. And you dont want to clean a bio
filter to sparkling clean otherwise you'd have to start over again in
building a good bio life thing bla blaasssfagfaljdflafjldsjaa
adam watson: Love how you use dead cheap stuff not expensive filters or pumps
Richard Habicher: This must be from Australia a good place for all waterworks!
Kapulfilms: find barrels anywher, i got mine from bunnings PVS is 25mm
Dieseljonnyboy: Nice work, good on yah for sharing.
Amanda Borgeson: i must ask, what do you call those 'fittings' that you use for pvc pipes
but attched to the basin/bucket? without the water leaking through the hole?
bighatstephens: hi! if your bulkhead fitting start to leak you might want to look into
getting some uniseals. How has this filter worked out for you?
Ing Oscar Manuel De Luna Carpio: que porquería
kheroot: I am going to build a koi pond and I think i'll use this design, I am going
to put a bridge over it and the bridge would cover this up just fine! The
only difference is I think I'll use a solar panel to run it. I subbed
because of this video, now I'll watch you're others, thanks for the post!
Jack Belton: Can the garbage can be under ground but just high enough for the overflow
pipe to pour into the pond?
jcainaz01: I like the idea of the scouring pads as a biofilter. I have a pump
submerged in gravel (search Pond filter - no algae bloom (turtle makes two
appearances) in YouTube. The output goes up into a series of little ponds
with Water Hyacinth. This works pretty well except that I have to vacuum
the gravel periodically. I'd like to build an above-water filter but need
to figure out how to keep newborn fish from being sucked in.
tOnyyz1: Hey thats pretty good :) but i reckon you should use wool as well and put
some carbon in there
Kapulfilms: @betomty84 5000 lt per hour pump was used
acer0169: I made one of these out of a 45gal water butt. Using 1" pipe, 10 packets of
rough pads and 10 large bits of foam. Then topped off with filter media
stones. PLEASE NOTE that with large drums, you need to hold everything down
when the water raises up. Otherwise the buoyancy will lift everything right
up and clog the pipes. I have 6 house bricks holding down mine - you
wouldn't believe how much pressure the buoyancy makes.
Kushan Perera: can someone please give me a parts list because i am very new to this pond
scene and don't really know much thank you
Brian Murphy: What size pond does this filter work for?
MelissiaAnn33: Hey There my frioend could you tell me a little about the fittings and the
pipe like what size pipe we would need and what types of fittings and what
size they need to be Please I would greatly appreciate the help Melissia Ann
Kapulfilms: they are just bins. In my set up i pump to the filter, then to my trout
tank and then into my aquaponics garden then into my pond. checkout
aquaponicgardener (dot) com (dot)au for more info. my other videos show my
latest set up.
MotionTSG: Warning! Those who are planning on utilizing this method be extremely
careful with your sponge selection. Most household sponges are treated with
antibacterial solutions to inhibit mold growth. Although they well may
filter the water of detritus, the beneficial microbe growth will be
extremely if not completely hindered.
LishaoQin1: Consider the flow capacity of the pump ... I think the pvc pipe from 3/4
"is enough for a flow of up to 4000 liters / hour or more ... Sailing the
amount of gallons of your pond.
Phil Waud: If the pipe enters the drum at the top, then the pressure on the fittings
is lower and you wont get as many leaks, you can even avoid them completely
by having the pipe going into the container above the water line. The water
need to start at the bottom of the drum and leave at the top so that
gravity helps keep any debris at the beginning. As for the contribution
made by the swirl or vortex, I haven't experimented but it seems to make
sense to have one!
drydjinn100: I actually used the same exact design on my pond. Works like a charm!!
Kapulfilms: thats right it took a while for me to digure that out.

Kapulfilms: great. thats what its all about. but if you feel it- just send me a $1
zib52zib52zib52: Your Outlet Pipe or Pipes always need to be twice the diameter of the
Inlet,then it wont overflow
rik680: Thanks for sharing , Excellent idea !!
Kapulfilms: i also found that out later after making the vid. Just put a one way valve
in the pvc pipe so water cannot travel back into the pond.
firefox51: made one over the weekend,works like a gem and the water is crystal clear
after running it for 2 days. thanks
Glen Pritchard: Better install supplementary electricity, otherwise the pump won't run on a
TheMakaSpaka: Great clip mate Thanx , I just moved into a place with a good size pond & 5
Koi & the same pump U have in your clip I was wondering how I could design
a pump keep the fish in good health with out spending a packet. Thanx I
will copy your design
Kapulfilms: @kheroot no problem, always happy to share my knowledge. Good luck with
dresden sixseven: I did not notice the bricks you used to way down the sponges, I will put
them in tomorrow, I followed your directions and my local hardware store
sales person was kind enough to get me the material that I would need , he
must have thought me “far out” walking in the store with a rough sketch of
you’re design. He tried to sell me a little filter, sorry buddy I have a
pound not an aquarium...the water began to clear up in less then an hour, I
will let it filter for a few days then let the water
pigeonsontraining: You're a fanny builder, make me laugh with your video but in the other hand
is a very interesting one thanks man
