Did this video help you?

MA FishGuy: Great video. Good information man Thank you

Janis K: could you please list a parts list for your filter thank you Oh bye the way GREAT JOB

Tom will: very smart and your pond will be great.

Muhammad Fatih: What type is the pump, please??? I mean the model so I could buy it. Thanks in advance!

GOLDfishIT: The intro music tho ! Lol

Yhazhee Torreon Jr: tnx so much ,coz its simple/easy homemade filter..tnx for info...So great...

qwertyuiopo4: soldering iron lol

john falcon costanzo: thanks mate good info,,,lol on the water fall was good too ;o)

Paul Croteau: I made one, just a note, if you have a 1" inlet feed, you need two 2" outlets to avoid the overflow from the can. The stronger your pump, the larger diameter of the outlets you will want.

Joffrey Andrews: hey i built it and its works thanks it work so good i made 2 one for my fish pond and one for my turtle 

Ronald Raub: May be a good idea but explanation too fast and not detailed. Did not show a list of parts needed.

Ron Reid-Taylor: uncut. well done sir. haha

InvincibleRain: Good idea. I may soak sponges n bio-char to see if it sticks and increases efficiency 

7272gorgeous: can you give what size of pipping you used 

Nelos s: Great video. Good information man Thank you

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 it.

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

MultiFishcrazy: niccceeeee

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?

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

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!

John Oplado: I actually used the same exact design on my pond. Works like a charm!!
