Charlyon27: DO NOT build this filter as you will always be taking the sponges out to clean them. You need a vortex first then a top down filter with something like K1 media that can be back flushed with an air line and air stone to clean it. EA do some great filters
MrEye4get: Well done! The pump sponge will definitely get dirty often. It is the first filter in the system closest to the source.
tim taylor: Instead of a basket I used a flower pot and drilled a lot of holes in it, the pot supports the weight of gravel I put in
enrrique alcaino: Hey Brotha ,excellent Idea now need to know what side of the white pimping you did use ? also the black connectors what are they will appreciate if you can answer my question keep the good work
Mundo Dante: It's working HURRAY Ohh not so good LOL
Diana Sauer: Great! Thank you this is helping :)
Tommy Chappell: I like. Your home made filter, but I can't find inlet and outlet pipe. any where. Can you tell me where I can get to it
Sisha Gonsior: Biofilters are used to breed aerobic bacteria which needs oxygen, without oxygen it will work but not nearly as efficiently and you will have to clean it much more often. I built my biofilter 5 years ago, same as yours but with a cone at the top that spins air down at the same time as the water. My pond is 10,000 litres and the filter is the same size as yours, I haven't had to clean the muck from the bottom coz the bacteria eats it all. The top gets a layer of green which I have a top drain pipe going to the garden and once a year I stir it all up, pushing on the scourers till it's gone clear, turn off that tap and it's all done, keeping the pump going. I chucked the little prefilter and put a large one on the pump. Works brilliantly. Thanks to people like you who post how is why I made my own with added tweaks for my situation and not bought one, thanks.
