Filtering pond

Recommended Posts

About to start building pond. What are the most efficient and low maintenance ways of filtering it?

grow bed under constant flow, maybe flowing over sponge of something first for mech filtration?

DIYing a blue drum? What do people use inside? Layout? Flow up or down?

any advice or pictures will be muchly appreciated.

Iv got a 10000lt pond I use a 10000lt pump up to a 200lt drum full of bio balls that falls from the top and 4 20mm holes out in the bottom water is crystal clear takes a while to get it all seeded but once its away its awesome super easy and super cheap to set up
