Gallery home : OUR PONDS : MAIN POND

This pond is now 10 years old and has given us no problems at all. On retirement I decided to design a pond with unique features. The outcome has pretty much met my brief and little has been changed since the 80,000litres or so was pumped in and the pumps started up. You may notice there are two levels. The returning water from the filters via 3 x 100mm bottom drains and 2 x skimmer boxes is delivered to a 10,000 litre grow on pond. It then drops to the main pond via the waterfall. The pond is also finished with a swimming pool liner, glass window in the front was another relatively new concept at the time. filtration is supplied by way of a solids removal chamber with brushes then into 3 x 300 nexus filters (not the home made type!). From there into a 17 sheet map mat chamber. All the water supplied to the filtration is by gravity and pumps deliver from 32k ( in winter) to 48,000l/h in summer back to the ponds. Total system is 100,000litres approximately.
