I'm thinking about connecting an airlift pump from my pond to a planter that has a bottom draining hole. Then connect a hose to the bottom drain to go back to the pond. Has anyone tried anything like this or know of anyone that has done this successfully. The planter is shaped Iike a sideways half wine barrel with legs to hold it up. I also though about connecting the hose form theair lift pump to the bottom drain and getting a spigot from lowes and install it on the side for the return. Any thoughts or comments?
