Thanks lisa. the bog is doing it's thing very pleased thus far now i just need to work on the bog plants and landscaping . Yes it is all planted but now it's more this works this doesn't and this will come back that didn't and make mass plantings . not the 1000 varieties i have now. but it i still not to tuff to look at .
The water level on the barrel is flowing about 1/2 of the 2" return line to about 4" above my bog that is my middle level of the system.Does your barrel usually have a higher water level ?
Nevermore - The main pond is the lower one and is 7'w and close to 5' deep. There is a bottom drain and a Skimmer both with 2" valves before the Sequence Series 750 Model 4200SEQ12 pump. This feeds the 6'x12' bog with 12" of pea gravel at the mid level and another 7' pond on the top level. The top pond has 12" of pea gravel and 27" of water, this pond is planted with water lilly and hopefully does well with the under gravel feed from the lower pond. I added the S&G filter to hopefully clear the water more so I can see the bottom of the lower pond from my deck above. See my pond build thread for pictures of the pondNice. You’ve a more complex pond system... so can you go over your plumbing? If I ever upgrade to a above ground pump I wanna know how you are running things.
