Hi all,

Looking to add a bog filter to my pond. Currently I’m filtering everything through and intake an a waterfall. I’m hoping to put a pump(purchased a Aquascape AquaForce 5200 Pump) in my pond and pump water out of the pond up to the bog. The bog will filter and water will flow down a waterfall back into the pond.

The only worry is string algae and other things going through my pump and causing issues. Is there anything besides a mesh bag around the pump you would do to help prevent this from happening? Current pond pics below.

Wow your pond is great and looks like it has no liner. I know it does as I saw your building of it. Swim w/the fish! How fun for everyone!
