I need to finish up the waterfall before I decide for certain, but probably about 5-6k gph headed up to the bog.What's the total gph
I haven't bought them yet, but I will probably get several different sized perhias. They're on the high end of cheap pumps, and they're some of the most efficient pumps you can find in USA in terms of gph/watt. They're adjustable flow, so I will buy several different sizes based on needs for different parts of system and see how they do. Once I get flows dialed in I will probably replace them with higher end pumps when/if they crap out.How many watts is the pump you bought and by whom.
I'll definitely do a video walkthrough once I have the pumps set up.ou got to do a video of your plumbing and gph to where .
If your doing that why not make a extra stream/ waterfall in the bog that's 3 feet high and surround it with plants but you'll see the water between them that could be very coolPump #1: 6,000 gph via 3" line to bog. Split 3k to bottom of bog, dump other 3k on top for 6k gph waterfall
What he said. lolno, you haven't missed it but that'll be another 50 pages of comment/reply + months of research...
Do you mean 3' wide? Like build up the bog gravel to create a stream running through it? I like that idea. Thinking of starting it with a bubbling rock or urn or something. Probably a rock to keep it natural looking.If your doing that why not make a extra stream/ waterfall in the bog that's 3 feet high and surround it with plants but you'll see the water between them that could be very cool
Think I'm just going to have to test them and see what I get. Thinking I'll just puy a bunch of reducer fittings and see how placement on different jets affects the balance of flow.I'm sure you have researched the return jet heads which as you using.?
Ah, ok. Well... no. LOLNòooooooooo I mean 3 foot high.
there's a diffuser that's open on the back side that pulls water in as it is pushing water out giving you more flow for less energy I'm trying to find them
thing is, is it necessary? Seems like a lot of work that might end up with issues (like melting a hole somehow) for nothing. If you have overlaps that are proper, the water should not wick. Just a thought.Been working on the waterfall between rain storms.
Decided it would t hurt to seam my liner overlaps andDid some heat welding practice runs in the garage this morning. It’s kind of tricky to get the temp and speed setting right, but I think I have it figured out. Going to be significantly harder to do in the field w/ all the folds and stuff in the way vs. clean, straight runs in the garage, but will do some more practice before doing it in the field.

That said, when I expanded I made the bog and pond one liner, so I totally understand...

be careful with the silicone (as I've been finding out) because it doesn't always stick to some plastics. That is, it WILL stick initially but I've found it is peeling off really easily (working with pvc; not sure how the epdm/hdrpe will do).I think it’s probably not necessary, but I have some waterfall ideas that have materialized as I work that will shrink the elevation change between the liners. No standing pools, but some cascading falls that are pretty small.
I could also just silicone the crap out of it and that would likely also be more than enough.
Silicone being a generic term in this sense. The stuff I'd actually use is PL-30. I'll do a test seam with it and see how it holds. I think Addy has used it extensively with her rpe liners.
don't worry, GPF has a special room right down the hall for those that tempt fate...I won't tell you what it's called...Silicone being a generic term in this sense.

Did the unthinkable today and started cutting the liner again!
That stuff works, but you need to be bone dry, clean , roughed up.The stuff I'd actually use is PL-30
Link missed?That stuff works, but you need to be bone dry, clean , roughed up.
The last fix I used Marine Goop. It sticks like unreal and does not ever peel off. Made to be under water salt and fresh. Very sticky to work with wear gloves or be ready to work on cleaning the hands.
This is a amazon link , the 3m's really work well. Used on a boat to stop a persistent leak around the rub rail. The 5200 if you open use up the tube it does not survive being open for xx time, like weeks. Again wear gloves.
lil bear musta jumped on the keyboard as she was putting it in, Dime; sometimes ya gotta rattle the Boss' cage a bit to get her attention!!!Link missed?
