Hello all -

am planning to build a koi pond (14 ft x 14 ft) with a separate veggie filter designed as a waterfall / steam flowing into the pond (4 ft x 20 ft). Any design ideas / diagrams / pictures on how to build one that’s easy to back wash in case needed?

thanks,

@Nw koi
Lots here use bogs for filters and can help you. I'm sorry I did not attach one to my pond long ago.

Welcome @Nw koi ! Enter "bog" into the search bar on this forum and you'll find a wealth of information. There's a pinned post that @addy1 did on bog building - that's a great one to start with.

@j.w ; any chance you'll be adding a bog to yours in the future? Just curious!
Nope, no room for one the way I built it but really I suppose I could but it would be too much changing around of everything so no way. Maybe if we ever move to a new place. I did not know about bogs when I built it, sad to say!

I'm guessing when you say veggie filter, you mean your going to plant veggies in a bog filter.
That's great!
Like many here, I was inspired by addy's successful bog.
Here's my bog build:
