Best size pipe for duck pond? I used 2 in pvc with pre filter. But it still clogged after a month with saw cuts every 4 inches. I'm thinking of using 4' perforated this time? Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm assuming this is for a bog filter manifold? I used corrugatted 4" NON perforated pipe, the type you get at big box stores in 25' rolls, and cut slits 1/3 the way through with a chain saw every 6" or so. You shouldn't ever clog again.

Too, do NOT pump the pond water from the bottom; raise your pump up 12" and it will make a big difference.
