    Filter's been working great, been cleaning it regularly the last few weeks,
    and I think the bottom cracked yesterday.

    I did see some water trough/storage things at the local farm supply store
    when I picked up fish food last..I didn't see any with lids though. Might
    stop by, and see if I can find one with a lid. Otherwise looks like I'll
    have to find a online source for replacement.

    Knew things were going too good to last.. ..

  3. Bummer!

    May the replacement work. Any chance to put in a liner? Or an in-
    ground veggie filter?

    The ground here is 50% rocks, and digging is a real chore. Plus, it's pretty
    late in the season to try to get a veggie filter here going. All the stores
    around here are just about out of pond plants anyway.

    I need to tear it down, and see what exactly happened anyway.

    Since I lost about 1/3rd of the pond water yesterday, topping it off cleared
    it up a little more temporarily.

    I talked to several car wash operators/owners before I found the
    source of their car wash soap vendor, who sells a few used 55 gallon
    plastic barrels that he can't reuse. I just bought two for $10. They
    required a bit of cleaning, but the car wash soap residue in one
    worked well on the barrels as well as cars.
