Best thing about more than 1 pump is if one goes out you always have back up .I learned the hard way the first year I had my pond and pump went out and it was a mad rush to find one in a rural area .I have 2 laguna pumps and have back up for them also .2900 gph and 2400gph and best thing is combined wattage use is only around 115 watts because laguna pumps do not use as much wattage as they advertise .The bigger the hose and the cleaner you keep the cage .I can see the usage chart when I signed up to my utility company and registered everything in my house .Took forever to list everything but well worth it .
I didn't think I would find the ground cover, a Garden Supply had some left over from a job.
Put some flowers and plant in yesterday, now just let it grow. What's a good filter thread here to check out?
I found a filter at Lowes, I may get it, and I see my frigs stayed, the turtle looks like he took off. There is a big Pontiac across the street from me.
Back to the filter, any good ones you recommend? Pics would be nice, I'm all new yo this pond thing. Lol
Your rite, I'll have to,space it up, I put 7 frogs in, 1 likes the pond, I don't see any more or the turtle. Lol
It's really for the fall and when my knuckle head lawn guys come by, they blow all the crap in the pond.
I haven't got on them yet for pond , but the shed and garage they like blowing dirt in. But I will, I have a small have a pool skimmer to take just floating junk off the top.
I let too many leaves in in the fall, it was nasty in the spring. I'd like to put some water plants in but what do you do with them in the winter?
