Since I've never done one before, I'll let the experts answer! I do know that Mark The Pond Advisor said he is doing an intake bay video coming out on YouTube - maybe next week? I can't wait to see it! I have so much to learn! Your pond is very pretty! That is a giant fish!

I wonder if something like this can be made a little simpler and done DIY - kind of like the PVC bog manifold vs. a repurchased centipede - maybe? I was watching the Pond Advisor (I will see if I can figure out how to attach a link to the video) and the one he did for this small pond looked simple. But he didn't get into a lot of the mechanics. If I had a wall separating the main pond from the intake bay "chamber," could I just put my submersible pump below a unit of aqua blocks, then cover the block unit with screen and then marble sized gravel? Cord could sneak out somewhere and same with the piping? Possible? I'm trying to keep the cost as low as possible and avoid buying all the specialized equipment this go round. But that may not be doable. I need to do some more research.
One thing I do wonder -- is it easier to NOT notice when the pond level drops too low? It's very obvious with the skimmer unit, but seems harder to see with the intake bay.
Hello Here are a few videos I have made regarding my pond build take a look and let me know what you think. It would be nice if you can advise me on the intake bay idea I am playing with thanks.
