I don't think waterfall foam is water proof either, it is just denser. I have used it, bought a ton of cans off ebay, it was not water proof, still seeps water, but is denser than the gap filler you can buy at home depot. It does come black colored which fades as it sits out in the sun, to whitish.Sounds ok like I should use Waterfall Foam if I need waterproof, but can use regular stuff for other areas.
Awesome, just let me know how much I owe you. I'll PM you my address. Maybe since I've already got a higher flow pump & fish, mine will start clearing this year. lolI am going to be pulling today, boxing tomorrow, most likely, then done for the year. My pond started really clearing up once the plants got growing. The first summer no fish, no plants except a few tiny ones, low flow pump it was murky. The second year, good pump, plants, fish, clear water that has been clear since.
Thank you. Haven't had a chance to get any more stone or rocks, so it still looks the same.Great build and Thank you for the sequence of photo's to explain each step. I love his DIY project. Has it improved the water clarity any yet? How do you plan on back flushing the lines when needed?
Thanks. I'm hoping that I'll be able to see the bottom this summer once the plants get a growing.I had gotten some Marsh betomy from a friend here locally and it was rather invasive.. I ended up getting rid of it because it was forcing water out of the waterfall and into the ground. Your bog will do great the first year. You did a great job with that!!
