I have learned a lot on this forum and noticed folks here have very different ideas about maintaining a pond which is good
because it gives members many options .Like i said in a previous post i will vacuum the bottom without removing any water.
As far as cleaning the pumps i can get into the pond and do it.Thanks for all of your ideas.
The other great thing about this forum is no one cares what any one else does. As long as ideas are shared with the attitude of "this is what works for me" people are happy to listen, learn and take it or leave it.

Best forum on the internet!

you don't have to get in; tie a rope to it and you can just haul it up, clean, lower it back. That's what I do.

I am really going to do what sissy did. That sounds like a good idea.

I also wanted to circulate the water at the bottom of the pond, but instead just got an aerator and put the air stone on the bottom. It causes enough water movement to move any debris.

in showcase it is sissys pond . I have the best luck with my water movement for my pond using extra water from my pond pumps . Only thing is the leaves which manage to get around the pond window screen covers and the maple tree helicopters

What does the pvc pipe look like?
White pipe I just drill holes in and add fittings that have screw adapters and use pieces and parts of old pumps to make the spitters . I am afraid I think to much out side the box . I had lots of abs pipes and pvc pipes left over when the house was built and the people from the modular home place just left them inside the house and i put them in the basement for later use .
