Hello and apologies for posting directly to you started and didn’t want to loose what I have written.
Just building a waterfall feature in the corner of the garden and we have a small-medium disused pond that I will bring back to life.
my questions are many at this point but I am looking for advise on pumps / filters and if I should have separate pumps for waterfall and one for the pond or combine the two, do I keep the area separate or attach the 2 areas via a stream or maybe underground pipe to circulate the water.

Front of the waterfall area will have a small 1.5 l x0.5 w 0.4 h mete pond just for waterfall or attached to main pond? Total height is approximately 1.5m top of waterfall.
Any advice or ideas would be welcomed
Thanks in advance

I like Laguna submerible pumps myself and it's nice to have 2 in case one has issues. I have one hooked up to a pre-filter that goes to the waterfall and one hooked to another pre-filter that just has a flow tube back into the pond that spins a ball. Oh I do have a smaller one that goes to my pot edge filter also.
