    Yeh I was surprised when she showed up and really enjoyed the rest but kept thinking in my mind what to do with the other the other pumps odd sized outlet .I could not find a hose to fit the other new pump .But had hoses I was fiddling with and finally got it all to fit the sump pump hose and actually fit over the 1000 gph pump outlet .So now both pumps are going and hopefully tomorrow will figure the rest out .Want to get that filter going .

    can't wait .But I wait until the sun gets to the pond to go out and work on it .Wind has been rather strong here lately and chilly if you stand in the shade with that wind also

    a good way to really aerate your pond and see if that is what is causing your green water is a ball valve on a hose off your pump .if it starts to clear up in 1 or 2 days that is it.Restrict some of the flow of water coming out your ball valve by turning the knob to partially close it off to water flow and that aerates the water .

    I don't mind the green water as it will also help the good muck grow on the liner faster .Water temp is now at 55 degrees
