I think that was more of a factor of laziness, ( not wanting to have to glue multiple boards for the arch ) but I do like the gradual curve, thanks!
Most of the big curves on the ramps are not functional.
Place the ramp onto blocks or like your adding a step to the bottom where you step off that lift will make the bridge look like it has more curve then it does

I am fully virtual, so I can be on here all day long!

Just saw it, I like how low profile it is! I am going to ask him what the underwater part of that setup looks like.

nothing more than a open drain pipe secured firmly in the pond and just below the surface

The only problem with those is they can gurgle, whistle or a host of sounds or none at all

wouldn't there have to be some sort of filter chamber to catch leaves?

you could go to a pool supply buy a strainer basket and then buy a piece of pipe big enough the strainer would fit in and reduce the pipe to the size of the drain pipe

I actually have a skimmer for my above ground pool that would work as a surface leaf basket, that could then go down to the pump.

here is the product: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Deluxe-W...3PPJlUu4qKVbufT8GbxoCMJAQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

I could probably just use a rigid pvc pipe to hold it up instead of that bracket.

we have had a warm streak ( from the negatives up to 65 ) and my pond is almost fully deiced, while waiting for it to finish I stuck the gopro in and saw 4 baby's still kickin and all of my big goldfish, happy that they made it through the first part of the winter!

pond lookin a little rough ( I am going through and fixing edging this week, doing as close to the aquascape method as I can get.


Please excuse the leaf and other gunk litter, this part was iced over until a couple days ago so I haven't got the chance to clean it out.
