Hey great work Erik you like the Zapp Pure? have you gone through any lights yet for your UV? Biological filter how often do you need to clean it and does it get rid of the slime that the UV kills? sorry for so many questions, but it's Beautiful. Erik check out our little garden pond it's (Ron & Eydies Rock garden pond) it should be on the right hand side I think it was # 5 or 6 Right now I have no filtration at all n(E-Mail- I could use some advice


This project was done about ten years ago. there have been some great advances in biological filtration and UV sterilization since then. We have been using the Aquabead Alpha One Filters by GC Tek. They are great and really easy to clean out. The frequency of cleaning depends on many factors. For most people, it needs to be cleaned every 4-6 weeks. it takes about 5 minutes and you do not have to get dirty at all. The UV lights usually need to be replaced about once a year. The UV light will not


Thank you. There is a biological filter, an autofill, overflow, and a UV installed. My favorite UV system currently is the Zapp Pure. We have been very happy with their performance.


This yard is absolutely beautiful!!!
