I built a filter last year and ran it off a different pump, but it only
worked for a while. There is a prefilter on the pump, a sponge, but other
than that there is no filtration other than plants. When I do the last
addition this spring, I will be adding another pump, and a weedy stream area
to help filter the water. The sheets are left overs from jobs. I think the
biggest single sheet I ever got was 25' X 25' . The gar pond has a seam
between the two points. To seam it I used that rubber tape with the tar
like stuff on the back, the same stuff they seem the roofs with. Its wider
and better quality than the stuff they sell in catalogs for pond use or at
pond/ garden centers.
