    At the early stages you can still see what's what and have a play with the set up a bit more. Like the idea of being able to alter the flow to the waterfall.

    Put one in anyway mate. Winter return.
    I have just put one in this winter. A return bypassing my top pond water chute. Waterfall. To keep the wind chill down. Ball valve it as well.
    With us lo mate. We like to help as much as possible.
    But we also like a good laugh and banter.
    As roy quoted. So dont take it wrong way.

    Forgot to add. Regarding the return
    For winter. Have it so you can still run it all year round. As if you shut it down for say 4 to 5 months.
    It ends up being called a dead leg.
    And all kind of bad nasty s can be in there. And when you switch for winter. They will go in the pond.

    What i do is run mine for a few hours at least twice a week

    Cheers Fred. I’ll be putting a ball valve on it so it’ll always have a bit returning to the pond as the waterfall won’t take all the return. I’m putting another return at the other end of the pond as well. Not sure if it’s over kill with 2 lower returns and the waterfall.

    on mine water fall shute . from top pond. the water just falls straight downwards. so it really does not move the water its the returns times two. plus the air from the bottom drain dome that does all the water moving. so as to be sucked in by the bottom drain then to filter to be cleaned. also my skimmer catches a lot as the water moves around, get your returns right. and the pond will look after its self. its all about water movement, I took wind direction into consideration as well for my skimmer. and all these facts dictated where I put my returns.

    thanks again. I’m going to have a good think about it all and then have a chat with my main man that’s helping do all the filters.
