    fitting straight flange tank connector into raised block pond

    i'm in middle of building a semi raised pond using 7N concrete blocks + liner
    block works all done put im going to fit 2 1 1/2" returns to the pond

    i just have couple questions do i fit the returns flush to the block work? just as you do with fibreglass and block construction
    and one more thing should i have gone with 2inch returns?

    return size depends on pond and pump size...

    as for the pipework you need to finish with a flush flange to connect the liner like this.
    plus whatever insulation, if you are using any i used 50mm celotex type.

    the pond size is 9ftx6ftx5ft deep and im not using any celotex im just using box welded pond liner + 150g underlay
    and as for pump im using a Varibale speed Aqua Eco 10,000 + a EazyPod

    agreed...
    i know EA make some good filters...nexus 320 Et al.
    but i'm not a fan of an easy pod as the sole means of mechanical and biological filtration...
    it only has18 litres of K1 micro...
