The description of Easy DIY Pond Filter Tutorial

Your “janitor fish” can’t handle the job of cleaning your entire pond? Then here’s something to help it out: a DIY pond filter tutorial.

There’s something so relaxing about ponds: listening to the water gently churning and watching fish swim lazily by. That’s why many people choose to have a backyard pond – no matter what the size is. Garden ponds provide a place to grow aquatic plants and raise decorative fish. If not properly cared for, however, they may become overrun with algae and pond scum. Adding a filter to your pond removes algae and other unwanted organic materials, keeping the water clear. While a variety of commercial filters are available, you can make a DIY pond filter at home.

tip: Clean your barrel so it is safe for fish. Let it soak for a couple of days in clean water.

The Drain
Cut a hole so that your shower drain fits tightly at the bottom of the gallon (the grate part goes on the inside of the barrel). Take each part that needs to go through the barrel and trace them onto the side. Drill some big holes around the opening so you can insert the jigsaw. Then play connect the dots with the holes. Trim the holes bit by bit until they fit perfectly.

This drain must be sealed onto the bucket with the silicone sealant or it will leak. Sealant must be applied along the inside edge. Whenever you seal something like this, make sure to wipe down all the surfaces to be sealed with rubbing alcohol. Don’t be stingy with the sealant — you want it to smoosh all over the place.

Next, insert a cut piece of 2″ PVC pipe into the 2″ shower drain. The 2″ ball valve goes onto that cut piece of pipe. It all must be glued together. Attach it to the barrel.

Pond Return
Cut the hole for the pond return spout the same way the drain one was cut.

While holding the flange in place on the barrel, drill the holes for the 4 bolts. The bolts will make sure that the flange stays pressed against the barrel.

Wipe all the surfaces down with rubbing alcohol. Goop on the sealant and smoosh it into place.

Wipe down all the washers that will be on the front of the barrel with rubbing alcohol. Goop some sealant into the holes and insert the bolts.
