Renovating a Pond or Lake?
Jump to new posts Re: Deteriorating overflow pipe by JohnR @ 42 minutes 56 seconds ago

Thanks Rainman, I had no idea what a 'coffer dam' was - but do now, thanks to YouTube . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVHV5NVCGOU Building a coffer dam would be an interesting project. Imagine i'd have to drain half the pond or more to get it t

Thanks for the confirmation. It looked to like things were on track, but I still have my training wheels with this pond miestering. Pictures of the gsh a year ago look about the size of the small fhm in the above picture. They should spawn this year,

How deep is your pond, and how deep is your deep diffuser? You can run aeration during the heat of summer if you are able to maintain a thermocline, where cooler, less oxygenated water exists. They cant live there, but they can escape the heat tempor

A LMB can eat anything up to 1/3 its length. So a 6 inch bass will target prey up to 2 inches long. As they get bigger, so does their food requirements. A 12 inch bass is going to seek out the biggest prey it thinks it can swallow. You could introd

Looks like I was pre-mature in my judgement. Used a small beatle spin and caught several bluegills about 7-8" and several small bass. Lost one bass that looked like a two pounder when he threw the little hook. Caught a couple that were around

Thanks. The old pond on the property is very old and has 100 ft trees growing on the dam slope some of them dead. The overflow pipe buried in the dam is corroded and shortened by several feet. The trees will have to come out to restore the dam int

I have no experience with this feeder, however I've tried multiple feeder manufacturers and my original TH continues to run without fail going on season 10. I've purchased or been gifted 5 other feeders during that time for half the cost of a TH uni

Systems questions
Jump to new posts Re: Aeration questions by blkandst @ Yesterday at 03:36 PM

I figured out my pond is about 5,186,160 gallons. 3 regular vertex diffusers will give me almost that (8ft average) in a 24 hour period. So 6 diffusers should put me turning my pond over twice in a 24 hour period. Is my pump enough to handle that?

Hey quarter acre. Would a gast 1022 be good enough for his pond? I just purchased a gast 1022 3/4 horse and my ponds a tad bigger than his. Looking to see if it would work. Thanks

I compost our FA and also use it "green" after it has dried a couple days on the pond shore as mulch/weed barrier straight into the garden.
