Matala - is it durable? by [email protected]
I'm looking for a more durable material for my pond filter. I've recently upgraded to a 60 gallon barrel. On the previous filter I used a 19" floor buffer pad as a solids filter with very good results. The 60 gallon barrel has a larger diameter, so I'm looking for something with a similar...
