Default Pond Filter help needed


Hi,
I want to buy a pond filter but before I go shopping I like to
knowledge myself of what is required before a salesman may sell me down
the river with lots of unecessary expense etc.

I've been browsing the shop websites and ebay but I'm getting confused,
it seems some, if not all, filters require a pump to be purchased
seperately but is this the case with all or just some filters.

I don't have a very big pond thus I don't feel it necessary to but an
all singing and all dancing filter etc. and just when I though that the
'Hozelock Ecopower 2200 Pond Filter' might be ideal for me I got the
impression that I would need to buy a pump also.

Might someone kindly be able to advise me if the Hozelock (above) does
need a seperate pump, do all inexpensive filters need a seperate pump
or does anyone know of a modestly priced filter with pump incorporated
that they might recommend to me.

As I say, I've got myself confused thus any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Martin

If you spend some time in here, you'll find that you probably can make your
own filter for a fraction of the cost of a commercial filter. Important
things to know are the pond size, number fish, and type of fish.

Default Pond Filter help needed


Thanks,
I found the solution to my problem.

Because I only have a modestly sized pond I didn't want the area
cluttered with more equipment than there is pond.

Today I bought and installed a Hozelock Easyclear 2000, an all in one
filter, pump & fountain, ideal for what I wanted.

Recommended price is somewhere around 160.00 but I paid 72.95 via
ebay with Kettering Koi & Ponds and drove the 10 miles e/w to Kettering
to collect and pay for it earlier today.

Thanks

I was pulling your leg :-)
I have to confess I've never been there (me being in Scotland), I meant the
company http://www.ketteringkoi.com/ who I have used a lot.

Their prices are as good as their service (next day delivery etc).
I'm not connected in anyway, just a very satisfied customer.

IIRC you're doing a pond this year, Gill ?
If so, take a look.

Peter
