    Question Pumping Water From Stream - Crazy Idea?

    God, actually, just thinking about water changes ... if I got a pump that wasn't up to pulling from the river but could still pump out that height ....

    What's Your Most Useful Non-aquarium Tool (for Aquarium Use)?

    A good point and thank you, though that's not what I'm actually trying to clean - I have a bad habit of walking away and forgetting the tests for a while and after years of use I have a number of tubes with colored residue from the test chemicals inside ... a very small pipe cleaner gets most of...

    Question Pumping Water From Stream - Crazy Idea?

    What do you mean here?? I've heard of priming a pump but don't know what losing prime is? Our streams is clear unless there is serious flooding level rain, it is summer here now, and we don't have snow in winter. There are two consecutive ponds upstream which catch sediment. It would just be a...

    Question Pumping Water From Stream - Crazy Idea?

    I was thinking of having the pump in the bathtub sucking the water up from there? Cause yes it would definitely go bye-byes if it was in the stream! ! And yeah, I agree, I could turn the pump off if there was heavy rain coming, but in the winter how often would that be ... and there would be...

    Question Pumping Water From Stream - Crazy Idea?

    So there's this old cast iron bathtub down the bottom of a paddock where I live, not far from a decent sized stream. It's outside the paddock, but also far enough up from the stream to be above winter flooding ... it has a little ballcock so it must have been a water trough years ago! I've been...

    Starter Pond

    Very interested in this as I'm investigating whether I could make a pond feasible in a spot without electricity as well ...I've seen mention a few times of using different (bigger) batteries with solar panels, etc ... problem is I've never done anything even close to that in my life. Do you know...
