How to build a homemade DIY Pre-Filter for a Pond Bio-Filter

Hi Everyone,

This post details my latest design for a pond pump pre-filter unit.

The contraption you see in this picture is my own version of a pre-filter which can be used with your pond filtering setup to pre filter the pond water before it passes into your bio-filter.

This is constructed fairly easily from fittings available at any good plumbing DIY store.

It is very easy to clean out for quick regular maintenance, and I designed it after becoming totally fed up with other more fiddly commercially manufactured pre-filter units.

I have been using this for several months now and I find it helps in the overall success and maintenance of my home made Skippy style of pond bio-filter.

You will find plenty of details on how to construct this pre-filter and loads of pictures, and full instructions for a cleaning regime.

Just go to the following page on my web site: How to Build a Homemade DIY Pre-Filter for a Bio-Filter.
