I think this is to big for your needs. You can get a filter bag and put your pump in it to filter water. HD has filter bags.

Where does the water exit tube go and how big can the tube be?

Asked by Lightsender April 11, 2017

Answers

The pump goes inside the box and pump tube attachment size can vary depending on your pump.

Which model pumps will fit in the box? Can the filters be washed out and reused over and over?

Asked by Bicepeak October 16, 2016
3
Answers

As long as the pump fits in the box it should work. I rinse the filters a 3-5 times then replace them since you can’t get everything out. The filters are only a couple dollars to replace.

Will this keep turtle food out of the pump?

Asked by Gasser July 19, 2016

Answers

Food pellets and other floating debris can stick to the top of the filter box if it is close to the surface of the water. Moving the filter box to deeper water can help you easily avoid this problem.

Does this filter go inside the pond or outside or either?

Asked by MrsR June 7, 2016

The water intake is the top of the box so it needs to be in the water.

Does this hook up to a pump?

Asked by Alissa March 31, 2016
2
Answers

You need a pump to get the water to the top of the waterfall. You don't need a filter, but then you periodically need to clean out the pump and tubing. you put the pump inside the box. There is a lot more than you may think to making your own water feature - buy a book or Google how to do it yourself.

Can this filter system be used in a small pond

Asked by Fay December 5, 2015
1
Answer

This particular filter box does not have a pump, pump is sold separated. In this situation it would be best to purchase a pump that can be run outside (inline) of the pond.

Is there a Gallon per hour limit?

It all depends on the pump size.

The box would not stay down in the water. Had to put rocks in the bottom. Bout another one of these years ago and the pump in it was big enough and heavy enough, I never had any problems with it. In fact it is still working.

Response from TotalPond TeamNov 11, 2020
Hello Kathy. We thank you for your feedback! This is not a known issue with our filter box. However, we do recommend if it does happen to place heavy stones inside to hold it down. We hope this helps you.

No pump is safe from clogs and sludge build up unless it’s inside a filter box. I’ve tried to finagle ways around it, but debris would still wreak havoc on my expensive pond pumps. This filter box clips closed tightly and I’m worry free.
