After reading all the filter DIY ideas, have finally decided to make one for my pond, using leftovers from other house projects. Here are the photos, enjoy.

Cool!

Thanks

Very simple sump system! Makes me think of how cheaply you could setup a sump system with a plastic tub and a pump!

Yes, it is not hard at all, and is fun of making one :D

Ha, just to make you even more tempted or jealous, I'm building another one that has gravels and stones and plants on top of it. :D

They are Ceramic Noodles Glass Ring (white in the middle), and BIO BALL (black on the right). The white one on the left is AQUARIUM Filter Pad.

So the water goes from top onto the filter pad, then goes down through bottom gap (can be seen on the first photo), and then up through the glass rings, and then over onto the bio ball from the top, and then leaves back to the pond. Happy DIY :)

It should work fine. Making filters is fun and easy. Getting up nerve enough to build a filter is hard.
