The question comes up from time to time, and it’s a valid one.
“Can I use a pool filter in my pond?”
I’ll discuss the answers to this in more detail in the video below but in essence it’s really best to use the filter for what’s it’s designed for. Pools are not ponds, and vice versa. They end up dealing with different issues and in the end, if you want the best results, it’s usually a good idea to go with something that matches the need more specifically. Watch the video to learn more.
In the end, nothing is written in stone.
This doesn’t mean that people haven’t made something work out for pond filtration, and there are exceptions to almost any rule. Nevertheless, I’ve run across enough instances where folks have a variety of pond problems, and in some cases, they can be traced back to ill-fitted, or inadequate setups for the task at hand.
