Very neatly done.

Very nicely done Shawn. Prompts me to tackle mine soon. My pond water has also changed to a cloudy green since last Thursday. Can it be weather related - hot daytime temps, and the odd thunderstorms in the evenings.

I found that sudden warm temperatures combined with rain often causes algae blooms. The rain provides new nutrients for the algae to flourish if combined with the warm water. It also often causes major pH fluctuations.

Looking good! Possible future upgrade can be the speck eco touch pump. Will save you some money in winter!

Hi Angryant

I really want to know if the Multi cyclone works.
I have posted before on the multi cyclone but seem sceptical.
Is it worth installing one?
Do you see a difference in your clarity?
I think Ernst had one or has one,would like feed back.

Anver - if you have a sand or a bead filter the multicyclone is a simple must in my humble opinion. The amount of crap this thing takes out before the bead/sand filter amazes me every day.

Hi Ernst

Will consider one.I have 2 bead filters and cant seem to get my water sparkling.
I know Pieter (sand filters)is the answer to gin water.

Maybe the cyclone will help my problem.

Anver,

I have nothing against a multi-cyclone, in my view it is a good product, although a bit expensive.

It will certainly help to reduce the load on sand- or bead filters.

Hi Pieter
Thanks for that.
Just also wanted to know if it will reduce flow rate?

Anver,

Chris Neaves clean his daily, if I am not mistaken. He should know about the flow rate.
