A Wet Well -
Is a area off to one side of the
pond on the opposite side of the
waterfall, that houses the pump.
The wet well area promotes a lot
of filtration, much more than a
skimmer would. Skimmers are
more maintenance and work and
has less filtration than a wet well.
We do not install skimmers.
Wet wells are much more affective.
The water constantly pulling the
rock and gravel producing surface area filtration. The wet well requires a snorkel
pump housing and in larger projects, a centipede.
Different size models are applied to the size of the water feature

Wetland Bog Filtration
Wetland bog filtration is the most affective way to filtrate a larger pond.
The water is pumped up from
the wet well in the pond to the
bottom of the wetland bog.
The water flows slowly through the different sized rock and gravel sizes
up through the top of the bog.
Aquatic plants purify the water and
balance the wetland and pond.
The rock and gravel and aqautic plants develop a echological
system in the bog wetland and produces crystal clear water.
The water cascades out of the waterfall designed area and back into the pond.
This wetland bog gets cleaned once a year in the spring.
Aquatic plants and stones are the key factors in a wetland bog
