Homemade Pond Filter

This nice little homemade pond filter does the job!

Homemade Pond Filter

With this Homemade Pond Filter, what I like to call “the bucket filter” you’ll be able to filter your pond with ease, and the best part, it works great.

This is a picture of my Homemade Pond Filter. It’s a simple concept that really works well for a backyard pond. Please continue reading to learn more about it. I gave you a nice big picture of it so you can see exactly what it looks like.

Let Me Tell You About This Pond Filter

Hi, this is Bob, owner of, and this is my sales pitch. Yea right! I’m definitely not a salesman, however I would like to tell you about this Homemade Pond Filter I’ve developed and tested. The results are in, I love it, my wife loves it (thank goodness), and all the other people I’ve made one for are really happy with it also. So now I’m going to roll it out to you.

If you want a pond filter for your pond that works great and is easy on your wallet, then please continue reading this page and let me tell you about this Homemade Pond Filter. I made my first one several years ago for our 3000 gallon pond. My wife and I tried a couple other pond filters, but for one reason or another we just weren’t happy with them, and for the price we paid for them, we felt very let down. So I took action and came up with this idea of my own filter. I’m glad I did, it does the job.

Let’s See This Homemade Pond Filter It In Action

I don’t want to just talk about this… let me show you. Below are some examples of how well this filter works. I figured that you’re going to want to see some results, so let me show you. Below are some pictures that were taken on April 10 and 11, 2005.

It Does The Job!

As I think you can see, this Homemade Pond Filter has really done the job. It gets clearer and clearer each day you use it.  Simply attach a water pump (not included) and set it on the bottom of your pond.

Homemade Pond Filter Specs

Height = 13-1/4 inches Width = 11-1/4 inches (Top) Holds one 8″ wide x 1-1/2″ thick x 10′ long piece of Pond Filter Media (rolled up), 1 roll is included with the filter. We use this for our 3000 gallon pond, I’m sure it would work well at up to 5000 gallons.

No Fuss

This filter will come to you completely assembled with the proper 3/4 inch fitting, ready to hook up. This filter is maintenance free and comes with a complete 1 year guarantee. If it should break, I’ll replace it for you. Simple instructions on how to properly hook it up to your water pump will be provided. I think you’ll love how easy it is to set up this filter, and you’ll love it even more, when you see the results.

It Doesn’t Get Any Easier Than This

If you want a filter that does what it’s suppose to do, is easy to set up, and won’t cost you an arm and a leg, then this is the filter for you. When you get it, take it out of the box, hook a piece of tubing (not included) from your water pump to it, insert the pond filter media, and sink it to the bottom of your pond. That’s it! If your pond is really murky, the filter media will need to be cleaned or changed a little more often, however, when you get it under control, changing of the filter media becomes a lot less frequent, and you shouldn’t, because it also acts as a bio filter. Just enjoy your pond.

As I said there is no assembly required, it will be ready to go out of the box. I will also send you complete instructions on how to properly connect it to your water pump. I will also give you any e-mail support you may need, or just answer any questions you may have about your pond. It’s my reputation, and I’m here to help you. Also see other pond articles on this site to learn more about what you can do to have a clean, healthy pond. Having this homemade pond filter is just one of the things you must have if you want that beautiful pond.

Satisfaction Guarantee

If I didn’t feel that this is a quality product, I wouldn’t put my name out on a limb and sell it. I feel very confident about this filter, it’s been time tested, if you get one and don’t like it for any reason, just send it back unused, and I will gladly refund your money. As I said earlier, I offer a full 1 year product guarantee, if it breaks, I’ll replace it, simple as that.

Please Note: This filter is designed to work with pumps that have hose fittings for both the INTAKE and the OUTLET sides of the pump. It is not designed to work with “sump type” pumps that have the intake side built into the bottom housing of the pump.

A Couple Testimonials For You

Mr Bob, I always give something a little time before I comment on it and I just wanted to tell you that your filter ROCKS!! We use it as mechanical filtration and clean it about every two weeks. in the beginning it was filthy, but the longer we use it the less dirty it gets. We spray off the media and reuse. I’m overstocked with koi (we are expanding as soon as it cools off in Arizona) and my water is clear, my levels are all great, and I can see over four feet down. I just wanted to tell you how happy we are with it and to say a huge thank you!! Shajuana

Pond Enthusiast

Bob, Just wanted to email you that we absolutely LOVE the new filter system! We were getting ready to spend over $1,000 to try to get our four-year-old fish pond clear. We’ve been fighting with the debris and algae all these years and were about to give in to spending a lot of money to attempt to fix the problem when we saw your website and thought we’d give your filter system a try. Boy are we glad we did!! It took one afternoon to clear up the pond, and we would take a broom and stir up the contents that had settled to the bottom every hour or two…your filter cleared it all away! We love being able to see the bottom of the pond, and the fish are clearly visible.  Thanks for such a wonderful, and simple to maintain, product!!!!!!!!!!!! Ken and Debbie
