Hello. We have a 28 ft round above ground pool we are wanting to repurpose it in 2 ways. 1) we want to use the fish wastes in our veggie garden 2) make a return waterfall from inside to outside of pool into a stream flowing out into a ground pond for our ducks and geese. Unfortunately, I can not find any ideas or how-to's on either one much less combining them. Thank you for yalls input and advice. No RUDE comments plz. Also links and pics loved and appreciated.

I like it!!! I haven't done it, but I like it!
So, you're talking having fish in the pool, and having the enriched water flow into a veggie garden.
And somewhere in the plan, water from the pool goes into a ground pond for the ducks.
Did I read you correctly?
What about taking a page from aquaponics? I am thinking you could set up a gravel bed for the veggies, and dose the fished water through the tilted gravel bed, and the water would run out, perhaps across some aerating stones, into a pond for the ducks.
Then the ducks would enrich that water with their manure, and the water would need to be directed to another garden bed.
What's the original source of water for the pool? Were you wanting to recirculate any of that?
Aquackponics with a twist, I'd say.
