    Nice job! How does the filtering system work? My 4 need something like that, but I don't have any idea how to go about doing it.

    I'll bet they do love it. It would be so nice not to have to fill and dump the kiddie pool all summer long.

    That is a great job! Give your hubby a [​IMG] from your ducks ... they have got to love their new ponds.

    How did he set up the filter system?

    the pond water is sucked up the pump threw pvc pipes. then the wine barrel has gravel a screen charcol a screen, lava rock a screen then larger rocks. the water goes threw all that then out of the spout on the top of the barrel.
