  1. We were struggling with cracking kiddie pools and then I found the perfect "pond" on craig's list for FREE! The ducks love it and it makes me laugh!

    Duck Soup! How are you planning on changing the water? I don't think the filter (if it's even working on a free hot tub) will be able to stay ahead of the little darlings for long

    [​IMG] Now there are some ducks living it up in style....god don't let my wife see this or she will be out combing the for sale adds for a hot tub or swimming pool for our spoiled flock,lol. You can make your own 5 gallon bucket filter like they do for diy ponds with koi that would probably do a good job of keeping it clean,there are lots of diy info/instructional videos on them ...search diy large bucket style pond filters,very simple to build.
    We will be building a large in ground pond with diy filtration and water plants etc to help keep things clean.

    Those are some beautiful ducks,what breeds are they? We have muskovies,saxonies,blue pied and some very colorful black cayugas with a nice rainbow sheen when seen under the sun.
