    I have had my thinking hat on, and was wondering if any of you experts have tried a water pump,to drain the dirty water from a duck pond.
    But by using a 15 meter pipe,to run up into a water butt (don't know if you call it that in USA, but its a large container/drum that collects rainwater from the roof via a gutter)
    I hate to waste water,and it would be handy to throw on the duck poop,on the patio,when they aren't on the grass

    The patio is on a slight hill,so water would run up slightly, then almost vertical for a metre,till it drains out
