    I'm not sure, still thinking about it. The filter wont work with duck poo that is for sure, but it will protect the pump. Also the heater needs to be bought extra, at which point this whole thing is expensive. We still have to change the water every 3 days with that thing for sure. It may work well for horses to keep the water clean, but not with ducks. So in the long run it will stirr up the water nicely, and really show how messy it is. The part I like is that the heater and recirculating pump are inside of the unit making it safe for duck use. I do have a 50 gallon rubbermaid stock tank that will work with it.

    I also have a pump I can use to pump out the water and discharge with a long garden hose. My husband likes the idea. We also plan on covering the ground around it with hay, so the filter will keep that out of the pump for sure.
