actually, christy, that was the first drain... i used a syphon hose and "vacummed" the bottome to get the muck out. then, the tiers were not lined up right... then the hose to the pump came out of the top tier... then matthew left the water on too long...

and triss, i got that one as a kit from kmart on clearance for $50. regular price was around $75. three years ago.

i used the fish tank vacumm syphon that has the screen on the end to do it, once i got it going, it went pretty fast.

it was about $8 at petsmart. good investment.

You got rid of your old pond????? Your original one? I guess it was too much work with 2 right? Did you transfer all the fish that were in it to your big one?

CINDY--------WHY? did you fall into it 1 too many times???

njoynit----if you get any underwater lights, the bulb lasts longer if it is not actually underwater. i have mine in my stream bed. my mom used her's down in her pond and it kept going out, then she put her's in the stream and it lasts longer. those little bulbs are like $4 and $5 a piece.
