Hello everyone.

Postby Ian.S » Fri Aug 02, 2019 10:52 am

Hi,
I’ve just joined the forum after sometime sitting on the sidelines so to speak. I’ve been keeping koi for around 8 years, I live in Cheshire and currently have a 3600 gallon pond with infinity window, 4inch bottom drain and skimmer to ultrasieve 111 then outlets to an Ultrabead 60 and Econobead 60 via two underwater returns.

I’ve tried to attach some pics but not sure if they will work.!

I’m glad it’s you, I think I’ve changed my mind and might just go for the 35 drum for the time being. Would still need the pressure pump thing sorted and probably a uv. :handgestures-thumbup:

Is the username due to your love of the toffees, like me?

Hi Ian,

No worries, just give me a call to confirm either way or for some further advice, if needed.

Username, kind of, yes. My dad used to call me Dixiedean, after the footballer, and it stuck. I'm a fan of the Mighty Leeds :happy-partydance:

Still need the hole on the right side as you look at the drum from the inlets side/clean side if that’s right?

The connector thing you were talking about do you or could you supply it?

I suppose we all have our crosses to bear! :grin:
