We had several dry years when the ponds dried up; the the one in front of the house was the worst, it dried up into cracked hard mud. Here's the whole pond. The well is @200 ft uphill, and water flows downhill thru pipe to our "Redneck Fountain" where it is aerated before splashing into the pond. Here's a closer look at our "Redneck Fountain" in action. On calm sunny days we can hear the water splashing when the pump's working. We are so glad that we have a solar powered pump from RPS to help us keep it full. The pond is home to lots of frogs and tadpoles, some perch, sunfish, and a few turtles; and if you look closely at the middle of this picture you can see one of the other residents hunting for frogs....... We also use pumped water to irrigate the garden and fruit trees. RPS customer service and support have been super; can't thank you enough for your advice and quick shipping of the new controller. RPS rocks!
Here's a bonus picture of that other resident. Water snake, non venomous, but I got the scare of my life when it struck at a frog that hopped in my direction! LOL. Thanks Again!
Thank you so much. It is really nice dealing with you ,not only people in the USA, but live is even better.
It's shoooooting into the tank! It's *#$@-ing beautiful!
