    Woke up to a fish pond missing about 4" of water!

    What a mess! Apparently the waterfall overflowed and dumped about 500 gals of water all around the outside of the pond. Too much filter material caused the whole thing to float and allowed the water to go over the sides instead of in the pond. Guess I have to redesign the area around the waterfall so it too goes into the pond.

    Ya, and still had to go to work. Thankfully I have good water volume and was able to refill and fix in time. Guess getting up 3 hours early has it's advantages.

    Pool was fine thank God! It's in a different part of the yard. With all the rain we've had lately, the BLUE tint is slowly going away.

    Thankfully no. It only got down to the bottom of the skimmer.
