I have previously had issues with one of my 4 inch bottom drains but it’s getting ridiculous now.
The One I keep having an issue with is the one with the standard dome cover. The dome has split again and becomes detached from the stem which then basically creates a vacuum affect. Basically the cover then sits on the bottom which obviously stops the water pulling through. It has happened a couple of times before, but this time twice in a month. It isn’t as though I am trying to pull through a vast amount of water from the drain. That drain goes to a sieve which feeds a 20000 and 12000 superfish pumps.
The main problem is that when it happens I have to drain about 4000 gallons of water off to be able to fix it!
Has anybody else had this issue or know why it happens?
Also do we have any contacts for someone with diving equipment who I can pay to get in the pond and replace the dome again?
Any advice will much appreciated
is this just a standard drain like a kockney koi one,years ago mine did the same and i managed to get hold of a spindrifter aerated dome second hand,used a 1 1/2" connector to join onto stem of bd,never came off or broke,in fact im going to use it on new pond,saved me buying 2 spindrifters lol,cheers andi
