Asking for a friend, looks like drum filters are the way forward if he can afford it!
Which one is my question it's for a 2000 gallon pond.
Or any other filters?
He mentioned wanting to spend around £1500 😁

Thanks for the reply Andy, Ive been looking at the filtreau drums. The bits I find hard to understand is my pipework for bottom drain is all at a specific height, and as pipework runs from pond through to my garage where my filter is situated it would be a "pig of a job" so to speak if I have to re adjust bottom drain pipe entry etc.
Also I struggle with filter around being the correct height of water for the level in the pond and the filter itself too, as its kind of hard to figure out when theres a garage wall between them both.
Like I say currently running a nexus 200 with no problems at the minute, but sooner or later I would like to invest in a drum filter once I have the confidence that they'll be easy to install/
i have a nexus 200 on my skimmer that was on my old pond bd,so from memory you should have no issues putting a drum in as the inlet on nexus is so low to ground,rubber connectors are a godsend when it comes to piping things up as they give you a bit of wiggle room lol,as to water height,if you turn pumps off and let the levels balance out then mark on wall in garage where water in nexus sits,easy peasy,,,, andi
5000g . 2 spindrifters.each to a kc-10 drum and returning over momotoro bakki shower with 70kg of bhm. Nexus 200 on skimmer
