Does Chewy also sell the pumps that would go with this..??
Answer by ChewyMay 17, 2018
We currently offer the Tetra Pond Water Garden Pump, which can be used with this filter.

What are the size dimensions for this unit
Answer by ChewyJan 20, 2018
The TetraPond Waterfall Filter measures 19-1/4 inches in length x 11-3/4 inches in width x 12-1/4 inches in height.

Is this waterfall filter a “stand alone” filtration system? I have a 25 gallon whiskey barrel container pond and my aqueous 30 filter bit the dust. I need filtration/aeration for this size pond. Will this alone work for me? Thx!

Water is falling into our pond.

Finally got it hooked up today. So far, so good. Toughest challenge was finding a spot for it without having to move any of the large stones that ring our pond. Would be nice if it came with a hose clamp. I had to go buy one.

Better than expected

It was hard to visualize the size of this waterfall in proportion to my small pond, so it turned out large, and looks terrific. It is sturdy, and works very good too. I did decide to add fine pond filtering material as well, as my area is somewhat dusty. The pond now looks better than it ever has, and I'm real pleased. Oh yes, they recommended I add ceramic clarifier, to put in the black mesh bag, and it really was needed to hold down the filter material that wanted to float up when the pump is on. No big deal to add the ceramics as they are inexpensive, and sold by the pound. Based on pump pressure, I needed four pounds to keep the filters down. The filters are easy to clean too, just wash out the filter material with dish soap and rinse well. Leafs and large stuff are caught with the stiffer pre-filter that comes with the unit, and it too, cleans up well. The inlet hole is 1 inch, so you can use the fittings that come with it, or use your own, if you have an existing 1 inch setup.

Waterfall Filter

I haven't used this yet as I'm still setting up the pond in a new home. I thought I was going to be able to eliminate the filter on the bottom of the pond but cannot figure out how to do this. This was the purpose of the external filter. All the new pumps I've looked at have a filter on them, looking for one that doesn't. I am open to suggestions! Thank you!

Great waterfall filter

I love this waterfall pond filter! I have it set up outside of my pond. It was easy to put together, looks great and a breeze to clean! I also purchased to go in the mesh bag that comes with the waterfall, the Marineland C-Series Canister Ceramic Rings and 2 sets of the biofilter balls and they work very well together.

Beautiful Waterfall Effect

Our pond is surrounded by trees, and we have struggled to keep water clear. This waterfall feature has a double filtering system. The waterfall feature along with the Tetra Debris handing pump is a perfect solution for us.

great way to add a waterfall to your pond

works great, I just wish I could think of a way to stop the dirty water running back into the pond when I change the filter ....

Like others have said - missing parts / o rings.

Seems to have a QC issue in making sure all parts are included in package. Have read many other reviews commenting on the same issue.

Great and Simple

The Waterfall filter works great and is so easy to clean. However, we never received the 2 O-rings and the inside Lock nut. We replaced it with something temporary, which is leaking unfortunately, and are trying to get in touch with Tetra to send us the missing parts. However, Tetra's customer service seems to be nonexistent. They never reply and are hard to reach by phone. Any help with this would be appreciated!
