Question by Lorna W: how do I set up a pond pump to circulate water between 2 barrels?
I am setting up 2 water garden barrels and would like to know how to circulate the water between them.
I will be adding submerged and deep water plants and eventually a couple of gold fish. I want water to trickle from one barrel to other, how do I do this?

Best answer:

Answer by boardhistgrin
u could raise one barrel. then drill o hole at the level u want the water to drain. then adhear pipe…
or jig saw a wider opening,then make/match some sort of “water diverter”. but have the pipe/diverter…whatever first. so u can make the right size opening. the right adhesive too.
the pump only works “1 way”. drop it in there and run hose to other barrel.

What do you think? Answer below!
