I have a 40 gallon preformed filter, it is not in the ground. I have 1 DBT in there, I dont like the way my submersible 30 gallon filter is working. So I was looking on youtube and came across the Wendy Filter.

Has anyone made one and are using it?

I am not sure what size pump I would need for this size pond and filter. I plan on making the Wendy using a 2.5 gallon bucket.

Any help and info would be great, thank you.

I'm pretty sure its the same as the Skippy filter. I used a 30 gallon plastic garbage can for mine. And I bought a small sump pump from Harbor Freight to move the water.
