Your setup is a work of art and surely puts my little IBC system to shame. Love your work!

Thanks for all the nice feedback. Speaking of loch asitis :D . With the temps soon to hit 40 deg c. I decided to invest in an aerator for the deep pool. I am wrapped in the outcome. Mind you when i hit the switch it reminded me of killer whales hunting using circle of bubbles to trap fish! No monster spotted as yet :lol:

Specs:
Aerator 50w, 80l per m, 36db sound (lives in the water pump box, and is not audible above this). $150au
Diffuser: 15m rubber weeper hose in 600mm circle. Originally had it still wrapped worked 1/3 as well. $30au
Weight: 20mm bluestone paver. Free

Plan to improve the way it is attached, but the test worked well. Please no one comment on the scout rope tying. I really didn't wont to retrieve all the bits should it come undone :oops: :-P

Btw this has visibly improved the water clarity over the weekend. Can now see an object in the bottom 2.3m, before aerator around 1.5m deep.
