Default Vortex Settlement Chambers

Is anyone currently using a vortex settlement chamber? If so, what size
chamber and what sized pond?

I use a 3 foot diameter vortex with a 4000 gallon pond. It does an
excellent job of collecting most of the solids ahead of the bead filter.

Could you post some more specifications? How deep is it? etc.?

BV,

The vortex that I got is shown on
http://www.sugarloafkoi.com/pumps_filtration.htm near the bottom of the
page. He has 2, 3, and 4 foot models, with one picture showing all three
side by side and another picture of him standing by the 4 foot model. I
think that mine required about a 4 foot deep hole, but it is mounted on the
side of my pond that is more downhill, and therefore I only had to dig about
2 feet, and build a wall to backfill to the top.
