Some bottom drains are designed with a air bubble diffusers which provide very important aeration to the ponds natural environment. The air diffuser also adds much needed circulation inside the pond to ensure that debris and waste do not sit and stagnant any area for long.
With most retro bottom drains you simply fill the base of the drain with heavy substrate like sand or gravel. We recommend placement of your retro bottom drain to be at the lowest position in the pond. This will help promote the best circulation and drainage for removing all unwanted waste and debris.
