1. Install special container which can be filled with gravel or other filtering material in reservoir (the less fraction of the filtering material, the smaller parts will be detained by him).

2. Surely connect the pump to container: it will direct water of artificial reservoir to the filter. If to manufacture the self-made filter there is no opportunity, such device can always be bought. For mechanical cleaning of reservoir you can use even the most normal net by means of which it is very easy to catch large and small garbage.

5. Arrange in special grids minerals zeolites. The necessary amount of minerals is defined, proceeding from the following ratio: on 1000 liters of water of artificial reservoir it is necessary about a kilogram of zeolites.
