    Nope you need the pump. Gravity returns the water to the reservoir. Without the pump you would need to keep filling the reservoir and that would defeat the purpose.

    I, too, am going to make a mini bog (17 gallon pot) and it has it's own reservior at the bottom, but I was thinking of making holes for the water to seep out, but exactly how would adding a PVC pipe with holes help drain out water? Sorry to ask the last question.

    Depending on how powerful you of one you want (gallons per hour) you can get them for around $20.

    Yes you can get a small one for about 20 bucks. I am using the 40 or 60 dollar one for my large bog. The more water they pump the higher they go in price. Just check lowe's

    Cap if it is already draining into the reservoir then all you need is the pump to pump it back up to the top to drip down again.

    Ok, wait, isn't the PVC pipe supposed to help it drain? Oh, and I meant 17 quarts, not gallons :P. Since I have bad experience in VFTs, and I'm going to put one in and the reason why is that I think I gave a bit too much water. But what I'm thinking about is to keep it moist-wet, but have the excess water escape, sooo, I was thinking of putting holes at the height I want it and have the water drain from there.

    Wouldn't the water freeze in the winter? If I made one and left it out in the winter it would probably freeze completely solid. Is there any way to keep it from freezing?

    I would say you should bring it in or in the fridge.
