The end needs mesh or something to keep the fish out. The intake hangs into the vertical pipe in cleaner water. We have used 16" to 48" for different size pumps. There is a formula if you google wet well.
I am actually considering a variation of this without the pipe going into the pond. I would like to use gravel with some kind of barrier adjacent to the pond.
