Just thought I would try and post a few pics of my pond....it's taken a long time to get where I am today but I am not that far from completion now.
Most of the outside is complete. It's fully enclosed...it needs to be around these parts...we have many herons and foxes...we have even started getting otters around these parts . Not surprising really when your living close to the river and canal
Inside wall filter side has just been cladded too...notice the unfinished gap at the back? That's because I need to get into the neighbours garden to complete it but she will not let me until her shrub ( which is in my way ) has finished flowering.
New 100 mm x 100mm joists been fitted . Old ones were only 47 mm x 100. I was not happy with them as they were seconds so I replaced them with thicker and stronger timbers.
The pond will be just over 6 foot deep.
Still a fair bit to do but I have really pushed on the last couple of weekends and I really need it up and running in the next few months.
We could do with abit of sun first..... until next time...
Always go bigger. you wont regret it.
By the way, what you done with the removed joists?
How many you got? need some fencing for the farm.
5500 gallon, running through 2 x Aeriated bottom drains through 4 inch pipe to Drum filtration onto large Bio unit feeding to 2 inch pond returns, 1 return going through 15kw Heat pump, 1 going through Bakki shower dropping half back into Bio unit and returning to the pond. Heavily stocked.
