After a long slow pond build I'm just about ready to fill.
Electrics all in and filters plumbed in.
I'm just awaiting a visit from Yorkshire water as I'm on a meter and I have applied for a water discount before I fill the pond.
Here are a few pics with the last pic showing some helexine planted up in a simple piece of square line gutting and placed alongside the shower pipe with the idea that it grows and spreads over the pipe and hiding it from view.

With filters it should work out approx 4200 galls.
I will get the exact gallonage when it's full.
It was meant to be only 2000 galls when I first started

It looks bloody fantastic!
I’m excited for you to get it filled. Don’t use a digital flow meter though, old school meter are far better.

Have you given any thought to what you will get first? I know you like the plain type.

Not only will you be a visit but I shall have a couple of pages in the newsletter.

If I'm honest Laura I have not really been thinking too much on what type of koi I favour.
I suppose it will come down to whatever catches my eye when I'm out at the dealers....for whatever reason, there are only a certain kind of koi I prefer.
