The Big Dig !

My next job is just starting ,Installing a very nice size pond with one large waterfall and a bridge across the smaller waterfall towards the front of the pond...
 
The digging is all done and i could not be more happy with that step completed because what could of been a major 
snag in our way ! A huge huge rock that would not move, was finally lifted out and will be part of the pond surrounding landscape...
 
The liner was placed 25' by 25' a biggy ! and we added a shallow area so the fish could come up to feed from the larger deeper area ,Very cool...
The water was added and started building the rocks around the edges and waterfall area,the hoses are hooked up to the pump and filter and clamps and connections are secure...
 
All electric connections are hooked up to a outdoor GFCI outlet with lid and
was tested and working Great !
 
The final touches should be done this weekend if the weather is nice :-)
will add the rest of the rocks and pebbles around the edges of the pond and put some in the pond itself ....
 
I will be posting pictures soon,so make sure you check back ....

Thank you for asking that question about the filter and pump ,There are so many to choose from today including skimmers ,but the one for this pond i recommended was the Jebao uv bio filter 15000 Model # ECF-15000 and Jebao 12000 pond pump ,They are very powerful and needed for this big pond ...There web site is www.catalinaaquarium.com ..I hope that helped and please stop by again when i have the pictures up at the end of the job ,hoping this weekend :-)

Hey there, the weather was awful today so I elected to give work a miss and surf the net instead, it was actually such a awesome experience for me as I dropped by at this website. I just needed to congratulate you upon the level of quality of the work you have done here and to wish you the best of luck with it as you develop down the road. It was nice to surf this website and I shall most definitely be dropping by again before long to see exactly how you are doing. Many thanks and I will obviously see you here again soon - Terry Tenerife

Had a new pond installed last year, finished October, had ECF 20000 installed, pond is still pea green, noluck with getting pond installer to do anything about this except for putting in a new 20000 a month or so ago. I have been told I should be able to see a light in the filter but cannot even see this in the dark. Any suggestions apart from taking the pond installer to court??

I have seen a lot of useful factor on your web site about Celine. on the other hand I have really the theme that web-site are still not quite highly effective sufficiently to be a good option if you typically do responsibilities that will take plenty of power, for instance image editing . But for web site surfing, speech processing, a lot of other frequent web-site work they are fine , provided assistance . Thank you for sharing your opinions .

Good to know about your next job about pond but don’t forget to inspect its leaks after making and use PondPro to save it from temperature swings and leaks.
