That’s the plan!
Might even crank the heater up on it once it’s filled and running before the koi go in

You’re a machine Laura. How many gallons you looking at when finished? Bigger than your last pond?

Between 4500-5000 gallons estimate. Got a meter ready for when we can eventually fill it up.
Windows have also arrived now.

Despite the crap weather and a few problems the guys got the glassing done in 3 days with the windows installed. Top job.

Now just need a day to get dad’s steam cleaner in the water to warm it up so I can check for sharp bits and sand/clean it all down.
