    looking good!!! It wont be long before you can go swimming with your koi. Make sure you get us some good pics of you swimming with them, final touch if ya know what I mean.

    How thick is the liner going to be when it is sprayed and finished.? I cant wait to see some pics after you have done the landscapeing around it, from the pics of your yard you have very good taste.

    At about 1pm, the spray equipment is mobilized, with the spray hose stretching from the work unit to the pond.

    Then the spraying begins. Note: Within a few seconds, Kerry is able to walk on the area he has just sprayed.

    Within 15 minutes we are about done with the first application.

    But not quite.

    The taped edges are further protected with cardboard as the polyurea is sprayed under the top edge.

    And nails are inserted in the diffuser screw holes so they are not filled with it.

    It is coming out very nice and needless to say I am a bit jealous. I'm just glad for your sake that you got the spraying done under clear skies since it just started pouring here. We even had some hail yesterday.

    I can't wait too see the finished product. Do you have an estimate as when everything will be functional?

    John finds one area where the liner seems a bit thinner than desired. Kerry fixes that real quick. (Not sure it was thin at all, but John keeps folks on their toes! )

    Before 2pm, it is done. The liner is 50-70 mill thick, smooth as one could wish and done before a storm comes through. We've been lucky. There are storms to the South, storms to the North, but just clouds and a breeze where we are. ..... Thanks to all who were wishing well for the day! Bet we were saved because we tented the pond!

    Well, I have to go in the office real quick. Full completion shots will have to wait a while.
