    Mud Pond

    I would build a half acre mud pond on flow through with the source water being filtered.

    Dunno to be frank with you Mike, I am still thinking it out... To convert A 30,000gal pool to a pond needs some big time thinking.

    Just curious as you know how I did mine. I had to compromise here and there to satisfy the other(better) half before I could do anything. Just another thing to add to the long thought process involved in this type of decision - will you have to put it back to being a pool if the resale of the house is to be considered?!

    I would make mine a gunite instead of a liner.
