    Nice job!

    I got some new ideas.

    What part of the world do you live in?

    I bet sometime in the not to far future you will have wished you had doubled the pond size.

    ;-)

    Im in St Louis,MO

    I already regret the size of my pond.

    But i cant rebuild it. Maybe i will build a bigger one after i move to CALIFORNIA. I was dreaming about it.The weather is so nice there.I already stop feeding my koi now.

    Excellent build, I like it! First it was a perfect rectangle, then the pics of the filtration chambers. How did that happened?

    What kind of UV is that?

    Now you'll need some good koi for the pond.

    I have a "bad blueprint" for my pond. sorry it's Chinese. But i think you can under stand the meaning without the words.
    there's 4 chambers. First is Precipitation dirty chamber. Second and third chambers are plastic brush . The last chamber is for pumps (one for pump to clean water to pond.Another pump to pump the water to trickling filter)and Submersible UV light(I bought from China only cost me about $20 USD)
