    Yes, as Snake mentioned used dishwashing liquid, that is what it is for....to break down oil and grease.

    Then more on those totes, I have a mate who uses them and he added a 63mm ball valve to the bottom of it and sectioned it in half on the inside. The used that section as the settlement chamber, easy to clean as he just opens up the ball valve to flush it out.

    Think for settlemtn that would be a good choice.

    Then with regards to putting your pond in the corner cos you can put a fence around it, why not put it close and rather put a safety net on it, then it's safe for the kids and protect you against predators\birds etc.....a fence does not stop a bird or animal from digging under\flying over.

    This is the net I have on my pond, not sure if you can get similar there, and this is a saftey net safe for families etc

    also, make sure your soil is firm, if you have some heavy rainfall and the sides take on too my water then the whole side will collapse with a liner......absolute fact and then you sitting with a huge repair job!

    Just my 2c

    Here is a pic of my settlement tank with a prefilter that has bacti-twist in it. This spring I will be changing it to a 300 gallon bio filter and removing my 2-55 gallon bio barrels and installing my new cetus sieve.

    Do you have a picture of the backyard? What shape and gallons are you wanting for the pond?

    Before you buy a liner, look at a local roofing store. You can get firestone 45mil liner cheaper than at any pond store.
