    fiberglass bottom

    Hi, I'm building a koi pond 10 x 13 by 7' deep with block walls and will probably go with fiberglass sides and bottom. Unless I can find someone good in Minnesota that can apply polyuria coating correctly and have no leaks after it's done. My question is what do I do with the bottom if I fiberglass it? Do I cement it or is there another way to be able to apply fiberglass? I will have a bottom drain.
    Thanks for your replies.

    Actually Paul, I believe Koi Acres has been telling people that they sold their Polyurea rig.

    well I called Mike to ask cause i am not into the "i hear" things


    yes they did sell the rig and now are fiberglassing ponds now(not many pond contruction companies are doing that)

    had a long conversation with Mike and was telling me about poly vs fiberglassing

    so give him a call so you can hear first hand from him and he can answer any questions you have.

    do not know how far away you are but would be worth just going there for a visit.
    then can see their products they have available for pond contruction and to go visit their mud ponds where they are growing some high quality koi.
