Hi Pondigger. Loved your water features. I live in Cork nowadays and I'm thinking of building something similar to these. I'm originally from the United States and my folks have a little pond like this at their home. I see on another post that you have an instruction booklet and a cd on how to build one. Could you please contact me on the forum.
Have a nice day. Regards, Neptune.

Hi there PDgr,
Nice work on the pond. Is that Butyl or ?? Did you ever use polytunnell plastic for a pond? do you think it would last a few years?

We dug a pond in the field and then got a costing of 2'500 for the liner. wow.

I whopped in concrete.

Much cheaper.

Make sure you have it mixed with Wizard Fibre and Waterproofer though.

Meant to post this last night but back was wrecked from Saturday's adventure. Had a great day at the pond build and I learnt an awful lot about upflow filters, how to connect liner to pond skimmer and use waterfall foam instead of mortar etc etc. Can't wait to start building my own. Will post some pictures when I've got it done.
Good job, Pondigger.
Kindest regards, Neptune Very Happy
