      Exclamation Pond Construction FAQ / Best Threads Ever Links

      Ok I am trying to rebuild this thread that was lost, if you that remember it, I list some of the commonly asked questions, and provide a link, to a thread, that consists of some of the best information I could find on the subject question, all the information is comprised from members threads already here on Koiphen, I just edit and take some of the best posts and put it all in one place, and try to also include Links to each complete thread where the info came from.

      Any help in reminding me what I had before or some of the suggested Questions and answers that were given before, and I never finished it, I know there were some good subjects mentioned before and I had the thread and PM's to remember, But sadly, they are all gone, as the whole thread was started after August .
      I will also include links to the best threads on subjects that can help anyone building a pond. Many of these threads are in Construction Archives and are overlooked by new members, we try to keep sticky threads in each forum but with so many great threads on construction there is not enough room for tons of sticky threads, so by linking to them in this one Stuck Thread it will keep the Construction Forum cleaner.

      All help is welcome, reply to this thread, as I will always only edit, the first post, adding questions and Links to answers as I create them.

      Thanks all.

      Moved this out of the Archives for a while , finally added rock ponds, I would like to make one on all the neat winter pond covers members have built next, when I get time to find them all and put it together.

      Any other suggestions of things to combine to help members would be appreciated.
