      Steve, the BD lines will be flush with the surface of the pond. A concrete cover that has an air difuser cast into it will be placed over top each drain line. The air difuser will be connected to the air line with flexible tubing that will allow the cover to be lifted or moved in case the drain line needs to be cleared without having to get into the water.

      You're not the first to ask, but it sounds great. This project is going to take a little bit of time to complete. There are alot of components to this project besides the pond.

      Will you be going to the Toshio Sakai Seminar?

      P.S. What HD location are you at? Any Koiphen member deals on tires for an 03" FLHRI.

      The re-bar is starting to go in along with more footings for the addition. Also a picture of the Kent Wallace modified skimmers that will be installed.

      Things are moving along

      Gotta go, I'm off to the Toshio Sakia seminar

      Well, it's been awhile, but more footings have ben poured and a subslab for the pond has been poured. The subslab is basically the footing for the pond and in the scheme of things it was'nt that big a deal to make the footing a complete slab.

      The second pic is a close up of the Stainless Steel window frame that will be installed in the pond wall. The viewing area is 4' wide by 3' tall.

      The last pic shows were the workroom will be. It will be were the QT tank is located along with sink and counter space.

      P.S. The four legged pet in the 1st pic is my dog Sadie, she's 9 years old now and has been going to work with me since she was 6 months old.

      Forms

      Form work for the Shotcrete pond walls has started

      The remaining plywood that has to go up will be similar to MDO plywood that has a completely smooth surface. When the forms are stripped the concrete on those walls will be nice and smooth. A chamfer strip will be used over all the seams in the plywood to give the wall some detail.

      Things are moving along, the pond floor steel has been inspected and it will be poured on Monday.

      The floor will be poured within the forms between the steel, after the rest of the plumbing and lights go in the walls will get shotcrete.

      The plywood rings around the drains and air lines are to form the recesses needed for the Polyurea that will be sprayed later.

      I told the owner,"with all the steel and concrete in this thing, if he ever decides to give up koi keeping, he could put a lid on it and use it for a bomb shelter"

      With all 15k gals. of this pond above ground it has to be pretty solid, it will also be supporting an 8" thick concrete deck around the top of it, so when your outside walking around the pond it will only 18" high.
