      We dug the pond out in 1 day.
      It was 5 ft in one area but we filled it in with the sides that were shaved off with the jack hammer.

      Part 3
      We added plastic because it is raining alot here and it is easiest to pump out water from the center where the bottom drain will go.
      We had a tarp over the pond and it still managed to get 6” of water inside of the pond.
      It is better to contain the water to prevent the bottom from getting saturated.

      Part 4.
      Forms, rebar and plumbing going in.

      We removed the tie downs from plumbing to rebar and installed on separation chairs installed before the pour to separate the rebar 3” from the dirt and plumbing 3” from rebar. We also added 18 more 3” dobies to raise the rebar from the floor and was lifted up manually once the floor was partially set.
      Rebar schedule 6” OC for #4 bond beam.
      8” OC for #3 surrounding.


      Rebar was half way done at this point so we could pull the pvc through the walls and install the 4” midwater intake.

      The Pressure was tested over night until we were done with the concrete.
      Always good to use two test gauges just In case one is stuck.

      New concrete pond installation 5000 gallons with RDF and bead filter.

      Despite the rain we could have had this pond dug and poured in 3-4 days.
      Now we maintain moisture in and around the pond, we will wait 1-2 weeks for the concrete to cure then treat with muriatic acid and seal with epoxy.

      The corner walls are 11” thick and the middle sections 9” thick.
      The floor is 12” thick then tapers to the drain 1/4 per foot.

      We are using 5000 psi shotcrete with fiberglass and xypex admix.
