      Good Idea. I think that is the same as a trenching shovel. I'll definetly use one of those since I have to go under 5ft of concrete at 5ft deep I started digging out the inside of my bond beam and took one step forward then a giant step back..I ran into my main water line just inside the pond from my bond beam. The only options I could think of is to make a wall on the inide of the pond and fill it with sand around the pipe or do a new trench and water line around the outside of the bond beam. I decided to go with a new water line outside the bond beam so that new trench took the whole day and I'm still need to tunnel under a sidewalk. While it's great to have the pond as a feature when someone comes to the house being so close to the utilities is a real challenge.

      I got my main water line rerouted and removed from the pond area. It set me back a few days, but I finally got some digging in last night and today, and got my first TPR installed. I have it at 3ft deep now and I'm going for 4ft straight down from the bond beam. I'm trying to decide how deep my 4 inch Rhino II bottom drain needs to be compared to the sides? I'm thinking at least 54 inches? or possibly 5ft? The dimensions inside the bond beam are 12 ft x 8 ft. Thanks in advance for any tips at this stage. I'm really thankfull for the feedback many of you have given me during this project.

      Another day of digging and I'm at 4ft on the edges and 5ft in the middle. I think I'm going to try and get my bottom drain trench done now and the BD set at the 5ft level I want then finish grading to the drain. Any issues with doing it this way? It's been a lot of dirt to move with 5 gallon buckets as the area is too small to get any equipment in.

      I installed the bottom drain today and set it in a concrete anchor. The gray electrical sweeps are so big I donít think Iíll be able to use it on my top sweep. Should I use a long 90 sweep ABS 4 inch or do they make a long 90 sweep 4 inch in white schedule 40 pvc?
