      Looks like you're gonna have to increase the pond budget by at least 20 % to keep that crew happy with beer and food....

      It is smart to use liner in this build.

      Yea bud
      10 cu yd of concrete is no cheap but dirt are free
      I have put so much thoughts into this to keep within budget and still quality enough to last a few decades

      Great work so far Mitch! Can't wait to see this filled with water. Curious, why add so much dirt instead of angling the piping down towards the floor, don't want it that deep?

      I can tell that by the way you hit the ground running. Great progress so far. It's fun to figure it all out before you start, and then when you finally get to work it's a feeling of deja vu. Thanks for the pics...a happy looking bunch of friends.
