      Great looking pond and thank you for the detailed documentation of your journey. Did you ever find a way to wall off the plant shelf from your koi? I couldn't tell in the last picture where you have it planted.

      Before I make a misstep on my current rebuild, should the knife valve be placed before the cleanout? My understanding was that when debris collects in your bottom drain line, you could close the valve, open the threaded plug, open your valve to clear debris, and be able to stop flow by closing valve to get plug back in.

      Ended up getting these black pots for our plants that worked pretty well. Koi enjoy swimming between them

      For my configuration I would close the knife valves to stop flow to sieve and then have to clean the under drain while it still is submerged with water, most likely with a vacuum.
