    Ponds in Canada

    You can do it Colleen, just be patient and stay away from those bad carbs. Sugar is not our friend! We buy lots of eggs too. I like to put a little of the good cheeses on them.

    New, small pond and a mess

    and welcome @IndolentFop Yep no sod in ponds as it makes a mucky mess. Plants in pots is good. 100% clay and additive free kitty litter. You can buy a brand called Special Kitty at Wal-mart and there are other kinds at other stores also. Make sure no perfumes etc. just 100% clay on the label...

    Is super glue appropriate for pond patches?

    and welcome @manonthemoon I don't think that will work at all for long anyways. I would think you would have to patch it like you would a tire inter-tube. Thankfully I have never had the issue.............yet.

    Water drainage when pump is on

    @Ktran I hope if you need to add water you have dechlorinator if you have chlorine in your city water. If you have well water you won't need it. Just add water slowly so fish don't become shocked. More info would be good on what happened.

    Pump recommendations

    @ErinH I like the Laguna submersible's. They are long lasting and not bad on power consumption. I have a Laguna 4280 for my 2400 gal pond. I took the cage off tho so I could hook it up to a prefilter. But if I had to do this all over again I would have built a bog instead as they are such good...
