We have a beautiful fountain that was part of a big koi pond. The koi pond has been filled in and we'd like to convert the fountain to be self-contained. Is it possible and how do we even begin? Total newbies here.

Welcome! Have you got any pictures? That would be helpful as a starting point.

Welcome to our group!

You could convert it to a pondless feature. Pictures of what you have would really help

What did you backfill it with
Not sure; sand and garden soil I think. It was done when we bought the house. Believe the liner is still there, but we aren't interested in digging it up- it was huge!! Preference is pondless but we'd consider a much smaller catch basin type pond if that were the only option.

If liner is still there t may hold water and make t hard to keep the new pondless feature liner from floating up

I think you could dig a new basin and line it - the original liner shouldn't be an issue.
