Fortunately the soil is LOADED with cobbles and boulders you can see all the dark Connecticut brown stone in the back of the picture that's all that came out of the hole that wasn't gathered up to make moving around at least manageable. Good for digging by hand not so much but soil that will hold it's own for 4 months without collapse yes good soil.You must have good soil because it looks like pretty easy digging .Just think the early start means early satisfaction
I'm starting to question if I will have any water in the pond. I could easily fill the excavation of the pond with all the rock I have. I'll be building rock walls and walk ways for years to come. My luck I came into some beautiful darker shale today browns maroons blacks tans silver copper you name it this rock has it quartz veins granite blended in it's got a little of everything.Are you gonna have any ROOM left for the pond?? haha! Just kidding... I'm drooling over that moss!
Thanks Addy,Nice plumbing, hubby would love that, straight lines, looking good. Mine never looks that professional...................
I hope those red handle ones work well for you. I started using the american, ball valves Don't always need to ability to remove it via the joint. But they are the only ones that I have found that turn real easy. I have broken many red handled ball valves, the handle snaps off trying to open or close them.
I have only loss one, it is on a pipe I removed for the winter, I pull the pump and this one pipe gets removed also. Left it outside, well had the ball valve shut the tiny bit of water retained ruptured the sucker.the two inch not so much.
Thanks Telion!Quality work going into this build. I love how detailed your updates are. Your plumbing was very easy to follow and understand.
