My little tractor was no match for this big liner! We had to resort to dragging the pallet.Make sure we get a liner loaded shot! and installing and installed..................
Once the liner is in the hole I can unroll it and air cushion move it like we do the wrestling mats.Oh my! That's some liner!
Any idea what it weighs?
If that machine couldn't handle it...
How are you gonna do it? An army of very strong friends I'm guessing. Even with them...I don't know...that thing is huge!
The plumbing will be a big 4” header pipe with 2” radials coming off of it. The 4” header will be about 4” below the floor of the bog (which will be right at 12” deep.).
Mine turns over once about every 2-3 hours. And my pond still stays perfect. The water going into the hot tub bog does not turn over that pond except every 2-3 weeks the flow is so low. But it still works. And I have a lot of plants in that pond.I still won’t turn over the volume of the pond but every 6 days.
Thanks for keeping my hope alive!Mine turns over once about every 2-3 hours. And my pond still stays perfect. The water going into the hot tub bog does not turn over that pond except every 2-3 weeks the flow is so low. But it still works. And I have a lot of plants in that pond.
This is the hot tub pond. Two of the fan tails.

Thank you! These ponds are very popular in rural NW Ohio. Apparently the ground water is high in sulfur. Digging a large pond collects winter runoff and becomes the water source for the home.wow what a pond
I like your approach! I have ferns and hostas out of my ears, so I’ll drop them in there and see how it goes. There is a pond store here and I’ll see what they have left this late in the season. It’ll be economy plants for the remainder of this season as I’m over budget already on the construction! Rofl.Never heard of a point well.
Our well is really deep, no clue how deep but our neighbors say 100's of feet.
Per the bog, I have just stuck things in some grow some don't. When I first planted it, I had nicely spaced plants all sorts of different plants, now it is a jungle with whatever grows grows, easy to care for. I just yank plants now and then to have some control.
I have no desire for a nicely planted pretty bog. But all the plants do bloom and look quite pretty.
