Hi ALL...My name is Johnny new to this forum, and new to the Koi ponds! Actually I'm currently building my first Koi Pond. The shape is a kidney shape measuring about 8' x 17' about 4' deep. I started this project about a month ago, since I've dugged the hole just me and a shovel. Lots of rocks and my back hurt...but thanks to pain killers...LOL

Anyway, this past saturday I finally finish the hole, dropped 3 bags of play sand, underlayment and finally the liner (45MIL). I had purchase a complete pond kit, skimmer (Savio), waterfall, pump (Savio), UV Clarifier, pump & chemicals. Also have purchase a HBV-21 HydroBead Vortex™ Filter rated for up to 5000 gallons.

The liner is in but because of the rain, will wait until Saturday to straighten the liner, and hopefully attach it to the skimmer and waterfall. In the hopes to start filling with water.

If you have any feedback, or I would appreciate!

Best regards,
Johnny

Hope you thought about electric because you will need a circuit or 2 for the electrical things Gfci and remember if you are paying someone always have extra outlets put in and make sure you have enough empty spots in your breaker box .I have a 200 amp service for the house but a 100 amp service for the basement and I use 2 breakers 15 amps each .and i have 8 outlets just in case and they must be in use boxes .

Outlets by the pond will need to be gfci for wet areas or you could get shocked and circuits in your panel box where all your breakers are .
