    Hi. I have dug my own pond and also have used labor to help when I recently built a new one because i didn't have time to do it myself. I would think if you have built ponds before you can hire the labor and explain what needs to be done and buy a pond kit from someone like azponds. They have them presented so the pump,filter, and liner all match whichever kit you buy. Good luck!

    Welcome, hope you get the pond you want build. I like cometkeiths idea, if you know how to build a pond you could hire a labourer or two, give them instructions on how to build it for you. Good look.

    Thanks. The last pond i built was about 20 years ago.With the help from all of you a don't know what the best filtration systems are. Online i see a combination of waterfall and filtration. For a small pond like in my avatar i would like a filter that is easy to maintain and will give me crystal clear water. I will also add a UV light.
    Recommendations will be greatly appreciated.Thanks
