Tim, Good luck with your pond and you during the hurricane! These tips were from Kodama Koi when they advised people how to deal with Hurricane Lane recently. They are suggesting to install a heavy net and air pump.We are about to have a hurricane a will lose power.Are gas powered water pumps safe to use on a koi pond?
I'm still waiting for the same thing! We are done digging but can only do liner on weekends and it keeps on raining so we've been postponing...and relocating frogs to the other pondSadly my pond is still just a hole that filled with rain water while we were in Alaska and now the hurricane is coming so I guess it will be another month before I can get the liner in. I still have some digging to do but will need some dry weather to be able to get in there and muck about. The good news is that some frogs have taken up residence in the pond and there are dragon flies zipping around so all is not lost. I sometimes think nature is trying to tell me to just make it a natural pond. If fish show up I will really begin to get worried.
I have large trout ponds but, I have been pumping water out of the lower one, and into the upper one with a large gas powered pump all summer. As long as there's a strainer so no fish can get sucked up through, you should be ok.We are about to have a hurricane a will lose power.Are gas powered water pumps safe to use on a koi pond?
