    Hi folks, I've had a long running obsession with water features. We haven't had one since we moved a year ago, and when my friend offered me a free liner and pumps, I ignored my wife's protests and started digging.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas, I will post a build thread.

    My hands were spared, had a decent pair of leather gloves. This was a pretty dinky hole by comparison and the dirt was relatively soft. Still it was enough to convince me I didn't need anything bigger...

    This is by far one the friendliest forums I've signed up for, cheers! Must be something in the water.
