Hello everyone!
My name is Elle, and I'm from the U.S. Just moved into a home with a koi pond next to the front door. I don't know anything about fish or ponds so,this has been quite the challenge. After watching countless youtube videos, I decided that I needed to join a pond community.

The pond is about 7 feet long, 5 feet in width, and 1.5 feet deep. I live in Georgia. We have pretty hot springs and summers.

That pile of rocks almost looks like a waterfall set up.

It does. I would love a waterfall setup, but since there are no electrical outlets, I dont know if that's possible. Once I get the pond clean, I do want to move those rocks.

That wood I would remove and put metal conduit under to hold up the netting .I see stuff that you can remove with a net .You can get an electrician to quote you a price on electric

Drill through the wall and tap in to the electricity on the other side (think that is your house wall!)

Right behind the rock, they did run a cord through the wall. It's not working. Im going to have someone come look at it, but Im not sure when. Im a sahm mom, and funds are tight. I'm trying to make this work with a very small budget.
