Sorry im talking about an Above Ground Pond, not digging just making a simple square above ground line it up and so on.From what I've read on another forum, there is a lot that goes into a good design, such as digging a trench for a concrete footer, placement of the blocks and rebar in very other block and every block going around corners. It isn't a simple as it looks, but apparently short cuts can result in it not being structurally sounds.
Agreed 100%. Thats why I like the bond beam around the top with the rebar around the entire top.
Im sorry i dont understand what you mean by footing? I am going to cement the Blocks together for sure i will not just stack them on top of each other.
The water part we might have a problem but if i cement them together would it still be a problem? Here in Texas I do not believe it ever goes below 30-40 degrees during winters.. All my life i experiece slight snow drops 2 times.. So that maybe not be a problem?
Okay, that doesnt sound to hard, but your pumper is it connected through your blocks? Or do you just word around it.When I built mine my footer was 6" thick and 18" wide with rebar in it.The first course was bond beams with 2 rows of rebar. Also I put rebar in the vertical in every other hole in the blocks. I dry stacked the blocks to over 7' using liquid nails to hold them in place. Then had a pumper come in and fill the blocks with concrete.
Okay, so footers are for the bottom parts. I was starting tomorrow.Yes, that is what I gathered from your post, but will still require footers , rebar etc. Others who have posted have more knowledge than me.
How much was it for you to fill in the blocks with concrete?When I built mine my footer was 6" thick and 18" wide with rebar in it.The first course was bond beams with 2 rows of rebar. Also I put rebar in the vertical in every other hole in the blocks. I dry stacked the blocks to over 7' using liquid nails to hold them in place.
