Sure thing and I picked up the black stain. Nice call!Sounds like it would be a good fit for our purposes. My pond is going on two years old and the top boards are warped like crazy in some spots. I'm definitely not going to cheap out if I replace them and I want the new material to last a long time and look nice as well so cedar is probably my best bet. Thanks for the tip!
Haven’t read Addy’s article but now on the must read list. Lots to tell. Giddy as a schoolgirl right now. The pond is up and running! I’ll post this evening.Looking great Sparky! You built her strong. Let's hope you can do away with the brace across the top. I think your solid bottom and the fact that part of the pond is below ground are giving allot of stability. I think I am going to put that into plans for when I build another pond.
The bog box looks good, too although making it a bit bigger would be better for your pond. Addy1 wrote a really good bog article. Have you read it yet?
Looking great Sparky, can't wait to see your fish in their fancy new home
It’s about as complicated as a 1/4” drill bit, a planter and about 30 holes. A bit moreLooks great. Really like the way the water flows out of the bog box. Interested in how you did that. Maybe if you get a minute you could take a few pic of it closeup.
Heading today to one of my favorite customer’s today to work on a real pond. 12000g, 2 3hp 3phase pumps, 4 skimmers, 4 waterfalls and not one fish. Just 5 brown bears. Parameters for brown bears? They like it cold. They do have a beautiful 500 gallon indoor tank with the biggest bluegill i’ve ever seen in my life and a couple of monster small mouths.It’s about as complicated as a 1/4” drill bit, a planter and about 30 holes.

I will get some pics for you. Pond read 58f this morning so the kids are hitting the pool when I get home. Got down to 39f last night. So it’s holding heat. Again I can’t thank you folks enough.
So, I get the concept. Water is burst with UV is it B? Isn’t it’s exposure like tenth of a second or something? It just kills the algae? I know nothing of these contraptions. Could I build one? Guess I should look. Really works though huh? Folks use them in the high end tanks I know.
