    Bro Yth,

    I noticed that you have exposed the sides of the footing of your existing house. I hope you have engaged an Engineer to oversee the building of your pond.

    Bro yap, your piping positions look a little funny. Looks like you are using circular system. Huge pond means effort to maintain water. With the koi prices you pay I am sure they can grow big. But keep in mind big and quality u want r 2 different things.

    Bro James,
    Is it the s shape pipe?that one I just want to enlarge my water tank capacity,overall just conventional up and down system with double bottom drain......want both haha and have to pay more......
    Bro eryc,
    Planned for it years, with the blessing of gods and luck, finally achieve it:),go for 6 to 6.5 ft.........

    Bro Yap,

    You are the source of inspiration for small pond owners like me... My entire pond can fit into one of your filter chambers! And if I were to follow my current ratio of fish to water, I can actually keep 240 kois in your pond! :-))

    We are all extremely happy for you. Please keep us updated on the progress of the pond especially the lucky inhabitants of it later... Would dream to visit it one day... (Y) (Y) (Y)

    Bro Yap,
    Nice project.. I visited a great pond set up recently. The owner cleverly used plantings to create an oasis of calmness. The trees n plants provided natural shading for the pond. Water temperature is around 25 degrees C. A.sloping bottom with the deepest at 10 feet.

    Since you r stil in construction mode, you may want to consider incorporating same strategy. Use trees n plants with big leaves that dont fall off constantly.

    Bro Pandai,
    I started with a garden pond of 2 tons then no u turn.....haha
    Bro Hwong,
    I think I read about this pond before.....it is a super huge pond, eye catching and relaxing and thanks for the note, anyway there are few concerns that highlighted by a well known local dealer about the surrounding plants:-
    (i)How if the pesticide that drop into the pond, can kois cope with it?
    (ii)All the dust or toxin things will trap on the leaf, and will go into the pond during raining season, how to get rid of this??
    (iii)The dealer said he found quite a lot of koi problems if the pond is surrounded by a lot of plants...
    (iv) He also said that some pond who deal with artificial or rock mountain can cause a lot of koi skin problem mostly is hikui, there is a lot of dead corners will trap the pollutants......

    By the way, I remember that u said the pond depth will same level as footing? However, u have good and experience workers, it shall not affected the building. C when u free, just drop by and have a look.

    Floating debris and sinking debris needs to be get rid of by the skimmers and bottom drains. Meaning, bottom drains need to suck all the sunk leaves and debris out into the mechanical chamber.

    Dead spots are caused by a poor pond design. Basically a GOOD bottom drain with sufficient flow will be able to clean about 4X4m area. As such bottom drains of that calibre needs to placed strategically to clean the whole pond floor.

    Pond circulation needs to be good as well. Pond return should be pointed downwards at an angle to encourage circular flow around the pond. At the same time pushing debris towards the centre of the pond where the bottom drain is.

    Finally, the mechanical filtration of the pond needs to be cleaned as often as possible with minimal water loss.

    --
    Regarding pesticides, just make sure non-toxic types are used. If not, a water trickle, and regular water changes will help.

    One can say about 40% of water is changed per week. But 10% four times a week is better than 40% one Sunday.
