Building a New Garden Koi Pond (Part 2 of 3) - Fail & Triumph

Here is the 2nd part of our koi pond building documentary (January 18 - July 20, 2017). On this episode, we began with "disaster" but ends "victorious". This project has been a great lesson for all of us about "perseverance". Despite all the preparations, some things in life will not always turn out the way we originally plan. Stay focus and stay on course. We will continue this documentary in Spring 2018 when we will work on landscaping and the filtration system. Here is (Part 1 of 3) video of this documentary when we first started digging during the Fall 2017: https://youtu.be/hU7gXWuTIUk

Why would you concrete it to put a liner in it? That makes no sense..seal the concrete and use that for the pond

Why are you using a liner if you have used concrete on the entire thing? We used to have a liner, but we decided to fill it with concrete instead, I think that it is leaking somewhere, but I am not sure since it the water level stays at 2 feet and wont fill all the way to 3.....

kimuseni - 3 years ago
themagiclotus wow. Is it holding up ok? No leaks? Do you think I can use the same rubberized paint where I live. I live in Chicago Illinois and we have hard winter here with below zero degrees in the winter. So you have videos of your pond? I would like to see it.

Your daughter is very cute and helpful. I like your pond idea and decorations. You have lots of Koi some of them are big and cute colors. I was gonna ask you about what are you going to do with Koi when snow comes, then I saw another video that you show how you keep your Koi. Very nice and relaxing! Thanks for sharing :)

koi are cold bloodd fish. they will stay on the pond. the pond does not freeze over because it is deep and does not freeze at the bottom of the pond

there were lots of planning mistakes there, but its like you say, learning as we go along. Let me just name some so other can learn as well. The ground slab is a must becasue its takes the full weight of water and you dont want the ground to sink in. Use rebar or a welded wire mesh to make it consolidate better and not cracking under load, a bottom drain would be essential to keep the bottom clean and the flooor should be slanted to the drain. The sides would be much cheaper and better plummed with concrete blocks and since its a in ground pond you dont need rebar or to fill the blocks with concrete as the dirt around it will hold it in place. By using those 2 wood boxes you were unable to keep the walls straight due tot he weight of the concrete. I was surprised the ground slab didn't raise due to the side loads from the wallls being poured. Like you mentioned it is a learning curve and as long as it meets its purpose then its mission accomplished. The next one you make will be better and more efficient for sure. good job

You might use Hyacinths and other pond plants as a good nitrate controller as opposite to UV light. Try it and if its not enough go with the UV. The koi like to nibble on the plants though so a lettuce and every so often will make them happy

I didnt seee that. I apologise. The best liner you can get is fiberglass. I recommend you take a look at Matts work on GRPliningservices here on YT. That thing virtually lasts a lifetime if not more and its water proof. Paints usually crack and peel and its a waste of money and time. The trick with FG is to render the walls as smooth as possible, no sharp corners and without waterproofing additives so the resin can be absorbed by the concrete. the finish after the quill, finish layer and flowcoat will be plastic smooth. Look at the videos and take your own conclusions. It should be applied by somene with some experience with composite materials

Nice video! My grandparents had a fish pond about that size in their back yard. They had very large white and orange fish. Not sure if they were Koi or not. They had lilly pads that floated on top and our dog and myself when very young both tried to walk on them, and fell in pond. big crazy Like :-)
