I would never pay someone to do this. Contractors are known for gouging and ripping people off. I'll build my own pond. It's going to be 10 ft deep and have bottom drains to suck out the muck and bottom. air bubblers. It will have a shallow end so if the deer or moose fall in they can get out. The equipment will be in a shed insulated for noise and freeze protection. It will be concrete to made with block walls for the sides.

Wonderful Americans spend a lot of money and build dead ponds with these expensive filters and concrete catacombs , and forget that fish need a natural coexistence with water plants and other inhabitants of the pond. Water itself can be cleaned in a natural way, this is the key to a healthy pond. The maximum pump for forced aeration and all.

Like you said, it is Youtube. This is where people come to learn. Many koi pond owners are do it yourselfers; therefore, this is the reason this video was posted. Your comments are appreciated, provided they add value to the viewer's experience. You are correct the person with the nozzle had zero experience; moreover, most of the workers in this video had little experience with shotcrete. The sub I hired worked for a pool company and his area of expertise was in the finish work. I belong to a koi club here in Southern California, many koi club hobbyist get together with other club members and friends over the weekends and become weekend pond builders...etc. Bottom line, anyone viewing this video should realize that shotcrete is a task that requires experience and should not be attempted by just anyone. The person that should have been in charge of the nozzle was the owner of the equipment but he was too busy manning the truck and pump. Next time, I will request they supply an experienced person on the nozzle. Thank you for your post Bobby.

When watching the vids I was thinking with a build like that he'd better be sure about living there for a long long time. Now you tell me you plan on moving and doing this all over again! Lol. You got cojones my friend. Be sure to film it again. (The pond, not the cojones).

I had to use Google translate for this one. Per Google this message says, "Do not know shit pigs gunite jet" , which made me laugh ... I guess what he was saying is that "do not know shit about Gunite jet". I wish they had more experience with the shotcrete; nevertheless, I am very pleased with the end result.

Agree this phase of the project concerned me, but we are pleased with the end result. Next time, I will ensure the contractor supplies an experienced shotcrete worker. Keep in mind it would have been easy for me to not upload this phase of the project. I think this will help others to ask questions about whom will be applying the shotcrete in their projects.

During this phase while I was filming, I too did not know if I should cry or laugh. At times it was like watching a circus. I then realized that the contractor did not specialize in shotcrete even though he works in the pool industry. Nevertheless the end result was beautiful. I plan on moving in two years and will use the same contractor for the new pond.

I don't know the first thing about shotcrete, but even to me it looked like these people didn't really know what they were doing. Glad it turned out okay though.

This is painful to watch; They don't have enough air for starters They are all over the place with their technique They are the ones who should look at a few shotcrete videos Go to the shotcrete contractors association web site and see who it should be done
