have you ever built a pond for anyone in the UK purposefully to keep Freshwater Rays ? I'm looking at building a small, 8x4 indoor pond out of wood - but need advice as far as heating costs/ reducing the cost to heat mass amount of water with such a big open space to? I don't really want a lid as it'll be in a living room and I want a viewing panel in the front. Check my channel, my Asian Arowana is out growing his 6 x 2 x 2 so think cheapest alternative would be wooden pond?

How was the electric wire hidden in this project?
Pondguru
Pondguru - 3 years ago
As far as I remember it came over the top of the frame just under the back corner decking top section then ran along the wall through the side of the shed where the electrics were.
Either that or it went down back corner of pond and under a paving slab and up through shed floor.
To be honest I have made so many ponds and it was so long ago I can't remember clearly.

Hey my names brian. i just subbed and wanted to ask a question. Could this pond be used for fish for food like perch or tilapia?

I presume so but something like a bakki shower filter would make for a much better filter system for heavy stock associated with food fish production.

I miss making them too - especially on sunny days but I had to give up installing ponds to concentrate on trying to save my shop at the same time as building up an online store. The online sales took off and I closed the shop so now I work from a cabin in my garden.
In the back end of this year I will be clearing out the large space under my cabin and making a huge filter to filter my pond so that will be filmed for the benefit of anyone wanting to make a huge DIY filter.

Hiya Pondguru, I plan on making a 15x7x4 (2' below ground level) koi pond inside a polytunnel based on watching your video. Would you recommend plywood or OSB? And when it comes to the frame work does it matter if the timbers are placed length or width ways? Cheers in advance!
Pondguru
Pondguru - 3 years ago
Yes always best to go over the top on building anything I reckon.
John Southern
John Southern - 3 years ago
Cheers pal, good to know. Better to go secure than worry about the pond falling apart in the night!
Pondguru
Pondguru - 3 years ago
If by OSB you mean a compressed chip board (sterling board?) I would say that the best choice would be marine ply as it is extremely strong compared to chip board. As long as the frame is well made it will withstand the pressure no matter which way round the frame supports are but if you're going to go for a 15' x 7' pond I'd go for 4" x 2" frame with 18mm marine ply on inside and decking on outside. There won't be a huge amount of pressure against the frame with it only being 2' above ground but unless you can make the 15' section in one piece having a join will be a definite point of weakness.

I made a pond in 2002 using a similar structure, and lined with plywood. . It's 2017, and there's been a leak. he level dropped. 15 years was good length of time, I'm patching it up today , replacing the plywood , which gave in where there were voids. sorry the image i'm trying to paint is unclear without images.I'm so connected to the fish , scraping the pond was not possible. But it's old. It's difficult to rebuild as I can't use treated timber either.But I'm trying.
Pondguru
Pondguru - 4 years ago
Sounds like you've had a busy time of it and as long as the wood was treated a few months prior to using it (to give the chemical salts a chance to 'sweat' out) it will be no problem around a pond. Avoid planting live bamboo anywhere near a lined pond as the roots grow so strong and sharp they will easily pierce a liner and drive through plywood if it has become softened with age.
haveibeenheretolong bob
haveibeenheretolong bob - 4 years ago
Thank you for your reply.I pushed against time and daylight,to re-ply the inside, I covered the ply individually in pvc sheeting, then nailed it in . Added more timber to reinforce the spaces , Washed and dried the old liner, used it to double skin for practicality. Added new liner .Partially filled it, to reshaped the old liner skin, drained it and removed the water. Added new skin , thursday 23,12,16, Filled pond. Left it to friday evening , reintroduced plants.The following day , Christmas eve, reintroduced 14 fish. It was a push because a had only a water butt to store the fish in , and the weather was getting colder.My only real mistake was buying hard wood decking. To place as a new surround. I changed my mind upon reading about toxins in the woods. I though untreated hardwood would be suitable. But have come to understand that it might in fact have had a treatment . I am looking at using bamboos.at the moment.The volume is roughly 1000 litres.equal to approximately 1 ton weight

Yes if the timber has started to rot then its a case of where do you stop with the repairs? 15 years is a decent time for a raised wooden pond.

like your video and making a start on my small pond tomorrow . plan is make a 6'x4' pond raised by 2' alongside my existing decking . from what I can see from the video's the frame will be with 2"x2", 30mm decking on the outside and 18mm Ply on the inside. i'm not sure what to use for the base so i'm laying a small concrete base of 100mm. i'll then put a DPC over the concrete and screw the frame down to it . any helpful comments greatly appreciated

Pondguru
Pondguru - 4 years ago
Dear Geoff,
With a concrete base there will be no real need for a wooden one on top of it but all the details you have in your comment are correct. If you go for marine ply it is more expensive but will last way longer than standard ply as it is bonded better and I think it uses hardwood for construction. Best of luck with the project.
Regards,
Richard

When you put your tradux connectors on did you just drill a small hole through the 18mm ply because when i have done mine there seems a lot of play in the tails
lisa Edwards
lisa Edwards - 4 years ago
Thanks for you reply!. I have changed the ply from 18mm to 12mm. This has done the trick! Thanks once again
Pondguru
Pondguru - 4 years ago
When the fittings are screwed together there should be no play at all in the fittings - is the liner and underlay lying totally flat withing the fitting? That is the only thing I can think of which would prevent them fitting together tightly.
I can't remember what size the hole was in the ply but looking at it in the video it looks like it is around 2" - 2.5" diameter. It was certainly big enough to get the whole fitting through and really needs to be big enough to get the tradux fitting through plus space for fingers to tighten the fitting. The tradux fitting would pass through the ply, not sandwich it.
richard downton
richard downton - 4 years ago
can I make a 10ft x 10ft or will I get lots of flex?
Pondguru
Pondguru - 4 years ago
It would depend on how high that was raised above the ground but you would just step up the materials accordingly. For something of that size you're probably getting on for sleepers as a wall if you want a wood effect and the pond is raised more than 2' or so above ground.
CrazyCamo

Nice to see you got a good workout doing this video! haha The filter media just arrived! I was going to use it in my current pond, which I unfortunately didn't seal correctly and is loosing about 50 gallons every day.. Slightly embarrassed to say that, but I guess I messed up somewhere along the way. I think at this point i'm going to have to build a new pond to house my fish while I somehow fix the problem with my, what should have been about 1.5k gallon pond..      Have you done a video on joining liner? I'll get around to watching more of your videos before I really get into the build, just wondering about that one key aspect.
Pondguru
Pondguru - 4 years ago
Joining new liner is no problem as long as you have the correct gear to prepare, stick and seal it properly but trying to join more liner to an used liner will be almost impossible as it builds up a film on it which prevents old liner sticking to new liner properly no matter how much joining tape or preparation liquid is used. It is fine for patching small areas but not for joining decent sized lengths of old + new liner together.
I've seen people try and join old to new and it has never worked so the area where it is short is generally filled in to allow the existing liner there to be raised above the water line.

Pondguru

I would personally go for 4" x 2" for extra strength as the extra area / volume will put extra pressure on the frame. the 18mm marine plywood and the cladding of decking should be fine to ensure that it does not deform under pressure. If in doubt use sleepers for the pond as they are much stronger.

That's a major bummer. As long as the hole is cut out correctly the rest goes in easily from there and if you're worried about the cascade (where 99% of leaks occur) go for a preformed one like the Rockways streams from Oase: http://geni.us/enebFc8

If you're in the north east I can recommend a couple of companies but trying to find anyone for a reasonable price who knows what they're doing is extremely hard as most landscapers won't touch ponds. Some of the builder types of 'have a go heroes' may be able to do the construction if it is blocks / bricks but often struggle on the pumps, electrics and filters.

Hi mate ... just a couple of q s .. i notice you did nt fot bottom drains ..also where is the air going back into the pond air stone ? Above water return . I think your videos are good but in my opinion a koi pond should have bottom drain and lots of aeration . Not knocking what you did though . Im sure you have helped many people . Hope the new business is going well .
Pondguru
Pondguru - 4 years ago
+Richie T Yes a proper koi pond would have beefed up filtration and a bottom drain like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89KxdMPtla8 (forgive my super-boring voice in the video) but where cost is an issue sacrifices have to be made. 
I'd rather increase the volume of the pond within a fixed budget than go for a small pond with bottom drain as I see way too many ponds built to a price point filled with humpy back, pot bellied koi, lol

Aeration can be added later as the stock increases and provided the base of the pond slopes down to one corner (and a good solids handling pump is used) the build up of dirt won't be an issue.
The guy did have an air pump for this pond but it was running on his smaller pond so would be swapped over with the fish a couple of weeks after the pond was finished.

Shame this one is a long way from my house as it would be interesting to see how it is doing now since I swapped 5 really nice Japanese koi for the guys mountain bike a few weeks after finishing this pond.
If at a later date the stock requires more filtration for this situation it would be a simple matter of splitting the flow and adding another similar filter.
Yes, working from home selling online is awesome except for the 24/7 nature of it. I do miss making ponds on the sunny days but when it is cold and lashing down with rain I'm grateful for the change of work situation.
Thanks for watching and appreciating the video.

We have a wood framed patio fish pond which at present has a leak somewhere. Any advice on how to find the leak, how to clean the area when we find it, in order to apply a patch???
Ann R Davis
Ann R Davis - 5 years ago
Thanks. Taking your advice, which is very helpful. Scrubbing than band around the sides. looking for the leadk, with a scotchbrite today.
Pondguru
Pondguru - 5 years ago
+Ann R Davis If you allow the water to drop down to a level where it stops then drain out a further 6" look around that 6" band and there should be a hole somewhere - assuming the water does not leave pond and travel to filter / cascade which would be the most likely place for any pond leak. If there is a hole in the liner remove all algae and grime from liner then simply use a tyre patch if it is a small hole or some pond repair tape (available online). The liner will have to be extremely clean for either method to work so clean carefully with wire brush / coarse scrubbing brush etc. to ensure all algae is off around affected area.

The inside 18mm ply you said goes all the way to the Base. Is that below the slabbed shelf to where you were standing? From the video looks like the ply on the frame is only about 2 foot.
Pondguru
Pondguru - 5 years ago
+Frank McMahon Yeah, I don't think I got any footage from the house door to pond but that would have shown that the shelf only goes round 2 sides. On the sides with no shelves there is a single piece of ply which goes from top to bottom of structure.
Frank McMahon
Frank McMahon - 5 years ago
Ah that's answered it. The inside of pond where your standing is approx 4 foot deep. The shelf is 2 ft deep with slabs. I was wondering if the ply went to 4 foot deep then the shelved slabbed area was backfilled against the ply.
Pondguru
Pondguru - 5 years ago
+Frank McMahon I don't quite understand what you are asking here but the inside of the pond is totally lined with ply except for where the concrete slabs are as there wasn't much point putting ply over them since they were secure and level.

I plan on building a contained and controlled fish pond that will be inside a shed that will be connected to and be part of my larger than life (for a single family that is) aquaponics garden. The design of this pond would be easy to shift the water over to plants first then back to the filter if need be.  This would allow the pond owner to grow their own veggies organically using fish water.  Maybe aquaponics could be something to expand your pond business with. Just a thought. Later before I build, I'll bounce my design off you to see if you think it is sound.  Great video by the way.

This video has helped me a lot but I have used railway sleepers to increase the height of my pond, new liner and underlay. I have bought the tradux hose connector so I can hide the hose underwater but I'm struggling to work out how to make a hole big enough to get the clamping nut to fit on the outer side of the sleeper. Basically the sleeper is too thick and the thread on the fitting not long enough, any ideas?
Pondguru

Just cut a big hole. You'll have to pack it out so the liner and fitting doesn't get forced into the hole. Will probably be easier if you cut the hole where sleepers join then you just need to cut that before structure is fixed together.

I'd maybe go for a self made trickle tower filter simply made of graded foams and good media. I really should do a video showing how to make one but I guess there will be plenty of them on Youtube. They don't rely on high flow rates to work well and are hyper efficient.

Yeah, at the heart of it, filtration is a simple process and many of te manufacturers try to add all levels of complexity to it. Filters are very easy to make and I think when I get more time in the Autumn I will do a few videos on how to make a pond filter or two.
gtariman03
gtariman03 - 7 years ago
Oh ok. When I build my pond, I will probably have 2 barrels: one for settling chamber and another one for the biological media. The settling chamber will have a bulkhead fitting with a valve on the bottom so when it gets full, I can just open the valve and let all the crap go. If I get enough money, I can probably mix the settling chamber and biological media in a single barrel by using a moving bed filter media and connect strainer to the valve, so when I clean it, the media won't exit too.
Pondguru

The ponds I am making in the videos are for other people so filters need to be of excellent quality and very easy to clean and maintain. I sometimes do alter existing filters though.

The nearest you'll get to that is a summary of what a couple of people catch in a week or so when they try and remove the bottom feeders for relocation into a larger weedy pond on a country estate. That should throw up a few surprises if Mr. Otter has left any for them to catch, lol.

The link was wrong, well spotted, man. I have put the correct link in there. I used copy and paste and must not have copied the full address? Works now. The 'HOW TO' video also shows up as the first recommended video on the right of this page if viewing from a computer, no worries. Thanks for watching and appreciating the videos.

We've sent it to You've Been Framed as the kids are desperate to get one of their videos on TV. Probably get rejected like all the rest as they only seem to take videos of fat women falling over, lol

Consett is the roof of the world where the mountain men live. Their women walk around in bra and knickers in the dead of winter so I'm sure the fish will be OK. I remember seeing a news report of a Consett resident wearing a coat but it was later confirmed to be a tattoo of a coat, lol Thanks for watching and appreciating the videos.

Getting the folds around shelves is always tricky but if you don't have shelves there are only the corners to worry about which makes it way easier.

Should be interesting and sound provided the walls are sweet.

Yeah, there was insulation in this one too. I didn't go into that in this video but you can see the whole construction process on one I did last year in 'How to Make a Raised Patio Pond' Best of luck with the build, man.

It was the most convenient place to have the pond as it was the only semi-level piece of ground in the yard. Would be groovy to feed the fish from the window too, lol

Dude NO WAY, as we speak, I'm down stairs building a wooden pond. 40" Wide, 84" long, 28" tall. Sorry, I do inches because I'm American and not familiar with the oh-so-handy metric system :P Probably going to do dovii and jaguar cichlids again. My last ones died when I moved. I like your decking. My pond will be in a garage, between my framing and decking I"ll have insulation b/c mine will be heated.
