making a koi pond, koi pond construction

this video gives a good idea of constructing a nice japanese style koipond. Build by myself. The whole building took over one year. I could only work on it in the weekends. I will publish a video, of the pond in summer, in 2012. The rendering and waterproofing is done with pondfix . A waterproof mortel.

Amazing job on the pond. You also have a shadow person that appears between
the white tree and the green trees in the background by the two large
rocks. It fades in around the 4:52 mark and fades out around the 5:03
mark. I watched it several times and you can see through the figure. Also
if you weren't speaking when filming this you might have also caught an

You should have put White or blue Tiles instead of just leaving it with
concrete since you done so much hardwork, fish would have been much more
visible and you could swim wiht the fish as some of your family members are
already doing !!!

absolutely beautiful, your fish are huge, how old are they? What part of

you had any issues?

Author andre300167 (2 years)
A lot of people ask me how much it costs. I think it is not so much, but my
wife doesn't agree :-). Because I build it all by myself I saved a lot of
money on labour. I used 14 m3 of concrete, 1100 concrete bricks, and a lot
of pipes and valves ans rocks. And I still had a lot of stuff of my old
pond like pumps, UV, vortexes etc. I can tell you one thing: 'it was worth
all the money .'

Awesome pond ! I will bookmark this for my next build. One question, are
the outer stones fixed with anything or just free standing? Beautiful fish
as well, I bet they cost a fortune.

Hi Andre You can write to me how you deal with low temperatures and PVC
plumbing? Do not burst frozen water pipes PVC? I do like the tank at home
in the backyard, but for me, in eastern Poland, winter temperatures
sometimes drop to -15 * C and is worried that the whole system can be
damaged PVC.

im just curious as to why you left the bottom flat vs contouring so the
water would natraully flow from the outer edges to the intakes it seems
contouring would only aid in circlation vs leaving dead spots with a flat
