Digging A Pond – ┬áThere are many factors that need to be considered when making a fish pond design. There is nothing worse than installing a fish pond and having problems with the location of the pond. Building lots of fish ponds, I want to share my expertise with you. I have made a mistake, but have learned from them doing research with other pool builders. Here are the main factors to consider before you start building your own fish pond.

First of all, you must consider the location of your swimming pool. The pool that must be placed is that he will get a little shade from the afternoon sun. Suppose you sit in the sun without protection, the same applies to fish. If you fish on a lake, the sun shines brightly, how do you find fish? Right, in the shade. It’s important to watch the afternoon sun and where the shadow is removed, this will help determine the location of your pool.

Another important factor to consider is the type of soil you will explore. Is the land rocky or only land? Unless you have a backhoe, you can dig a fish pond by hand. That’s why soil types are very important. If you have a simple dig, you can use a mold type boat, but for all my ponds, I prefer rubber pads. Rubber pads give you more flexibility with your design. You need to consider the electrical power to your pool. You need a circuit for your pool for a pump motor that will take water from your pool through your filter media.
