Ja Jaco, plek is maar klein geen ander grond groot genoeg, sukkel met kragkabels, sewerage pype en fondasies, maar ons sal dit wen.
Word heeltemal met muur aan straatkant toegemaak, geen toegang of eintlik sig vanaf straat, asook buite alarm, indien Pieter sandfilter wil kom insit LOL.

Jaco,

die Kaap het mos nie pavements nie,......................minder onderhoud vir die plaaslike owerheid!

LG,
Hoe groot gaan die dam wees?

Sterkte met die bou werk. My groot kopseer begin more met die klein QT van +- 7000L. Hopelik sal die weer warm bly hierdie week sodat ek kan klaar maak en al die gewonde visse daarin plaas. Sal van my bestaande filter media gebruik en paar nuwe sheets in bestaande dam plaas

Bobby

Ek merk dat jy 'n 110mm Ball valve gebruik. Is dit ook die plastiese soort soos die 50mm valves? Met my vorige dam kon ek net 'n helse groot 110mm metaal valve kry. Lyk amper of mens treinstore daarmee kan wissel. Maar net gewonder of die 90mm en 110mm valves soos hul kleiner boeties lyk.

Hello die Sandfilter man hier!!!!!!

Hoe gaan die met die LG's? lol!

Net een vraag..........aan Groot LG:

Waarom wil jy die trap kleiner maak?
Die SF man sal die volgende gedoen het:
1. Die trap heeltemal verweider het.
2. Die dam "verleng" en dit voltooi het.
3. 'n Brug oor die dam na die voordeur/stoep bebou het.

Oor Nexus kan ek nie kommetaar lewer nie. Al wat ek weet dat hulle baie plek opneem,iets wat ek nie by my het nie, en lyk my LG ook nie

Om jou water te "polish" word die sandfilter laaste geplaas, dws. tussen die filters en die " pond returns", jy moet net seker maak dat jy genoegsame drukking het om die water deur die sandfilter te stoot en om dit te "backwash"

Hoe gaan dit met my gunsteling Sandfilter man, Pieter die manne moet sekerlik vir jou royalty betaal vir jou bemarkings aandeel.

Die reen nou so lekker ek kan more visse in modderdam sit en bietjie vir Paul kompetiesie gee.

Pieter die mislikkepaliteit bekou dit as swembad a.g.v. diepte, dus moet alles toe wees, geen gaps soos hulle dit stel vir 'n tennisbal om deur te kom nie. EK verkies dit ook so a.g.v. die waarde van Koi kinders. R 10.00

I'm imagining a pond all across from the side you currently have planned but including your current steps area where you could have stepping stones leading to that step location with pond below it......would be a nice additional couple of meters that you could add to your pond.

I just built a 4.2x1.6x1.4m pond 2 months ago and i'm already crying for a bigger pond Laughing

see the other side of your steps has a house window there.........I'm still imagining here...lol.......imagining now changing that window there to a pond window, which allows viewing access from the inside of the house, change that window to 10mm glass and seal it and you can view the inside of the pond from the comfort within your house............sorry, but just thinking aloud Laughing

Hi All
I was away last week and due business commitments only have a day or two for the pond this week, weather permitting. This is a self build scheme and time is an issue. Hiring Marius from Tanzania will definitely speed up the process. Thanks for all the comments about the size and step area but the local authorities took 5 months to pass this plan with many restrictions. My filter system (purchased some time ago) is designed to cope with 24000 to 32000lt of water. The plan is to keep only 8 to 12 Koi in this pond to enable them to be the best they can be.

Dankie Jaco
Die weer is vandag weer die hoof argitek, maar ons het reen ook nodig!

Due to the inconsistency of a manual mix, I would probably make use of ready mix cement. Concrete area about 3.6 x 7.6 including filter pit.

Would 200 slab thickness do or should I go for 250, pond depth between 2.1 and 2.5 (steel in floor and uprights for walls)

My plan for the wall build will be cement bricks on the outer and a 100mm gap for piping and concrete fill (300mm wall)

The pond wall closest to the house will only be between 500 and 700 above ground but the wall facing the street will be about 1.3 to 1.6m out of the ground plus another 500 to a meter security wall on top.
I am concerned to get the right strength for this wall!

Gaan helse mooi dam wees. Knap gedaan sover, en alles sal mooi uitwerk. Gelukkig is jy ver van die see af anders was dit dalk deel van ' Goue akker'. Mens weet nie wat als onder die grond skuil nie. Ek het 'n stuk mat onder my fondasie gekry wat beslis nie deel van my huishouding was nie

I have all the local authorities involved in my pond build.

Firstly its reallocating sewerage pipe and now I have to obtain permission to move the main water meter 500mm towards the boundary

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Then today it was the main electrical supply to the house. More municipal and electrical negotiations. What more can I find standing in my way to go forward?
