I'll use Lifetec pump. because the prise is really cheap here if we compare to Tsurumi or even Oase pump (This one is really expensive here but the quality really superb).

I really worry for the glass. It curve a little when the pond is full.


There are about 3 point of leakage on the sealant but the major problem is there is a leakage in the inlet pipe to the filter. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Is there any way to fix the leaks? Could you put a pipe inside the pipe, like they do with well pumps? What an amazing project!

Just keeping on keeping on....

Unfortunately the only way i can fix this problem is by taking apart the concrete

yes i have fired the foreman.
He's using the thin pipe. he's not using the water proofing material for the concrete. He's using only paint. That's why the pond dry only in one night.
