Getting started on the pond.

Our quarterly award for the sponsored Contractor’s Corner section goes to John Bruder, Fairview Water Gardens, and his contribution to Six Mile, South Carolina. The Contractor’s Corner award winner receives $250 worth of Pondliner products.

Every community needs an oasis and below are some of the details of the pond build:

We had a location picked out where the pond could be enjoyed from anywhere in the park area. We decided to build a 2,000-gallon pond that was 15 feet long, 9 feet wide and 2 feet deep with an extradentary waterfall. Since the area where the pond would go was flat, we had to raise the waterfall 5 feet with dirt from the pond excavation to get our height and hope that there was enough to get it done.

…The true power in our designs comes from the EasyPro Bio-Bead Filters and 25-watt UV System from Misty Mountain. With this combination, the pond would be able to safely sustain a fish load that a pond double its size would have a hefty task keeping clean.
