    Hi effion. Glad to hear you and family are well. Also the fish and the pond.
    The filter drum float switch.
    At least you learned something off it.
    Get the covers done as quick as possible mate. As i bet that cold wind around there is very cold. As it being in the open.
    Love the photo from the mountain top.
    Fred

    '' Maybe I'll get out a Christmas special '' ……. I'll buy it Eifion .
    Ps...… in your photo Eifion what's the name of that tree at the back of your house, its the one at the back,
    slightly to the left, up a bit and to the right, down a tad and a bit to the left, to far go back a little and STOP !!
    yeah that one there, the one with the nice coloured leafs is it a Aesculus Hippocastanum, just asking that's all .

    Hello Anne, I'm completely lost on which one you mean , I've just googled Aesculus Hippocastanum and there is one that looks like that in the field adjoining my garden, so it's possibly a yes …..

    I bet you're glad you asked

    Hello all, and a belated Merry Christmas .

    I've posted the following on Youtube, it's a bit of everything since my last update : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqD2LN3fhMM

    I've ordered some polycarbonate sheeting to cover the pond, hopefully I can fit this before the next "beast from the East" arrives . Any tips on the frame for the sheeting will be gratefully received, just planning on a simple 2"x2" wooden frame in a three sections . I'm thinking of building a frame over the water return as well so I can keep it running all year .

    Happy New Year

    Thanks for the lovely video Eifion great home you have there.
    Little tip on keeping the Squirrels off the feeders,have a plastic pole as an upright,ie, slide a plastic pipe over the wooden upright as they cant climb up plastic that is if you dont want them on the bird feeders.

    Polycarb is great for insulation and 2x2 would be fine but i am sure someone else has a better suggestion.
    Koi look as though they have grown a fair bit and nearly hand feeding,mussels are a great way to tame them when the weather gets warmer as they go nuts for them.
    Keep the videos coming and a happy new year to you and your family.
    John

    Anne, you'd better sit down to watch : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scfndLvPGo4

    wish id been watching this build ….ive been a builder all my working life, I try not to comment on peoples builds because usually, although I might see things I would have done differently, whats been done will usually work, even if its not been done very well.
    I would have pointed out the faults previously, but with a builder on site, my advice might have been ignored anyway.
    Theres no way it would have held up long term, even if they used the proper concrete blocks, instead of those ash klinker rubbish, but It might have held up long enough that fish were in it, so I guess that was quite fortunate.
    Gutted for you that you went through this , but a big thumbs up for seeing it through, that shows some quality.
    David
