    Free Holding Tank/pool

    Anybody on the forum needing a holding pool?
    Thought I'd offer it for free on here to give something back for all the help and effort everyone puts in on the site, before I stick it for sale on ebay or the other Koi sites.

    Its an Intex rectangular pool (3m x 2m x 0.75) with metal frame and I've fitted a 3" side drain at low level in one corner and a 22mm push fit overflow.
    No rips or holes, I've literally transferred my fish from it this weekend.
    Its currently sat on 4" of Jablite insulation, insulated all the way around with 2" and has HD Black polythene bungeed on top of the insulation.
    There's also 4 sheets of 25mm Polycarb for the top with a cut out where I had my auto-feeder.

    I've had my fish in it all this year (8 fish up to 65cm) and they've been absolutely fine, I'll hose it out before its collected but it will need a good jetwash before use.

    All the above free of charge to whoever wants to collect from Lincoln LN6.
    The pool would go in a car but obviously the Insulation and poly carb will probably need a van.

    All I ask is that it will genuinely be used and not just put up for sale.

    Wow that's an incredibly generous offer. Are you absolutely sure you don't wish to keep it all in case you need to strip down your pond at any time? I've got an Intex as an emergency pond. They work extremely well and store away neatly..I'm amazed how many times I've used it since I got it, so just thought I'd ask. They've certainly gone up in price since COVID! Free Holding Tank/pool

    To be honest it would probably get snapped up if I advertise it but I'd like to pay it forward if it helps someone out.
    I've just finished an extension/refurb of my pond so fingers crossed I'll never need it again.
