    As said at the beginning my build was set to be 7 x 5 x 5 deep, but if I remove this old tree I can gain 2.6 foot in length and Iv managed to gain 6 inches in width.

    5CCBAFD0-0932-4B13-B628-AA95DE248B30.jpeg
    so I will now have 9.6 foot x 5.6 foot that takes me to 1,674.3 Gallons, much better just need to get the bugger out, I’m told it was a leylandii.
    i ordered all my pipe and fittings from Absolute Koi last night and had a call off Darren to say they will be here Friday.
    need to get my self in gear now as I want to be laying the base on Sunday, I’m not rushing the build as I want to get it right.
    updates to follow guys...

    Been busy today took up the slabs ready for digging out the base in the morning, if you see the string line Iv gained extra room by taking some of the wife’s boarder, she want happy but needs must.

    I’ll have to stock pile the soil till I can sort a skip out, got my three stage dechlorinator arrive today so that’s everything I’ll need at the moment.
    Had a mail from absolute koi my pipe and fittings will be here in the morning,
    I’ll update tomorrow guys.

    Coming along very nicely mate My buildMy build I reckon that tree will take abit of shifting, I dug up 3 large bushes on my build and that was bad enough!
    Worth it though

    If you went to 6ft deep that would give you just over 2000 gallons, just saying
    9000 litre pond, block and fibreglass, BD, skimmer, Nexus 220 with Draco drum,

    Been waiting for the skip to arrive, and they haven’t arrived, let me down Said they won’t have a skip till next weekend now.
    so Monday morning I’ll ring around as there’s nothing open till then now, I’m well miffed off about it.
    iv nowhere to stock pile the soil, Iv just topped up a couple of raised planters with a bit but that’s it now,
