    The cage is just to add some reinforcement around the drain.. likely unnecessary but I had it spare and why not Mikes new pond build

    Good idea the reinforcement cage….one of my two 4” bottom drains moved from vertical in the process of barrowing in the concrete. Then I had to heat gun the pipe later to get it vertical again.

    No I didn’t pour the concrete upside down before anyone asks

    Mikes new pond build

    Positioned and set the drain in place






    I used some euro clamps to hold the pipes spot on level while I set it in concrete


    Started to peg the ground out for level

    I canít talk either, I started my first koi pond project July 2021. Which enlisted going from a grass garden to some kind of fish heaven. After building pond 1 and being told it was unsafe due to being to close to a single skin garage, the pain to take it down and remove the foundations was to say the least sole destroying. We are now on build two and roughly £15k in so far to show for it we have a hole full of concrete Mikes new pond build
