From the old pond, which has served me well, to this....filter bays gone, and the tunnel through for the side feeds, one down one to go.

Its never ending Lee.... :shock:
Gazza,

Im having to work around the existing ring beam, but basically the same shape 7' deep end, 6' shallow end. (deep end nearest house) 17'x9' raised up another couple of foot or so.

6 air uplifts to waste at the deep end, returns at the shallow.
2 nexus 200 eazys fed from mid water, + 2 vortex (for h/x).
2 skimmers feeding a DATT of some sort. :lol:

The filtration is copied for each side for back-up
Hoping for around 5500 galls maybe 6000.

The roof is coming off, and a mate is fabricating a complete steel structure tied to the garage (7mx7m). This will be polycarbed and the sides enclosed with a couple of sliding doors.

Hi all
The digging is done for the mo, i hit a small problem, as when i fitted the bottom drain 5 years ago i put more concrete in than i remember... :shock: had to hit with a kango hammer, next doors love me... :P

Anyhow, the pipework for the uplifts are in and the 1st concrete base is down, blockwork to follow.....

I must give a BIG thanks to my mate Dave 5 (the local BKKS club chairman) and his brother-in-law Andy, they helped me so much, i couldnt have done the base without them, cheers guys... :wink:

Image

Ahhh, nice.... :shock:

Image

uplift pipework in

Image

Dave5 with the 1st barrow in...the hat was for his own good, his head came too close to the pergola roof for my taste....theres a joke there somewhere Dave...lol.... :lol:

Image

Image

Image

More to follow..... :D
