THE START OF MY Q.T

Postby dannyboy » Wed Aug 16, 2006 10:36 pm

Hi all,
this is where i intend to build my new QT tank,hopefully it will be around a 1000 gallons :lol: my plans are as follows 4" B/D to vortex(maybe) to H/X to UV to aquamax 10,000 and up and over a shower with BHM.

It is all to be roofed in and i have a set of patio doors coming my way( foc) :P so hope fully it should make a good home for a few small fish and a nice retreat for me :P :P :P

Will keep the pics coming so you lot keep the comments coming, always good to have a few eyes looking over it , as you know mistakes get made and there allways right under ones nose :oops:

Cheers DAN

if your going to build it about 4 feet high then the idea of laying the blocks flat is a bit of an overkill. Maurice down at koi-uk has used 4 inch blocks and never had any problems. (go have a look at his build) http://www.koi-uk.co.uk/koi_farm_page3.htm

his new ponds are made from 6 inch blocks.

hope this is of help as the extra space youll get from laying the blocks upright will give you more water in your QT.

hi mark is right ..the overall pressure on the bottom layers of bricks is only approx three and a half pounds per square inch , the total weight of the water at approx ten pounds per gallon lays firmly on the base not the blocks, using six inch blocks will save you a few bob to on a pond four foot high and give you more internal room ...good luck in whatever you decide

Gerry,
If you reckon 6" blocks would be OK then thats better for me as i have 2 pallets of the things round the side and as you say more water :P :P

A few pix from today :lol:

Hi all,
Been onto my local building inspector at the Council and they have advised me that it is a boundary wall and i have as much right to be as close to it as he is IE a cavity distance is fine :roll:
when i said i was building a raised pond 4x8x4 deep he said as it was so small there wouldnt be a problem building there anyway :D :D
So i got started today laying a few blocks :wink: ive gone for 6" blocks as i have loads of these anyway,got a box of S/Steel wall ties from work FOC so im putting 2 per joint in as every little helps :wink:

Forgot to say, if my neighbour kicks of to much i,ll just remind him of the peice of land he stole when he re did his garden ( all that nice new patio,wall & fence ) would all have to be moved :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

A few pics , cheers DAN
