projects: ozzie's Pond

Summer 2002
Ozzie's pond is over 13,000 gallons in size and features 2 bottom drains, 4 jets and 2 box skimmers

It is filtered with both Aquadyne and Fluidart bead filters along with a Nitritech 3 chamber system. It also has a 240 gallon settlement tank and many other details which make this a very technically proficient pond

    This shot is early in the construction. The bottom drains are clearly visible and you can see the concrete collar. There was still a lot of shaping and bowling to do

    We attached a priming pot to this dolphin pump. It feeds 3 jets which are ball valve controlled

    A 3 chamber nitritech filter is the core of the system. As it is above ground, it can be fully drained

    Ozzie covers his pond for the Winter and runs a pool heater to keep it warm

Building a good pond is quite an undertaking. We build every pond like it was our very own !
