    Koi Pool Close Down

    Looks lovely. Seeing this thread had given me the final push to re-home our Koi and fill in the pond. I inherited it from the previous owner but just do not have the time or money to do it justice!

    Goldfish in a nature pond

    Welcome to GC, a nature or wildlife pond should never have fish in it, they will eat spawn, tadpoles and newt eggs. You need to remove all of them if you can.

    Water feature pump

    A little spout would be ideal, I don't really like solar to be honest, I've seen a jebao pump 450 lph with a flow regulator I'm thinking maybe that would be ok?

    I would remove all the bricks clear out and fit a new liner. The liner would be tucked under the bricks. Then clean bricks and lay on a sand cement base. It would look very nice as I'm sure this one did a few years ago. A Butyl Liner will last very many years and are very tough.

    Simple stand to hold a hose end.

    I use one of those pound shop metal stakes that have a bend for a hanging lantern. About a metre tall. Can wedge spray end in the hook for the lantern.
