10,000g pond

Hello I will post pictures of the pond as it is being build. These photos are the damage left from a storm.

As you can probably tell, some cinder blocks fell into the pond, the wind (71mph) destroyed the pluming and waterfall and took one half of the liner stones into the water, then fried one pump and damaged the filter and another pump.

The pumps where $350 a piece and the filter was $400. The liner has a leak too but I can patch it. 75% of the waterfall is gone also.

This is the salt, it was empty and the rain filled it up with muddy water.

It could be more than 6 months before it runs again and the dims are (I measured) 60"x240"'=14,400x300"= 4,320,000/231= 18,701.1298 gallons. To calculate the gallons in a pond or aquarium its depth x width= x length / 231 =gallons.

Right now there is over 400lbs of rocks and bricks in the pond left from the storm. I am very unhappy about it. Luckily no livestock was in the pond otherwise it would have been crushed.
