- - 10,000g pond

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.

the pictures look no where near 10,000 gallons
more like 80g tops
what are the dimensions?

Its only 15x10 on the surface, but its at least 5 feet deep, maybe 10 feet.

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.
