I don't know if they did or if the 71 mph wing gusts did.. There is nothing I can do. We are thinking about building a new one in the back yard.

It is, that is a picture of the one before the storm. I don't have a new picture of the re-built pond.

Yes im still confused on how that is 10,000 gallons?!?
Ive heard a 10,000 gallon pond would be 30X15x4, and you said you only have a 15x10x5??
Ive once hear 21x23x16 was a 10,000 too but thats still not what you have.

1 cubic foot = 7.4805 gallons

So if you want to calculate volume just multiply length X width X depth X 7.4805 and you will have the total gallons...

Therefore
roughly 1337 cubic feet would equal 10,000 gallons.

Regardless, I think we can all agree that this project absolutely rocks!

Sorry,

I forgot to post the metric conversion as well...

1 cubic meter = 264.17205 gallons, so same formula just use this conversion factor...

We filled it in because of the damage, but we are going to build a new one soon.
