How to Build a Fish Pond and Stream / Cascade - Complete pond building video by Pondguru

My Ebay Shop:
This is a compilation video of a 4 part series I uploaded a while back showing every stage of building and explaining how to build a pond for fish. It shows all the various steps taken to make a fish pond which is safe and accessible..
I have also uploaded a complete video of a school wildlife pond with dipping platform and hibernaculum - it also shows all stages of construction..
In this fish pond video, the start of each section is at the following time:
0:06 Digging the hole and laying the underlay / liner
7:44 Installing the cascade
24:02 Installing the edging, pump and filter
36:16 Rockery and finished pond with pump and filter details
45:32 Out-takes
Pump is Oase Aquamax Eco 8000 and the filter is an Oase Filtoclear 30000.
The design of this pond allows for good access and different positioning of the pump for winter and summer positions.
Check out my pond construction playlist for pond building guides covering many different types of ponds including wildlife ponds. fish ponds and koi ponds.
Thanks for watching. for pond construction

Thanks for posting this video. It was a real pleasure to watch. You are an
artist, who really loves what they do. Just a quick question from all the
way in Australia. You used a pump with an 8 thousand litre flow, how big
was the pond itself in terms of litres? I ask as I have built a pond
myself recently that is approximately 15000 litres in capacity and am
searching for the right sized pump.

Great video. I really enjoyed watching and learned a lot. I was just
wondering what you would use to automatically keep the level of the water
at the desired height. I just want the water feature and not thinking of
having any fish in the pond. It's more just a cascading water feature.
Thanks again for the great advise.

Author Ruth Colledge (5 months)
What a very informative video, such a lot of thought and work gone into
both the construction of the pond and of making the video... Thank-you.
My Husband and I built a pond in our back garden 8 years ago not
considering that our neighbours newly planted twisted willow sapling would
grow into a large tree it is today. Consequently we have a fight on our
hands with the leaves that it sheds each autumn. Would the answer be a
pond skimmer, if so what size would we need. Our pond holds 16,000 ltrs
water. Its wide, irregular shape means putting a net over would be very
difficult as would removing the dropped leaves.
We recently noticed a large hole in the butyl lining (looks like vermin has
eaten at it!!) It is on the higher shelf so was easy for my Husband to
stick some spare lining onto it. Unfortunately the patch became unstuck
despite using special pond lining adhesive so we keep the water level below
this patch but would appreciate any advice as to the best type of adhesive
to use so we can fill our pond up completely.
Thank-you for reading this

Hi PondGuru, love all your video's they have been very informative in
helping me with my own build. I have constructed a 20m stream with a large
preformed reservoir at the foot of the falls with 6000 Oase pump for
circulation. The system has been running for almost 2 years now with very
few issues. There is a mains water inlet on the tank with float which
compensates for evaporation etc. I am now wanting to contour the stream to
create over spills etc and to shape the flow of water a bit better. I am
planning to use waterfall foam which was shown on similar videos here on
Youtube. My question to you is do I have to use the foam on dry materials
or can it be used on damp components?

I've enjoyed your video so I''m sorry if I'm asking a question you've

Author waterflo35 (7 months)
Hi there, simply an excellent video thank you. I notice on videos from
across the pond (in the US) they use spillways to provide a more uniform
cascade but these add quite a lot to the cost of a waterfall. There are
waterfall boxes that you can purchase in England and you place filtration
material within the box. So, I'm making a wild life pond with waterfall.
You don't seem to use a spillway as such presumably you just wedge the
outlet pipe in the rocks to avoid a hose effect occuring (?), Additionally
what size piping are you using to the top of the waterfall. Many thanks.
