Adam,are you having a bottom drain ? As a koi keeper I have to say they are worth there weight in gold when it comes to keeping the pond clean,there are a lot of types on the market,with types designed for ponds with liners.
More than likely, yes.

Since this is a first attempt, I was thinking of making if as simple and just having two SLOs in a depression on top of the liner. Our place is still on the market and we have one more trip to either be moving or staying put. I should know more by the end of the week as to the final direction.

If we do find something, I'll probably take apart, fill in, and move to new location. If we stay, punch a koi toilet into the ground and then look at getting a proper fish house and separate the garden/fish area.

You're always on point Adam. Hehe even a Koi toilet in the plan. I hope you find the perfect place and you have a great contingency plan.

Well, if this pans out, it'll be fairly easy to construct something for the kids dome GH project.

Providing there is not a mass of unknown utilities/wiring underground.

So, Amazon did not have any fittings available from Prime. Local sources said 5-7. I do not have time (patience) to wait so I am trying out this scenario and using silicone (fish safe) to ensure no leaks.

2" bulkhead that I recessed about 1/2" freehand with a dremel router bit. Reveal looks good and appears to seat well against the wood. I shall see when the liner is involved.

I did this as well on our wood boxes. I hope it works well for you, too.
I'm speaking with Amanda from Rio Gallinas School this morning. I'll get a quote for a fish tank for the Dome and hopefully the school can get us started by purchasing a 700 to 1000 gallon tank for this AP project.

What I always do, take a piece of 3/4 inch plywood, cut a whole for the bulk head, glue and screw it to the inside of the 2by. The edges I sand down, round the corners, so they do not cut the liner.
Once the liner is in the box, nicely folded ( I always fill the box with several inches of water, it will pull the liner to the bottom and allows good folding in the corners), than I cut the hole for the bulk head in the liner, about a quarter inch or so smaller, 2 inch bh = 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hole in the liner. The liner will stretch, that will give it a very nice tight fit. Than I put a very generous beat of silicon onto the gasket.
It is important to turn the bulkhead from the outside, otherwise the liner will get folds.

Adam cut the whole in your 2by larger, so you can get a wrench into it to screw the bulkhead tight.

One more thing, fold the liner to the outside, less pockets for debris to collect.

Third time is the charm. It is ALOT harder to fold a liner consistently as.opposed to a piece of paper.

Inside corners folded in with no glue and only the weight of the water to hold in place.

Cool man. I bet it is especially difficult to fold that 40mil sheet liner. Good work at always Adam.

Don't cheat, 45 mil :nerd:

It helped that I laid it all out (beforehand) so I had lines to fold to.

Filled up past my SLO and holding with no leaks. Trip to Santa Fe tomorrow to pick up the last bits to get things flowing.

Then time to figure out how to get some fish into my original expansion so they can make it to the table.
