So if i used a basin, i would not need to use liner right?

What i fabricated a vault out of steel? Prob alot cheaper than $300 basin and much stronger.

Why waste time n fabricating something to save a couple of hundred dollars just get a basin reinforced w cindwr block which is required on that easy pro.. its gona cost more screwing around making something n costing you more money n the long run.. i dont no what ur labor rate is but i would lose

Yea, that is the low cost eoc-series which is recommended for resin type pieces. I was thinking the heavy duty eco-series which is recommended for concrete, ceramic and rock pieces. Either way, I agree with you that attempting to fabricate something will almost always cost more and the results are uncertain.

Yeah I think I am going to use a heavy duty carson valve box.

they are rated for 300lbs and the fountain they decided on weighs under 200.

Are you pouring a concrete slab under the liner to support the weight of the Water Feature? You will need this or something similar to prevent settling.

Seems extreme for a 200lb water feature sitting on virgin clay hardpan w a valve box that distributes the weight.

Actually could use the solid cinder blocks thT are 4" thick. Would keep it a 1 day job instead of waiting on concrete to dry.
