Thanks, I just wish I used a larger pump for the waterfall to create more of a "cove" effect but the homeowner wanted more of a trickle

beating a dead horse

stxkyboy,

I think you should take a minute and listen to what Vic and Weatherman are saying to you. I agreed with your first post that as an industry we need to hold these manufactures and each other to a higher standard, But I didn't agree that the pic posts on this site were not quality work. I think maybe because of your age your choice of words was poor, and lost some of there intended meaning, and there is no doubt you offended some people. Vic showed great maturity in constructively giving you advise and not being offensive. I think if you had installed vary many ponds you wouldn't have missed the craftsmanship in Weatherman and Vic's ponds. As Vic pointed out there are a far too many contractors that will install a pond for a large some of money, do a crappy job, and split. For example on any pond install I provide lifetime service (not Maintenance) on everything. That means if they need help winterizing, they forget how to re-prime a pump, or even one time when a client's neighbor was painting their home I came and covered the entire pond from over-spray for them, even though I felt there was never a risk of paint getting in the pond. This web-site is about each of us helping each other. So listen to those who know and apply what you feel you can.

Sorry this is so long, just my two cents.

Jeremy

Ckf,
Looks amazing,
Do you have to do anything extra to ensure the weight of the rock doesn't damage your tile work or settle below it?

Green Gopher,

Yes. We had to create a concrete shoulder around the pool 18"-24" wide by 2' thick to ensure that it didn't damage the pool. The way the boulders are set, most of the weight is on the shoulder instead of the pool itself.
