    I know that the ADI pumps are sometimes undependable, but i can't complain because my dealer just gives me a new one when the older one breaks.

    Same here, but when they go out after 6 months and the customer has to pay a service call people usually get mad at the installer. I now try to warn people of the limitations of a submersible pump hoping for the best. Don't get me wrong I owe a lot to ADI since they are the reason I'm a pondbuilder. I just wish they would listen to the installers somtimes.

    Built this sm backyard pond using moss rock and an Aquascapes micro pond kit w/ an upgraded pump. The pond was dug to be 3ft deep at customers request. He has a major raccoon problem w/ fish being stolen from his sm pond that he built yrs ago. Most installs i build from grade up, this one i built from grade down. Kinda weird. No machine help on this one either. Had some heavy ass boulders, not fun. Turn out really nice though.

    This is some of the nicest work I have seen here. Although I personally am not a fan of the equipmnet line, your waterfalls and spill ways are killer! Great job!

    Thanks CGSI, i try... I sometimes hate aquascapes too, but it's so readily available by me can't pass it up. Plus i get great deals and service through my distributor. Thanks for checking out my thread, got some other killer jobs that i haven't posted just yet.

    Built this pondless w moss rock and an aquascape signature series kit. Total build time 2 days, no plants The customer wanted a real natural waterfall w no big spills. It amazed me that impatients would grow right in the water. Pretty cool.

    Very nice! I had a customer that put impatients in her stream and they took over. Big time! You couldn't even see sections of the stream. Nice accent but prune as needed.

    Good Job Twitch,

    Your waterfalls are getting much, much better. You got rid of the pearl strings for a more natural look. Way to go! Nice rock selection and placement.
