    Not only will you be seeing it. Hopefully you'll be using it! I timed it last weekend, only 45min. between our places.

    Thanks Mike. It'll be worth it! We got all this rain a little too soon, might have to delay a couple of weeks now to let things dry out some. I'm blaming my buddy (a roofer). Everytime he tears a roof off it rains. A lot! Found out he tour one off the other day.

    Need the rain to hold off for a week and we'll have things in pretty good shape if all goes well.

    Thanks Paul. Unfortunately when we built that pond we didn't put in a valve or any way to drain it down other than pumping it out. Also it is very deep with the edges dropping off quickly, and full of fish. It would take a lot of dirt to make any points. Long term plan is to build a tech. pond above the swimby ponds but if that never pans out (it will be big $$$) then your idea just might be an option someday.
