Introduction: Fishpond Fountain

About: I am a Marine Engineer in the RNZN (45 years done in various navies) and am looking forward to retirement!!! so I can do more messing about with tools

a garden fountain / pond quite a simple build, took about 3 working days

Step 1: The Trough

a 750 litre stock trough without ballcock

Step 2: Position and Concrete Base

If you don't position and get the nod from the "boss" you know it will be in the wrong place for her!!

Step 3: Put in Stand and Start Brickwork

Had to trim back of bricks to get good mortar gaps

Step 4: Add Bowl and Rest of Bricks

Bowl is heavy, I needed help from a friend --that makes sure he'll never visit again!!

Step 5: Cut and Trial Fit Top Bricks

I drew the trough outline on the concrete first as a template

Step 6: Tada Finished Beer Incoming!!
