  • Should have packed bentonite clay around the pipe when it was built . Bentonite may fix it without digging it up - tip it in the pond next to the pipe .

  • Pretty cool you can build your own pond in NC, Any West Coast state takes an act of congress and several bribes or some other form of extortion to stop the government from attacking your property and tearing it down

  • This is a dream job if you look at it properly... The Homeowner doesn't have to fight to get the Warranty work done in a timely matter and he know the work will be the absolute best possible quality the Contractor can give... And the Contractor doesn't have to argue with the Homeowner about what work needs to be done or worry about getting Screamed at when the Bill is delivered... Having the Homeowner and the Contractor be one and the same does solve a LOT of problems...

  • You need a hydraulic compactor that fits onto your equipment. That way you can apply downward pressure with the excavator arm as well as vibrating the compactor. Just a thought.

  • So was the leak coming from under the waterline against the bank and made its own "tunnel"/hole and then found the pipe to exit? Or was it leaking from against the outside of the pipe all the way?

  • Was watching an older video of you running a JD green tractor unloading logs and found myselff laughing out loud! That was exhilarating.. to realize there are at least three machines that I operate better than you. A CAT D8K with a ripper/CAT 613C Elevating Scraper and a JD green tractor with a loader! Still... all those together dont add up to being as bad assed as you are with a Volvo Excavator... that is why peeps like me come here to watch you. With the years advantage you have on me I will most likely never catch you in the excavator category but Ima give it a try. Im getting me a Vulva ECR88D or a CAT 309 in two months and if that goes well Ima step on up to a 20 ton excavator. Thanks for spending the time you do making excellent videos so peeps like me who are already operators but dont run excavators can have a front row seat understanding site management principles and theories as well as material handling principles from a different perspective.

  • Next time your pond gets really low, Get some bags of drilling mud and pack it in really well around the area. We dug our pond too deep and it was leaking from the bottom. We brought in a pallet of drilling mud and just poured it on the water surface. It settled and stopped the leak, and didn't harm our fish.

  • I can't believe my eyes. Leak through the wall to the pond. BUT draining out of the pipe on the outflow location ? Broken pipe between hole and pipe end allows water from outside the pipe to enter and drain out. Seems logical to me. If the wall is sealed then a crack or hole in the pipe won't matter - might help dry out the wall. That is the main job I see.

  • If you want to get rid of the brown water quickly, the fastest route is to place activated carbon within the pond. It will attach itself to the tannins and other unwanted materials and remove them from the water. A very simple way to add oxygen to the pond is to add an air pump. Sitting at the side of the pond, it will pump air through a small hose to an air stone and bubbles will enter the water. When the bubbles break the water's surface oxygen will then be added. Prevent excess nutrients in the pond with natural bacteria and enzyme mixtures.
