Koi ponds are perfect for enhancing spring and summer gardens as it not only forms beautiful aesthetic features, but the flowing water and moving fish also create tranquillity and serenity – at the same time. We share some non-PT insider tips and insights to help ensure seamless installation and maintenance of your koi pond.

Simplify your life by using a plastic pool to create your koi pond

Long-term practicality and economy should be key considerations when embarking on mission koi pond. As plastic pools are manufactured from heavy duty industrial plastic, it is a highly sensible alternative to fibreglass pools. These are just some of the benefits it holds:

  • More cost-effective
  • Lasts longer and does not easily crack
  • Algae resistant
  • Does not have to be cleaned as often
  • Requires very little maintenance
  • Only unskilled labour needed for installation
  • Increases the water temperature

Installation of a plastic koi pond

All it takes to install your plastic Koi pond are eight exceptionally easy steps:

  1. Outline the shape: to determine the correct shape and size of the hole that needs to be dug for your Koi pond, simply place the plastic pond upside down on the area where you wish to place it.
  2. Dig a hole: start digging from the outer edge of the plastic pond towards the inside. When you are done, the hole needs to be just a few centimetres larger than the pond.
  3. Smooth the hole: make sure that the bottom of the hole is level and that any sharp rocks and stones are cleared out.
  4. Fill the hole: tip a six centimetre layer of sand into the hole
  5. Lower the liner into the hole: carefully place the liner inside and make sure that it ‘fits’ snugly
  6. Fill sides: use sand or soil to fill up the few centimetres of space around the pond and check that it is firmly in place.
  7. Fill with water: fill the Koi pond liner up with water
  8. Firm up: use your hands to place soil under the marginal shelves.
