How to Set up Your Pond
Water features should be located in an area that receives a minimum of six hours of sunlight per day. This will allow you to plant many varieties of water plants.If possible, place your pond away from trees and shrubs to prevent unwanted leaves from clogging any filtration system you are using. You will want your new pond to be visible from your most used outdoor space and/or from within your home.
Square and Rectangle Water Features
Length x Width x Average Depth = Volume of Pond
For example: 9’ L x 6’ W x 2’ D = a pond volume of 108 cubic feet.
Round Water Features
Top Diameter x Bottom Diameter x Height x 0.785 = Volume of Pond
Example: 3’ TD x 3’ BD x 2’ H x 0.785 = a pond volume of 14.13 cubic feet
To convert volume to gallons
Cubic feet x 7.48 = Gallons
Example: 108 cubic feet x 7.48 = 807 Gallons
