Is it simple. Decide what type of pond you want buy the tub set it in place and take your shovel or paint can and spray the outline. dig the hole to the depth of the tub, I would bury the electrical cord underground if feasable, and stub it out near a outlet. That is totally your call, the hardest part is digging. Good Luck

    I have put in two of them. One for me, one for my mother in law. There is a lot to it and I recommend not buying one of the plastic pools especially if you want an oddly shaped pool because it is very teadous trying to fit the shape of the pool in the hole exactly. If you just go with the pool liner, dig the pool how you want it to look and then lay the liner down it is a lot easier. There is pros and cons to both sides and you really want to think it through before you start. It is a project you can easily do in a weekend but it requires a lot of forethought and planning. Good luck!

    It will cost you a lot of time and money to keep it up, balance the chemicals, replace fish and plants. Make sure that you really want it first. Putting one in is the easy part. Best of luck.

    DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!!!
    GO TO AS MANY WEB SITES AS POSSIBLE.
    I AM ABOUT TO PUT IN A 600GAL. POND AND I HAVE SPENT 4 MOS. STUDYING ABOUT IT. ALSO IF YOU WANT TO SAVE A LOT OF MONEY GET YOUR SUPPLIES OVER THE INTERNET, BUT WATCH THE SHIPPING CHARGES. SOMETIMES THEY ADVERTISE A LOWER PRICE BUT SOCK IT TO YOU ON SHIPPING. IF YOUR ONLY INSTALLING A VERY SMALL POND THEN YOU CAN GET A KIT ANYWHERE. THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS TO CONSIDER! IF I GET MY POND IN SOON I WILL POST SOME OF THINGS THAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW.
