Try checking out Nu-Turf in Pompano. They have a lot of fountains and maybe you can get inspiration from some of theirs.

It is looking good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That lip needs to be as thin as you can make it,maybe as thick as a piece of tile (hint), water wants to flow on the surface no go airborne.More water volume also would help but get that lip thin and protruding as much as possible.capo

McTiki, that will be one awesome piece of work when finished. At least with mortar you can keep modifying it till it works. Good luck, keep us posted. Sounds like you're getting lots of great advice!

Hey guys,

Not ignoring this site, but, the pond is complete now as of lastnight. Essentially, I had a case of
dumb@ss and didn't seal it once the texture coat cured. I used the same method Capo taught me to get irregular looking rock look. It turned out fantastic!

Soooo I filled it half full and turned the new 1200 GPH pump on. Nice! Then 3 hours later, We come home and the pond has already lost 2 inches of water. WTF? I could see the saturation going up the unsealed walls and obviously it was taking place from all surfaces as well. After emptying and drying, I put 2 gallons of UGL sealer (tinted grey)on the beast lastnight. This morning, it looks great. I will go back over it (weather permitting) tonight for any blowholes that may not have coverage. Pics this weekend! Dimensions are: 15 ft X 3 1/2 ft wide X 3 ft deep.
