If you’ve never had fish living in your yard or near your business, you may have never seen the many predators that love to snack on expensive koi.
You’re free to design a koi pond based around the available space in your backyard and then calculate how many fish will fit in that space.
Beyond the basics required for that koi to thrive, there are some optional pond features that are worth considering.
As you dive into the fun world of koi, you'll discover that with the proper tools to keep your pond clean and your koi healthy, these fish can be your companions for 20 years or longer.
Designing a quality brine pond, that functions as desired, takes a lot more work than just picking a liner.
A liner of some kind is essential for a brine pond because the water can’t be allowed to seep out through bare soil.
When brine ponds are designed for short or long-term storage rather than evaporation or alternative processing, covers are often used to contain the water.
Evaporation ponds are used for non-brine wastewater too, so in some cases they do not need such stringent engineering and security as the brine pond.
Sizes, depths, volumes, and length of use vary, but all lined brine ponds share some common advantages over other processing methods available for brine treatment.
The term brine doesn’t just refer to the combination of water and salt.
