Swimming pool to koi pond conversion
I have a 22k gallon 'play' pool that I haven't used in years and would like to convert it to a koi pond. My pool is 3ft deep on both ends and about 6ft deep in the center. It has a jacuzzi on one end and built in steps on the other. dual drains in the center of the main pool as well as dual drains in the jacuzzi. The corners are rounded, not square.
Have a 3hp pump connected to a Hayward 4 cartridge filter, a heater and some other items.
It has direct sunlight for most of the day in Summer (know that is an issue already) and sometimes in the Winter I have seen ice form on the surface. Although very thin.
I would really appreciate hearing suggestions on how to make it happen.
