The previous post on the Koi Pond construction featured rounding the top of the cement pond. Since then quite a bit of work had been done on the project, but lets talk about the elevation of the garden and water proofing here.

water meter around the koi pond

Since we were elevating the garden by about 1 feet near the gate, we had to line up bricks around the water meter to prevent it from dissapearing into the ground. I’m sure the SYABAS meter reader dude appreciates this. Wire mesh is used to strengthen the foundation, and concrete is poured.

2 layers of water proofing agent was then applied to prevent water seepage through the cement. A layer of pure cement water was applied prior to this. Acrobatic act was needed to accomplished this.

Water was added to the pond to test if there was any leakage. So far so good.

Stay tune for the next post. Next up would be planting grass and some lanscaping work.

  2. Hi,

    I’d like to know what kind of waterproofing agent and the brand that you use.

    How to apply the waterproofing agent?
    How much do you bought for it ?

    Thanks for sharing

  3. Norzam,
    I can’t remember the brand, but it’s a cement based waterproofing agent. 🙂

    Koi pond needs extra care about cleaning, maintaining and if leaking problem is with this only nontoxic products like can be used like product specs other wise fish will die.
