Hi,
I'm new to this but after advice.
I have a pond that has been in my garden for around 10 year. Already in when we moved in. Over the years not done anything with it As I hadn't had the time to commit to it and My other half doesn't like them.
after spending much more time over the last few months gardening etc we had decided we want to change It to a small nature pond.
im after advise on how to empty in. There is so much waste in it that I'm struggling to empty with bucket. I've pierced to liner in a number of places, but it doesn't seem to be going down.
Just wondered if anyone had any suggestions. Crossing Fingers!

I'm surprised no one has answered you. I jumped on here to find advice myself. I've had my pond for 10 years so I have a little experience but I'm by no means an expert. I will try to help you as best I can.
First off, that is a really cool pond! It will be worth any effort you put into it! Be sure to post before and after pics when its finished!
When I need to empty my pond I use a pump. Since my pond is functioning, I have a fountain so I just put a hose on the fountain and pump it out. If you don't have some sort of pump you could use a shop vac if you have one. I've done that too. You just have to keep emptying it. You could go to a local big box store and get a cheap sump pump. If you have any other questions pm me. I'll try to help. Good Luck!!
