I love sitting on the deck watching the koi while I have my coffee in the morning.

    Hello, i have a working hot tub, but we do not use it enough to even bother. i was thinking in turning it into a koi pond. How would i go about it? everything works, heater, jets, pump. what do i do. to change it,, so it is save for the pond?

    I see that you have not used a lining, which is what i would like to do, how did you seal off the jets, or did you leave it open?

    I have a fibreglass tub, that I also want to convert. My tub is it's own stand, with all pipes and pumps hidden away inside.

    The pond is a a great idea & it is also lovely. What are the dimensions of the hot tub? I ask because Koi become quite large in a short period of time.

    What a fantastic idea! I have a small pond that needs revamped and an old hot tub we can't sell. I would love to know more about repurposing the hot tub. What did you do to make it leak proof?
