Sorry if this question has been answered but I didn’t find anything specific upon a search. I will be getting a pond loop installed very shortly. I was going to wait until fall so I’d be more ready for the whole process but our existing unit just took a dump on us, so no time like the present eh? I need to get everything done by the time the summer heat hits us.

My question is about the trench into the pond. I’ll be talking to my contractor a bit more about it in these coming days but I figured I’d get a little back knowledge myself on the matter. My understanding is that they have to trench into the pond a few feet down to get below frost line. That worries me because I’m fairly confident that my pond has a clay liner. How is this addressed? What have others done when getting geo installed in pond? This is the biggest obstacle I’m seeing and I don’t want to abandon the project because of it but I don’t want the pond ruined. Thanks for any input!

I'm sure your installer thought of this if he's done these before, but make sure your house is well above pond level. The previous owners of the house I am in currently had a pond loop installed and the system flooded the basement during a really wet spring.

The wet spring coincided with a system failure, so the likelihood of that happening is extremely low. Something worth considering though.
