    I saw a thread probably a year ago, and haven't been able to find it again.

    The person posting had an enclosed are for their ducks, and at one end, they built up the ground with dirt and then used a pre-formed plastic pond in the built-up area. Thus, the bottom of the pond was actually at ground level. They added a drain, and because the pond was at ground level, they were able to easily drain it to clean/refill if needed. Also, they added some sort of pea gravel all around the pond to reduce the dirt/mud factor carried into the water.

    The person posting it showed several pictures, and I can somewhat visualize it, but would really like to take a look at it again. I'm hoping someone might remember who that was so I can search and find the thread! Thanks, friends!

    The pic in post #9 looks similar, but the pond I'm thinking of was built up into a small hill - sort of like they put the rigid pond on the ground, then added dirt all around it, sloping it away from the pond, so the pond was sort of like at the top of a hill. But this is a good start to what I was thinking - thanks, Fisher!
