Need help pond leak with no really good way to fi help pond boss forum 5 gases in the atmosphere

###########

Hi I recently finished a 3 acre pond on a new venue we are building for events and weddings.. It is an average of 25 feet deep at full pond. Due to amount of water in the pond, the county had me install a pretty large pipe system in case the pond needed to be drained. Something in the pipe system is allowing a leak of about 20 gallons per hour to leak through the pipe. This pipe flows 90 feet through the base of the dam, and then another 300 feet through a pasture and would drain into a large creek. The logic in this was if the pond had to be drained, the 12 inch underground pipe would allow the water to go into the creek without damaging what is suppose to be a vineyard.

Soooo I have been thinking that the best solution might be to just recirculate the water back into the pond. I do not have electricity available and have been looking at a solar water pump to pump water back into the pond. In research I have found a pump made by Dankoff called a slow pump that can pump water long nyc electricity cost distances through 1 inch pipe.

Install the pump,water filter, and a float valve to allow the pump to come on pump the water through 400 feet of buried 1 inch pipe back into the pond. I will build a shelter over the collection tank and pump and mount the solar panels on top. Pump will probably run about 3 hours a day. I know this sounds nuts, but I have a lot of $$ in this project and we need to get this lovely pond to fill. That being said before investing another $2500 in this system I thought I would see if anyone else has an idea. We should have power to the area in 2 years and this will open up more options.

I decided to just put a 2 inch piece of pvc in the 12 inch pipe end and then seal around it with concrete. Then I threaded a 3/4 hose end to test and see if once the 400 foot of 12 inch pipe f gas regulations filled up if there would be enough static pressure to push the water through 400 foot of hose with a 40 foot elevation. If this test worked I was going to trench in 1 inch pvc back to the pond and be done with the issue.

But a guy that I wished I had meet earlier in this adventure, suggested that this could still be problematic as the water could still look for another way escape and it could possibly be at a seam of some of the pipe through the 90 foot wide dam. I do know the guys that installed the pipe through the dam used a rubber gasket system and it should be fine, but I’m just not sure. I do not know enough about the dynamics of moving water.

But I do know that when I capped the 2 inch grade 6 electricity unit ontario pipe and came back in 2 days the 400 foot of 12 inch pipe was full and when I took the cap off it flowed like a fire hose for 20 minute before slowing down. Based on info off the internet 1 foot of 12 inch pipe holds 4.88 gallons of water, so 400 foot means there is almost 2000 gallons of water leaving my pond every couple of days, or over 6000 gallons weekly. I would prefer it be in the pond if I can figure out a way.
