Hi cbprov

If I understood your request properly, all I can say is oh c_ _ p. First thing you need to know is the tonnage of the geothermal system being used. You will need to purchase a 600 ft roll of 3/4" geopipe for each of these tons. Then you will need the appropriate manifold for this. You will need about a half dozen water proof cinder blocks and about 100 feet of poly rope. It sound like you already have the 1 1/4" pipe to the pond. But you are going to have a bunch of it left over when you get this right. You will want to use fusion joints on this system. You don't want any pond contamination in this system. Geothermal was my specialty when I still did this kind of work, I unfortunately have seen worse scenarios than your situation.

Good luck
Rusty

Hello cbprov,
If you get the time ( LOL like any of us diy ers have time!) check out similar threads onthis site. I found archiving this site that #carrierman doesn't sugar coat his words, shares what he knows, and is generous with his experience. Good luck. Thanks. Cliff
