Filling the Pond - Day 1

We struggled with whether to immediately fill the pond.   Our plan was to drain it during the rainy season when we didn't have to water the orchard and vegetable area.   The failure of the circulation system forced us to do it earlier than planned.    We thought about leaving the pond empty for a month or two.   The problem is that the pond in lined and the sun will deteriorate the liner over time as it sits empty.   We decided to start filling the pond.   We also have had some rain so we haven't been watering for a few days.   Additionally, the pond water is used to water the orchard.
