Try To Avoid Big Water Pool But Go For Mini Water Pond With Flowing Water !!!!

I was recently asked about having those big pond(s) on the roof top area.

I am totally against the idea since I have visited more than 50 BHs with these pools and nearly 90% leaks.

The water seeps through those micro cracks that are not easily seen with our naked eyes and floor the ceiling area.

They will then wet the nesting planks and once wet the nesting plank will be soaked and start breeding those fungus plus their spores.

When exposed to the fluctuating temperature these micro cracks will turned into mini cracks and soon after they will become big cracks.

When that happened your 250,000 ringgit BH will be worthless.

The only way out is to ensure that these ponds are properly made perhaps using those fiberglass box manufacturer or maybe use a mini portable pond.

What I think that will help your BH is to use a small pond about 4 feet X 5 feet X 1 foot big plastic container and try to install a floater that can regulate the water depth.

To make it more attractive to those wild birds you should install a submersible pump to push the water up to about 4-5 feet hight using a standing pipe.

Put a small tap at the bottom of the pipe so that you can regulate the water flow size.

The submersible pump need to be properly timed using a digital timer.

Run the pump for about 5-6 hours a day.  The best is during those peak hours where there are lots of visitors at your BH.

The dropping water will attract birds to come for a drink and you will be surprise to watch them coming for a sip.

They fly with little movement, similar to those Hummingbirds sipping nectar, to sip the flowing water.

This new feature will draw a bit more crowd to your rooftop as compared to your neighbors.

This is just an idea that was implemented at a BH somewhere in Kuala Kedah.
