    Fishpond Safety

    Any help appreciated - I am about to let my property for the first time to non-family. The property has a small fishpond (built by my family) however where do I stand regarding my responsibilities. Should I demolish the pond, drain the pond, guard it, or get the new tenants to sign some kind of document.

    Cheers

      I had a fishpond in my back garden. As soon as I knew my first grandchild was on the way I filled the pond in and created a flower bed instead. (The great crested newt (and other amphibians) discovered during this process were carefully rehomed in the village pond....)

      A child can drown in a few inches of water so, to be honest, I would fill it in, just to have peace of mind.

        Put a fence round any children the tenants have...regardless of there being a pond or not...

          No point. They just burrow under it and escape.
