About 10in on the right side, maybe 14in on the left to go. 😑 Not level. So close. I may need to use the old liner to cut a strip to glue onto the right side, to raise it level.

Lowes had jacksquat in stock...
Need to order online and/or wait.
Need a bunch of adapters for the filters. 20ft of 2in pvc pipe. A few 2in elbows. A few check valves and cut off valves.

Didn't lay out liner quite right and walls need raised a few inches on right end. Will use old liner to glue onto it to fix that next year.
Remembered that my well water comes out with some nitrates, so I started moving the plants over. Need to drain old pond 1ft to expose the shelf the plants sit on. Once a bit dry, they'll be a tiny bit easier to rope and drag out.
Local store was out of pipe and most fittings I need. Will have to figure out which others have it and then drive out for them.
There's a 5 degree difference in temp, but waiting until the first filter is set up before moving a few fish over.

Moved more plants. Two huge ones left and then the bog plants.
Need to make hook over baskets of sorts to hold the plants along the walls.

Removed some dirt from the left side.
More rain tonight and tomorrow. Put plastic down over the dirt on it until I can do more work on it.

Bought most of the parts I need for the 2nd filter. Will try piecing it together while it rains.

Need to order the media for the 2nd filter. And need to figure out how to put in little drain lines for each, as scooping it out is a hassle.

Boy, do I hate rain.
Got a drain going now.
Don't think I'll move fish in this year.
