HIGHLIGHTS
 

Skimmer:

  • Eliminates routine maintenance by removing debris before it sinks to the bottom of the pond, allowing construction in any location, even directly beneath trees.
  • Hides the pump and plumbing from view alongside your pond instead of in the pond.
  • Won't drain the pond down if a leak develops in the plumbing or waterfalls.

Plant Pockets:

  • Best way to get rid of unsightly planting containers.
  • Each pocket is about 6 deep.
  • They promote health in plant development by allowing the roots to spread through surrounding gravel.

Liner:

  • Strong 45-mil EPDM liner is the best choice for most pond installations.
  • Easy and inexpensive to install and won't crack.

Rocks & Gravel:

  • Adding rocks and gravel reduces pond maintenance.
  • Gravel, unlike a smooth pond liner, provides surface area for bacteria to colonize.
  • Covering the pond liner with gravel protects the liner from harmful UV rays and damage from animals and sharp objects.
  • A stone bottom looks far more natural and is safer to walk on than an exposed slippery rubber liner.

Underlayment:

  • A non-woven, needle-punched underlayment forms a soft padding for the liner.
  • Unlike sand, it completely covers the vertical areas of the pond shelves.
  • Unlike carpet padding, it allows gases to escape out of the sides while looking more professional.

Biofalls Filter:

  • Creates a perfect base for building beautiful, leak-free waterfalls.
  • A non-clogging swirl chamber allows even distribution of water, aiding filtration and increasing waterfall width.
  • A built-in rock ledge allows this unit to be completely camouflaged out of sight.

..................................................................................................................

Bacteria:

  • AquaClearer bacterial naturally balances the pond and S.A.B. breaks down string algae growing in the pond.

Fish:

  • Fish, like koi and goldfish, can be successfully kept, and even bred, in water that is only two feet deep as far north as zone 4.

Plants:

  • Marginal plants can be planted directly in the gravel. Their roots will spread throughout the gravel, clearing the pond by using nutrients and vigorous growth.
