Pond Design
1

Skimmer

  • • Eliminates routine maintenance by removing debris before it sinks to the bottom of the pond which allows pond construction in any location, even directly beneath trees.
  • • Requires only two to three minutes every other week to clean while standing outside the pond.
  • • 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.
  • • The pump is easily removed by loosening one hand-tightened fitting on the discharge piping above the water line.
  • • Keeps the pump free from clogging by trapping waste in a catch area before it reaches the pump.
  • • High-density polyethylene construction assures strength with extreme durability.
  • • Patent Pending- adjustable faceplate on Signature Series has four inches of travel, enabling you to tweak out the perfect water level.

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.
3

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 (MN).

Underlayment

  • • A non-woven, needle punched underlayment forms a soft padding for the liner.
  • • Unlike newspapers, it’s quick to install.
  • • Unlike sand, it completely covers the vertical areas of the pond shelves.
  • • Unlike carpet padding, it allows gases to escape out the sides while looking more professional.
5

Plants

  • • Marginal plants can be planted directly in the gravel. Their roots will spread throughout the gravel, cleaning the pond by using nutrients and growing vigorously.
6

Bacteri

  • • AquaClearer bacteria naturally balances the pond.
7

Rocks & Gravel

  • •Contrary to popular opinion, 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 other sharp objects.
  • • The rocks and gravel also help hold down the liner during high ground water conditions and create areas for fish to hide when predators come around.
  • • Finally, a stone bottom looks farmer natural and is safer to walk on than an exposed slippery rubber liner.

Liner

  • • Strong 45-mil EPDM liner is the best choice for most pond installations.
  • • Unlike concrete, it is easy and inexpensive to install and won’t crack.
  • • When covered with stone, it has a 40-year life expectancy.
  • • If a leak ever were to occur, a simple inner-tube patch kit can make it as good as new.

BIOFALLS® Filter

  • • Creates a perfect base for building beautiful, leak-freed waterfalls.
  • • Requires only once a year cleaning when used in combination with a skimmer pre-filter.
  • • A non-clogging swirl chamber allows even distribution of water, aiding filtration and increasing waterfall width.
  • • Can be sunk into the ground for a stream effect or raised to create a greater water drop.
  • • Filter support rack holds filter mats and doubles as side supports.
  • • Simple, uncluttered design. No moving parts to break.
  • • Easy to camouflage, removable upper rack on Signature Series BIOFALLS Filter makes filter easy to disguise into the landscaping using rocks, plants and gravel.
  • • High surface area filter mats included with the Signature Series BIOFALLS Filter have 50% more surface area than traditional mats.
