Let's talk pond options!
"Pond option" is a very broad term...let's see if we can narrow it down a bit. First, we have the accessories that are integrated into an ecosystem pond such as aerators, pond lights, heaters, automatic cleaners, etc. Then there is an entirely separate set of options regarding the entire outdoor living space including patio and that outlines your ecosystem pond. Finally, there may be other options to consider in your budget such as predator control, rainwater harvest system, fish care, and water care.
Pond care should be relatively simple. In order to ensure that is stays that way our team normally recommends either one of the following automatic water clarity systems.
The Aquascape Iongen
The IonGen is a Incredible Device for Any Pond or Pondless Water Feature. It is an Electronic Algae Controller that Keeps Your Water Crystal Clear! So Instead of Spending Your Time Maintaining Your Wonderful Water Feature You Can Spend it Relaxing Next To it, Just as the Lifestyle Was Intended.
- Gives You Crystal Clear Water
- Drastically Reduces Pond Maintenance
- Eliminates Unsightly Water Conditions
- Safe For Fish and Plants
- Non Toxic to Animals that May Drink From the Feature
- Energy Efficient (Less Than $1 a Month in Electric Cost)
The IonGen is Designed With a Microprocessor that Sends a Signal to an Ion Producing Probe Helping to Control Algae Throughout Your Entire Water Feature. The Probe Releases a Calculated Mixture of Copper, Silver and Zinc Ions into the Path of Flowing Water. The Automatic Control Panel Sends Signals That Slowly Dissolve the Replaceable Metal Probe. This Unique Combination of Metal Ions Increases Water Quality, Clarity and drastically reduces Time Consuming Maintenance.
The Automatic Dosing System
- Use to automatically add water to features when needed
- Reduces time-consuming maintenance versus manually filling with a hose and helps protect pump from running dry
- It is better for pond ecosystems to add small amounts of water as needed, eliminating large water chemistry swings
The Bottom Aeration System
Aquascape Pond Aerator systems effectively oxygenate ponds, helping to keep water healthy, clean, and clear. Every process that occurs in ponds is dependent on oxygen. This is especially important in warmer temperatures or at night when plants are not converting sunlight into oxygen. Aeration can also be used during cold winter months to keep a hole open in the surface of the pond, aiding in de-gassing.
Water Feature Lighting
Pond, Waterfall and Fountain lights are available in a variety of styles and are simple to install. Depending on the positioning of the lights they can be used to illuminate the area from underneath the water or placed to cast a reflective ambiance on the water surface providing a incredible view when the sun goes down.
LED Spot lights are a go-to for most Water Features. They are ideal for highlighting waterfalls, decorative fountains and other focus point in and outside of the water. They Typically come in 3 bulb options consisting of 1, 3, and 6 Watt bulbs. Also the LED Waterfall and Up Light is Small and easy to tuck into small places, they can be used inside or around waterfalls, under overhangs or behind cascading water. For decorative fountain owners the LED Fountain Accent Light is great for creating a shimmering affect with the Water.
