HEALTHY WATER BREEDS HEALTHY FISH

Clean filters when dirty and change UV bulb annually.

If you have a large pond with fish pump must be fitted on a ledge 12 – 18″ below water level. In the winter fish go to the bottom of the pond where water is warmer. This helps to keep their immune system healthy.

Keep pump operating on all year round. The volume of water going through the filter prevents freezing in our climate.

When installing a filter where there is no waterfall, the pipe from the filter needs to be above the water so that it can splash into the water. This helps to oxygenate the water.

Do not overstock with fish or plants. Too many fish cause too much waste and too many plants will take oxygen out of the water.

Feed fish with good quality floating food. Only feed as much as can be eaten in 5 minutes. After 5 minutes scoop away any uneaten food. Uneaten food can cause dangerous toxins and can form a soap like scum on the water.

When adding any pond treatments or fish medicines turn the UV off because the UV will render them useless.

We now stock all Pond Doctor treatments to keep ponds and fish healthy. Products are available for small ponds to professional fish keepers.

CLEANING & CARE

To keep a pond healthy it is important to check water quality. You can check the PH Value, nitrate, nitrite and ammonia levels with quick and easy dip sticks.

There are various products available to correct these balances.

POND VACUUM CLEANERS

Use our pondvac or multipurpose Bermuda Pondi to quickly and easily remove debri from the bottom of you pond.

If you have debris on the surface of the water such as leaves, use one of our skimmers to keep the surface clear to prevent leaves dropping to the bottom and contaminating the water.

Here at Nailsea Patio Supplies we have many different types of pond lighting. There are LED lights for underwater and ground use such as the Oase Lunaqua or the Bermuda underwater lights.

Sit in your garden paradise and have a light and water jet show or have a mystmaker and light giving an eerie mist over your pond.
