Pond Design Services

We can design ponds of any size, from pondless waterfalls, water gardens or koi ponds. We will design a properly functioning, low maintenance pond with a properly sized filtration system. Although we no longer build ponds, we can recommend a professional pond installer in your area that will build your pond right.

 

Fish Health Consulting

Occasionally even the most seasoned pond keeper can have problems with sick koi. Fish disease is often linked to poor water quality, which stresses the fish enough to make them vulnerable to parasites and bacteria that are naturally found in the water. Fish that are unusually lethargic, gasping at the surface, sitting on the bottom, have their fins clamped close to their bodies, or segregate themselves away from the rest of the other fish are all signs of problems. If noticed and acted upon quickly, disasters can usually be avoided. If left untreated, serious and devastating outbreaks of parasites, fungus, ulcers or or other bacteria infections can wipe out a pond full of fish.

What we will do:
  1. Discuss the situation to find out possible causes: changes in maintenance routine, recent power outages, accidental introduction of chemicals etc.
  2. Test water quality see if something is wrong – suggest solutions
  3. Do a skin scraping of one or more fish and use a microscope to check for parasites.
  4. Recommend and dose medications

 

Filtration Upgrade Design Consultation

Sometimes the filter that once worked well, is no longer adequate for your pond. As fish grow and multiply, the increased bio-load overworks filters that may have once been adequate. Or maybe you are looking for a filter that is much easier to maintain. Whatever the situation, we can provide several different options to give you the results you want.

Water Quality and Clarity Issues Consulting

Occasionally, ponds go through stages of rampant string algae growth, poor water clarity or water quality issues. We will do a thorough inspection of the pond design, equipment, filtration, fish load, maintenance practices etc. to determine the possible causes and solutions.

We basically service anywhere within a 2 hour of Toronto / GTA. If you would like us to come and take a look at your pond please contact us via the form below.
