I represent the local HOA. We have a storm water retention pond with a broken down fountain that needs replaced.
You in the business to do this?
We mainly handle residential systems. If you could provide any other details about the issue you are having with the fountain; we may be able to help further. Please contact Lynn, our Service Manager, at 253-922-7075 ext. 308 and he will be able to assist you!
We have a waterfall rock bed water feature with just a submersible pump. There is no filtration system.
Leaves blow into the rocks and water below it where they can't be reached by the blower. Is there anything we can add to the water to maintain the water quality as these leaves decompose?
Yes, you can control the amount of "sludge" or decomposing matter by adding a product called Aqua-One All Season Sludge Remover. It is an all natural microbial treatment for use in ponds or water gardens that enhances the health of your pond by reducing phosphates and oxygen-depleting sludge.
Hi John, I'm in the process of buying some property. Can you please tell me if I can build a pond and/or water feature in an area that the former owner dug out - but that only holds water seasonally? The hole he's dug is about 10' deep (only for about a 5' diameter) with a full diameter of about 30 or 40 feet getting progressively shallower in most areas - steep in one area. In the summer there is groundwater just below where he's dug the deepest hole. In the winter, however, the pond overflows and follows a rivulet into another depression - where it then seeps into a large bog-like area. I'm afraid of putting down a liner and then having it moved or destroyed by the rising groundwater level. As far as runoff, I don't see that changing how that changes anything if I don't alter anything. Thanks for the info. I appreciate it.
We would agree that it is likely that the groundwater will rise and push up on the liner if installed in an area with a high water table. We would advise against a water feature in that area because of the groundwater issue. Hope this helps!
