The “My Natural Pond” Story
Years ago when I lived in England my pond was always plagued by algae. I tried many products with little success and was always worried some might kill my collection of fish. Then I discovered a safe natural product called AQUAPLANCTON.
It was a little messy to use as it is a fine white powder that turned my pond water milky for seven days before settling to the bottom. Over the following six weeks my pond became crystal clear. It even helped eat through the muck that was accumulating inches deep at the bottom thus helping me avoid annual pond clean outs.
Ten years ago my family moved to Vista near San Diego and there in our new house we had two ponds and both had green algae. I could not find AQUAPLANCTON so I contacted the company in the UK and they said no one in the USA was selling it. As I had years of experience in distribution and marketing I offered to be the exclusive retailer of this product here. Now, eight years later with thousands of sales and many repeat customers we hope to help all pond owners with algae problems beat this awful problem naturally. Starting in 2021 in addition to AQUAPLANCTON for small to medium size ponds we will be offering some other natural products for use in very large ponds and lakes.
Three years ago we added a range of solar pond pumps and fountains. Many people have no access to electricity or they find their electricity bills too high. These solar pumps have proven to be very reliable and many people have improved the health of their ponds using them. For some people it has meant they can start a pond project for the first time.
For most of 2018 we researched pond aerators. These are mains powered air pumps that sit outside of the pond and pump air down tubes to a diffuser that sits on the bottom of a pond generating a vortex of bubbles that oxygenate the water. Some ponds struggle to overcome algae issues until the water is oxygenated. A simple waterfall barely achieves this. Most air pumps leave you to find the correct components including a manifold, tubing and the hardest part – the diffuser to complete the installation. Get any component wrong and you may shorten the life of pump, waste money and reduce the oxygenation your pond needs. Our range are complete kits are optimized to maximize efficiency with nothing else to buy. Minutes after opening the box you can be up and running.
