Pond Installer Walton-on-Thames Surrey (KT12): A wonderful feature when well built and correctly positioned, a pond or water feature can be an appealing addition to your garden in Walton-on-Thames. Even though you may believe this is a fairly easy job, there is much more to installing a fish pond than simply digging a hole and filling it with water, and there are a number of considerations to be looked into in particular with regards to the safety aspect. If you bring in an experienced pond installer in Walton-on-Thames they will be able to offer you advice and guidance in relation to the siting of your pond, construction techniques and materials, as well as suggestions for maintenance and care.
When deciding on the location of your pond you'll have to consider underground cabling, piping and tree roots. A swift assessment by the pond builder will determine any spots that should be avoided. It might also be important for some designs of water feature to make sure that its height doesn't go over local by-laws and regulations. A specialized tradesman should be able to reassure any worries around local regulations thanks to their experience and local knowledge.
There are particularly stringent by-laws covering garden ponds or water features which are accessible to the general public, with some local councils insisting on exacting precautions and safety features. These measures to stop potential mishaps.are particularly designed to safeguard young children who are by nature inquisitive and are frequently fascinated by water. Needless to say, it's not just the public who you need to take into consideration but also your own family members who might be in jeopardy. You definitely don't want anyone to end up drowning in your fish-pond.
In fact, the key element of the construction process is the siting of your pond or water feature. All things considered it is going to be tricky to shift it next year if it proves to be in the wrong place! If your garden area is relatively compact or has a restricted configuration, you will be limited in your options for position.
If the arrangement of your garden permits, the perfect spot for a pond is in a level, open spot (not low-lying), well-drained, south-facing, far from trees and preferably protected from prevailing winds. A further aspect to consider when you are positioning a garden pond is its visual appearance, you will obviously want to be able to view it from your house and patio if at all possible, or else it will very soon be forgotten and you'll get little pleasure from it.
The location you opt for might also determine how you will keep the water in your pond topped-up and clean, and also whether you are going to put wildlife or fish into it. Your pond or water feature also needs to be designed to prevent any ingress of water to your house in the eventuality of flooding. This may involve the building of extra drainage or spillways to divert excess water away which is a further procedure where the guidance and help of a specialist could be beneficial. Garden ponds and water features normally need some form of filtration and cleaning system to keep them in good shape and keep the growth of algae away.
For assistance with the installation of filters and pumps, along with the appropriate help and advice regarding the use of chemical products or other organic methods of keeping your pond in good condition, you should also chat to a professional pond installer in Walton-on-Thames.

Incorporating a Waterfall
Even though plenty of ponds don't feature a waterfall or fountain, there's little question that the addition of a waterfall or fountain can boost its beauty and appeal, and really make it stand out from the crowd. When all is said and done there's nothing more beautiful than the glimmer of trickling water in the sun, and not many things as soothing as the gentle sound of water flowing. Of the various available ways of adding a waterfall to your fish pond, the cheapest and simplest is through the use of a moulded plastic waterfall. Far more realistic but still quite affordable are the next kind to look at, which are made from fibre glass or polyurethane. By far the most attractive, but also most costly is the precast stone waterfall which is available in the form of interlinking sections that can be used in lengthy runs if neccessary.

Pond Cleaning Walton-on-Thames
If you've got a garden pond, irrespective of whether you keep fish in it or not, sooner or later it will need to be cleaned. Filters and pumps do a great job of sifting out most of the dirt in the water, but a certain amount will remain and result in residues in the base of your pond. As time passes these will need to be cleaned to keep your pond in tip-top health.
A complete pond clean up will require that your fish are removed, and a reputable pond cleaning service in Walton-on-Thames will provide temporary tanks for holding them while the pond is being cleared. These tanks will make sure your fish are secure and safe during the time it takes to carry out the pond clearance operation. If your pond has been neglected for a while, or perhaps has got contaminated somehow then holding any fish in temporary tanks is the only option while a drain and deep clean of your pond occurs.
In mid to late autumn it is a good idea to clear away any unwanted, excess weeds and plants that have spread over the summer, and this is also a good time to scoop up debris on the surface such as fallen branches, insects and floating leaves. Pond cleaning is also an ideal time for an expert to check your filters, pumps and liner for any potential problems that could be causing an issue for the health of your pond and fish.
