Laguna: Small Pond Pumps and Supplies
Having a backyard pond provides a source of tranquility and gentleness in your home, with fresh and appealing fish and and aquatic plants, glassy reflections, water for wildlife, and the relaxing view. If you want to build a small backyard pond, all you need are sand and liner. Apart from liner and sand to make a small backyard pond, you also need to ensure that the pond water is fresh and clean by investing on filters, plants, and pumps to remove and recycle waste, increase oxygen levels, and provide shade, and create a hardscape edging with the use of pavers, stones, and other building materials. The different edging materials may include stones, bricks, or pavers made of slate, sandstone, or granite. Pond plants help in preventing water from being offensive and stagnant, a protection for the pond liner, and helps in producing nutrients and oxygen to keep the pond water fresh.
You’ll need a waterproof liner to prevent the pond water from being soaked in the soil, and these are made of polyvinyl chloride, ethylene propylene diene monomer or butyl rubber. There are also liners made of PVC that differ in usage and thickness lasting from 7 to 50 years. Butyl rubber liners have great sun protection so they are more durable, flexible, and long-lasting than PVC liners. When it comes to other pond liner options, they include fiberglass rigid liners and semi-rigid plastic pond liners. Fish ponds need water pumps to supply enough oxygen and filters to clean pond water. Surface water pumps are suitable for small pumps, and submersible pumps may create little disturbance or noise.
A pond water pump should run for 24 hours daily to ensure that the water circulates through the filter, keeping the water clean and clear, and it is important to have a well-maintained pond, with larger ponds requiring more maintenance than small ponds for a better color, movement, and dramatic landscape element. You have to select a pond water pump that is continuous-duty model from a trusted and reputable company supplying high-quality pond products such as Laguna pumps. The two types of water pumps for ponds, one that is mounted outside the pond and one that works underneath the pond water (with better effect because it is not visible). Remember that not all water pumps include a filtration system, so it is best to shop a water pump with a filtration system to prevent fish waste and ammonia buildup which are dangerous to the health of your fish.
