    What are the dimensions on this pond?

  5. KittenToez says:

  7. barbarianatgate says:

    You’re correct, there are cheaper alternatives. And I’ve tried them all. Water Hyacinths, Water Lettuce, snails algae control agents, bacterial cures, name it. And how well do they work on a pond in full sun? Well, the fact that I’m on here researching UV filters should tell you! Our pond was installed by a company that I wouldn’t recommend to my enemies! Virtually no filtration, spent over $900 on pumps when we didn’t need to, came in at $28K on a $19k estimate. Built completely wrong. Get UV!

  8. olib110 says:

     if u listnd he said its a typical $10,000 pond

  9. Arteolike says:

    I expanded a little, and i chose to get a more powerful pump and a EPDM 45Mil instead of a 20Mil PVC! And a 25 foot stream and 5 foot waterfall! So it turned out MUCH more than i expected!?! I spent around $650.00 – $750.00 more than double what i budgeted, but still no were NEAR $10,000.00! I will post a video soon of the construction (Not fully finished yet) but its been so Hot it’s impossible to dig and move HUGE rocks, after work i am exhausted!

  10. dcppcp says:

    Arteolike please post a photo link to your pond for under $300… You can’t get an equipped 125 gallon aquarium let alone a 1,500 pond installation with the quality of design, equipment, lanscaping, etc seen here for $300.

  11. dcppcp says:

    I was just wondering why you didn’t install the UV/filter back where you first cut the pipe feeding the water fall? This would have made for a cleaner installation of the UV/filter without all the extra pipe and fittings to turn the pipe around.

  12. datzburier says:

    how much does it cost

  13. hothanhbinh88 says:

    can you give me the name of the filter that you use for this pond !!

  14. Mostlyfun says:

    Im a Stone Mason by trade and I would say that $10,000 seems fair and about right to have qualified contractor do this amount of work .

  15. solarpondsupplycom says:

    Cheap alternatives will give you cheap results in my experience. At PondMarket, they really know what they’re talking about. Who would you rather get advice from – your local pet store owner or PondMarket in regards to building the best pond? I’ve found that people start out putting really horrific devices together that they ‘think’ are doing the job when they’re not.

  16. Arteolike says:

    $10,000 Dollar installation! DAM! I can get a pool for that price i build my 1,500 gallon pond for under 300!

  17. thePondHunter says:

    beneficial bacteria is not a “free-swimming” or “planktonic” form of bacteria. Beneficial bacteria colonizes on surfaces, therefore they do not pass into the UV sterilizer, so the UV sterilizer has not affect on beneficial bacteria. Most harmful bacteria are suspended in the water column and can be somewhat controlled (but not fully) by the UV sterilizer.

  18. ravenyikimy9911 says:

    Those things run almost 400 bucks! Our tropical fish store in Santa Barbara tried to sell me that for my 60 gallon pond!

  19. intoxicatedpirate says:

    no or they wouldnt selll them lol

  20. pondmarket says:

    That’s a popular misconception of UVs. UVs do not discriminate in the bacteria they kill. However, in order for a UV to kill bacteria the flow rate has to be very slow. If you are using a UV Clarifier or a filter with a built in UV, the flow rate is too fast to kill any bacteria.

  21. pranksta776 says:

    dont UV’s kill benificial bacteria to? and wouldnt tht result in the death or ur fish?

  22. pondmarket says:

    You are correct dscrack. It’s an info-mercial for a UV light. And there are MUCH CHEAPER alternatives. Water hyacinths and water lettuce to name a couple of the many alternatives. The difference is that with equipment there are no algae blooms. With alternatives your water will be green at times and clear at times. The question is this: how clear do you want your water and how much do you want to mess with it?

  23. dscrack says:

    looks like a comercial for uv light… there are other cheap alternatives

  24. pondmarket says:

    Sniper, Tetra’s rating filters are conservative. We usually recommend filtering the pond with a filter that’s twice the size of the pond being filtered. 600 gallon pond needs a 1200 gallon filter for optimal clarity and minimal maintenance. Physical size does not matter. Efficiency of the water traveling through the filter and quantity of surface area does matter. We can do a $ back guarantee if you would like.
    Thanks for watchin!

    Green and brown are two things that this UV filter was built to rid the pond of. There are 3 sizes available: a 1500, 2500, and 4000. If you go to our online catalog, under “pond filters”, you can see all the details there. I can email them if you would like.
