We are interested in finding out more information about the man-made pond that was featured on the latest episode of Cool Pools. We are especially interested in the "bacteria rocks" that were used as part of the cleaning system. We liked the pond idea, too, because the water would not have to be drained every winter. I'm not having very good luck with finding information online, so would appreciate any advice.
gee i'd like to hear about those rocks myself!
we started with a kit about 10 years ago from sams club! (have never seen it offered since) but all the pieces the upper and lower plastic ponds are at the big 2 box stores...we have a filter (not so great) a circulation gizmo for a tiny waterfall...and we've had a bubbler...we started with the pond then one vacation came home to NO fish! seems a blue heron decided he wanted ours!(we buy $1 or less gold fish and they are amazing..in no time look like koi!
that lead to a picture from sunset magazine, which we copied to cover the fish (tall enough to look like a small gazebo) it got to hard to bring the fish in...we visited a local garden center and found floating pond heaters (we're in se mi) we actually still have the circulation going although the top does partly freeze...we also made a mesh cover for the fall/winter, to keep out leaves...
have had a frog or 2 take up residence once in a great while but haven't had any other critters...
hey did a quick search (couldn't find bacteria rocks) but did find this article...
