Pond supplies
Pond supplies come in a huge assortment and can be found on a variety of websites or in home and garden centers. When you first create a pond, it can be a little daunting trying to figure out which pond supplies are necessary and which are just extras. There’s nothing wrong with trying to create the most beautiful water feature in the world, but the issue is how much money you can spend on it. In this article, we’ll be discussing the purposes of some pond supplies and their general costs. This will allow you to make a proper budget.

Some of the pond supplies that you will need are pond filters and pumps, biological media, a liner, fish and plants, and a skimmer. Pond filters and pumps are necessary to keep your pond free from algae and other decaying matter, and to keep your fish healthy. A biological filtration system is usually not enough. This is basically using a biological media such as foam. This medium has ammonia-eating bacteria which helps to keep the pond clean. Unfortunately, you usually need aeration, as well. You will need to research which filtration system is best for your pond.

Obviously, you will need a liner when first creating your pond to keep the water from draining away. If you are going to have fish, you will also need aquatic plants to continue nature’s nitrogen cycle and have food for the fish. These are the basic necessities of a fish pond. If you live in a climate where it gets very cold during the winter, you will also want to consider getting a pond heater or a pond deicer. This helps your fish live through the winter. A skimmer is also necessary to take floating debris off the top of the pond.

There are many other pond supplies which will help you create a glorious pond, but may not be necessary. Some of these pond supplies would be special lighting, fountains, waterfalls, air compressors, etc. Though fountains, waterfalls, and lighting would be wonderful, they aren’t always necessary. It is simple, though, to create a beautiful, but inexpensive fountain or waterfall with a submerged filtration system. You can plug in the hose that extends outward from the unit into a fountain or a waterfall and create that extra beauty while using a necessary filtration system.

To get an idea of the price of these necessary pond supplies, a complete pond kit will run you anywhere from $680 up to $1000 depending on the size of your pond. Whether this is expensive or not will depend completely upon your budget. You might be able to find used supplies that are still in good condition and you can squeeze a little bit of that money off the budget. But in general, if you want a good, quality pond kit, you will need to be prepared to pay for it.
