years many pond owners we have worked with have expressed frustration
at finding real experts in the field of pond repair and revitalization.
Most consultants are employed by companies who sell products and
in many cases one pond owner can consult three pond experts and
come up with three different strategies for dealing with common
We help you choose what you need.
Does your pond
need aeration? Maybe it does maybe it doesn't but if you ask someone
who sells aeration systems they will certainly tell you to buy one
of theirs. When you use our Consultation Services we will first
help diagnose the source of your problem and then provide you with
a list of strategies for reversing the problem. We will provide
you with concrete steps to take and the recommended type of system
or products that may be needed.
With your "Pond
Report" in hand you can then be responsible for the purchase
of the required materials and proceed with restoring the pond, lake
or water garden. But before you buy anything we can help determine
if you are getting the best value for your money by also analyzing
any price quotes you receive from pond supply stores and helping
you find ways to save money.
The choice of compressors, beneficial bacteria to fight algae, the
placement of diffusers, or the restoring clarity to water and preventing
fish kills can be daunting tasks especially when many pond supply
stores are trying to sell products and often at higher prices that
necessary. Pond products of all sorts can be bought on eBay or over
the Internet but often, while prices are low, the quality might
be questionable or there may be no after-sale service offered. We
have dealt with hundreds of suppliers from retailers to wholesalers
over the past six years so we know what something should cost and
can suggest the best place to buy it.
Take pond bacteria for example. There are dozens of retailers who
sell different blends and brand name bacteria products for ponds
and water gardens so why is there a range of hundreds of dollars
in price for what appears to be virtually the same product? We've
gathered the information on what works and what doesn't and it isn't
always the highest price pond bacteria that works best. We can tell
you what cheap bacteria works and what cheap pond bacteria to avoid.
Another example we've seen time and again is aeration systems. Do
you need three diffusers? Will a linear pump work or should you
use a rotary vane compressor or a piston driven pump? If you can
get through to a real person at an aeration products company you
may be told that you need one type of pump or compressor that may
be not quite right, or overkill, or just a waste of money. There
are many variables that can add repair costs and maintenance costs
to compressors in aeration projects and it helps to be forewarned
of any issues that may arise with the particular merchandise. Different
companies will try and sell you or your company different things
and sometimes these recommendations might not be in your best interest.
Before you buy, we tell you how
to save money.
our Pond Consultation Services you are virtually guaranteed to save
money on your project. If we don't sell the products you need we
will tell you where to get them. We are just helping people with
ponds make the best of their investments. We've seen too many pond
owners being lead down the garden path by so-called pond experts
who end up overselling them thousands of dollars of products and
we are doing something about it.
is included when you hire our consultant to be your personal pond
answer is simple: we can include as much as you need. A simple answer
to a few questions can cost $20. A more detailed recommendation
and recipe for success can cost a few hundred dollars. It's more
than just answering your questions. It's being available to help
throughout the season with issues and problems of your pond.
One example: After studying the information you submit to us we
will send you a recommendation of treatment and any products that
would be required and the recommended application rate, positioning
and operational maintenance that will be required. We will then
evaluate up to three price quotes you receive and help evaluate
if there are additional ways to save money on your treatment, aeration
project or pond restoration project. We will provide a final recommendation
based on your product requirements as to where to purchase these
products whether it be an aeration system, a fountain, natural bacteria,
a water pump, windmill etc.
You will be contacted by the
Pond Report and we will begin by explaining conditions or issues
that need addressing as well as treatment recommendations and a
list of products that may be required. If you desire we can recommend
the best pond supply store to purchase any products that you may
need or any specific item you have requested: i.e.: a floating fountain,
windmill, solar aeration, pond bacteria, pond dyes etc..
Pond Report Consultation Fee is like an insurance that you will
not be taken advantage of by a pond supply store or a consultant
who makes his living by selling products. The Pond Report Consultation
Fee as an assurance that at the end of your project you know you
will have potentially saved thousands of dollars; and more importantly
you will avoid the pitfalls and costly traps that misinformation
