    Why Choose Us For Pond Water Chemical Balancing

    We'll Keep Your Pond Or Lake Water In Excellent Condition

    With 30+ years experience managing ponds and lakes, we understand how pond ecosystems work. When a water feature is first installed there’s a natural process for the ecosystems within it. Your pond water, aquatic plants and fish all need time for everything to adjust to the new environment. We can help you balance the water in your pond and keep it in excellent condition with regular maintenance. Our experts can visit your property to assess the water, advise and carry out chemical balancing, pond cleaning and algae removal.

    Managing Pond Water Balance


    • Monitor water chemistry: PH, ammonia, nitrite, ammonia, alkalinity
    • Perform a pond water change or clean the pond as required
    • Add,  remove, trim and maintain pond plants as required
    • Skim the pond surface and bottom to remove debris
    • Add water treatments and de-chlorinator as needed
    • Remove excess algae from the pond and waterfalls
    • Monitor fish health and remove diseased fish

    Water Garden Eco-Systems


    Successful pond maintenance to create a balanced ecosystem is not easy! We carry out a number of activities to ensure the perfect chemical balance for your pond, including algae removal, the presence of which may indicate an existing natural imbalance. In addition to regular water testing and monitoring, both plants and fish should be inspected to ensure they are healthy. Luckily chemical treatments are available to stimulate improved biological filtration and ensure your pond remains beautiful for years to come.

    Water Treatments & Fish


    Water treatments vary. We usually recommend natural beneficial bacteria based treatments. Beneficial bacterial dissolves pond sludge while lowering water nutrient levels, to help control algae and improve water quality. This is very important if your pond is home to fish. Other treatments include adding salt or fish health medications and fish-safe algicides for extreme algae problems. We have the expertise to assess your pond and inhabitants, diagnose the problem, and treat it effectively.

    Pond Aeration & Filtration


    We can rectify problems and take care of pond aeration and filtration maintenance for you – both crucial for a healthy fish pond, lowering algae levels and increasing oxygen levels. Ponds can be aerated via fountains, waterfalls or pond bed aerators. Inadequate filtration results in poor quality cloudy water. We can assess your pond to check if it is adequately aerated and filtered, and / or overstocked with fish. We can advise on mechanical filtration to extract waste, and natural plant filtration methods to absorb it, or both.

    Managing Aquatic Life


    Managing aquatic life is a big part of keeping a healthy pond. Many pond owners love fish so much they overstock their pond. An overstocked pond is almost impossible to maintain without a professional filtration system. Pond plants are a great option where mechanical filtration is inadequate. Pond plants absorb excess nutrients from the water, resulting in less algae and clearer water. Ponds that use natural filtration methods can support a wide range of pond-life, including invertebrates, insects and frogs.

      The Importance Of Caring For Your Pond Water Plants

      Maintaining the eco-balance of your pond -beautifully

      Not only do aquatic plants enhance the beauty of your pond, but they also play an important role in maintaining the eco-balance of the pond by keeping it clean and clear of algae and toxins that can harm fish and wildlife. An overgrown pond can look untidy though, so make sure you keep on top of your plants and remove any foliage that is leaning or deteriorating into your pond, as this contributes to algae. Perfect Ponds have years of experience in pond plant care and pruning and will make sure your pond looks great all year round.

      Using Plants To Control Algae


      • Plants absorb and consume nutrients and blocks sunlight to create shade which keeps water temperature down, which could otherwise promote the growth of algae, and green water.
      • Plants filter water naturally by trapping sediment, reducing nutrients, nitrates and phosphates, and breaking down toxic compounds and pathogens to combat algae growth.
      • Plants supply oxygen (a by-product of photosynthesis) to your pond as well by keeping water temperatures down (and oxygen in) through shading your pond from direct sun.
      • Floating plants also provide shelter for fish from predators, from heat in the summer, the cold in winter and provide natural material on which a variety of pond inhabitants might spawn.
      • Water plants are extremely beneficial for fish and other wildlife because they produce more oxygen in the water as a by-product of photosynthesis, which help your fish breathe.

      Balance In Your Water Garden


      Water plants with deep root systems trap harmful toxic compounds and carbon dioxide before breaking down these pathogens and excess nutrients to release oxygen back into the pond. Aquatic plants that have high nutrient uptake will be extremely helpful to clear up your pond. Use floating and submerged plants in combination to produce oxygen while limiting the development of algae. Aquatic plants that float on the surface provide coverage and areas for the good bacteria to grow.

      Choosing Plants For Your Pond


      Plants offer a simple, natural solution to boosting pond health and enhancing its beauty. It’s important that your pond has a good balance of plants offering a variety of flower colour and foliage at different times of the year, both for your pleasure, and for a successful pond ecosystem. Consideration should also be given to height, spread and depth of water they prefer when choosing plants.  Pond plants are categorised as submerged plants, marginal or bog plants, floating plants, and deep water emergent plants.

      Submerged Plants


      Submerged plants grow completely underwater. They provide a great place for fish to hide from predators. Often referred to as “oxygenating” plants, they are very efficient at pulling carbon dioxide from the water and releasing beneficial oxygen after photosynthesis. Oxygenating plants do not require fertilising; they use the excess nutrients already present in your pond water.

      submerged pond plants - elodea
      marginal bog plants - Lysichiton Americanus

      Marginal Or Bog Plants


      Marginal and bog plants are aquatic and semi-aquatic species that grow well in shallow water or saturated soil around pond edges. They improve water quality by providing natural filtration through extracting and breaking down excess nutrients, toxic nitrates and other waste products from the pond environment before they can accumulate.

      Deep Water Emergent Plants


      Some of the most well-known and recognisable pond plants come from this group, which includes Water Lilies. Deep water emergent plant roots grow deep underwater in planters on the pond bottom. Leaves and flowers emerge and spread appearing to float upon the surface, providing fish and other inhabitants with shade and cover from predators.

      deep water emergent plants - water lily
      flating pond plant - water hyacinth

      Floating Plants


      Floating plants that simply sit on the surface of the water provide oxygen. Floating plants use nutrients from the water, competing with algae to improve water clarity by absorbing excess carbon monoxide that would cloud the water. Their roots drift below the surface and act as filters. Rapid growers, they provide surface cover, shade, and hiding places for fish making them extremely important in keeping a healthy water garden.

        Are Your Fish Healthy Or Gasping For Breath?

        What's The Worst That Could Happen?

        For fish enthusiasts with a beautiful fish pond, the worst thing that can happen is for your fish to become diseased, threatening your whole fish stock. Perfect Ponds are very knowledgeable about fish ailments. Whether you’re experiencing a full-on pond emergency or are just starting to see the onset of fish problems, let us help you tackle the problem quickly and effectively. We can identify disease in your fish, rectify immediate urgent problems, and advise you on basic pond care to avoid similar problems in future.

        6 Common Fish Problems That Could Affect Your Pond

        Lightbulb moments - ah so that's what that xxx is stuck on my fish!!!

        We arm you with the knowledge and resources you need to identify the most common fish ailments and ensure an optimal living environment for your fish – from goldfish to Koi. Here they are – in no particular order.

        fish bacteria

        Bacterial Infection


        If your fish are having a bacterial infection they may appear lethargic and display a lack of appetite. Their colour may also become pale, and it’s highly likely that you’ll see skin ulcers or skin haemorrhages on your fish. Although most bacterial infections can be treated effectively, you must not neglect the symptoms.

        Anchor Worms


        Have you seen tiny green or red worms attached to your fish? Or have you spotted ulcers on your fish? If so, this may be a case of anchor worms. Your fish may also look like they are having difficulties breathing as well as performing constant rubbing or flashing.

        fish anchor worms
        fish fungus

        Fish Fungus


        Have several of your fish died simultaneously in your pond? Or have you noticed that your fish look stressed and have mucus-looking substance on their gills? This could be caused by fungus. Another tell-tale sign of fungal attack is when your fish change colour.

        Fish Parasites


        There are a number of symptoms that can provide evidence of the fact that skin parasites are hurting your fish. Look out for lethargic-looking fish,  frequent gill movements, ulcers and sores, or a milky look on your fish. If you notice any of these, it’s possible that you have harmful skin parasites in your pond.

        fish parasites
        fish lice

        Fish Lice


        If your fish seem to display heightened stress levels and constantly rub themselves against objects, this can mean that you have a case of fish lice in your pond. Fish lice will also cause fish to develop open wounds as well as tiny black or red spots on the skin.

        Fish Viruses


        If your fish have an enlarged spleen or kidney, develop lesions on their gills, display ascites (a distended or swollen body with protruding scales also known as Dropsy due to a build up of fluid in its body cavity and internal organs), or a darker change in skin colour, these are all signs that can point to a possible case of virus attack on your fish.

          Why It's Important To Keep Your Pond Water Clean

          Is Your Pond Water Crystal Clear?

          Ponds and water features are a great way to make the most of your garden. It’s well known that proximity to water, especially running water, has a relaxing and therapeutic effect. But along with its benefits, ponds can also have problems, the biggest of which for most ponds is algae and an accumulation of leaf debris, which not only looks unsightly, but can also be damaging to fish and wildlife. When ponds aren’t kept clean, the fish can become diseased, your water clarity and quality will degrade and algae will thrive, robbing your plants of nutrients.

          Is Your Pond Water Green?


          Regular pond cleaning will keep it free of algae growth and a build-up of leaves and debris. The frequency of pond cleaning required for a healthy pond and to keep algae and debris in check depends on the size of pond, number of fish, filtration system installed and amount of debris. Some ponds only need an annual clean, while others need quarterly cleaning. Generally you can tell if your pond needs cleaning just by looking at it. If you have a build-up of debris or your water cloudy, it’s probably time it was cleaned.

          Koi Pond Cleaning & Care


          Dedicated koi ponds are designed with specialist filter systems that, when specified and installed properly,  rarely need cleaning. However, a water garden with too many fish and less than optimal filtration may need cleaning twice a year! We offer professional advice and will work with you to determine how often your pond needs cleaning, and if possible how to reduce the frequency. We also advise you on water chemical balancing and water treatments if your pond is stocked with fish.

If you already know what your ideal pond should look like, great! Not only can Perfect Ponds create it for you, but we’ll also aim to exceed your expectations to make your dream pond a reality.

                Natural Pond Design


                We’re experienced in building eco-friendly ‘in-ground’ natural ponds designed to blend with their surroundings and encourage wildlife, using traditional materials such as rocks, pebbles, stone and timber. Best suited to a country garden environment, natural pond styles include:

                • Bog and water gardens
                • Wildlife and plant ponds
                • Water gardens and streams
                • Cascading waterfall rockeries
                • Specialist Koi and deep fish ponds

                natural rock waterfalll pond
                formal Koi pond

                Formal Pond Design


                Urban gardens often lend themselves to more contemporary styled formal ponds, characterised by geometric circular or rectangular outlines, built using materials such as slate, marble, brick, metal and glass, with innovative designed fountains or spills. Formal pond styles include:

                • Pondless and wall waterfalls
                • Ornamental ponds and fountains
                • Raised, sunken and split-level ponds
                • Formal ponds set within patio / decking
                • Specialist Koi ponds with professional filtration

                Large Lake Design & Build


                Perfect Ponds also builds new large lakes. If you’ve got the space and would like to add a lake to your grounds, we provide a complete lake construction and maintenance service, including design and build, filtration / bog planting, aeration, water treatments, fish stocking and aftercare.

                • Lake design, planning and construction
                • Lake aeration, fountains and geysers
                • Natural swimming pond lakes
                • Lake dredging and aftercare
                • Lake water treatments

                    Pond Services Customer Feedback

                    “Not just a maintenance man, Rob is creative and has a good understanding of water chemistry. I work closely with him and I’m always confident that my customers receive the best service possible!”
                    – Fathoms Aquatics


                    “I’ve worked with Rob myself on many occasions. He’s a very skilled and hard worker with a lot of knowledge to boot! Reliable, easy to talk to and a great sense of humour. Any pond built or designed by this man will be aesthetically pleasing, functional and easy maintenance. He’s the only guy I would recommend.”

                    – Dean W Molley

                    “I decided when moving to my new property it was time to have the pond feature I’d always wanted. I was recommended Perfect Ponds by a local aquatics company and got in touch with them. After a long conversation with Rob Lee, the company, I had several ideas and different methods of how to make the pond I wanted. Rob sent me a couple of plans to choose from, complete with pricing. The job was completed in a fair timescale and my pond is absolutely perfect. Rob and the team left my garden just as it had been before they came.”

                    – Mr McIntosh, Leighton Buzzard


                    “After having a pond designed by another team a few years ago and having nothing but problems with it, I decided to call Perfect Ponds in to try and fix it as they were recommended to me by a friend. Rob and his team came in and not only fixed all the problems I was having with the pond but also left it exactly how I wanted it to look in the first place. Rob couldn’t have been more helpful with his advice and sharing his options of ways to go forward and was not pushy at all.”

                    – Thank you so much Mrs Wright, Milton Keynes

                    “Before Rob and his team came in to clean my pond it was absolutely thick with muck and overgrown plants. I had no idea how many fish I had in the pond, if any! Now my pond is as clear as clear, the plants are kept maintained by regular visits from Rob and my fish are now visible. I would absolutely recommend Perfect Ponds for any work on their ponds.”

                    – Mrs Needham
