How do ecosystem garden ponds work?
The ‘Ecosystem pond’ image above illustrates the key elements and how they play a fundamental part in any ecosystem pond.
Removes debris from the water surface and houses the pond pump and debris basket.
A biological filter that keeps pond water clean by encouraging the growth of beneficial bacteria that help remove excess nutrients from the water.
Circulates water into the Biofalls filter and back via waterfall or stream. Moving water ensures optimum oxygen levels for healthy fish and plants.
Durable sun, ozone and mildew resistant PVC pipe that connects the skimmer to the Biofalls filter.
Rocks and gravel:
Protect the pond liner and house beneficial bacteria that break down excess nutrients in the water.
Pond liner and underlayment:
The pond liner offers resistance to UV, ozone and oxidation; the underlayment protects the liner from damage from any rough ground below.
Plants and fish:
Plants provide colour and texture while reducing algae growth by removing excess nutrients; fish reduce pond maintenance by eating algae and stirring up water so that it flows into the filter.
