Ponds are more work and more play. If your pond is at least 18″ deep, you can add in a certain amount of fish. Ponds also have more room, which means you can add in more aquatic plants. You will want to have a good amount of space if you’re installing a pond. With the average-size pond being 10′ x 15′, it’s best to have more than that available so people can walk around your pond. Don’t worry about people falling in, you can make your pond safe for anyone. It may be more to maintain, but you can get more varieties of enjoyment from a backyard pond! Now let’s go over pondless water features.
Maintenance of pondless water features is a lot easier than with a pond. Since there are no fish and few to no plants, you can use chlorine tablets to filter the water without harming anything. Chlorine can help prevent algae and make the water clearer than a pool. If you don’t want to use chlorine, try installing an IonGen G2 for algae control. Pondless water features are a popular choice when trying to save space.
