Aquascape Designs, Inc. ProPond Ecosystem. They have patented
a pond philosophy that Mother Nature approves.
Aquascape Designs, Inc. Ecosystem has 5 elements that work with
nature to keep water crystal clear:
- MECHANICAL AND BIOLOGICAL FILTRATION:
These elements help filter the water and keep debris
out so water stays clear.
- PUMP AND PLUMBING:
Recirculation of a water garden is essential to add
oxygen to the water for fish and bacteria.
- LINER AND UNDERLAYMENT:
To maintain a 0% water loss, and impermeable membrane
is mandatory for water gardens. Furthermore, the woven
underlayment allows gases to escape and unlike sand
the underlayment will pad the liner even on vertical
- ROCKS AND GRAVEL:
These important elements are instrumental in protecting
your liner from harmful ultraviolet rays as well as
helping to prevent hydrostatic bubbling. Rocks and
gravel throughout the bottom also provide the perfect
substrate for bacteria to colonize thereby keeping
PLANTS, FISH, AND BACTERIA:
Plants remoe nutrients from the water for their own
nourishment. Fish eat insects and in turn fertilize
the plants. Beneficial bacteria eat the nutrients that
feed green water, therefore keeping the pond clear.

Eliminating any one of these variables, by attempting to cut
corners, will increasev maintenance and decrease water clarity.
By establishing a working ecosystem you will work with nature
instead of against it.
