Any pond whatever the size
and whatever the design will benefit from having clean,
clear, healthy water.
A garden pond with plants, wildlife
and fish, will flourish if the water is clean and healthy.
A formal pond with crisp lines will
be enriched if the water is clear.
Ponds where the fish are the priority
need water that is perfectly clean, clear and healthy.
The secret to a clean clear pond
which can provide a healthy environment for your fish
is that there is a simple solution, a solution that
we have spent 15 years refining.
The simple way to achieve this is
to install a pond management system that is equal to
the task. At Hozelock Cyprio we have developed all the
products necessary for you to plan such a system. This
guide clearly explains the functions and the benefits
of the products, and why you need them.

Unlike lakes and rivers, ornamental
garden ponds are generally of small size with limited
depth. Therefore they can warm up more quickly than
natural bodies of water; they also have greater sunlight
penetration and a higher concentration of nutrients.
These conditions stimulate the growth of algae, which
causes greenwater problems.
Compared with natural ponds,
garden ponds are usually heavily stocked with fish,
which are fed more than they would normally find to
eat in their natural habitat. Fish produce waste in
proportion to the amount of food eaten. This waste is
both solid and dissolved; this pollution is increased
by the decomposition of plants and uneaten food. If
these waste products are not removed they will eventually
poison your fish.
Both green water and pollution
can reduce the level of oxygen in pondwater. However,
relatively high concentrations of oxygen are necessary
to support healthy fish. The introduction of air into
pondwater i.e. aeration, raises and stabilises the level
of oxygen in the water. In addition the turbulence created
by aeration will remove toxic gases.
Hozelock Cyprio has developed
all the products necessary for you to eliminate or control
these problems, allowing you to enjoy your pond all
All these improvements will clearly
give your fish a healthier environment.
