How did the R. family end up with a Doylestown, PA Wetland Pond Filter? Patrice and Michael R. wanted their pond to be clear. They spent five years trying to achieve that goal, until AquaReale gave them exactly what they wanted. They had three different companies try to fix the pond clarity issues within five years, with no success.
The Doylestown, PA Wetland Pond Filter
When AquaReale met the family, their 20′ x 12′ pond had an external filter system. AquaReale suggested installing a wetland filter along with the external pump and filter to help clear the water.
Wetland filters work with graded gravel and plants to help trap sediment and consume excess fertilizer.
AquaReale’s Matt and Eric both worked on this project featured in the video.
About Wetland Pond Filters
Wetland filters have many uses, including being highly effective at removing sediment (suspended solids) from the pond. They also improve clarity and reduce algae, without any additional physical or chemical maintenance. Wetland filters can easily be retrofitted onto existing pond and it is possible to create a waterfall and stream by designing the wetland filter system off the perimeter of the pond
For the Doylestown, PA wetland pond filter, we also also added a bottom intake to draw the water from the bottom of the pond to get extra sediment moving and not stagnating.
The Doylestown, PA Wetland Pond Filter Challenge
The challenge for this job was trying to keep the overall look of the pond when doing the renovations. The R. family loved their pond and waterfall just as it was. AquaReale’s job was to add the bog and other water-clearing solutions while keeping the integrity of the original pond along with the shape of the waterfall.
In the end, the R. family has a clear pond and they are thrilled. “After all this time, we are finally happy with the pond,” says Mrs. R. “I wish we had known about AquaReale years ago.”
