A garden pond for the visual interest and landscaping beauty can also be within your interest.With the correct tools and planning, you may be able to install a water pond in a few days and immediately begin to add colorful fish, rocks and beautiful aquatic plants.

For the garden pond, you need two important items: 1) A Filtration System 2) A Pond liner. Most pond liners are made from EPDM (Ethylene, Propylene, Diene Monomer ). This is resistant to cold weather and has a long life span. You may have to obtain a pond kit which will contain everything you need,plus extras such as skimmer, lightning and waterfall additions.

It is always important to follow the legal path before you establish a swimming pool. Try to obtain a permit and check local building codes. Inspection for underground water and gas pipelines should be done before any construction work. Make an indepth analysis of your piece of land and locate hidden tree roots.Consider sunlight for aquatic plants and check for leaf fall.

After installing your swimming pool or garden pond you then have to follow consistently a regular maintenance schedule.You need to keep the water clean from harmful chemicals.Keep the water level consistent, empty the pond filter regularly, prune aquatic plants and feed the fish.

16000 species of algae are ready to grow in your pond. Use algae preventive or inhibitor to control the algae.The algae inhibitor is usually a liquid which is poured into the pond near the skimmer intake.The pump distributes it throughout the water body of the swimming pool or garden pond. This controls perfectly the proliferation of algae in your pond.

You have to get rid of water soluble bather waste by shocking your pond on regular basis.The bather waste conprises of dead skin cells, body oils, sweat and cosmetics, urine etc. By shocking your pond you oxidise the water soluble bather waste and so break it down through the chemical process of oxidation.

Use the correct "Shocker" that suites your pool. Some shockers are non chlorinated and some also are chlorinated. Your choice depends upon whether your pool is chlorinated or not. You need to read the manufactures specifications and apply the correct amount to the pool.

Make an effort to replace all old pumps from the pool. New models are more efficient in their circulation power and uses less energy, hence savings on the utility bills and the quantity of the chemicals that need to be applied. Better circulation means better filtration and fewer maintenance requirements.

Check the pressure guage frequently.High pressure means unneccessary strain on the pool pump and therefore less efficient filteration system. Keep your filter very clean and know its kind. Non Chlorinated systems are also called biguianide systems. A solution of 27%hydrogen peroxide is used in purifying the water. These home improvement products which can be obtained online or in local home improvement stores.

The owner of the swimming pools should be well equiped with the various swimming pool tools for the maintenance work. It is always important to have a good knowledge of how these swimming pools are used.
