I purchased Pond Shock from Riverdale Supply after a very informative conversation with Lynne. I have had Koi for over 20 years, and the spring set-up can always be a daunting task.
I winter my Koi inside in tanks so moving them back out into the ponds is always a little concerning. Wanting to have the water in the best condition and getting the filtration system up and running with good bacteria for biological filtration is the top priority. I have tried many products over the years to kickstart the process including using mature media from my indoor tanks.
Nothing has compared to Pond Shock, the results were amazing! Not only does it provide good bacteria, but the water clarity is perfect. I have never had the pond look so mature so fast. I am always trying different ways to improve water clarity..... this product is the easiest to use and the best results I have ever seen! NO NEW POND SYNDROME
Thanks again Lynne for the recommendation.... I am telling all my Koi friends in the area about your product.

Stock Tank Defense
Just wanted to tell you how great Stock Tank Defense has been for our horses. Normally if I can't clean the trough the water gets rancid and the horses drink minimally. In the winter it is impossible to clean the trough as it gets frozen in. This winter I started using Stock Tank Defense tablets. Wow what a difference! The horses drank 3 times what they normally do and 2 that were coughing stopped coughing. The Stock Tank Defense tablets completely eliminated the bacteria that make the water disgusting and kept the water sweet tasting for the horses. All I had to do was throw a tablet in every 2 weeks. My only complaint is that I had to haul the hose out 3 times as much to keep the trough filled. THANKS SO MUCH LYNN!

Hi Lynne. It has been awhile. We have finally done the fine-tuning of our garden and replaced flowers and plants that our local squirrels added to their menu. This is about as good as we are going to get!
Nan and I are so pleased with your water feature; it has turned out to be everything we wanted for both beauty and ease of maintenance. I had it up and running in May in a half hour, compared to a full day for our previous pond and waterfall.
By the way, we decided to leave it out for the Winter, just bringing in the pump. It weathered well. You will also notice that the leaves have turned to the intermediate brown colour. No sign yet of the final green state.
As much as we love the garden in the daytime, it is the night view that is our favourite, with the lights shining off the water droplets. With a little cognac, it is a great way to end an evening! 😆
Hope you enjoy the photos. Feel free to reuse them if you wish.
And a Happy Canada 150 Day to you.
MuckAway and Bactapur
Yes, we are very happy with the results. Fewer frogs, mostly clear and no guck. Just can't remember the two products that you sold us but they are great.
Thanks so much,
Suzanne and Martin
