ADDING THE WATER:

 

The easiest way to determine the volume of a pond is to record the water meter before and after filling it.  If possible, avoid using household water during the filling process.  If this is not an option, refer to “Volume of a Pond (US gallons)” (see page 53).

 

Once you have added fresh water to a newly built pond, allow it to sit for 24-48 hours before adding plants or fish.  During this time, the water will undergo an “aging” process whereby healthy bacteria begin to colonize, the water warms up, the pH (acidity/alkalinity) of the water balances, and the chlorine, chloramines and heavy metals present in fresh water have evaporated.  Use this time to place stone and rock around the pond.

Tip:  Regardless of whether you add fresh city water or well water to your pond, always use CrystalClear® Vanish™ PLUS (see page 40) to neutralize chlorine, chloramines, heavy metals and copper.
