Rills and Feature pond - Eastbourne

Its hard to find local specialist for pond work. That is why we travel around the country so we can proivde our speicalist skills to most places in the UK.

We loved our trip to Eastbourne!

The issues we found with the current install was as follows: 

  • Rills lost a little water throughout the year as evaporation is a common issue with concrete rills, especially with the little surface area.
  • Blanket week - keeping a contained area is the only way to treat the blanketweed. Someone else who looked at the job claimed that to attract wildlife you need blanket weed in the rills, this is simply not true. A well-planted rill, even if crystal clear will give an excellent environment for the local wildlife.
  • The pumps and current system was not keeping the rills clear. They also took up a lot of maintenance.

In this proposal we had priced to replace all the units with self- cleaning filters, which would keep the rills clear and easy to maintain. 

 

With the pond we found these issues:

  • Pond was very dirty and needed a proper filteration system. We priced for a new low maintenance filter system. 
  • Plants were overgrown and needed trimming back. 
  • A installed a better pump to run central water feature.
  • The central water feature had also disintegrated, so we installed it differently. 

To the rill we did the following:

  • Emptied and cleaned out rill
  • Lifted surrounding slabs
  • We put and underlay down and lined the rill
  • Removed brick front where filter was and re-built to create a new outlet for the pump
  • Fit filter a new pump and pipe
  • Laid the slabs back down around rill
  • Treated the ponds
  • Lastly we tested all equipment 

And for the pond we did the following:

  • Emptied and cleaned out pond
  • Fitted a new filter pump and pipe
  • Took apart the water feature and rebuilt it inorder to fit a new pump
  • Treated ponds
  • Lastly we tested all equipment
