2017 Customer Top Tips Round Up
I’ve compiled a list of my favourite top tips but I have to stress that we haven’t tested them out so if you choose to try them, it is at your own risk!
Tip 1: To stop a heron visiting, put a radio on a timer in the garden so that it will turn on intermittently.
Tip 2: Train your Koi to eat from your hand by rubbing garlic on your finger tips just before you feed them.
Tip 3: When you replace your UV Bulb write the date on the box and keep it in a safe place. That way you will have a record to work out when it needs to be replaced but you will also have the size of the bulb you need to buy.
Tip 4: Teach your Koi to come out of the water by suspending a dog biscuit just above the surface and eventually the curious/ hungry fish will swim up to eat it
Tip 5: If your pump keeps getting clogged with debris, stretch a pair of tights over the strainer cage to add a finer level of filtration.
Tip 6: Koi love to eat and if you drop a lettuce or peas into your pond they will nibble away on them as a snack.
Tip 7: If you have a problem with leaches in your pond, put some chicken into an old coffee can with holes in. The leaches will go into the can and then you can remove them from the pond.
Tip 8: If your hosetail is leaking slightly use some Vaseline around the connection to stop the leak.
Tip 9: If you’re trying to find a hole in your liner, pour a glass of milk into your pond and it will spiral towards the hole.
Tip 10: When the weather begins to freeze your pond, leave a tennis ball on the surface to stop it from freezing completely.
If you have any top tips of your own then we would love to share them. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add them to the list.
