Blagdon Affinity – a pond in under an hour

You want a pond in your garden but can’t be bothered digging a hole and cutting liner? Well how would you like a pond that you can set up in under an hour?

The Affinity Octagon is a free standing feature pond that is perfect for smaller gardens or patios. It has rattan panels that will look great with your garden furniture and viewing windows so you can see your fish swimming about. The pond includes three fountain displays, from a combined pump and filter.

The Octagon model holds nearly 500 litres of water – so it’s adequate space to keep the likes of goldfish. It is easy to assemble with full instructions and everything already the right size – no trimming liner and no guesswork. It even includes a screwdriver!

Once you have assembled the eight sides, the pre-cut, pre-shaped liner just fastens inside. The pump comes with filter, light, fountain heads and optional UVC upgrade. All you have to do is set the fountainhead to the right height you want and choose which fountain effect you want.

The pond includes your first planting basket so you can put your first marginals in there. Using a hosepipe the pond can be filled in about 10 minutes and it can be dechlorinated with the bottle of Blagdon Bioactive TapSafe that comes with the pond.

Fish that would be ideal for the Octagon include the common goldfish (Carassius auratus) which can be kept with comets and shubunkins or alternatively three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus aculeatus),
