Blagdon Affinity - a pond in under an hour
Want a pond in your garden but can't be bothered digging a hole and cutting pond liner? Say hello to Blagdon Affinity pond.
The Affinity Octagon is a free standing feature pond water feature that is perfect for smaller gardens or patios. It has rattan weave panels that will look great with your garden furniture and viewing windows so you can see your fish swimming about. The pond includes three attractive fountain feature heads, a combined pump and filter and now comes in many shapes and sizes including half moon, and with a waterfall feature.
The Blagdon Affinity 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 affinity ponds eight sides, the pre-cut, pre-shaped liner just fastens inside. The pump comes with filter, LED spotlight, fountain heads and optional UV clarifier. All you have to do is set the fountainhead to the right height you want and choose which fountain effect you want. The filter keeps the water clean year round, provides soothing moving water as well as effective biological filtration to break down fish waste and keep the water healthy for aquatic life.
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),
