WhatPond has been a busy place this summer so far. And what a summer actually warm to very hot and muggy, not like last year when we only had 3 days above 80 degrees. Since the last post of my parents 50th we’ve had another party at the pond. At least this time we did not put up any tents because it was already windy. Then ½ hour before the party started the warnings came for severe thunderstorms and tornado’s. The day ended up great and a tornado did touch down but it was miles away from us. Oh the party was the July birthday party for my wife Wanda, her sister Tina, my brother Jeff and mom Jean who turn 70 this year hmmm I better leave that one alone, for now.
Finally finished up writing a book on How to Build a Farm Pond, the cool thing is it’s a down loadable book and when there are any updates or additions you’ll be notified to download again plus 2 interviews that have not been posted anywhere else.
WhatPond’s website has been rearranged a little to help those who have ponds currently and need help with their water quality and to help you when planning your new pond. A couple videos and pages have been put up about pond aeration. Starting with the Pond Fountain and showing one small power house of a fountain called the Evolution Fountain. Next up is bottom aeration. We also have another site set up where you can learn what is happening below your water’s surface and how to improve your pond water quality. Well over 2 hours of video sign up and grab a pen and paper, a real eye opener.
Coming up is a report on a new pond dye we have been testing this year and why would you add microbes (bugs) to your pond? Comments are welcome, feel free to leave yours below.
