Reline of Fish Pool & Creation of Cascading Waterfall

Before...

Before...

A fish pool in Watchet, Somerset, was in need of some serious attention, the level was not staying at the desired depth and there was a large built up of organic waste. The liner was perished in several places and needed replacing. The inherited a ‘waterfall’ that apparently never really worked well and contributed to more of the water loss. All in all, the fish pool had gone into disrepair and required some TLC. Luckily, DU Waterscapes are here to bring tired water features like back to life, we were called in to make this poor tired pool a focal point of the garden and a true joy to be around.

The client was fed up of looking at a murky lifeless water feature and wanted to be able to see the fish swimming around happily. The failed DIY attempt of a water fall had to be completely removed and a more naturalistic water feature was to be created to replace it, adding more interest to the back drop of this fish pond and the overall of this quant seaside space.

The fish where removed and carefully placed into their temporary home within our large holding facility. The necessary preparations was undertaken to add new protective membrane and liner. Some minor detailing to ensure the liner was a snug fit and specialist bar where used to hold liner in place. This technique was used to save interfering with the very old capping stones that could quite have easily broken up if we tried to remove them.

The old feature was lifeless and looking sorry for itself. When the water feature was revealed the client said she didn’t even think it could look as wonderful as this.  Naturally this is incredibly rewarding especially because one of our business goals is to ensure our clients are one hundred percent happy with our finished pieces.
