Fountain and Pond Accessories

If you’re planning on adding a zen-like water feature to your backyard, chances are you’ll need a few accessories to go along with it. Items like pond liners and pond pumps are essential for keeping your pond in tip-top shape, and your fountain would be amiss without a pump, too. Other pond supplies include pond plants and pond lights, plus decorative items like bridges.

How do I decide what size pond liner I need?


A pond liner keeps your water from seeping back into the soil. These come in a variety of sizes and shapes, so you’ll need to do some simple measurements and calculations to figure out which size is right for you.

Step 1. Measure the maximum length, width and depth of your pond.
Step 2. Take your measurements and add them together using the following equations to calculate the length and width of your pond liner.

Width of liner = width + depth + depth + 2
Length of liner = length + depth + depth + 2

For example, if you have a pond that measures 15 feet in length, 11 feet in width and 3 feet in depth, you would add these measurements together like so:

11 + 3 + 3 + 2 = 19 feet in width
15 + 3 +3 +2 = 23 feet in width

So your pond liner should be at least 23 by 19 feet, though it’s always better to round up. In this case, a more standard size of 25 by 20 feet would work, and having extra material means there’s room to adjust if you make a mistake.

What kinds of fountain or pond pumps are best?


Pond pumps are necessary if you just has to have a waterfall or fountain — or if your standalone fountain is simply in need of a pump. These are also essential for creating optimal water circulation. Pump size is determined by the capacity, measured in gallons, of your pond. At the same time, the flow rate must be ample enough to recirculate your pond water about once every 2 hours. Don’t forget, if your pond is home to fish, you’ll also need a form of water filtration to go with your pond pump.
