DIY Pond Kits

Designed with professional installers in mind but the weekend at heart. The DIY series is a Complete kit that's perfect as an intro to the pond life. With our Crystal Falls mid-level and serenity entry-level product lines in mind, we re-envisioned these products for DIYers looking to tackle a larger project, and for providing professional installers an affordable alternative option in building smaller ponds. 

The Blue Thumb Complete Pond Ecosystem

Biological Water Boxes - Filter harmful waste toxins from the water, keeping your pond clean and clear. Provides excellent surface area for beneficial growth while making a simple and artistic way of creating a waterfall. 

Black PVC Flex Hose - Carries water from skimmer box up to the biological waterfall box. Flex PVC is much easier to install than rigid PVC.

Rocks and Gravel - are not included but will be necessary for the complete installation of your pond. They provide additional surface area for beneficial bacteria to colonize, protects your liner from harmful UV rays and damage from animals. Plus they create a beautiful, natural look. 

Protective Underliner - A non-woven, protective underliner fabric forms a soft padding for the liner. Installs much quicker than newspaper and covers the vertical walls unlike sand. Unlike carpeting, it allows gases to escape out of the sides from the earth's soil. 

Fish-Friendly Rubber Liner - Super-strong 45-mil EPDM liner is the best choice when building a pond. Very flexible - conforms to pond's curves and slopes. 

High-Efficiency Pump - Pump sits in back pump chamber protected from clogging by nets and filter mats. Blue Thumb pumps are recommended as they will use far less electricity and are meant to operate continuously. 

Mechanical Skimmer Box - Simplifies routine maintenance by removing floating debris before it sinks to the bottom of the pond. Protects the pump and hides unsightly plumbing.
