"This is the second season (we got started pretty late in the year) that I have worked with The Pond People®. I had very specific needs for my pond. I wanted it to be clean enough that I could swim in it. Over the years I had tried many ways to reduce the algae. This year, through some experimenting, we came up with much better solutions. My pond is clear of algae and I haven't missed a day of swimming.
I find the guys to be extremely knowledgeable and professional. I'm extremely satisfied."

"Thank you for bringing my pond back to life. I’m amazed at the difference of water quality in just a couple of years. My fish are more active and we are enjoying our pond more now than ever. I appreciate your outstanding customer service and knowledge. Great job!"

"The construction of our pond presents some challenges. The Pond People® have been working with us over the past few years to overcome these challenges. It’s nice to know that we have a partner interested in making our pond meet our expectations."

"Last summer I was at my wits end with the algae and weeds in my pond. No matter what I tried, nothing seemed to work; the algae and weeds were winning. My beautiful backyard pond was now a green, ugly mess. Not knowing what else to do, I sent an e-mail to The Pond People® and asked for their help. That was one of the best things I have ever done! I talked with them and we set up a plan of attack. After a few treatments and a few short weeks, I had my pond back. The transformation from what I had then to what I have now is simply amazing - clear water, no weeds, and algae gone. The grand kids and I can enjoy the paddle boat again and the compliments just keep coming in, thanks to The Pond People®. If you have a pond, you need The Pond People®."
Carol – Boyd, WI
"In May of 2011, our pond was covered with green algae. Algae and muck growth had been multiplying over several years. Using the pond management plan designed by The Pond People®, now in August of 2012 we are admiring our pond of clear water with no signs of algae growth on the surface."
Jim & Joan – Greenwood, WI
"We had lived on our property for about two years and the pond had progressively become more choked with algae and weeds. It had become an eyesore and we thought about filling it in with dirt. The Pond People® offered to give their recommendations for how we might rejuvenate the pond. They clearly described what was happening in the pond and explained how things could be changed. They recommended a number of steps that not only made sense, but involved no herbicides, algaecides, or similar treatments. The crew efficiently and quickly implemented the plan more than a year ago and we are very happy with the results. The pond has zero visible algae and looks very healthy. They even helped out with some of the paper work that had to be submitted to the government. It was worth the time, effort, and money."
Jim – Marshfield, WI
"I have been using The Pond People® for our pond service for several years. In this very difficult season in trying to keep ponds looking nice, the three ponds they service have never looked better! I have had numerous remarks from our members on how clean and beautiful our ponds are. The staff at The Pond People® is pleasure to work with. They are very professional and knowledgeable about the products and services they provide."
Scott - Freedom, WI Golf Club Superintendent
"After many years of trial and error, much labor and constant disappointment, my husband and I were ready to give up on our pond. It was like fighting a battle every year; us against the weeds! Trying to keep the pond suitable for swimming was exhausting. I was at my wits end and then Providence stepped in. In our mailbox was a post card from The Pond People®. And then the miracle happened - what they did worked!!! They gave us our pond back! It is beautiful once again! Thank you to The Pond People®."
Laurie & Fred - Waldo, WI

Joel & Dori - Menasha, WI
"We built our pond in 2008 and were recommended to have The Pond People® come and inform us of the proper maintenance. It was one of the best things we could have ever done!

We have had plenty of quirky questions and problems and they are always willing to help in any way they can. When asked, we have no hesitation referring The Pond People®, as they are dedicated to supplying you with the information and products needed to help ensure the health and beauty of your pond!"

"Just wanted to send a comment regarding our pond. For several years you have told me to change the aerator system that I was using and I resisted thinking mine worked fine.
Yesterday I took a swim for the first time this year and noticed something entirely different than years past. As I swam around I did not notice a single thermal layer in the water. In the past, at the two foot level there was a distinct difference in water temperature. This year no thermal breaks. Even as I dove into the deeper pool, the water was consistent.
This is telling me that we are doing a much better job with rotating the water. The aerator, as well as the fountain, has greatly improved the quality of the water. Not to mention how quiet the new pump is. I cannot hear it from the gazebo - unlike the old system that provided noise pollution to my entire backyard.
I understand this is a transition year as we move away from chemicals to the natural management system you developed. That said, we are patient knowing that our quality of the pond system will only continue to improve.
Thanks for being patient with my stubbornness over the aerator."
Joe – Neenah, WI
"My husband and I first met the founder The Pond People® in late winter of 2009-10. We have a one acre pond that we were trying to keep “pristine clean” with every chemical under the sun. The pond was two years old, cloudy, and already starting to get mucky. He had left his card on our door and since we weren’t happy with the current ‘chemical people’ servicing our pond, we gave him a call. He was on time, something that is a rarity these days, and very straight forward in his ideas for our pond. We were very skeptical at first of using more “natural” means to control the pond’s health, but everything he told us made sense. I was the one that really balked at the idea of adding fish. I didn’t want something else I had to take care of. Then he pointed out that all ponds will get Blood Suckers sooner or later without fish. Euw, euw, euw (that’s a woman’s language for YUCKY!) and he was right. That spring we had huge Blood Suckers by the beach area. Long story short....everything The Pond People® have done for us has left us with a beautiful, natural looking pond that is cleaner and clearer now than we ever expected. They are always timely, honest, and willing to listen to any questions you might have. Ponds might be their ‘business’, but we’ve never trusted a business the way we do The Pond People®."
Susie – Bonduel, WI
"This pond has never looked this good and I can't wait to see what next year brings. I would assume it's credited to increased aeration and regular applications of your products. Consistency was never a strong suit of ABI. The water clarity is greatly improved and I would say the duckweed is 98% gone. Thanks for all of your hard work and have a great winter."
"I have almost two seasons of working with you under my belt and I couldn't be happier! My pond has not looked this good in the 23 plus years that we've lived here. It's a good feeling to know that I once again have fish in the pond and I look forward to planting more in the next few years."
Ray - Newton, WI
"My wife and I sold the house (and the pond on the property). I left the information about your good work with the pond with the new owners, and suggested that they continue with the pond prescription and your services. You may want to contact them to see about further maintenance issues with the pond. Once again, thank you for your help and service with the pond…the pond improved greatly; your service was exemplary."
Vydunas - Ripon, WI
"The pond looks fantastic. I read the email yesterday to your clients regarding the bad year for algae. My pond could be the poster child for your success in turning a very bad algae situation around. I still have not used more than the two gallons you mixed with me when you dropped my supplies off. Added a little dye, and just following the plan. This is the best it has ever been for the middle of June. If any clients want a testimonial to your team’s success, I am here to support you!"
Larry - Freedom, WI
"I am now a believer in what I am buying from you guys ... muck level is significantly reduced! There is no way I could've put on waders and walked several laps around the pond in waist deep water a year ago."
