Blagdon Affinity Half Moon Pond

The Affinity Octagon and Half Moon have been around for a number of years now and have proved to be a very popular product and it's not suprising why.

An above ground pond which can be moved if you ever decide to have a change around or move house then it can come with you. They come with a filter to keep the water clean and windows so you and your children can see the fish from the side, something you wouldn't normally be able to do with a pond.

UV Clarifier Included as Standard

An added bonus with the new Affinity Octagon and Affinity Half Moon Ponds is that they now come with the 5 watt UV Clarifier as standard so no extra cost and you'll be keeping your water both clean and clear from the get go.

The UV clarifier will kill green water suspended algae and your Inpond filter will pick this up and break it down so you don't need to worry about 'pea soup green water' which was a problem with the previous models if you didn't opt for the clarifier.

A Nicer Finish to the New Affinity Ponds

The new version of the Affinity ponds also have a nicer finish to them, with anodised black aluminium rails to give them a more 'finished' look and mocha weave, even the viewing windows look better too. As before the Half Moon comes with a waterfall which runs off the filter pump and creates a beautiful sound, the Octagon does not but it is a larger pond and due to its symetrical shape could be a great centrepiece. 

Blagdon Inpond Filter Also Supplied

The filter pump supplied with both ponds is the Blagdon Inpond All-in-One 1400 which is capable of handling ponds up to 1,400 litres, just over 300 gallons which is more than enough as the largest of the two, the Octagon is just under 500 litres.

It's easy to set up and maintain, the filter media consists of polymer wool, foams and ceramic media which all work to keep the pond clean, clear and healthy - making it the ideal habitat for fish.
