Who’s the Pond Informer?
Hey, there! Welcome to the Pond Informer community.
I’m Chris. A professional pond consultant by day, and someone who just loves writing and sharing knowledge with other hobbyists by night! Below is a picture of my backyard pond so you know I’m a real pond person and not just a make believe one (you can also find the occasional pic on my instagram!):-
A Little Background..
Growing up my family has always had garden ponds, and I think I spent more time around goldfish and koi than I did regular household pets. Along the way, I managed to pick up a load of practical pond keeping experience, and it was this knowledge and constant exposure to the hobby that really sparked my deeper interest within the industry. Now, I work professionally as a pond consultant and technician, offering services such as water quality testing, equipment installation, repairs, and general cleaning and maintenance. I’ve been doing this a while, and it’s safe to say, I really love what I do!
Why a website, though?
Pond and fish keeping are fantastic hobbies, but I feel that the majority of information on the web is stuck in the past. It’s not always easy for new pond owners to find updated information online, and this problem is only emphasised by the large amount of questions I get asked when speaking to clients on a daily basis. Essentially, I feel the hobby needs a new look and some fresh insights, and with it a new place to gain information, recommendations, and maybe even some new friends along the way.
I also really enjoy writing in my spare time, so it just made sense to combine one hobby with another!
And that’s pretty much it. Not much else to say except I hope you find the articles here useful. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment!
Happy pond keeping ~

Affiliate Disclaimer (paying the bills)
Pond Informer is a hobby built on an existing hobby which I deeply enjoy. I write here in my free time, but it still costs money to maintain and manage the website. You’ll find in some articles I may link to external store fronts where I may have recommended a particular product. If you decide to purchase any of these products using the links, I’ll earn a little commission which goes towards website up-keep, hosting, maintenance, and future growth. Never will I recommend low quality products for the sake of it, and will only link to quality items that I’d personally use myself. If you happen to buy using one of the links, that’s great! If not, no worries. So long as you have found something useful here which helps in your daily life, I’m very happy.
