Jason Lenox had the right approach when a customer asked him to include “pre-formed” tubs into a new pond design. The existing pre-formed tubs had a deep, emotional hook with this pond owner and Ponds Inc of Illinois complied by creating a new pond design.
An excerpt from the article:
There is a very touching back story to these pre-formed tubs, and they seriously meant the world to her. Without getting into personal details of their family, I can say that these tubs were installed as memorials for people close to her who had died. It was extremely important to her and for their family to have them incorporated with the new pond.
Congratulations to Jason at Ponds Inc. on winning $250 worth of Pondliner products!
This is how Jason integrated the tubs:
Back to my point: biofilters are primarily plastic boxes that are really not much different from these tubs. With bulkhead fittings and slight modifications, we could easily make these tubs into efficient biofilters disguised within the installation. And by the way, they work extremely well, I might add!
