Eric Triplett was inducted into the “Green Industry Hall of Fame” on Saturday May 2nd, 2015. Typically accustomed to rocking the pond world, this particular honor has rocked Eric’s world. While we feel this honor is richly deserved, Eric humbly continues to question if he has really contributed enough to the field, frequently heard saying, “I thought you had to be older to win an award like this?”
Eric’s recent contributions to pond filtration, the Helix Life Support Filtration line has helped dramatically reduce the annual water consumption of a pond, while still maintaining the high water quality standards required by his water features’ aquatic inhabitants. This is an especially important achievement in California’s current water-starved climate.
Eric’s career in the water feature world was initially spurred by his love for anything with scales, eventually making him a leader in the pond world. Triplett’s unique and innovative ideas in pond filtration have opened the waters for many people who love ponds, whether they are building for others or simply enjoying their own backyard oasis.
Eric loves to share all he has learned with everyone he meets. He willingly helps people start their own pond installation business and through his “Ponds For Schools” program, helps kids around the Inland Empire learn the benefits of water features in daily life. He has contributed dozens of water features to schools throughout the IE.
Loaded with tips and tricks he has learned through years of installing, Triplett’s YouTube channel is a mecca for do-it-yourselfers hoping to build the pond of their dreams. His new #asktheponddigger show is getting great reviews, thanks in part to Eric’s level headed responses to serious questions.
On the horizon for Eric is his new TV show “Pond Diggers”. More than just about building ponds, the show features Eric’s eclectic crew and provides an education in one entertaining program.
