The Product of the Year 2012 Challenge yielded two outstanding winners, one in each major category – Pond Equipment and Pond Product. Both products are new and unique additions to the industry.

**Pond Equipment** went to **The Helix Pond Skimmer**, developed by The Pond Digger, Eric Triplett. He had wanted to see a new skimmer for the pond industry for a long time. Finally, with his years of accumulated experience installing, working with, and understanding how skimmers work, he was determined to find a way to create a new design.

**Pond Product** was given to **Cavoy Vaccine** distributed by Novartis Animal Health. The Koi Herpes Virus (KHV) outbreaks have caused thousands of koi deaths in the USA. With the Cavoy vaccination, there is now a preventive option to reduce the risk of the disease. This vaccine is approved by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

We would like to thank all the people who nominated products online on our website. There were over a hundred different products nominated.

Congratulations to this year’s Product of the Year winners.
