Old fashioned service : up to date experience..

Had a silly problem with my 1 year old Oase 3500 AquMax eco. In that it is possible whilst unscrewing the external hose pipe connection from the pump to also to lossen the internal ADAPTOR which fits onto the pump, to give a lager external hose connection. (The exploded diagram of the pump in the user guide shows this as PART OF the pump, not an adaptor and thus not as an item to be purchased separately if you are unfortunate enough to loose it). Dan told me it is a 1"female to 1.5" male. I think! This adaptor was dropped, kicked or escaped, into the pond, it was not seen at any stage and could not be found. Though of course it was there. I could only guess at what it looked like. I could not have asked for better service from ANYBODY Especially under Covid 19 conditions. I travelled over 20 miles to the shop and it was well worth the journey. I'll be back...Thank you Dan

Excellent Pond Care

In March, Alfie came and cleaned my pond, which is filled with wildlife from newts to dragonfly larvae and much more. He was very careful to ensure that all the water snails, fish, etc. were removed gently and then drained the pond in steps, removing more wildlife as he went . He cleaned the pond thoroughly and replanted all of my pond plants with skill. He did an excellent job. It took the whole day, but then my pond is about 5.000 ltr. and, as I said, there is a lot of pond life, which was my main concern. He worked hard, with breaks only for lunch and for a cup of tea I made for him in the morning and afternoon. He's a friendly, knowledgeable young man and I was very pleased with the results of his work. I realize this is July, but I hadn't thought of writing a review until I used Yell to look up the phone number of the store just now. They deserve a good review. I've gotten good advice and help from the men who work in the store, as well as from Alfie when he was here.
