CLARITY PRO TIP:
Since there are many different definitions of “hybrid pond” among pond builders, make sure you know what you are looking for. Some builders do not deal with hybrid ponds at all. At Clarity Ponds, we do! And we will work with you to understand and create exactly what you want.
Koi fish add a bit of liveliness and vitality to any water feature. Enjoying their antics, feeding them, and watching them grow is sure to become a favorite pastime for the whole family.
If you want to enjoy raising koi fish but prefer a natural-looking pond, a hybrid pond is the answer. It combines the functionality of a dedicated koi pond with real boulders beneath the water’s surface to create a unique water feature.
While pond builders differ on hybrid pond definitions or leave them out of their services entirely, Clarity Ponds is one of the few builders in the St. Louis region skilled in hybrid ponds.
The hybrid ponds designed by Clarity Ponds are different than any others we build. Instead of gravel, we use large boulders and an EDPM rubber liner. This makes the walls of the pond look more like a natural environment. Second, and most importantly, hybrid ponds need a completely different type of filtration system. This creates the perfect environment for your koi with the best level of water clarity possible.
The Complexity of a Hybrid Pond
Koi and other fish can live for years, but they are also delicate creatures. They can not survive or thrive without special care taken to provide them with the right environment. A hybrid pond creates that environment for them.
Clarity Ponds has years of experience with koi and various pond life and can build an appropriate habitat where they all coexist. This involves an intricate plan that takes into account proper depth, building materials, pumps, and filtration systems.
