To Whom it May Concern:

Custom Ponds & Fountains installed the fountain equipment and plumbing system for the North Carolina Zoo's Prairie Geyser last year in a two week period of time between April 28 and May 8th.  The equipment consisted of a 6' x 6' heavy duty, custom fabricated fiberglass discharge sump housing the 3" nozzle, adjustable water level sensor, overflow and sump pump, four 30" x 30" heavy duty fiberglass discharge sumps with smaller nozzles and one 8' x 8' x 10' tall subterranean equipment vault with all pump and control equipment housed inside - and all associated plumbing.

Mr. Johnson followed the system supplier's specifications to the letter in excavating and surveying, installing and plumbing the system. While excavating for the equipment vault the installer hit rock, which had to be broken up and removed before installation could continue. Mr. Johnson handled this and all other issues of the installation calmly and skillfully.

I would recommend (or again employ) Fred Johnson and his company for a fountain project of any size based on his professionalism on our job, his knowledge of the functional requirements for this sensitive equipment, his problem solving capabilities and his overall sense of responsibility to the client.

Just a quick note to let you know your suggestions for clearing up my pond have really worked. The UV light and the microbe solution seem to do the trick. After fighting this for over two years, I am glad to finally have it rectified! Thanks again for your advice.

Steve Handy

The pond is really beautiful and all the fish survived. We'll see about a UV light next fall when you clean it again. good luck Fred.

Hello All, The new waterfall and pond system that I have installed in the old concrete ponds that already existed in our back yard is working great.  Needless to say, I got a great deal on the equipment (waterfall weir, skimmer, filter elements, UV bacteria filter, etc) and just had to do some serious conversion, concrete work, plumbing, waterfall building etc to make it come together. I still have more rocks and plants to place in and around the pond, a few glitches to work out, etc, but it will be really cool really soon. I got some great advice from Fred at Custom Ponds & Fountains LLC. Just in case you guys want to have one custom built in your yard, Fred (Custom Ponds and Fountains) is your guy.

I wanted to thank you for doing such a great job installing our Savio Skimmer/Filter. You were very professional and caring about our concerns. The stream has been running very clean for the last several weeks. The ease of basket and filter cleaning is a big help. Thanks again for correcting our maintenance problems.

I would just like to Thank You for the amazing job you did on cleaning our  Koi Pond this season.  It has been years since it has looked this fantastic. We just can't get over how clear and neat it looks again.

I appreciate the extra care you took to work on the rocks and waterfall and get it back in the original shape as it was when you first put it in five years ago.  I have had others clean the pond but from now on no one other then you will touch this pond.  We have worked together on ponds for over 7 years and you are by far the best person to have creating a pond/water feature or working on it. I appreciate our relationship and look forward to seeing you in the future.  Again thank you for the great ponds.
