Seneye Pond Monitoring - Why do you NEED this?

Seneye Pond Monitoring - Why do you NEED this?

The next best thing to koi insurance!

We have been using Seneye for several months now on our main pond in the new fish house.

The full time monitoring of ammonia, pH, temperature, and water level provides us with cover for almost all scenarios.

pH crash? Sorted - Seneye monitors pH. By setting your ideal pH range on your Seneye dashboard, you can set high and low pH alerts, sending you an SMS and email notification if the parameters shoot up or drop out of your range. The dashboard and mobile app also show a trend, predicting the need to take corrective action.

Ammonia spike? Seneye would protect your fish against harmful ammonia levels much the same way as changes in pH. If you are over feeding, the trend indicator will show a rise before levels are dangerous, or alerts should the limits be reached.

Faulty heater? Temperature changes in unheated ponds tend not to be too drastic, or even preventable. In a heated pond though, failure of a heating system can be fatal. If the heater failed off, or a thermostat was to stick open, Seneye would give you a rapid warning that something was wrong.

Lost some pond water? Almost every koi keeper has a story about rapid loss of water from a pond. Whether its a burst pipe, overflowing filter, leaving a waste valve open, or an overactive drum filter, the loss of water can be anywhere from inconvenience to fatal. Seneye features a water level sensor, and just like the ammonia, pH, and temperature, you will receive SMS and email alerts should a problem be detected.

Seneye is perfect for busy people, those that have limited time around their ponds and would fail to spot problems occurring. It's a great tool for winter, when you're less likely to spend time by the pond and when most issues occur. And for those with heavily stocked ponds running on a knife edge, the early warnings would be invaluable.

Battery Back Up Air Pumps - Worth the cost?

Powercuts or equipment failure are nightmare scenarios for koi keepers, especially in summer. Koi are sensitive animals needing a high dissolved oxygen content.

99.99% of koi keepers will rely on electricity to power air pumps, with airlines and diffusers delivering oxygen rich air to the pond.

Bio-security is not a new concept for us, but constantly evolving. COVID-19 poses a new challenge for the world, for vulnerable people, business, and those that rely on other services. We have to be on site, therefore we will remain 'open', but there will have to be changes made. We wish you all the best during this time.
