Hybrid Pond by Russell Watergardens

What is a Hybrid Pond™?
A Hybrid Pond™ is safer for koi than a water garden pond, but is more natural looking than a koi Pond in the landscape. A "hybrid" of the two, only made possible by the Patented Hydro Vortex™ backwashable Waterfall Filter. If you don't have a backwashable waterfall filter, a remote installation capable pond skimmer, a bottom drain, and a bottom drain pre-filter, a UV, or external aeration - you don't have a Hybrid Pond™.

Our Exclusive Hybrid Pond™ Kits make Beautiful ponds
That are Part Water Garden Pond and Part Koi Pond

A Hybrid Pond is part water garden pond, part koi pond - a Russell Exclusive pond concept

Ever since we got into the pond industry in the mid 1990's, there have been just two types of ponds - a koi pond, or a water garden pond. Too many companies online deceptively market their water garden pond kits as koi pond kits. Experienced koi club members everywhere will tell you that a water garden pond is in no way the same, or even similar to a koi pond. Click on the following link to find a local koi club in your community and ask them yourself: "Are water garden ponds the same as koi ponds" We stake our reputation on the fact they will tell you indeed that they are not the same. www.akca.org

Over the years, we have known several contractors that were sued by their customers because their customer wanted a koi pond, and then the contractor installed a water garden pond for them instead - to the customer's dissatisfaction. Koi ponds have smooth, bare liner bottoms with no gravel. Water garden pond bottoms are covered with gravel. A koi pond's structure is behind the liner. A water garden's structure is rock inside the liner.

This is what led John Russell, the CEO, Company Founder, and product design engineer of Russell Watergardens to invent the Hybrid Pond™ concept. With the Patented Hydro Vortex™ backwashable waterfall filter, also invented by John Russell, the Hybrid Pond™ concept became a reality. Koi ponds all had similar things in common, such as a backwashable biological filter, a bottom drain, a bottom drain pre-filter, a pond skimmer, UV system, external pump and aeration, with NO rocks or gravel in the pond. So it dawned on John to combine a water garden pond kit with a koi pond kit and the Hybrid Pond™ was created. Simple as that. A koi pond is the safest form of pond for raising and growing koi. A water garden pond is intended to look more natural than a koi pond in the landscape, but is not the best choice for raising and growing koi. The Hybrid™ Pond is the best of both worlds in one pond.

An Easy to Clean Hybrid Pond™ Kit is Much Less Expensive to Own and Maintain.
Long After Price has been Forgotten, Value and Piece of Mind are Not.
