HIGH HEAT and water quality?

Anybody here that is familiar with aquascape water gardens have an answer to this question?

What if the summer temps are above 100 degrees from about May 15th to sometimes October 15th., will this effect water quality.? Was wanting to add ponds to my business but I am worried about this being a problem. I do NOT LIKE complaints from customers and wish to avoid them al ALL COSTS.

thanks in advance

High heat can cause a problem with watergardens, if you don't take some precautions. The easiest solution is to create some shade for the pond. If you have shade for the pond, the temperature won't rise as much and the fish will be fine. Also, by creating shade In the pond (ie. rock overhangs, water lilies) it will give the fish a place to cool off and get out of the sun. The only ohter problems that you might run into is more than usual string algae. Make sure you have enough plants in the pond and use the bacteria, and you should be fine.
