    I would like to start building a library of resources and an understanding of water feature construction. My only experience so far as been what Aquascapes has sent me through my affiliation with Landscape Ontario.

    Please tell me in your opinion, who the best manufacturers are and what specific components they build that are the best.

    I have been an outdoor lighting contractor for the past decade and serve a high end market here. I have a preference for only the best components available.

    Thanks for your help.

    I'm sure this will start a big arguement, but stay with aquascape componants. I just strayed to a different company's skimmer and I HATE it! I did this because I was getting tired of ADI's pricing, but I will keep paying the price so I know I will get quality stuff from now on. Since you are in Ontario seek out Doug Harvey from ADI and he is a good wealth of info and a great speaker to boot.

    I admire Aquascape's marketing- absolutely brilliant. In terms of quality pond components, though, I've been blown away by Russell Water Gardens. I no longer specify ADI products unless the client insists. STL, send me a pm if you're interested and I can give you the contact info for my supplier.

    to me Savio products are superior to AS products.
    every thing from durability, to design, to quality of rubber/plastic they use.

    I agree with Savio for sure on their skimmer boxes and waterfall filters and waterfall wells.

    I just started to list all the reasons they are superior to other manufacturers and I got tired. You will just have to look it up on their website.

    I will say this. The mold for their skimmer box was over 2 million dollars. They put alot into their products.

    I would say there are many better manufacturers than ADI now.

    Here is a great wholesaler.


    They carry all the best products at really good wholesale contractor pricing.
