5.0 out of 5 stars Rings for a deterrent 19 April 2011
Having lost some Koi to herons in previous years I had fitted several types of ugly netting over the pond thus spoiling my view of the fish which for me are therapeutic to watch on a balmy summer evening - well almost any time of the year really. Then I saw the advertisement for Netfloat rings and decided to give them a try. I live in The Netherlands, my kidney shaped pond is 8 metres long and 2-2.5 metres wide, in an open garden regularly visited by hungry herons. I had to arrange for the rings to be sent to a friend in the UK and I picked them up by car some some 4 months later. They were relatively easy to fit but needed 'shaping' to the contours of the pond and, because I have 2 inlet jets coming into the pond keeping the water circulating, I had to tether the rings to the side of the pond at places where they tended to float into the middle. Since then there have been no losses of fish despite the fact that I have seen herons flying over on several occasions.

I cannot say 100% that the rings have prevented the herons from taking any fish, but this is the longest that I have gone without losing any, so to me they appear to be an effective deterrent. Not only that they look quite neat despite the fact that I have no plants in the pond only around it.

They do collect alga, and although this is easy to remove with a garden hose getting the rings out so as not to disturb the Koi is a bit of a hassle - hopefully future rings will be impregnated with something that stops the alga from growing on them but for the moment it is not a real problem.

Overall I am very happy with the product.

Harry Magnani

PS it would be impossible for a heron to walk on the rings without sinking so I do not understand the comment of Mr James.

5.0 out of 5 stars NetFloat Heron Deterrent System 21 April 2011
At Women With Waders we are always being asked for ways to keep fish safe from Herons. We started using NetFloat last year and have now fitted over 40 ponds with it - using clear fishing line to discreetly attach the nets to the side of the ponds. A fantastic product that not only looks good, is easy to install but really does work.

4.0 out of 5 stars CIRCULAR NETFLOAT RINGS 24 April 2012
By rodney
Verified Purchase
Great visual improvement over the netting previously used after a heron took all our large fish. Probably better on large ponds over 4ft wide where you can have double ring around the pond edge with free water in the middle. With our pond, about 4ft wide, there is no free water in the middle. There are gaps between the rings where a heron could catch our smaller fish but none taken todate - tried to fill gaps with floating plants.
Best fitted to new pond or in winter/early spring if you have plants growing thru the surface. Tricky to fit around existing plants - if you cut holes for water lillies, etc then these will be access points for a heron in winter - the leaves and later the flowers are trapped under the netfloats at present (late April).
Also noted that the floats can hang up on the sloping sides of the pond edge if you have a dry spell as in March and the water level drops when the netfloats fully occupy the surface.
Overall very happy - positive comments from visitors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product providing..... 18 Jan 2014
By Big Al
Verified Purchase
This product is superb and any negative reviews near that certain basic principles are not being observed. 1) if pond is very shallow at edges, a heron will simply tread them down - they can stand in fairly deep water. 2) if there are any 'Islands' within the floating nets, a heron could simply land on that and use it as a fishing station. 3) make sure rings cannot float away from edge of pond - herons are clever, patient birds and will find any weak spots. 4) check that rings are joined regularly - large fish could possibly dislodge them. 5) do nit be tempted to use just one circle of rings - herons can easily strike over that distance! Follow these and you should find the product excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heron and pest deterrent works for leaves too 13 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase
We are very pleased with this product. At first we were a bit sceptical because the rings seemed flimsy and we weren't sure if they would fit the area or float properly, but they did - and they have dissuaded out dogs from drinking from the pond as well!

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat solution for fishing cats! 13 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase
My pond has been free from fishing domestic cats (the UK variety) for five years, then a new one moves into the neighbourhood and then wham! fish corpses all round the pond. I've tried ultrasonics to no avail and he even got under the netting somehow. I've only just been able to install NetFloat as the pond man has just cleaned and re-stocked the pond.
Someone has reported that this product is fiddly to install, unless you have your thumbs missing it's an absolute breeze and took me about twenty minutes for an irregular shaped 10 x 6 ft pond.
It looks as neat as can be and so much better than netting.

2.0 out of 5 stars Effectiveness of deterrent 27 Feb 2012
I purchased two packs to ensure the circumference of my pool was covered. The next day the Heron, which has been regularly taking my fish, came back looked at the netting and jumped/flew over it and landed in the middle of the pond!!! I give up!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Anti Heron! 10 Sep 2011
Tried all sorts over the years to stop herons getting my fish? This is the only one that has worked. The only problem is my dog likes them too and keeps pulling them out of the pond!
