    I am ready to fill my pond and need to know what if any chemicals I need to use? I think I need to use a de-chlorinator but need some guidance and suggestions.

    Thanks,

    Gerry

    Even that is not need until fish are added unless your water is really bad ,but you will need a liquid test water kit like API .

    What is generally needed for/in a pond:
    Plants
    @sissy said liquid test kit
    Filtration, weather its a 20ft long stream or a pressurized canister filter
    Fish food (anarchis can be used for this)
    usually pump(s)
