The hole through the head is often shaped so it has a top and a bottom. The wedges usually go on the top side, not the handle side. The head of the shaft is also shaped so the head rests on the top of the handle, so it can't slip down. The wedges are to stop the head slipping off the top of the shaft and go on either side beside the points, if you see what I mean.

No good if you have beasties in the pond. Vacs kill them!

The pond should not be filtered all the time if you have wildlife in it.

Clear timber preservatives

Properly tanalised timber, yes. The usual tanalised timber that is supplied, no!

The main indicator is to look at the ends of the planks and see how deeply the chemicals have penetrated.

SX70 by Sovereign. Tanalised timber is only good for one maybe two years, whatever they say.

The first frost will deal with them, but in the meantime you can pick them off and squash them.

Hardly a cheap tool, compared with the cost of a simple plastic syringe from a pharmacy or vet.
