This blog we will be looking at another competitor of Aquascape, and giving you an idea of what you can expect from each company. We will go over the good things we found with their products, as well as the drawbacks. Today it's Aquascape vs. Helix.
What we like
Aquascape products are really made with the homeowner and contractor in mind. Aquascape really takes into consideration all the elements; rain, sleet, snow, ice, heat, cold…all of it. This is why we really love Aquascape products, they are build to last! They are very durable and can last longer outdoors. The mechanics are very good and of high quality. Filtration is another great aspect of Aquascape products. If your looking for pond products to really get your pond working well…Aquascape is it. Aquascape also makes their products easy to install and use; each coming with an install and use guide, with contractors and homeowners in mind.
Aquascape does generally cost more, but we believe you really get what you pay for, and we have not been let down by the quality of Aquascapes products. One thing we didn’t like was the skimmer basket and lid that went along with it. However, Aquascape really listens to contractors and homeowners alike, and there have been some really great modifications to the skimmer basket and lids.
What We Like
One of the main points we like about Helix is their pricing is lower than Aquascape. Their filtration systems are similar to Aquascape, so you will still get decent filtration from their systems. They are also easier to hide than some Aquascape products due to their smaller size.
Helix does not offer as many products as Aquascape does. You will still find skimmers, pumps, and water treatments, but you won’t find as many comprehensive products as you will with Aquascape. Another drawback we have found is that Helix skimmers need to have a bigger and deeper hole dug. In this Oklahoma Red Clay that makes it tough. The Helix also doesn't filter water as well as the Aquascape Biofalls and Signature Series Skimmers.
