The Proof Is In Our Products
Easy to install. Had to purchase smaller bolts to attached to post as ones provided did not match drilled holes
Hello Frank, Thank you for the review... I'm sorry to hear you had to go out and purchase smaller bolts! We are looking into what happened and will definitely add another step to our QC process. Thank you for bringing that to our attention so we can keep an eye on that. Sincerely, Your friends at Pond King.
Lacking a Few Items
After have a pond feeder, i assumed that it would include a remote control, which it did not. Also, I would think it would not be a big deal as it is being manufactured to have a bracket for the timer and battery inside the center column rather than just lay the pieces in there as a they may lay. Just a suggestion to make it better.
Hello Ronnie - Thank you for the feedback. Because the mounted fish feeder is accessible from the dock, most people don't want the remote, but that is an option. The cost is $109. If you'd like one, just let me know... As for the timer and battery, there should be a u-bracket that sits over the motor to hold the timer and the battery. I've included a photo so you can see what I mean. If for some reason you didn't receive that bracket, please let me know and we'll get one out to you. Thanks again. Veronica

What are your fish feeders made of?
The bodies of both feeders, and the floats on the floating feeder, are all-aluminum, welded, and powder coated. While this makes them slightly heavier and a bit more expensive than other feeders on the market, it also makes them virtually maintenance free and highly durable. You’ll be using your Pond King Fish Feeder for years to come.
How does the feed move from the hopper to the device that dispenses the feed into the water?
Our fish feeders use a funnel system. The feed moves down the funnel and rests on the throwing disk until the timer goes off, engaging the motor.
What is the power source for the motor?
The mounted fish feeder takes a 6-volt and the floating feeder takes a 12-volt battery and those, plus a rechargeable battery with solar panel, are included in your purchase.
Is there a centrifugal air blower?
No, our automatic fish feeders use a spin cast.
What is the pellet capacity?
Both the mounted and floating fish feeders can throw up to a ¾” pellet. The mounted feeder holds 50 pounds of feed and the floating feeder holds a 100 pounds. It’s important to note, many feeder manufacturers base their capacities off of corn, so they'll hold less pellets, especially larger pellets. Our weights are “true” weights, based off ¾” pellets.
What is the feed pattern and distance?
The floating feeder dispenses feed into a circular 8’ pattern. The mounted automatic fish feeder dispenses 50% of the food straight down, and 50% of the food no more than 6’ out in a semi-circle.
What is the feed time duration?
The programmable timer allows you to set up to 6 different feed times per day with a duration of 1 second up to 30 seconds.
Is there a recommended feeding schedule?
For most ponds, we recommend feeding your fish twice a day (morning and evening) for 3-5 seconds per feeding. This will dispense approximately 2-2.5 lbs. of food each time. But if they aren’t eating all the food in about 10-15 minutes, you’ll want to adjust the duration of the feeding.
How much should I feed the fish?
The amount to feed depends on both the number of fish stocked and the aeration of the pond. A well-aerated pond stocked at your typical stocking rates can be fed up to 200 lbs. of food per month.
How many fish feeders do I need?
A good rule of thumb to follow is one feeder per acre. If you are going to use more than one feeder on your body of water, be sure to disperse them evenly across the surface to ensure all your fish have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of supplemental feeding.
Does the automatic fish feeder waste any feed?
No. Since you can adjust the frequency and duration of each feeding, you can control how much your fish are getting fed. You’ll want to adjust your feeder so that your fish consume all the feed in about 10 - 15 minutes after feeding.
How much does the feeder weigh?
An empty floating fish feeder weights approximately 80 lbs. An empty mounted fish feeder weighs approximately 30 pounds.
Do the Fish Feeders come with any sort of Warranty?
Yes. With all-Aluminum, welded, powder coated body and floats, the Pond King fish feeder bodies (and floats on the floating feeder) carry a 10-year structural integrity warranty. The timer has a 5-year warranty and motor, remote and remote parts each carry a 1-year warranty from the manufacturer.
