About this pro

How does your service stand out?

We offer true flat rate monthly service and leasing plans. We make things simple by taking a lot of the headaches associated with maintaining an aquarium, pond or fountain away from our clients. Our plans include zero cost emergency service visits, food, chemicals, and livestock boarding all for one flat rate.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Designing new aquariums has to be by far the best part.

    Serge was very professional and detail oriented. He made multiple visits to make sure that our fountain was placed and balanced properly. He ensured that we were satisfied. I would highly recommend him!!

    Serge did a decent job of cleaning the piece, but when he left, the floodlight that is a part of the assembly would not respond to its remote control, and the water flow was strong enough to splash the floor around the base of the sculpture. I have not yet received a proposal for continuing maintenance.

    Serge is fantastic! Diagnosed the problem with my water feature quickly and economically, then performed the service in a timely friendly and professional manner, showed up on time on both occasions - a rarity in this business - and even bravely dispatched several black widow spiders he found hanging around the filter pump outlet. Definitely would hire him again!!!

    On short notice came out to fix the pump for my pond. Offered helpful advice on what I needed and did not need. Ended up being less expensive than the quote. Quality work and honest.

    Reef Playground Inc repaired a pump for my backyard pond / water feature. Despite the project being more difficult and time consuming than expected, the work was completed within a timely manner and per the quoted price. I would highly recommend to anyone desiring a dependable and honest company to handle their project.

    Serge fixed a leak in my fountain that another thumbtack professional swore could not be fixed. He showed up on time and performed exactly as he said he would. I'll be using him for maintenance and cleaning now too!
