To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this letter of recommendation for Thomas Chimwala of Aquaponds Pty Ltd.
Thomas and his team have been providing excellent weekly maintenance service to my
various koi ponds over the past twelve years. Thomas also worked under the well-respected
brand of Koialami World of Koi who supplied excellent quality koi fish and supplies for many
years. Under Thomas’ watchful eye he identified sick fish and when needed involved Koi
Medic, Kevin Till, to administer medication. Thomas has a very good understanding of the
water filtration needs of a koi pond and will ensure that both you and your koi enjoy a clean
and healthy koi pond with minimum fuss.

To whom it may concern,

I would like to hereby give my thanks and appreciation for the excellent service provided by Thomas from Aquaponds for our pool to koi pond conversion. It is uncommon these days to find suppliers who not only provide good service, but use quality materials, and provide good communication throughout the project. Thomas was always available to assist with questions and advice, and the client now has a wonderful new pond with top-class koi filtration, which has been working flawlessly since installation. I look forward to working on many more such projects with Aquaponds.
