Step 16
Now the Affinity Pool is in place, the underlay can
be neatly folded and tucked under the liner bag.
Ensure that it’s fitted correctly by slightly lifting up the
pond to allow you to fold and push the underlay
under the panels and the liner bag. Once this has
been done all around the pond, you shouldn’t be
able to see any of the white underlay.
Step 17
Step 18
One planting basket (Part 18) and two planting
basket fixing pins (Part 3) are supplied which
can be fitted to panels of the Affinity Pool. Each
top rail has two centre holes underneath that
allow the planting basket to be pinned in with
the fixing pins supplied. The grip of the pin can
be adjusted using the inside screw to remove or
adjust tightness. If you need to remove a planting
basket reverse this process with a cross threaded
screwdriver.
Once everything has been completed and you
are completely happy with the position of the
pond, you can now fill your Affinity Pool with tap
water. Ensure the tap water has been treated with
a water dechlorinator as this will ensure it’s safe
for your fish later. Only fill up to the rings on the
liner bag rim, once filled you can turn on your
Inpond 5 in 1 filter (please see the filter instructions
for correctly installing the pump/filter, using the
lighting and water features).
Additional baskets are available to purchase
individually. Use pond compost to plant your
chosen aquatic plants.
Important: Due to the size of
your Blagdon View Affinity Pool,
we would recommend the use of
a Blagdon Affinity Ice Vent Heater
over the winter months to help
prevent the pool freezing over.
We would recommend, in
prolonged spells of temperatures
below freezing, to relocate either
the fish, or the entire pool to a
more sheltered location.
Tip: To help hide the filter cables use the
planting basket on the panel where the
cables comes through.

This step requires you to use 12 of the plastic
keys (part 2), insert them into each of the
oval holes at the base of all the tridents on
both sides, 2 per trident. Image 1 shows the
first keys being inserted into the oval holes.
The oval holes must not be covered but be
completely free and open to ensure the keys
can fit in easily. Continue to insert all 12 keys .
Note: the tool has 2 ends to allow for
easy tightening of the 90 degree and 135
degree connectors

Now using the supplied tool (part 1) turn the
keys a quarter turn so lay flat and lock into
position as per image 3. Continue to do this
to all 12 keys around the base of the pond
until all 6 legs are firmly connected to all 6
trident connectors.
Step 11
Once the 6 leg cross bracing bars are in position,
it is time to insert the tension bar (part 15). Adjust
the angle of the bar to match the remaining gap
in the frame and insert the remaining two plastic
keys (part 2) as per image 1 below. Once the
keys are in position lock them with a quarter
turn using the provided tool (part 1), then apply
pressure to the tension bar to make it straight as
per image 2 below. With the bar straight, insert a
plant basket fixing pin (part 3) into the remaining
empty hole to lock the bar into position as per
image 3 below.

Important: Before moving on to step 13,
ensure all the labels are removed from the
panels, as you will be unable to remove
them once the liner bag has been inserted.
Step 13
Now between two people turn over the Affinity
Pool and Insert the Liner Bag (Part 5). Place the
liner Bag inside the Affinity pool and carefully
unpack it to fit the inside like in image 4 below.
You will see that on image 1 that a hook is
present on the trident sections (parts 16 & 17).
This enables you to hook each eyelet of the
liner to the hook on the trident connector. Ensure
the liner is positioned with the windows correctly
lined up with the windows on the Mocha
Window panels, see exploded diagram for
reference.
To be able to hook the liner easily, place the
eyelet perpendicular to the top of the hook and
slide to the back of the hook before allowing
the eyelet to drop down into the groove behind
and become secure. Do this to all 6 of the
eyelets around the pond. This will leave the 2
eyelets on the back panel empty.

Tip: When sliding the panels into the
curved slot sections on the legs ensure
the panels are wet with water. This will
aid the slotting process of all the panels
into the legs.

Step 2
Identify a suitable area where your Affinity
Pool can be placed, ensure that the area is
level with a firm base and is free from stones
or any other debris that could damage your
liner bag.

Step 5
Using your supplied underlay (part 6) lay it flat
over the cleaned area ensuring it covers the
entire area where the liner will sit. Underlay is
very important as it protects your liner bag from
puncture or damage and prevents any possible
unwanted leaks.
Using the legs (parts 7 & 8) insert them into
the trident connectors as per images 1 and 2.
Ensure the end of the leg with the white sticker
is not inserted first but are located at the top
of the leg once inserted and lined up with the
oval holes. The two 90 degree legs fit the 90
degree trident connectors and the 135 degree
legs for the 135 trident connectors, see the
image on step 6 for reference.

Step 4
Now using all of the top rails (parts 9, 10 &11)
and all the trident connectors (parts 16 & 17)
connect them together into a halfmoon shape,
each top rail is labelled to help aid you in correct
construction. The trident connectors in image 1
allow the top rails to slot into each other, ensure
the bottom oval hole is completely free. Image 3
shows the top rail correctly inserted.
The top rails are labelled A, B & C as per image 4.

Step 10
Step 6
Step 8
Your Affinity Pool should now have all 6 of the
legs inserted the right way up and be ready
to have the plastic keys (part 2) inserted at the
bottom of the top rails. It should look like the
image below with all 6 legs inserted.
Now would be a good time to look at the
exploded diagram and take note of the position
of each of the windows on the liner bag (part
5). As all 3 windows are positioned at the
front of the halfmoon, you must make sure all 3
window panels (part 24) are positioned at the
front as per the exploded diagram.
The panels are divided between A, B & C
which help guide you on which panel needs
to go where.
Identify the window panels first, labelled A (part
24) and slot them into the correct legs, see
exploded diagram. You will have to use two
hands and slot both sides of the panel at the
same time to ensure it fits easily and correctly
between the legs to the bottom rail. Ensure the
window frames are facing outwards and are
slotted into the legs the right way by looking at
images 1 & 2.
Labels on the panels which have “to the inside”
on them means that the side of the panel needs
to face towards the inside of the pond.
Now using the leg cross brace bars (parts
12, 13 & 14) and 12 of the remaining plastic
keys (part 2) insert them one at a time, working
your way around the pond leaving one panel
empty. Lock the plastic keys by quarter turning
them, using the provided tool (part 1).
Once all the leg braces have been inserted
and the keys locked the panels of your Affinity
Pool should be pulled tight as per image 2
below.
Step 12
Step 14
Check all parts are secure and correct and then
attach the supplied feet (part 10) to the end
of the 7 legs. These clip into place easily and
ensure the pond is level and secure. Feet can fit
all the 90, 135. See image 1 & 2.
Place the Inpond 5 in 1 filter inside the pond
and thread the cable between the liner bag
(part 5) and the frame of the pool. Use the
section of liner that you left unattached in step
14, this will help to keep the cable tidy and
out of harms way. Once the cable has been
threaded through the gap, attach the eyelets on
the liner bag to the holes on the top rail using
2 of the Plant basket fixing pins (part 3). See
Inpond instructions on how to set up the filter
correctly, page 12 will help with the installation
of the waterfall. Do not turn the Inpond on at
this time.

Step 15
With the Inpond filter in place you can now
look at installing the waterfall. To do this clip the
Waterfall clips (part 19) onto the top rail either
side of the cable for the filter. See image 1
below for reference.

With the clips attached to the rail, next position
the waterfall (part 20) so that the bracket on
the back of the waterfall sits in the clips, as per
image 3 below. Finally attach the waterfall hose
(part 21) to the Inpond filter, you may need to
cut the hose to length.
