Our Feedback

Just to say thank you. The Heron protection electric fence is just great. Ordered Thursday, delivered Monday, finished installing on Wednesday, the pond was attacked Wednesday night I am not sure if it was a cat or heron but my prize fish is still cruising around. I knew the electric fence would work, as I thought I would improve the route to earth by adding an extra earth wire round the pond and back to the energizer, thinking it's not going to have much power I did not turn the mains off, the earth wire touched the live wires, and although I don’t have much hair, I believe what I have was styled into a punk hair do in an instant. Excellent piece of kit, along with excellent service and advice. (plus Hair styling optional extra for thick'os who don't respect electricity). Thanks again
John Naylor, Menston
