Are the fish themselves eco-friendly?

Yes they are we make them from polycarbonate material. There is no leaches in the stormwater system and of course they are introduced with the environment in mind at all times.

Can you change the wording of the fish?

Anything is possible. Please contact us for more details.

Do they come in other colours?

Yes the fish can be produced in pretty much any colour you like. There are minimum quantities. Please contact us for more details.

How long do the fish last for?

As they are made from polycarbonate, these fish will last around 10 to 20 years under normal wear and tear conditions.

Is there a minimum order?

You can order fish individually. If you are looking to make a bulk order please contact us for prices.

What do I get with my fish?

The fish come complete with concrete tappets and the drill bit.

What is the turn around time?

When you are ordering a standard stocked fish it will be dispatched within 2 to 3 working days. If you are ordering a custom fish we will advise you the turn around time prior to placing your order. Please contact us for more information.

What temperatures can the fish withstand?

Polycarbonate has a broad range of temperature tolerance. The material maintains its integrity between -40°C to 121°C (-40°F to 250°F). This means it is suitable to place it in locations which are very hot and areas that may get covered in snow.

Why polycarbonate? And why is it eco-friendly?

Polycarbonate is a unique substance that is strong, durable, has a long lifespan, will not leach any harmful harmful chemicals into waterways, is UV resistant and can withstand climates from deserts to snow.

What is the Fish on Drains Challenge?

If your business or institution is environmentally friendly and chooses to install Fish on Drains on your drains to educate people about our waterways, you need to put a challenge out to other similar businesses or institutions to do the same. Collectively we can make a difference.
