Spring Pond Cleanings:
After a long winter, finally, pond season is back!
A spring cleaning usually involves removing the fish to temporary housing and draining the entire pond, then vacuuming the debris that has collected on the bottom of the pond. In some cases, a gravel-lined pond may need to have the gravel removed, washed and in rare cases replaced. This can be stressful on the pond’s inhabitants (like beneficial bacteria, fish, and plants)
After the clean-out is performed our technicians will treat the water for chlorine, add appropriate additives and acclimate the fish to the new water before releasing them back into the pond.
In addition, our technicians will clean out the filtration system, inspect all equipment, and make sure your fish are looking healthy!
Fall Pond Closing Maintenance:
Sadly, after a long Spring and Summer, we must make sure are ponds are ready for the fall and winter ahead.
Fall closings usually involve netting ponds that will collect too many leaves, removal of dying back tropical plants, inserting aeration, shutting down filtration and waterfalls, cleaning filtration for next season, and bringing in any equipment that cannot be housed in the cold.
