Ponds are a great addition to any property’s landscape. But just like anything else, they need to be maintained. Overall ponds are low maintenance, but they do require being serviced every now and then to stay healthy and beautiful. Here are the top signs you need pond services.
- Murky Water – When your pond water begins to look cloudy and no longer clear, it turns into murky water. This is usually the result of the water not circulating properly. This can be resolved by fishing out debris and having your pond aerated.
- Odor – After a time, your pond may have fish waste and dead plants that are taking over your pond’s beauty and oxygen. If your pond lacks oxygen, it will quickly gain algae and an unpleasant odor that comes along with it.
- Failed Tests – If your pond is failing tests for pH levels and doesn’t seem to be circulating or functioning properly, call a professional for pond services to correct this issue.
- Fish are Gulping – If your koi fish are gulping near the surface of your pond, they are likely looking for oxygen because there isn’t enough oxygen present in the water. Call a professional to have you pond serviced right away so your fish survive.
