The first thing that is important to know about pond maintenance services is how often you should have them done. Just like having your vehicles routinely serviced, you need to have your pond routinely maintained. Having your pond maintenance done at least once a year will help to keep the ecosystem of your pond in balance. Cleaning out a pond is a dirty job, but it is one that will keep your water features working properly and your water clear for your continued enjoyment. Pond maintenance can be done at any time, but we suggest keeping it around the same time every year.
The process of pond maintenance is a dirty job that we love to do. The process includes some important steps:
- Siphon out water into a holding tank and place fish in the tank with aeration
- Pressure wash rocks and clean out debris
- Break back aquatic plants
- Clean filters
- Check underwater landscape lighting
- Refill the pond (and detoxify it if it runs on city water)
- Reacclimate the fish to the water
