Ponds are some of the most relaxing outdoor water features and if done correctly can be indoors as well. We recommend using durable, quality products with a biological, mechanical, and chemical filtration system that can handle extreme weather for the health of all your entire aquatic community. In most cases ponds only get a water change once a year if that so maintenance and creating an ecosystem are very important.

Pond cleanouts annually are very important to help maintain a healthy enviroment for your aquatic community. Debris such as leaves, grass, algea, and weeds can all be found in your pond at one point throughout the year. Your benaficial bacteria will only break down so much.What's left will eventually turn into a sludge that causes harmful gases and create nutrients that your algea loves to feed off of. Algea will start to bloom and in some cases take over your pond. Depending on your filtration and pond design, you may not need an annual pond cleanout and only routine maintenance. Its a huge mess and a process to drain, put the your fish in holding tanks with oxygen, pressure wash, boulder placement,plant trimming and relocation. All the sludge must be taken out so your aquatic community can breath fresh water and not waste water. This needs to be done in a timely matter so the water in your holding tanks doesnt go bad or heat up. We recommend doing cleanouts in the spring, although we will do a cleanout any time of the year for the health of your aquatic life.
