SPRING CLEANING OF WATER GARENS & KOI PONDS
Spring cleaning of pond (included in maintenance service program packages).

  1. Spring clean outs include all the aforementioned in maintenance service as well as:
  2. Pump down entire water feature and salvage 25-40% of aged water. The aged water will be reintroduced back into feature upon completion in order to help jump start the biological process. When we clean out, we put an emphasis on the sludge that has built up at the bottom of feature thru the course of time. Too much sludge accumulation over the course of time can become detrimental to your ponds biological balance, due to gases building up and eventually being released.
