Maintenance services for Ponds to Keep Your Fish Healthy and in a Clean Environment
Whether you own a small community pond or a large lake several miles long, you will need professional pond care services at some point. Whether your pond is an elaborate filtration system or just a simple filter designed to maintain pond water quality, it will require some level of maintenance from time to time. Many homeowners mistakenly believe that their garden pond will take care of all of their maintenance needs naturally, but this is simply not true. If you own a large pond or a townhome with a pond, you may find yourself surprised one day by a seemingly overwhelming need for professional services. Consider the following benefits of pond maintenance servicing:
Professional pond cleaning and maintenance services often include a wide range of products to assist you to achieve the best possible results. Most lakes are maintained with filters to keep water quality at its best, but filters alone are not enough. You will also need aerators, water pumps, heaters, UV filters, backwashing systems, biological filtration, mechanical filtration, and a variety of other products for keeping your water clean and algae free. Some of these products are specific to ponds and lakes, while others can be used in pools and larger lakes.
There are many reasons why regular maintenance is important to ponds and lakes. One reason is that ponds and lakes will quickly become eyesores that detract from the value of your property without proper care. Secondly, algae will slowly eat away at the structure of your water features, causing structural damage and costly repairs. Finally, without aeration and circulation, ponds and lakes will not be able to sustain fish life. These ecosystem services are especially important to consider if you live in a community where many residents have poor water quality.
The cost of pond cleaning and maintenance services depends on the size and structure of your lake or pond and our team at Aquarium Factory can assist you. If you own a small pond and require assistance, we have a lot of expertise in this area. Fortunately, there are also many options available for those who are willing to invest time and money in their garden pond. For example, purchasing a preformed water feature or installing an aerobic pond pump will improve your pond’s health and save you money.
If you own a larger pond or water feature, it is still possible to maintain it yourself performing some tasks and leaving the rest to us. This option allows you to spend more time with your family and add value to your property. Some common maintenance services for garden ponds include seeding, backwashing, calcium carbonate water treatments, and other services that will keep your ponds looking beautiful for years to come. Of course, you will need to do a little bit of everything yourself in most cases, which can make pond ownership a bit overwhelming and we can help with these tasks.
Regardless of whether you choose to do the majority of your maintenance service yourself or hire us to do it for you, there are several steps you can take to ensure your waters are kept healthy. For instance, several products are available that can help keep pond bacteria down, so you won’t have to worry about harmful algae growth. In addition, it is important to regularly backwash your water to get rid of dirt and debris. Backwashing should be done at least once a year, but less frequent severs are required in some cases. Finally, by performing a proper winter dormancy period, you can ensure that your pond remains in top shape through the long winter months. Pond cleaning improves pond water making your garden more attractive. It is now easy to keep your pond healthy with our help.
