TOP 3 SPRING START UP TIPS for your POND

Clean your pond

1.Clean out your pond.

Whether a full drain and clean-out or just a partial, the main objective is to remove the bulk of the bottom debris- sludge, leaves, etc. During the warmer months, natural bacteria would typically break down this debris, but in the cooler months those bacteria go dormant. Thus, an excess of organics and believe me the algae will enjoy those. We have all the necessary tools here, whether you need gloves, a net or even a vacuum.

Clean your pond

2. Start adding beneficial bacteria.

When the water temps start to stay around 50 degrees fahrenheit, it's time to start adding your beneficial bacteria. This will slowly build up the nitrifiers. It also improves dissolved oxygen levels while metabolizing dead algae and dissolves away organic sludge.

Clean your pond

3. Check pump and filter.

Your pump is your pond's lifeblood, providing necessary circulation and aeration for fish. Stay proactive with maintenance and make sure it's clean and ready to run come spring.

These simple steps should help you ensure a more stress-free life come spring. For additional questions on what we discussed today, please don't hesitate to call.
