Spring Care

Pond Clean Out Seminars

Spring is sneaking up on us and before you know it you’ll be enjoying the outdoors and all the wonder and excitement of your beautiful pond again. That brings us to the topic of preparing your pond for spring. Mother Nature has a fantastic way of preparing her natural bodies of water for each new season by flooding waterways with fresh rains and melting snow, pushing old water out and refreshing it with new.

In your ecosystem this service needs to be provided manually on an annual basis to help maintain its balance. This means you’ve got to drain the pond, remove any heavy debris that may have accumulated during fall and winter, clean the biological waterfall filter, thin out your aquatic plants, and replace the light bulbs as needed in your underwater lighting systems, and finally fill the pond back up, all while ensuring the safety of your fish and other pond inhabitants.

If you have had your pond installed or retrofitted with a Helix Advanced Suction Grid System, with the Helix Moving Bed Waterfall Filter, then the need to remove your fish and drain your pond, should be a thing of the past! Your SPRING POND CARE procedures will be less painful and cost substantially less than those with the traditional lava rock and pad waterfall filters.

For those that must perform the spring pond care, it’s a dirty job, but somebody has got to do it! It’s really not as hard as it sounds and for the “Down and Dirty”, do-it-yourselfers that are a little nervous, The Pond Diggers® at ExoticWaterscapes hosts Annual Spring Pond Care Seminars. Let us personally walk you through a spring pond cleaning out and other routine maintenance to build your confidence for this task. Call for info on the next cleaning seminar. 

For all others, have no fear, Exotic Waterscapes has started scheduling work orders for Spring Pond Care and we will be flooding into your neighborhood soon! That will leave more time for you to plant your annual spring flowers and prepare the barbecue pond party  for family and friends.

After you fill your pond back up, but before you put your fish back in, use The Pond Digger liquid or dry dechlorinator, to break down chlorine and chloramines.  This keeps your fish safe from chlorine or chloramine poisoning.
