A Spring Startup service
Wash out the pond
The water is pumped out. The rock and gravel is washed with a power washer.This process is complete when the pond looks clean. This service is necessary every year, to remove bad bacteria that will grow in the pond and this could harmful to your fishes health.
Fish holding tub
We carefully take the fish out of the pond and place them in aerated holding tubs. In the tubs, we add pond water and new dechlorinated water. The fish acclimate to the new water, while the service is being completed. The fish are then placed back into the pond at the end of the service.
Clean out the filtration
The biofalls filtration unit, pads, and filter media gets cleaned out. This biofalls filter gets cleaned only once a year in the Spring Startup service.
Handling the fish
After the pond is cleaned, the fish are carefully placed back in the pond. The fish adjust to the new dechlorinated water and are ready for another season.
Change the aquatic bulbs
We change all the aquatic light bulbs in the pond and waterfall. The bulbs are guaranteed for one season in the same year.
After the clean out is complete. We apply water detoxifier to the new water, filling the pond to defeat the chlorine in the hose water. We will set you up with the basic water additives for a season such as a natural bacteria and algae control. We offer other water additives at your request.
