Spring Cleanout: Starting in March

What is a Spring Cleanout?

When your water garden begins to come alive, you want to ensure that you give it a healthy start.  Performing a spring cleanout now creates an improved environment for your fish, plants and water quality.  Spring cleanouts are scheduled starting in early March and continue through the first of May.

Our service professionals will remove excess sludge/debris from the water feature but will preserve some of the established bio-film material on the rocks below the water level.  The cleanout process will not result in “sparkling clean” rocks but it will leave you with a healthy pond that will be ready for an enjoyable low maintenance year.

What does a Spring Cleanout include?

  • Drain pond and place fish in an aerated container with original pond water
  • Power wash pond interior and stream/waterfall to remove debris
  • Divide and thin pond plants
  • Clean all filter mats, bioballs, biofall unit, skimmer and pump as needed
  • Replace the IonGen Probe, if necessary
  • Reseal waterfall and make necessary minor adjustments to rocks as needed
  • Maintain lighting system
  • Fill pond and add water conditioner and bacteria
  • Start system and perform a visual check of equipment operation
  • Check outside perimeter of pond for low spots, leaks and problems
  • Re-introduce fish back to pond

Estimated Labor Effort

Labor rates are estimated based on past customer cleanouts and are meant to give you an idea of the labor costs you will incur.  Every cleanout is different and presents unique challenges.  Water features that have not had routine maintenance may require more time due to excessive amounts of debris/sludge.  Therefore, it is likely that the labor charge for your water feature will not be exactly reflected in the categories below:

    • Average Pond :  6-8 Man Hours
  • Average Pondless Water Feature:  2-4 Man Hours

Fall & Winter Services

Fall Maintenance Service

Fall is the time for our service professionals to do a little clean up work in your pond. Although the leaves might not have turned color just yet, we will make sure you are prepared for their ultimate drop into your pond. Installation of a pond net and cutting back the dying foliage of your aquatic plants will help to keep your water garden free of debris and make your spring clean-up much easier.

We do the tough, grimy work done so you don’t have to!

Stay warm and comfortable, let our service professionals take care of your water feature!
