The Key Aspects of Water Feature Maintenance

HomeBlogThe Key Aspects of Water Feature Maintenance

Almost all of our clients ask about maintenance for their water features. There seems to be a negative stigma about water feature maintenance and repairs. It seems that about 70% of our business is repairing systems from a DIY job or competitor. When we step in, we fix it once and for all. Better yet, let us build it right the first time.

The Key Aspects of Water Feature Maintenance

If not, pond maintenance can be a hassle. It involves a variety of tasks if you would like your water feature running clear and healthy. This can include cleaning the system, removing debris, monitoring the health of your koi or goldfish and plants, checking and making adjustments to water parameters, and so much more. If your system isn’t maintained properly, it can become contaminated, which may result in poor fish or plant health or premature pump failure, or it may attract mosquitoes and other insects.

Reasons we may need to perform maintenance on water features:

  1. Algae overgrowth is one of the most common problems in ponds. It can contribute to odors and green water and can harm your wildlife. Maintenance and cleaning can help prevent buildup of excess nutrients, which will starve algae out.
  2. Oxygen is crucial to ponds and wildlife. Keeping your pumps running clear will help avoid stagnant water and promote a healthy ecosystem. Even a fountain needs water circulation. Broken or damaged pumps can cause catastrophes. If your pump stops working, please give us a call and let us help.
  3. Cleaning filters and servicing equipment can be a daunting task. Some of our clients don’t want to keep track of it. We regularly service the filters, pumps, skimmers, and sterilizers, top off water levels, and keep everything running beautifully.
  4. We protect your investment by addressing issues promptly. If we maintain your water feature for you, we can keep an eye on little things that may have gone unnoticed. These little things can add up OR lead to larger things.
  5. Aesthetics is key. We want your pond to be as beautiful as it ever was, so regular cleaning and maintenance will help keep it appealing, which will create a more welcoming environment for your and/or your guests.
