spring pond maintenance
As the days get longer with more hours of sunlight, the water starts to get warmer bringing your pond back to life. Now is the time for general maintenance on your pond in order to prepare for a healthy summer for your fish and plants and a beautiful feature for you to enjoy.
When the water temperature warms to around 100C and before any life start to emerge from its winter dormant state begin cleaning by removing any debris that has fallen to the bottom of the pond. If left it will cause a rise in nutrient levels, which can lead to algae growth as summer begins. You can use a pond vac or skimmer net to remove this debris. Don't worry about being 100% thorough as a complete cleaning will upset the natural balance and algae control. Take a pH test of your water which should be around 8.0.
Check that all pond equipment is working efficiently as is and clean and that your filter has no leaks and is running at a proper flow rate. As the water warms to a stable temperature, start feeding your fish again, and restock your plants. To further improve the water quality and maintain sparkling water clarity, we recommend a pond maintenance product like Aquaclean or Pondbrite. We stock these two specialist products that work in an environmentally friendly way. They have no harmful chemicals and can be used by everyone, no operator's licence or permit is needed. The good news is that:
Fragile Earth is a distributor of Bionetix products in the UK. For Aquaclean and Pondbrite see the Pond Maintenance category; for Septic Tank Treatment, see the Septic Tank Treatment category. For advice call: 0845 2238801.
