seasonal pond maintenance
Pond water evaporates in the summer, leading to the water level dropping. This means a reduced surface area that can be damaging for fish, as there is not so much oxygen. Top up the pond as necessary, preferably using rainwater, as tap water is rich in nutrients, which mean algae will thrive.
If you do have to use tap water and you keep fish, add the tap water gradually in small amounts to prevent the cold liquid shocking the fish in the pond. At night, if it is hot, spray water over the pool's surface from a hose to break the surface and improve oxygen levels in the water.
Weeds can quickly cover the surface of a pond if left, so drag them out with a stick or use a net to scoop them out. Leave them on the side of the pond overnight, so that larger creatures can find their way back to the water. A quick rinse in some pond water will also release small creatures, which can then be returned to the pool.
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. Coming soon, our guide to autumn pond maintenance.
