If you own a pond or looking to have one made on your property, you need to know how to clean a pond. This is especially true if you have young children or seniors in your household or building. So, the more effort you put into keeping a clean pond, the healthier it will be for everyone.
Cleaning a Pond on Your Property
The first thing you need to do is figure out what material things are in your pond. Remove any debris floating on top and pull out any large objects you can identify submerged in the pond. Once you have done a preliminary clean, you can get started on a more thorough clean.
Remove any plants that have grown in the pond to see the damage caused by the roots done to the pond, and then fill the divot with dirt.
You will also need to make sure that the water is running correctly in the pond. Most ponds will need a pump to keep them filled. Depending on the size of the pond will determine the size of the pump. Smaller pumps are easier to clean with standard industrial cleaning products.
After the pump is cleaned, you should also put in a new filter to continue cleaning out any of the waste products that are in the water. This includes algae, which is an enemy of fish. It is essential to change the filter regularly. This will help keep your pond looking its best and make it easier for you to maintain it properly.
