Koi ponds require time, even as a hobby. Today most people don’t have enough time to devote to maintaining a healthy pond on a strict schedule. On Golden Pond has the expertise to work with you as much or as little as you wish, from design and construction to scheduled maintenance programs. Maintaining Your Pond Pond service is scheduled once every week, once every two weeks, quarterly, biyearly or yearly. It all depends on the size of the pond, the gallons of water it holds, fish density, plant life, etc. Annual clean-outs are indispensable for the health of your Koi and pond or water garden. This major clean-out consists of removing the fish and acclimatizing them to a new environment outside the pond. Removing all the plants. Draining the pond. Washing out all the mud and muck from rocks and waterfalls which house bacteria and parasites that cause the Koi illness. Cleaning the filtration system will reduce excessive biofilm and trapped debris. After this is completed, we rearrange the rock formations and water plants and reacclimatize the fish back into their new, clean environment. If you’re a do-it-yourself kind of guy, you may not need regular maintenance. But you will need a complete biannual or annual pond and filter cleaning. We recommend a Spring and Fall cleaning for the optimum health of the pond, plants and Koi. On Golden Pond is here to help you, but be sure to book ahead of time because we get really busy specially during Spring and Summer .
