Spring Clean-out Process & Water Feature Maintenance

At Acorn Ponds & Waterfalls, we will do a Pond Analysis during the spring pond cleaning and maintenance service visit. This will include looking for any possible problems that could occur down the road and take care of them before they are an issue. While the pond is drained, this is a good time to check any underwater lighting fixtures and replace bulbs or fixtures as necessary. If your lighting is old, we can replace it with modern LED low voltage lighting that is very economical to run and looks fabulous at night.
If you are having string algae problems, we can install a copper ionizer while your pond is drained and you will be amazed at how much better your pond looks and how much easier it is to maintain. Speaking of easier to maintain, we can install an Automated Bacteria Doser to your pond so that you don't have to remember to add it every week. It will automatically add a couple of drops of beneficial bacteria every day to ensure a healthy balanced ecosystem. Also, be sure to check out our pond filtration page and learn how to reduce your pond maintenance, keep your pond looking good and your fish healthy.
