Now that summer has arrived in Rochester New York (NY), there are things that you need to remember about your water feature in order to keep a balanced ecosystem pond along with happy fish! Take a moment to refresh your memory with these 5 critically important tips.
Often, people do not realize how much water can evaporate from a pond during the dog days of summer.
The Eastern states typically lose 1 to 1.5″ of water each week.
Pond owners in the hot, arid Southwest have reported evaporation levels in excess of 3″ a week.
Remember, these are averages. Some ponds may not experience evaporation levels this high. Other ponds with large pumps pushing high volumes of water, or ponds designed with multiple waterfalls and a lot of cascades and splashing may have evaporation rates much greater than these.
