2017 POND CLEAN-OUT

Cleaning out your pond in the fall is essential for maintaining good water quality over the colder months. Any accumulated debris has a bigger impact in cold temperatures because beneficial bacteria and oxygen levels naturally drop in cold weather. The colder it gets in your area will determine what you need.

For a basic pond cleaning and fall water prep you will need 3 essentials:

1. A POND VACUUM or SKIMMING NET

A pond vacuum is one of the best things you can do for your pond. Our top sellers are the Muck Vac and Pond O Vac 4. Skimming nets work well if you have easy access to the bottom of your pond from all sides.

2. MICROBELIFT AUTUMN/WINTER PREP

ensures sustained biological activity in water temperatures below 55 degrees. This ‘good’ bacteria and enzyme product is essential in maintaining healthy oxygen levels over winter. It works by consuming decomposed leaves and organic waste that are essentially oxygen thieves.
