Pond cleaning, building and maintenance
Water features and ponds make for such a fantastic addition to any garden, whatever size they are. Also, they are great for wildlife even if you have fish the two can go hand in hand.
Keeping your pond at its best can be a daunting task. Cleaning a pond is very hard work, and always extremely muddy!
Handy we are good with mud then…

Complete pond clean outs
A clean out involves removing all the fish into a temporary pond and removing all the muck and mud at the bottom of the pond. Once the fish are safe and comfortable in a temporary pond, we pressure wash the liner and inspect for leaks. At this point we would notify you if we found any issues. Rocks are then cleaned along with the surrounding area. Waterfalls and features will also be cleaned as well as tidying and repotting pond plants.
Making sure the filtration system is cleaned and replacing UV tubes is also important maintenance. Once everything is clean we then put it all back in place, safely, add the fish when its time and leave it looking lovely and clean.
Choosing and fitting filters
Advise you on the best type of filtration for your pond can be provided, and we can plumb it all in for you. An aim is to always recommend the most efficient filter for your system, rather than the latest or cheapest!
Whilst designing or building your pond, we can help you plan the best position for your filter and advise how to hide the pipework. If you are choosing to have a brick built pond, we can also fit bottom drains so they will work efficiently for you. We can also retrofit them into a pond that’s built with a liner rather than bricks. Don’t worry though, if you already have your pond we can always help to improve your filter system.
Relining and fixing leaks
If you call us because your pond is leaking, there are several options we can offer. Due to our extensive experience and knowledge, we will firstly talk to you and assess what your thought on the leak are. It is likely, we can usually identify where the leak by doing this before starting work. Then, we can evaluate the cheapest and easiest option to get your pond working well again.
Initially, we can monitor the water levels to see if we can identify where the leak is. Consequently, if your pond is leaking, we would often use our temporary pond system, to empty your pond and thoroughly check the liner. During experience, we have found this is the best way to make sure the liner is fitted correctly, with no leaks and is easy to maintain in the future. Often, it is possible to fix leaks in a pond without having to spend out on a new liner and we have been able to do this on several occasions. Furthermore, if you need a new liner rather than fixing it we will tell you and make sure it is correctly installed.
