Cleaning & Servicing Ponds | Pond Squad is our cleaning and servicing department specializing in pond and pondless cleaning, and maintenance.  In addition to the complete cleaning ponds and waterfalls, the scope of our work includes pump replacement, filter and UV installation, leak detection and pondless makeovers.

It’s very important for ponds to be cleaned out at least once a year.  The best time of year for this is mid February through late May.  The inclement weather of fall and winter inevitably will wreak havoc on a pond, dropping leaves and debris into it.  If the leaves and debris don’t get cleaned out, the natural break down of this organic matter can cause poor water quality and become toxic for fish.

When Pond Squad cleans a pond & waterfall, we catch your fish and put them in our holding tank, we power wash everything from the top of the spillway to the bottom of the basin, and then we shovel and vacuum out any sludge and sediment from the basin.  We check your pump to make sure it’s free of debris and working properly.  We cut back any overgrown aquatic plants.  We clean your biological filter and replace old filter media if necessary.  After we’ve thoroughly cleaned the pond, we will refill it and add chlorine remover and organic beneficial bacteria and carefully put your fish back in their pond.  Your pond will look like new when Pond Squad is finished with it.
