A few times a year it can actually be quite nice to go through everything and clean up a little bit in order to get ready for the upcoming months. Most of the time people do this randomly around spring because they are more in the mood to go through the process of cleaning but generally there is not that much of a reason for the cleaning process to happen at one time or another. That is unless you are talking about certain things around your home, like your water garden for example. Making sure that your water garden goes through spring cleaning is actually relatively important and actually quite important that it happens in spring. This is because even if you live in a place that doesn’t go through a particularly harsh winter, spring is the time where everything comes back to life and everything starts to grow again. If your water garden is in bad shape when this happens, you can face any number of problems like an algae growth or sick fish if your water garden features any kind of fish or other living thing.
Depending on the kind of water garden that you have in your yard and how experienced you are with it, you might decide to try to do a little bit of spring cleaning on your own or you might try to hire a professional from a place like Purely Ponds. If you are generally a bit new to the whole water garden and pond thing, it is probably a good idea to first have a professional handle it and then start to learn about how to possibly do these things yourself in the future. If you hire a pond professional like the ones from Purely Ponds, there are a few basic things that they are going to do in order to make sure that your pond is going to go back to being in tip top shape.
First and foremost, it’s always important to remember to unplug the pump. This is something that a lot of people miss their first time around and it can end up with a lot of problems down the line so it is extra important that if you are trying to do this yourself, that you don’t forget this step. The next thing that they are going to do is to disassemble the rockwork on top of the biofilter. Once they can get to the filter, they can rinse it off and get it cleaned up. The filter is where most of the gunk and debris collects so this can be incredibly important. The next thing that will be done is to remove the skimmer pre filter and make sure that’s clean as well. Then it’s up to cleaning the water. This can be done both by removing about twenty five percent of the water in your water garden, then cleaning out all of the remaining water by skimming the top, removing debris and everything else. Once the water is clean, they will make sure that all of the features around your water garden are cleaned up and in good shape as well and then refill your water garden.
