FALL POND WINTERIZATION
Fall pond winterization or " pond closing" is a proactive measure that will promote long term pond health and water clarity.
Most ponds with plants have bad a decent growing season and lots of leaves, stems and roots are now needed to be cut back. Any organic matter left in the pond will decay and can be very toxic to fish and other aquatic life. Any leaves that are falling into the pond should netted out. A complete and thorough cleanout of the skimmer box and biofalls is a wise thing to do at this time. Cleaning the pump and draining the water from the lines should be considered also to previous not any freezing damage.
Fall cleaning is the best way to ensure your pond stays balanced. Proper fall maintenance is an important step in keeping a healthy and clean pond. Adding the right pond treatments and cleaning the pond before it ices over is the best way to ensure you have excellent water quality going into winter and will help reduce the risk of algae growth the following spring. Even if you don't have plants or fish, fall cleaning will help you save lots of money and stress and will help get you the water clarity you want.
Too many people wait until spring to clean the pond. Leaving the leaves and muck in your pond can be disastrous, causing an imbalance in the pond's natural cycle resulting in toxic algae blooms and excess nutrients in the water. Closing your pond for the season properly is the most important step in maintaining a healthy pond.
