Spring Pond Cleaning – Essex, MA

Posted by on May 29, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

We are back at the This Old House pond installation site from a few year back. We open and close this pond every year as part of the spring pond cleaning routine and stock it with plant, fish and whatever else the clients want that year.


Spring cleaning involves changing the water, testing, adding supplements, checking the equipment and adding new plants. We normally do this in a few visits over a couple weeks.

Pond cleaning and maintenance is key to keeping the system clean and healthy throughout the year. Routine maintenance ensures that equipment will run smoothly and last for years and that the fish and plants will thrive all season long!
