SpringCleanoutIf you chose not to have a professional spring cleanout performed by Purely Ponds Fine Landscapes, we highly recommend you do a simple self cleanout to your water feature. Follow these steps:

  • Unplug pump.
  • Disassemble rockwork atop the Biofilter.
  • Remove all filter media and rinse very thoroughly.
  • Remove skimmer pre-filter pad and rinse very thoroughly.
  • Siphon or pump out approximately 25% of the water into your landscape.
  • Thoroughly net as much debris as possible out off of your pond bottom and/or streambed.
  • Trim back any dead or decaying plant material.
  • Refill the water feature. If you have fish in your pond, use de-chlorinator.

Oct-26-2006

Disconnect the auto fill line during freezing temperatures in order to prevent damage to your household plumbing.

Trim dead plant material before it begins rotting in the water. Trim a few inches above the water line.
Note: Attractive fall foliage is fine to be left until spring or cut as needed.

Keep water full. Be especially proactive just before and during extended cold snaps. Generally fill the day before the coldest weather and the day after, if it is going to be an extended extreme cold period.
Note: If the ice drops below the level of the full water line, just fill up over top of the ice.

Switch from using Hydro-Topia Dry Bacteria to Cold Temp Hydro-Topia Liquid Bacteria. Continue to use Eco-Buster and Eco-Vescence as needed.

In most cases, do not chip or break ice. The only exception is in the rare case of an ice dam or ice diverting water over the edge of the liner.
Note: Generally placing an object (rock) on the opening or to redirect the water will solve this problem.

For ponds, install an energy efficient floating pond de-icer just off to the side of the skimmer opening to prevent ice blockage during extreme extended cold periods.
Note: Do not place directly in front of skimmer opening, as it would interfere with skimmer operation.

Instructions for Optional Winter Shut Down

PONDLESS WATERFALLS: Disconnect and remove pump from housing and store in a pail of water in a non-freezing location. Use a pump to drain the basin.

PONDS: Disconnect and remove pump from skimmer and store in a pail of water in a non-freezing location. For aquatic life, install an energy efficient pond de-icer and a smaller pump or a larger air stone that breaks the surface of the water for oxygenation.
