Let Mike’s Evergreen Help You Answer: When is it time to clean the pond?
Ponds of all sizes need to be cleaned at least once a year. While spring is a great time to clean your pond, some ponds need cleaning 2-3 times per year in order to maintain an healthy ecosystem.
Over time, both muck and debris build up. For instance, leaves, dirt, and fish waste all break down in your pond.
Then, they release harmful toxins. For example, both nitrites and ammonia. These chemicals contribute to algae. The amount of sunlight that enters the water also has an effect on how much algae will build up.
Don’t let toxins ruin your backyard pond.
