If you are more hands on, but just require support with the care program, we offer less frequent maintenance visits, or our bi—annual seasonal cleaning program, whereby we visit twice per year and prepare your pond for the summer/winter ahead. You still need to do the monthly care, but it takes the pressure off knowing we are keeping an eye occasionally.
If your pond has got to the point where a deep thorough clean is necessary, The Pond Guys can totally drain, clean and service everything to restart your pond on the right track. These can also be helpful if you are installing a new filtration system, to ensure the filter does not get overwhelmed with the existing conditions.
We also recommend this is carried out on all ponds, regardless of the system, every 3-5 years, to keep everything happy and thriving. We keep your fish in a luxury vat for their holiday away from the pond, and always use this opportunity to check the pond structure and lining.
Whatever your requirements, give The Pond Guys a call. We are happy to talk through our services and answer any questions you may have. Our friendly knowledgeable team will always be happy to help, even with just advice!
