A pond is a wonderful addition to your garden. Especially in the spring and summer, water provides a nice and relaxing atmosphere when sitting outside the house. But as every gardening enthusiast knows, we have to work for such a beautiful, clear pond. Attention should be paid to the growth of plants and condition of fish. Cleaning the pond is also a job that you should not delay for too long.

Why keep the water in a pond clean?

Ponds require regular care. Especially small ones need to be cleaned often (less water, much biomass in a small space). Garden ponds tend to heat up in summer very quickly. High water temperatures and high nutrient content lead to strong algae growth and poor water values. The larger the pond, the lower the effort required for pond maintenance. Yet, having a water purification system can help a lot in pond water maintenance.

Pond cleaning: regular maintenance

It is also important to limit the growth of the floating algae as much as possible. Especially if your pond is in the sun, it can suffer from algae, and these can also endanger the biological balance. Therefore, if you want to take good care of your pond, you should use pond pumps.

The pump is like energy for your pond. It not only transports water but also ensures healthy circulation. Pond pumps are often connected to the filtration system. Pond pumps can also be used to connect several ponds. Water games or fountains also require a pump.

Prevent algae growth

To prevent algae growth, remember to remove the dead plants from the pond regularly. Pond pumps available at garden stores will also help you get rid of algae.

What is a pond pump for?

Pond pumps are the heart of a garden pond, and they are essential to keep the water clean. They are considered small powerhouses and can be used in many ways. Pond pumps are used both in small and large pond systems, and play a crucial role for a healthy water climate.

A pump should be powerful enough, so the garden owner doesn’t have to buy a new product in the next season. In conjunction with a filter system, your pond pump is part of the cleaning system against bacteria and algae.

Why should you own a pond pump?

A pump together with a filter system is indispensable if you want to keep pond water clean. But even without a filter system, a pump is the heart of the pond because it can move the water against gravity. Furthermore, you can also use a pump for water games or to connect several ponds.

Are there more benefits of a pond pump?

The pond pump ensures good water circulation, and this prevents stagnant water. The other advantage is clear water. The dirt from the bottom is more likely to reach the filter due to the circulation. This ensures optimum use of the filter, ensuring clear and healthy pond water.

Oxygen for clear water

Without oxygen, there is no underwater life in your pond.

To deliver oxygen to your pond, you can also use oxygen plants which keep the pond water clear and maintain the natural balance.

Some oxygen plants, such as waterweed, produce a substance that inhibits the growth of algae.

Also, plants make up the nutrients in the water, so that algae have less chances. Oxygen plants provide shelter for useful small aquatic animals.

Water lilies

Don't be too frugal with plants in your pond! If you cover at least 30 percent of the water surface with floating plants such as water lilies, the pond remains nice and cool in the summer and algae have little chance. If your plants don’t grow well, it can mean that the CO2 content in the water is too low.

Four-season maintenance of a pond

A natural pond needs some maintenance every season. What can you do during each of the season?

Spring

Place new water plants if necessary.

Summer

If it’s hot for a long time, keep an eye on the water level and top up with tap water.

Autumn

Clean the pond and stretch a net over it against the leaf litter. Allow removed pond material to drain on the side for another day so that aquatic animals can escape.

Winter

Rotting gases must have a way to leave the pond, even when it is freezing. Therefore, leave in the pond hollow, tall plant stems during the fall cleaning. And keep a hole in the ice by, for example, placing a rubber ball on the water (don't cut a hole, this will disturb plant and animal life). You can also remove the snow so that light continues to fall on the water.

Conclusion

As you can see, proper maintenance of water is crucial if you want to have a nice looking pond. Therefore, if you clean up the water regularly and install the pond pump, your pond will be the most elegant place in the garden.
