What is an exploratory pond cleaning in Oklahoma City?
Why Would You Consider An Exploratory Pond Cleaning In Oklahoma?
An exploratory cleaning is a lot like a traditional pond cleaning, but more detailed and you get more information at the end. We will map out your pond and its equipment, keep this information in our database for future use, and make sure that you have all the information for your records.
Exploratory pond cleanings are done for quite a few reasons in Oklahoma City. Perhaps your pond has not been serviced regularly. Or maybe you purchased a house with a pond and don’t know much about it. There could be a leak in the pond and you’re not sure how to find or repair it. Or possibly you just don’t really know what the previous pond professional did.
So what exactly does exploratory pond cleaning involve?
Well, our whole approach to pond ownership is to encourage responsibility and enjoyment of your water feature. After all, that’s what having a water feature is supposed to be all about…having a unique and interesting environment that the entire family can enjoy. That’s easy to do when you make the choice to add a water feature to your Oklahoma City property, but what about when you inherit someone else’s system?
It can be intimidating to suddenly be confronted with a pond when you know absolutely nothing about how to care for them. If there are other factors added into the mix, such as fish, plant life or features like waterfalls that can complicate matters even more. Well, we don’t ever want your water feature to become a source of stress, so that’s why we offer what is basically a guided pond cleaning, where our experts walk you through the process and help you understand everything you need to know about your pond.
With this service, our team of Service Technicians will come to your home and perform a pond cleaning.
We’ll start by draining your Oklahoma City pond and removing any aquatic life, such as fish or frogs, to holding tanks. Then we can get a closer look at the structure of the pond itself. We’ll closely examine every aspect of the structure from filtration and pump equipment to plant life to the rocks themselves and explain all of it to you in as much detail as you require.
Having the pond drained of water during the exploratory pond cleaning will also allow us to take a closer look at the pond liner and determine what kind of shape it is in. If there are any liner issues to address this would be the time to do so. The important thing is to ensure that your pond is capable of holding water so that plants and fish in the pond won’t be in any danger. During this exploratory pond cleaning, we’ll be able to evaluate the filtration and pump system and make sure it is adequate for the needs of the pond as well as make any necessary repairs.
There may be any number of findings from this pond cleaning, including whether the pump motor was functioning properly if any filter screens were missing or damaged, and if the pond was extremely dirty or had buildups of algae or any other harmful substances. We’ll be able to address any of these issues and make sure you understand exactly how to maintain your pond so that these conditions don’t crop up again.
Once any problems have been addressed, we’ll complete the exploratory pond cleaning by refilling the pond and returning the aquatic life carefully, allowing any fish to properly adjust to the change in water temperature.
Then we’ll be able to give you advice and instruction on how to care for your fish, frogs and other living things. Remember, a pond isn’t just a decorative feature it is, in fact, a growing and changing ecosystem, and it requires regular care and maintenance to remain healthy.
