*During the PCO service your pond technicians will use caution while netting, temporarily housing and acclimating your fish and other pond life. Temporary fish storage will be no less than a 100 gallon tub with aeration and a mesh cover. Fish are transferred with Koi quality nets and are stored in the existing pond water. After slowly matching temperature, we make every reasonable effort to bowl the fish carefully into the cleaned pond. We cannot be held responsible for any scratches, scuffs, cloudy eyes, parasites, re-injuries, ulcerations, or loss of life Because your fish are living creatures, there are many factors beyond our control which may cause death or injury to your fish. We do share your disappointment, but cannot share your loss. By requesting our service you accept this risk.
