In nature, spring rains fill streams and rivers, which, in turn, flush out the lakes and ponds.
This is nature’s way of preparing for a new season of life.
Your ponds and disappearing waterfalls need help to go through this same process.

What’s included in a Spring Pond Clean-Out?
Although your specific needs may vary, here’s generally what the Splash Supply team does during spring pond clean-outs:
- Gently transfer your fish into a netted and aerated holding tank, then return them after the clean-out is complete
- Flush remaining pond water
- Rinse rocks and gravel and remove debris
- Clean filters, filter pads, pumps and skimmers
- Replace bulbs in underwater lights as needed (bulb cost is in addition to clean-out price)
- Use your garden hose to refill pond. You simply turn off the hose and plug in the pump when the pond is full.
We can also address issues like pond liner leaks, sick koi fish, broken pumps, broken pond lights and green water, as well as perform upgrades on waterfalls, streams, lighting, skimmers or pumps (some services may involve additional costs).
Why do I need to clean my pond in the spring?
An annual clean-out helps your pond start the season fresh and healthy. And early spring – ideally before the water temperatures creep above 55 degrees – is the best time to make it happen.
A full clean-out involves moving your fish, cleaning your pond and replenishing the water. You can either do it yourself – Splash Supply’s experts would be happy to help you with supplies and advice – or schedule a time for our team to do it for you.
Your pond is a natural living ecosystem. The clean out process mimics the way streams and rivers are naturally cleaned by heavy spring rains and melting snow. The goal of the clean out is to flush excess muck and debris that have built up over the past year. This is important in a closed ecosystem. Your pond technicians will be careful to leave as much biofilm as possible. This biofilm is a natural, normal, and expected part of a happy ecosystem. This will help your ecosystem get reestablished and in balance quickly so your fish are happy and healthy.
