Fish Pond Spring Cleaning


Spring is just around the corner here in the Wading River area of Suffolk County, Long Island, NY, and before you know it you will be outside enjoying the weather and all the wonder and excitement of your beautiful pond again, which brings us to the topic of preparing your Suffolk & Nassau County, New York area pond for Spring and the upcoming season. We recommend that your pond receive a full professional cleaning at least once, on occasion twice per year to help maintain its low maintenance and beautiful appearance. Failure to perform an annual clean-out could result in increased maintenance or fish health issues.


All customers receive a custom price quote for their clean-out. If we have serviced your pond in the past, or if we installed your pond, we can give you a cost for your cleaning once you have contacted us. If you are a new customer we will require a pond profile to familiarize ourselves with your pond and to give you an accurate Spring Pond Maintenance price. If you would like to hire Sound Shore Pond to perform your spring maintenance services, please fill out our contact form to receive your clean-out Pricing or a Pond Profile.


What is the Process?


Some of you know what this entails, but for those that are new to water gardening here is the rundown:

• FIRST (and most importantly!) get your name on the Spring Clean out roster. We service hundreds of water gardens, beginning when the ice thaws, so waiting is NOT your best option!

• We will call or email you (from the info you provide on the info form) to schedule a pond profile, or to give you your pond clean cost.

• You will need to submit your Spring Pond Clean out deposit in order to get on our calendar.

• Once your deposit is received you will need to complete the Consult Form to provide details of your specific pond needs and to request a Day/Time for your Spring Pond-Maintenance.

• On pond clean-out day, be sure to have your garden hose outside, waterfall pump(s) and other components readily available and your water garden electrical outlet turned on.

Sound Shore Pond now gets down & dirty with your water feature! We will drain the water (temporarily housing the fish if you have them). The next step is to give the water feature a quick pressure washing and rinse (we don’t want to remove every bit of the beneficial Bio-Film). Once washed down they will trim back and fertilize aquatic plants, check and replace underwater light bulbs or fixtures, re-adjust rocks & gravel and finally install the waterfall pump. When all of this is finished, they will begin refilling the water feature (and re-introducing your fish if you have them). Any requested water treatment products will be left for you.

• If your water garden includes a pond with fish, upon finishing your cleanout we will refill the pond with enough water to re-introduce your fish. For larger ponds, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR FINISHING THE FILLING PROCESS AND PLUGGING IN THE WATERFALL PUMP (We have estimated your labor costs based on this assumption to keep your clean out costs to a minimum).
