Posted by CanopiesAnd Tarps on Apr 9th 2014

With spring upon us, its time to examine your propertys water gardens and containment ponds. If they are looking a little murky and lifeless, a good spring clean out andpond linerreplacement may be in order. Heres how to get the project underway:

Because liners are an essential part of water gardens and containment ponds, wed suggest ordering them at least two to three weeks in advance of the scheduled clean out. That way, if the pond liner does appear to need replacing, you wont be waiting on the delivery man to arrive.In addition to replacement pond liners, youll want to have other clean out supplies on hand too. Wed recommend having an assortment of scrub brushes, buckets, holding tanks, scoops, rakes and a garden hose. Depending on the size of the pond or garden, a clean-out pump may also prove to be helpful.

Once you have your supplies, use the buckets, rakes and scoops to remove the water and surface debris. Any viable aquatic life should be removed too. They may be temporarily placed inside of holding tanks. When you finally reach the pond liner, carefully clean and hose off it off as well. Any residual water and cleaning residue should also be removed at this time.While youre doing so, examine the pond liners surface for signs of weak spots, holes, tears and other imperfections. If you find any, go ahead and replace the entire pond liner with one of ours. Our polyethylene pond liners are extremely durable. So the likelihood that youll end up with leaks and other problems in between clean outs is extremely low.

After that, clean your ponds filters and start replacing the water. Then check the waters purity and temperature and make adjustments as needed. When everything seems to be back in pristine order, go ahead and return the ponds flora and fauna back to their respective homes.
