There is nothing worse than a dirty koi pond. And if there is rain in your forecast, all you can do is cross your fingers and hope Mother Nature decides to be kind.
But, what do you do if the storms come anyway? How can you quickly and effectively clean your pond after the storms have passed?
If you notice that your pond is constantly looking dirty, there are a variety of common reasons this could be happening:
- Your plants are dying and you are not properly cleaning out the debris
- Mother Nature took her chance to wreak havoc on your pond surface
- Crevices in your pond liner are hiding dirt and sludge
- Your rocks are hiding bacteria and muck
So, is it hopeless? No! The answer to a dirty pond is easier than you think. The number one way to help your pond stay healthy, clean and beautiful is by investing in a quality pond filter. If you are experiencing issues with the cleanliness of your pond, it’s time to re-evaluate the effectiveness of your current pond filter.
The better your pond pump works, the cleaner your pond will be. A pond filter is designed to clean out all the sludge and debris that occurs from storms, dead plants and other issues.
It’s really that simple! Make sure you only buy the very best pond filters for your pond so you can spend more time enjoying your backyard water garden and less time watching the forecast.
