Spring Fish and Koi Pond Cleaning and Spring Pond Start-Up Services (NJ) Serving Morris, Hunterdon, and Somerset County, NJ
Spring is simply the most exciting time of year here in Northern New Jersey. As our fish ponds slowly awaken from their winter hibernation, there are some things that you can do to make sure your fish and koi pond gets off to a good start this spring, this includes performing a full spring fish pond cleaning or a spring pond start-up.
Does your New Jersey fish pond need a full spring pond cleaning this season or does it just need to be tidied up a little? There are a couple of things that you can look for to help you decide. First, if there is a layer of “crud” at the bottom of the pond and the water is dark in color, it would be a good idea to do a full clean-out. On the other hand, if there is just a small amount of debris that you can stir up and capture with a net and the water looks clear, a little tidying up is all that’s in order and a spring start-up will suffice.

Platinum Spring Pond Service (Full Pond Cleaning) If you’re new to the hobby you may be asking yourself, What is a Full Spring Pond Cleaning?
1. FIRST (and most importantly!) get your name on the Full Pond Spring Cleaning list. We service dozens of water gardens beginning when the ice thaws, so waiting is NOT your best option!
2. We will call or email you (from the info you provide on the info form) prior to your clean-out to confirm exactly what services and products you will require.
3. On pond cleaning day, be sure to have your garden hose outside (and the water turned on!), waterfall pump(s) and other components readily available and your water garden electrical outlet turned on.
4. A Frog’s Dream Aquatic Services will now get crazy 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 we will trim back aquatic plants, check and replace underwater light bulbs or fixtures, re-adjust rocks & gravel, clean filters, perform pump maintenance cleaning, and finally install the waterfall pump. When all of this is finished, we will add de-chlorinator to the water, begin refilling the water feature (and re-introducing your fish if you have them). We will also add an initial dose of Algaecide, Flocculant and Sludge Bacteria to aid in getting the pond ready for the season.
5. If your water garden includes a pond with fish, upon finishing your pond cleaning we will refill the pond with enough water to re-introduce your fish. YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR FINISHING THE FILLING PROCESS AND PLUGGING IN THE WATERFALL PUMP.
Our Platinum Spring Services are based on the size of pond and other factors. The Platinum Services start at $775.00 for a pond up to 80 SF, $1000.00 for a pond up to 160 SF, and $1,350.00 for a pond up to 300 SF.
Gold Spring Pond Service (Spring Pond Start-up with Filter Clean) What is a Spring Pond Start-Up?
There is one main difference between our Gold Spring Pond service and our Platinum Spring Pond Service. We don’t drain the pond and power wash it during our gold Spring Pond Service. Other than that we perform many of the same services during a spring pond start-up as we do on a full spring pond clean-out which include:
Washing filter pads or replace if needed (pads not included) , Replace U.V. bulb if applicable (bulb not included) , Clean waterfall of leaves and sticks, Trim aquatic plants, Reconnect pump and start up filtration system, Perform pump maintenance cleaning, Check pond lights and replace bulbs if needed. Check the overall condition of the pond to make sure all components are running well. Get your pond up and running for the season by adding an initial dose of Algaecide, Flocculant and Sludge Bacteria.
If you don’t need a Full Pond Cleaning, this service is sure to get your pond off to a great start in the spring.
Our Gold Spring Services are based on the size of pond and other factors. The Gold Spring Service starts at $575.00 for most ponds up to 300 SF For a free quote please click here and submit our quote request form.
