Other Pond Maintenance Price Factors

Every pond is unique, and yours is no exception.

Here are some of what can cause your pond maintenance costs to vary.

Size has a lot to do with cost. If you have a larger pond, this means there is more surface area, muck, and debris to clean. More manpower and time means a higher price. On the flip side, if you have a small pond that stays fairly clean it can be much less expensive to maintain.

Don’t forget about your fish! More fish results in more waste and more cleaning. Ponds with high numbers of large koi have full cleans during the spring and fall with a filter cleaning in the summer.

Pond maintenance is important to the overall health of your pond’s ecosystem.
