Your pond maintenance schedule
Fish ponds require periodic maintenance to keep them healthy and looking good.
Every pond is different, but perhaps once per month, you should test the pH of the pond to make sure it is around 6.8 - 7.4. Chemicals can be added to the water if the pH falls outside of this range.
Ammonia should be tested as well, and should always be between 0 - 0.5

Leaves should be netted out of the pond every now and then, and your filters should be back washed if they are of the pressure variety. Some gravity filters only require cleaning every year or so, so check with us if you are unsure.
Ultraviolet lamps should be changed annually. Purchase your UV globes from us here!
Most ponds would also benefit from being totally cleaned out every now and then.
