Essential Ponds Suffolk offer complete pond maintenance packages which can be a yearly visit to carry out a complete clear out of the pond, including re-potting of plants, replacing UV tubes/bulbs, cleaning pumps and filters, to 12, 1 monthly visits maintaining filtration systems and carrying out algae & pond treatments.

After an initial site meeting, we can put together a complete pond package that caters for your exact needs, in order for your pond to maintain its beauty throughout the year.

Some of the yearly pond maintenance packages we currently offer include Plant control (thinning, removal, dividing, re-planting, re-potting), spring & autumn Siltex treatments (Natural Clay Lined ponds only), pond pump servicing, water testing, Filter cleaning, ultraviolet (UV) tube replacement, complete yearly cleaning (if required) and algae treatments.

Both the natural pond and domestic pond maintenance contracts benefit from a spring and an autumn visit unless any issues occur during the year.
