All water features are different – including small ponds and large lakes. No water feature is constructed with similar principles, nor is the service we provide for the relative pond or lake. Ponds are typically small bodies of water, built with a rubber or cement undergarment (ideally both) to keep water in the basins. Similar to that of a large Jacuzzi or small pool, a pond is typically constructed the same way. In an ideal world, the “returns” (the part of the pond which connects to the filter) will be placed correctly and throughout the basin as this will help keep your maintenance visits and backwash cycles down.
If you are interested in a “lake” typically these are not built with rubber or cement, instead these are constructed with compact water-proof soils. Clay-like soils which must be tested before any water is added to ensure there will be no leaks associated with the large body of water. Some isolated instances, properties will use a large rubber liner (sometimes over 30mm thick) to line the soil but this can become very costly if not performed correctly. Some lakes are self-filtered through organic material such a bacteria and other natural processes, yet we always recommend additional filtration to help keep the ecosystem under control.

Residential Pond Management
Most residential ponds we service range from 1,000 – 5,000 gallons of water. Typically these water features are natural (non chemically treated) and hold fish or turtles. Some ponds we service are non-wildlife bearing, and more decorative but are also under our water feature service umbrella.
Over the last 5 years we’ve been perfecting our “small-pond service” – typically any residential water feature with a basin holding under 10,000 gallons of water. These water features typically do not need more than 2 visits per month, and depending on how it was constructed, won’t need a thorough cleaning more than 1-2x per year. Maintenance is heavily dependent on how the pond was built. If for example, your pond is full of fish and turtles, and running on a “cookie-cutter” submersible pump, without a UV-light, and very little circulation, then you might need a thorough cleaning every 2 months.
We do our best to walk your system and review the current standing of many factors which equate to a clear pond and happy pond owner. Contact us today for a free pond review.
Commercial Fountain Maintenance
Installing a commercial fountain for your apartment complex, HOA, cemetery, and other public areas is a great way to increase local property value and beauty. We find that property management companies throughout Southern California with water features on the property, are able to increase the monthly cost of rent by up to 10-15% when having a stream, or fountain.
These are great options as the water depth can be below 36″ to avoid any potential drownings, while also increasing the value perceived when walking the property. With almost year-round sun in our area – commercial fountains are relatively easy to maintain, repair, and construct compared to locations with heavy seasons. We service both natural and chemically treated water features for both commercial and residential properties, feel free to give us a call today to get a free service or installation quote.
n your property can be a focal point to say none the less. While DIY ponds are very fun to build and maintain, our most common clients are a “DIY pond builder” who needs help one something yet might need a rebuild because vital parts of the system are compromised.
