Large Pond Assessments & Consulting

If you have a large, natural pond that is overgrown with weeds or algae, or has cloudy or green water,  you are not alone. Once ponds reach about 10 years of age, weeds and algae often overtake the pond, becoming a real eyesore. If you aren’t sure what to do to fix the problem, or even where to start, look no further.

We provide professional pond consultations and complete pond assessments to determine the cause of the issues your are having with your pond. We also sell effective large pond treatments, install floating fountains, aeration systems and even offer large pond maintenance and custom treatment programs.

Whether you use your pond for swimming, fishing, recreation or just appreciate its natural beauty, we can help. 

Your Pond Assessment

Our pond assessments are very thorough, and include the following:

Pond Measurements

By taking accurate measurements of your pond, length, width and depth, we are able to get a profile of the pond, as well as determine the volume of your pond. This is very important if pond treatments need to be added in the future.

Water Quality Testing

Once we collect water samples, we test the following important parameters: pH, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate, alkalinity & hardness. We also measure the dissolved oxygen at various depths in the pond to get a complete picture of  the water quality and overall health of your pond. 

Plant Identification

By identifying any submerged, floating or emergent pond plants/weeds, we are able to develop a suitable strategy to deal with them.

Pond Weed Identification

Weed Identification

We take the time to identify all the aquatic plants and weeds in your pond. Knowing the species of plants or algae, and the conditions they thrive in, helps to determine the correct course of action to reduce their growth and prevent future outbreaks.  

Dissolved Oxygen Testing in Large Pond Surface

Dissolved Oxygen Measurement

The amount of dissolved oxygen plays an import role in the health of your pond. Because oxygen levels vary greatly between the surface and the bottom of ponds without proper circulation, we take measurements at various depths in your pond to get the overall oxygen profile. 

Large Pond Assessments Equipment

Assessment Equipment

We don’t just work from the shore of your pond. To perform a complete assessment, we use an small boat to take the measurements we need. We take pride in using our years of experience, combined with the best equipment to provide the best assessment of your pond. 

Large Pond Aeration System Design

Aeration System Design

One of the most effective, and long-term solutions to promote a healthy pond is to add a subsurface aeration system. Surface area, depth, and shape of a pond are all important factors we take into consideration when designing an effective aeration system for your pond.

Our comprehensive written reports include two components:

1: Results

Our reports are very detailed oriented, and include the results of the water testing, pond measurements, plant identification, and any other pertinent information that we discover about your pond.   

2: Recommendations

Most importantly, our report includes solutions to remedy the problems or issues in your pond. We offer a variety of options that include both short-term, and long-term solutions.
