Spring, Summer, Fall Maintenance Visits Include:

  • 10% water change (Water changes helps prevent recurring fish illnesses and help to remove nutrient food sources which Pea Soup Algae and String Algae thrive on. Additionally, it encourages fish growth and aids in getting more vibrant color out of your fish).
  • Testing and reporting of all water parameters: pH, Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate, Phosphate, Alkalinity, Salinity, Oxygen (Adjustment of water parameters based on findings)
  • Add Sludge Eating Beneficial Bacteria (Helps breakdown sludge and debris in pond)
  • Add Sodium Bicarbonate (Raises alkalinity and buffers pH As Needed)
  • Add Dechlor (Removes Chlorine, Detoxifies ammonia, removes heavy metals)
  • Aquatic Plant Trimming (if applicable)
  • Vacuuming when necessary
  • Netting of leaf debris (if leaves are present)
  • Backwashing Biological and Mechanical Filtration
  • You’ll also receive a pond report after every visit

Winter Maintenance Visits Include:

  • Testing and reporting of water parameters: pH, Alkalinity (Adjustment of water parameters based on findings)
  • Aeration check
  • Nitrifying Bacteria (50% Nitrosomonas, 50% Nitrobacter)
  • Aquatic Plant Fertilizer
  • Koizyme (Starves out Aeramonas and Pseudomonas bacteria which cause ulcer disease)
  • Pond Salt
  • Fish Medications (Proform C, Prazi, Proform LA)
  • Due to the size and differences with every pond, a pond consult will be needed to assess the workload needed to perform the necessary tasks and the time it will take on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis
  • In most cases we recommend performing bi-weekly instead of monthly maintenance depending on the type of pond and filtration. The accumulation of debris over 4 weeks is much greater and therefore a much more difficult task. This can outweigh the benefit of only performing maintenance once a month. Additionally, only maintaining the pond once a month can be very hazardous to the aquatic life in the pond.


Are your koi fish receiving good care and a healthy pond environment to live in? If you’ve been on the search for a reliable koi pond cleaning service near you, contact Koi Market for our regular maintenance and cleaning services. 

Koi ponds require intensive spring cleaning and maintenance to help your fish survive and thrive for years to come. Leaving your koi pond unattended for too long can result in murky or cloudy waters, overgrowth of algae and thick, slimy muck stuck at the bottom of the pond.

This can quickly turn your koi pond into an eyesore — but it doesn’t have to be that way. Spring is one of the best times to clean your pond right after all the snow and ice has melted. Cleaning your pond on your own can be tedious and time-consuming. Take advantage of our complete pond care services and give us a call today. 


After a long winter, your koi are ready to swim and play. But is your koi pond clean of debris, sludge and parasites? Not only will you appreciate the beauty of your fresh water pond — your koi will love it too! 

A koi pond is a living, breathing ecosystem, which means it must be routinely maintained and it is not a “set it and forget it” addition to your landscape. Let’s be honest — do you flush the toilet after you go to the bathroom? Of course you do.

Well, a pond is no different, for all intents and purposes, it is a toilet bowl that needs to be flushed and maintained. Our talented staff will provide the proper water treatments, maintain your filtration and do routine water changes to keep your pond and koi healthy.
