Fall is all about the protection and preservation of your pond. In our heavily wooded, Northeastern climate falling leaves cause organic buildup that is harmful to your water quality going into winter. Netting your pond in early fall to keep out leaves and other debris protects your pond and fish.
- Falling leaves plug your skimmer preventing the water from entering. A dry skimmer will quickly burn out your pump which can easily cost $700 or more to replace.
- Fall is migrating season. As the great blue heron migrates south they are searching for food sources. Pond tenting will protect your fish from this predator as they travel.
- Pond tenting eliminates daily maintenance. As leaves fall you can easily use a leaf blower to blow leaves off tenting.
- Pond tenting supports your winter shut down process. Providing a healthy ecosystem free of leaves and debris to support the fish over the winter.
