Cleaning Pond Pumps and Filters

It is important to ensure pond pumps and filters remain clean because they are prone to blockages. We provide pond cleaning services when Horsham, Haywards Heath and Worthing customers encounter such problems. Our team recommends pond cleaning duties should take place during autumn and winter seasons, which is when clogs from fallen debris are common.

At Pond Restoration & Maintenance Ltd, we are experienced in cleaning pond pumps and filters, which should only be administered with rain or pond water. This is because flushing filter units with tap water will remove the bacteria which is needed to maintain an eco-balance in garden ponds. Only chlorine-free water should be used for pond cleaning at your Horsham, Haywards Heath, Worthing or West Sussex property.
