Do you need a Philadelphia pond cleaning?

Do you need a Philadelphia pond cleaning?  Does your pond have green or murky water? Is the algae taking over?  Is there a buildup of sludge or mulch?  Are your fish being eaten or sick?

Ponds of all sizes need to be cleaned at least once a year.

How much is a Philadelphia pond cleaning?

We get asked that a lot.   The true answer is—it depends (we have average pricing listed at the bottom.) Pond cleanings are a vital part of the maintenance process.    The more time you wait between cleanouts, the more time, effort and money it will cost to clean.

The pond cleaning in Philadelphia cost depends on three main factors:

 

#1—The size of the pond.

#2—The condition of the pond

#3—How long it has been since your last cleanout.

#1:  Pond Size.

The larger the pond, the more expensive it will be to perform a Philadelphia pond cleaning.    Larger ponds also can be retention ponds or mud bottom ponds, which need to be dredged and have a whole different cleaning process. Most ponds run from between 8 x 8 feet to 11 x 16 feet.  Ponds can be much larger as well.  We work on smaller ponds as well, some as small as 2 by 2 feet.

#2: Pond Condition

Aside from size and regular maintenance, the overall condition of your pond will be an important factor in determining how much your Philadelphia pond cleaning will cost.  Certain physical characteristics of your pond can factor in as well, including the type of filtration and whether you have a bog, wetland or negative edge environment.

#3: Time since last cleaning

Pond cleaning prices also vary depending on when you last had maintenance on your pond.   The better a pond is maintained, the less work it will take to do a full clean out.

Anything cleaned longer than a year ago will be charged a higher price to account for the extra time and materials needed to clean the dirty pond.

Philadelphia pond cleanings start at $700 for an 8.5 x 11 pond that was cleaned the previous year and increase from there.  Most cleanings are in the $850 range.

No matter when you choose to do your clean up, the important thing is not to wait too long.

Remember, starting your water garden season with a clean slate will cut down on in season maintenance down the road.

A  common bond…

A woman named Sheryl saw the article and it resonated with her. Her husband had suffered from Alzheimer’s disease, like Laura’s mother and had died a few years back. The pond had been his baby. It stopped working a few years ago and Sherry didn’t know what to do. She tried a few times to find a company that could handle a South Jersey pond renovation, but it still leaked in the same spots. She was tired of looking at it, as it was located right on her front lawn. Then she read the article and thought, this might be a good fit!

A South Jersey Pond Renovation

When AquaReale co-owner Matt Reale went to look a the pond he knew right away that he needed to help make this a happy memory again for Sheryl. Based on a number of factors, Matt and Sheryl decided to basically do a complete pond renovation, instead of trying to fix old, outdated equipment that was not working well.

Matt and his team took out all the mismatched pieces and replaced them with a brand new Aquascape system, including a new liner, skimmer, Biofalls, pump, fieldstone boulders and pipe.

“The best part of the whole job for me was seeing how happy Sheryl was to see her pond up and functioning once again. We used a PA fieldstone boulder with moss on it for the stream and that was one of her favorite parts of the whole pond, ” said Matt .

The pond is now a beautiful 11 x 16 pond with a stream that is the centerpiece of Sheryl’s’ front lawn, a view that now fills her with happiness and memories on a daily basis.
