Koi fish ponds are a unique aquatic environment, distinct from swimming pools and other water bodies, and their upkeep demands a thoughtful design encompassing elements like skimmers, and bottom and side drains. Typically, Koi ponds are constructed using a reinforced concrete shell.

Regular cleaning of your Koi pond or water features, at least annually, ensures they function optimally while maintaining their aesthetic appeal. In Koi fish ponds, biofilters should be cleaned every six months, water quality should be tested monthly, and the drainage and plumbing system should be inspected, cleaned, and repaired as needed.
Our skilled technicians arrive fully equipped with the necessary tools and test kits to ensure your pond or water feature is in prime condition. Ponds and water bodies without proper filtration require more frequent cleaning and maintenance.
Cleaning and maintaining a water feature not only offers ecological benefits but also enhances its visual appeal. The KJA & Sons team consists of professionals who can clean, assess, and educate you about your system.
Having a qualified pond professional assess your setup and provide guidance can prevent future issues and downtime. Pond maintenance is closely linked to the type of filtration systems in use.
Recognizing that every pond is unique, our extensive knowledge allows us to make informed decisions, ensuring effective problem-solving at each new pond site.
If you’re purchasing a new home with a water feature or have recently acquired one, let us know. We can provide invaluable assistance. The KJA & Sons Pond team has a systematic approach to help homeowners understand their newly acquired ponds.
In any maintenance project, the initial step involves inspecting the water feature, pump rooms, and, if present, biofilters. Aquatic life is carefully captured using suitable net gear and placed in a spare or quarantine tank for examination. Fish are inspected for diseases or injuries before being reintroduced to the cleaned pond or water body.
Once aquatic life is removed, the pond or water body is drained. We recommend that a representative from the property owner’s side be present to assess the condition of the pond and its equipment.
After the pond is completely drained, the inner walls, skimmers, plumbing, bottom, and drains are thoroughly cleaned and inspected for cracks or leaks. Fittings inside the pond are checked, cleaned, and replaced if necessary. Electrical wiring and lights inside the pond are inspected and replaced as needed.
In the pump room, main pumps and filters are inspected and cleaned or replaced as necessary. Controller functionality, control panels, and auto breakers are tested and checked, with results documented.
Biofilter chambers are emptied, sludge is removed, and bio media is thoroughly cleaned. Additional media is added if required.
Once the cleaning is completed, the pond is left to air dry, after which pond epoxy coatings can be reapplied, or freshwater can be refilled. A pond starter is introduced to eliminate contaminants and kickstart the biofilters.
Once the water quality is deemed satisfactory, the fish can be safely returned to the pond.
Maintaining a clean pond with efficient recirculation, aeration, and filtration systems ensures both the fish and the pond’s owners are happy.
