Pond Cleaning in East Haddam

Austin Foose | ponds |



Tucker and the homeowner talk pond in this panorama of an 8,000 gallon swimming pond in East Haddam, Connecticut.

We did a full cleaning on this swimming pond in East Haddam, CT back in June 2017. We used a 2000 gallon storage tank to accommodate and house 30+ koi and 100 goldfish during the cleaning. The homeowner recently purchased the property and wanted to see the bottom of their pond for the first time. While the new owners don't plan on doing much swimming in this pond, we hope to fully rock in and update this pond in spring of 2018.

This pond has two Aquascape Signature 1000 Skimmers, two Aquascape Signature 2500 Biofalls, a Aqua Ultraviolet Inline UV, and an Aquascape Iongen System. It utilizes two Tsurumi 5PL pumps in each skimmer pushing almost 10,000 gallons of water total, 5,000 in each skimmer. The back edge of this pond is planted with Lizard's Tail, Iris, Chameleon Plant, and Creeping Jenny. There are 30+ koi fish and over 100 Sarasa Comets (most born in this pond).

We would like to reiterate that owning a pond of this size takes a considerable amount of time, money, and care. This koi pond is not for a first time pond owner. While our ponds do not require much maintenance, we recommend starting small if your a beginner. We find that most pond owners have three ponds in their lifetime; a starter 250 gallon preformed pond, a 16' by 11' rock and gravel pond, and a 26' by 21' retirement pond.

If you're interested in building a pond or have a pond in need of an upgrade, we offer year round construction, maintenance and advice to help you tackle the challenge of owning an ornamental koi pond of any size.
