Pond filtration systems

Pond filtration systemsPond owners should not simply count on their pond filtration systems to completely maintain their ponds. It is still important to test the water of ponds for pH, nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, hardness, oxygen content, and phosphate levels.

How often should you test? A brand new pond should be tested frequently. After the pond has become established, once or twice every two weeks is good.

If you find unsafe levels of ammonia and nitrite in your water, it could be because of a problem with the pond filtration system or because of having too many fish. Check your filter - clean out decaying matter and other contaminants from the filter and from the pond. Do a partial water change. Determine if you have too many fish - it important to find the source of the problem rather than simply fixing the symptoms of it.

Besides the number of fish you have, you should also consider the number of plants. With the right mix of fish and plants, the levels of nitrate should remain at a fine level. Plants consume nitrates.
