Spring is an absolutely beautiful time of year. The trees are leafing out and producing some stunning flower displays. While this is quite the site, during this time trees create copious amounts of pollen and of course drop all these beautiful flowers to the ground.
When this happens the pollen collects in our pond water and if the trees are near your pond, where are all those flower petals going to go? You guessed it, right into your pond! Will all of this pollen and debris really affect your pond or water feature?
BioFalls are very simple yet effective fish pond filtration systems that don't require much care. However, spring is the perfect time to check on those filter pads to see if they may need replacing. The filter pads are cleaned a few times a year but are quite frequently forgotten about. What really determines if you can reuse these pads or if you should just replace them?
It's important to first determine what kind of filtration system your fish pond is currently using.
The type of filtration system your fish pond currently has will determine the steps that need to be taken to prepare your fish and koi pond for the winter months.
