What Our Customers Say


Benefits of Pond Maintenance

Taking care of your pond is more than just a chore. It’s a way to ensure that your outdoor space stays beautiful and healthy. Regular pond maintenance offers a range of benefits that go beyond just clear water, including:

  • When water quality is good, fish are less likely to get sick, saving you money on fish care products and the stress of losing them.

  • Regular cleaning helps keep your pond water water clear, which is better for fish, plants and any wildlife your pond attracts. And it looks better!

  • Algae can quickly take over a pond if it’s not well-maintained. Regular maintenance helps control algae growth, keeping it from becoming a problem.

  • Filters, pumps, and other pond equipment last longer when they’re kept clean, saving you money in the long run.

  • A clean pond is better for the environment and it’s less likely to attract pests.

With our professional pond maintenance services, you can be sure that your pond is clean and well-maintained, making your pond a place of relaxation rather than a source of stress.

“The pond had not been serviced for some time and was very dirty with a blocked filter, Elliot and his team did a great job, and left my pond looking clear and running properly again, enabling me to see all my fish. I have now booked a regular maintenance service with Essex Aquatics and would highly recommend them” 
– Sandra Owen
