  • Koi Pond Cleaning

    We know you cherish your koi as they are sort of like underwater puppies. To ensure their safety we will test your water parameters (faucet and pond) before proceeding to make sure your koi do not experience extreme changes to their environment.

    The most common type of koi we encounter in MD, DC, and Northern Virginia are butterfly koi. These koi can be found all throughout pond and aquarium stores alike and have become popular due to their ease of breeding and hardiness. With that in mind, it is still important to minimize their stress levels while servicing your pond.

    Your fish will be safely relocated inside aerated, shaded, totes and closely monitored during the job.


    1. How much does it cost?

      • Koi pond cleaning starts at $750

    2. Where will the fish be while the pond is being cleaned?

      • Your fish will be safely relocated to a separate holding tank filled with mixed water (pond and faucet). The tank will have aerators, shade, and a lid to prevent jumping.

    3. What water parameters do you test for?

      • Over the years we have realized that pH is the most important element to monitor when it comes to cleaning a koi pond. Most homes on well water have slightly acidic water that needs to be diluted for the fish to be safe.

    4. How can I keep my koi pond clean throughout the year?

      • Feed your fish once a day an amount that they can consume in 3-5 minutes and remove all uneaten food. If your pond is overstocked ( almost all are ) you need extra filtration. A strong canister filter is a relatively easy install and will keep your water clear.
