Service Pond Filter
Maintenance & Service Koi Pond Filter
Each month, we service 20 to 30 pond filters and make many more trips to customers' place to treat sick koi, medicate pond water and many other pond-related jobs.
Our staff in action
We recommend servicing your koi pond filter once every 6 to 9 months depending on number of koi, feeding regime adopted by customers and filter size and design.
Our charges are between RM250 to RM550 depending on the size of filter. The charges are inclusive of anti chlorine and salt but exclude consumables like replacing UV light, coral or filter mat. Prior arrangement is required as we would want customers to fast their koi for 3 days before we carry out the servicing work. Unless an emergency situation, we would normally prefer to carry the servicing work arriving at customer's place in the morning arriving between 8.30 to 9.00 am.
All filter media are removed
Servicing pond filter involves removing all filter media from the filter chambers, clean them with pond water and most importantly flush out accumulated wastes from the concealed pipes. It normally takes about 2 to 3 hours to have the works completed. When we have completed the work, someone needs to be present to load in anti-chlorine pallets as the water is being filled and to turn on the water pumps when the pond water is filled.
Pond and water features are usually given minor touch ups. However if the whole pond requires execessive cleaning due to overgrown algae then it would be separate charges. It will take almost an entire day for 2 persons to complete such a job (pond and filter) while your koi have to be rounded up and packed using plastic bags and then kept alive with oxygen pumped into the bag.
