and fountain cleaning is more than one of our specialties —
Rock and Waterfall’s business.
filtration equipment makes it possible to clean your pond or fountain without
draining the water and endangering fish stocks. The bottom of your
pond is vacuumed to suck up accumulated dirt and debris which is
filtered through our portable filter. Clean, clear water
is returned to your pond or fountain. This is good news for pond and
fountain owners in this time of drought! Here are some of the
advantages of Rock & Waterfall’s new portable cleaning filter:
- This cleaning
system saves water and money, eliminating the need to empty and
refill your pond — a costly practice that wastes limited water
resources and raises your water bill.
- It also
eliminates the need to remove your fish and put them into
temporary holding tanks, a practice that always puts fish at
- In the San
Francisco Bay area it is now illegal to discharge the
debris-filled water into a storm drain on the street that
ultimately drains into the bay. Rock and Waterfall’s new water
filtration system eliminates that harmful practice.
avoid the nitrite-nitrate cycle that is toxic to fish.
some temporary turbidity or clouding of the water is to be expected as fine
particulates are stirred into suspension during the cleaning
process. However, this cleaning system keeps turbidity to a minimum. It takes about a day for those particulates to fall back
out of suspension, leaving the water clean and clear.
Keep in mind that
with new accounts, it may be necessary to drain and clean the
water feature, particularly if it has been neglected. Once that's
been done, it is possible to use our portable cleaning system as we
maintain your pond or fountain.
The Rock and Waterfall Company has a passion for clean, clear water!
We work hard to make that a reality for your water feature.
