Water Feature Maintenance & Repairs
In lakes and ponds of all sizes, water fountains and other features promote improved aeration, healthier fisheries and better overall water quality. They also add an important aesthetic element that encourages people to get out and enjoy everything your lake or pond has to offer. Like all mechanical systems, lake fountains require periodic maintenance to ensure they continue working their best. While some routine maintenance is not as difficult, for more in-depth water feature repairs and lake fountain maintenance, professional assistance is necessary. Aquatic Environment Consultants (AEC) can help. For more than 30 years, we have been providing clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest regions with expert lake and pond fountain maintenance and repairs. Whether or not we installed your fountain initially, make us your first call for any service issue or other concern.
Why Lake Fountain Maintenance Is Important
A lake fountain is an effective tool when functioning properly, but if it isn’t working properly, it can easily throw off the delicate ecological balance of your lake or pond. Common problems requiring lake fountain repairs can include:
- Pump or motor failure
- Clogging or disruption of the aeration system
- Issues with the fountain electrical control system
- Corrosion or other damage to piping
Any of the above problems can cause your system to underperform or fail outright. This, in turn, can lead to toxic algae blooms, fish kills and other issues that can be expensive or time-consuming to properly remediate. A small investment in regular pond fountain maintenance saves you both money and time in the long run.
