As you know California Waterscapes are exposed to a wide range of weather conditions. A Waterscape in California
can experience grueling 128 degree temperatures in the summers months throughout the regions of California's Coachella Valley (Indio, Palm Desert, Palm Springs),
while our local mountains, (Big Bear, Lake Arrowhead, Forest Falls) you can expect night time lows well below freezing, in the winter months.
Our California Waterscapes are also exposed to the wonderful weather conditions of our coastal California communities
as well, (San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles) where a backyard waterfall or waterscape never experiences a true winter. Can you just imagine water
temperatures that rarely leave the range of 65 to 85 degrees?
There are many different spring pond care and fall pond care routines that need to be modified from the recommended
pond care techniques provided by some pond equipment manufacturers and distributors. A perfect example is the fact that the World's largest pond supply company
suggests only cleaning your pond once a year, in the spring time.
The once a year pond cleaning is not going to fly for most of California. Let me explain in detail why.
You see, the World's largest pond supply company is based out of Illinois, where the pond season only lasts approximately 6 months. So while an annual spring
clean out may very well do the trick for States with extreme winters and a short pond season, this once a year clean out mentality, makes for a messy pond
here in most parts of Southern California.
