The biggest difference between a small pond and a large pond other than their sizes is the type of pond servicing they need. For a small to medium-sized pond, normal caring is enough. A few water adjustments here there and that’s it. Even so for a larger pond, extra focus is absolutely needed in order to keep the water system alive.
- They need to have garden pond services. Usually , a normal-size pond requires a functioning biological pond filter in order to hold control of the dirt build up in the water system. However, a usual biological pond filter will not work in a large pond due to the quantity of water in the pond.
- In order to have well-maintained large pond, the major thing that needs to be done is to control the nutrient build up and intake in the pond. If there are many pond plants around the water system then the more nutrients are taken by these living things. Which means , there are less nutrients for the fish in the pond.
- More important, a number of pond aerators will be of great help in the appropriate circulation of oxygen in the entire pond. Without aerators, the pond will be useless since oxygen is the main source of life in it. The position right amount of oxygen in the pond will enable nature to take its course as it gives to the maintenance of the large pond. If a small to medium pond can make a submersible pond pump and aerator work, do not think that it will be the same in a larger pond since the water volume involved is much higher thus demands extra power.
