Pond Tip Tuesday | Summertime Pond Tip | Pond Pumps | Pond Aeration | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

It’s Summertime and the livin’ is easy 😊 Your Koi are happy and your Pond is a magical thing! ❤️ Ahhh, the soothing sights & sounds… BUT, what if it quits running? What if your Pond Pump Stops… Believe me when I tell you – it’s NEVER at an opportune moment! No indeed! You’re either out of town, or it’s scorching HOT and your fish are gasping for air… Your Pond Pump Never goes out at an opportune moment!

Your Waterfall serves many purposes. Yes, It’s the central focal point of the Feature, but it also aerates the pond and circulates the water, VERY important for your aquatic life. If your Pond Pump is out, ALL of this stops… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Your Pump is the heart of your Pond! When it stops running, it’s important to have a backup plan! Many people keep a small pump that can be placed in shallow water to “flash the surface”, this will help to keep oxygen in the water while you get a replacement Pond Pump to power your Waterfall.

Pond Pumps come in different shapes and sizes! It’s a great idea to have a backup pump in case of an outage! It could save your sanity and you’re Koi’s life. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Many of my clients also have an aeration system in their Pond. This helps to oxygenate the water and it’s unlikely that the pump and the aeration system will fail at the same time. I recommend powering them on separate circuits in case of GFCI interruptions.

Having an Aeration System on your Pond is a great way to maintain oxygen levels for your finned friends. Plug your system into a different outlet & circuit than your pump for even more assurance. We have systems for Ponds large and small at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio.

Whether you take care of your own Pond Maintenance or one of our Maintenance Technicians takes care of your Pond, it’s important to have a plan and to be ready “Just in case”… I have a complete maintenance service available to help you and your Pond and we stock pumps and aeration systems at our Nursery and Garden Center. Simply call 731-424-2206 for assistance. We stock most pumps and aeration systems and will get you fixed right up!

I hope this little bit of info on pumps and ponds was helpful! Like the old man says, “Knowing is half the battle”! 

Happy Pondering!
