Netting Fish Ponds In The Fall
Why Net Your Fish Pond In The Fall? Netting Fish Ponds has benefits not only in the Fall, but in the Spring as well. In the Fall, it helps by greatly reducing the amount of leaves that get into your pond. It saves you a lot of time spent scooping them out by hand. Netting also keeps your skimmer basket from being overloaded and straining your pump, as well as keeping the flow rate steady.
In the Spring, since less debris has overwintered in your pond, there are less nutrients available to feed algae as the water warms up in the spring. This makes the whole Spring start up period go more smoothly.
