Does your Koi Pond or Water Feature need repair or help?
PSA- If your pond pump as stopped working we consider this an emergency, oxygen levels drop rapidly and can harm or kill your fish.
Perhaps you bought a home OKC with an existing water feature that was not properly installed, or is just an eye sore. Or perhaps your landscaper thought they would try their hand at pond building and you ended up with a maintenance nightmare. Either way, before you decide to fill it in – give Oklahoma Ponds a call for a pond evaluation, renovation or pond repair. We can take even the most dilapidated water feature and restore or renovate it into something spectacular.
We will work with you, within your budget, to figure out what is best for you and make it happen.

YOUR PUMP IS BROKEN
So your pond or waterfall pump is not running. As you may know, your pond pump is crucial to the health of your garden pond and fish. The pump is not only responsible for a beautiful waterfall but perhaps more importantly it delivers fresh oxygen for your fish. Oklahoma City’s summers are HOT and dissolved oxygen levels will quickly deplete causing unnecessary stress or worst for your fish.
If your garden pond pump has stopped working, check these steps to make sure it’s not an easy fix:
– Make sure that GFCI has not tripped. Most outdoor outlets have two buttons where you plug your pump into. Try pressing the “RESET” button and see if your pump comes back on.
– Debris stuck on the inlet. If your koi pond does not have a skimmer basket there’s a chance debris is stuck around the pump and not allowing it pull water in. If you’re able, unplug your pump and feel around the intake to see if this is the issue
– Try unplugging the pump for a few minuets and plug it back in. Sometimes, air can become trapped inside the impeller and not allow your pump to move water correctly.

WATER IS DISCOLORED
If your water is not crystal clear it may be due to several reasons. If you are experiencing brownish water then it may be from tannins. Click here to read our blog on what tannins are: What’s a Tannin, and Why Should You Care.

WATER IS LEAKING
If you are suddenly losing water and find yourself adding more water than usual to your pond or water feature then you may have a leak.
Don’t worry though, if your pond was built correctly then the issue is likely an easy fix. Here are a couple tips you can try before calling us out:
– most of the pond leaks we find are at the waterfall, if able, try to inspect the edges of your waterfall and see if you can spot a place that the liner as dropped down allowing the water to escape
-make sure the water is not “bubbling” over the edges of your filter. Sometimes your filter pads and become compacted and force water out of the pond.
-inspect the bolts around the skimmer faceplate. The bolts used to hold the liner and faceplate tight can become loose or even decay away. Usually on systems older than 5 years.
If you still can’t find the issues or don’t have the time, call us today and schedule a visit from our technicians.
