We at Waterpaw recommend that certain steps be taken in the fall to protect your pond investment. We offer a Pond Shutdown & Winter Storage program. For $75 we will take the steps necessary and store your pump properly over the winter. However, if you would like to do it yourself pull the plug on the biofalls and arrange your bioballs so that animals won't become trapped. Remove your pump and net from the pump vault and store together wet in a contractor bag. Put the bag into a space in your home or garage where the pump will not be exposed to high heat or extreme cold. For any questions call Waterpaw today!
