The best time to perform a clean out is the early spring, before your pond awakens completely from its winter dormancy. Do this when water temperature is between 45 and 60 degrees. The reason this is necessary is that the beneficial bacteria that grows in your filters and rocks has not yet established itself. NOTE: If you perform this clean out late, after water temperature is over 60 degrees you might throw your ecosystem out of whack and will possibly go through a green phase before your bacteria colonies can re-establish themselves. If this happens, it takes approximately 2 to 4 weeks to clear up the water in your pond.
