Regardless of the climate your pond is in, if you have a pond on your property you’re aware that it is sometimes subject to dissipating water. If you live in an area where hot weather is not uncommon, it may appear that the water in your pond is simply evaporating. However, this may not be the case. It may seem far-fetched but there is the possibility that your pond or other body of water may be experiencing a pond leak. The good news is, there’s a solution! With Soilfloc Pond Sealant, we can fix your leaking pond and alleviate the issue of disappearing water.
Eventually, Every Pond Will Experience a Leak
Unfortunately, if you own a pond, you are not safe from a potential pond leak. The good news is you’re not alone. In order to repair your pond leak with Soilfloc Pond Sealant, the first thing you need to do is identify it. To do this, you want to eliminate all other possibilities.
Before you purchase Soilfloc Pond Sealant, be sure your water isn’t evaporating. If your pond is located in an area where it’s subject to high temperatures, high humidity, and a high amount of sunlight, your pond could lose one to two inches of water each week. Additionally, water evaporates more quickly when there is more surface area so if your pond features splashing falls and stream rocks it is going to lose water pretty fast. It’s important to note that if your pond is subject to varying temperatures, a pond aerator can help with this. Aerators for ponds or even pond fountains can keep the temperature steady and constant by continually circulating the water in the pond.
Floating pond fountains make a beautiful addition to any pond and add wonderful aesthetics. If you’re interested in a pond aerator but your pond does not have access to electricity, solar pond aerators are available and can be a great option for your pond. So, if evaporation is the cause of your low water levels, aerators for ponds are the way to go!
If your pond is surrounded by blooming plants, you may not need Soilfloc Pond Sealant just yet, as thirsty plants could be the culprit. However, if your pond’s water levels are dropping at the same rate regardless of whether it’s sunny or cloudy, your plants may not be causing the drop in water levels.
If your pond is new, you may not need Soilfloc Pond Sealant as low edges may be to blame. Check the areas in your pond’s stream or waterfall to see if the soil or mulch on the edges is wet. If they are, it’s a pretty simple fix that can be done by you.
Now That You’ve Ruled Out All Other Possibilities
After you’ve eliminated every possibility, it’s time to confirm you have a pond leak. First, you’ll want to turn off your pump. But before you do this, be sure you have a pond aerator in your pond if you have fish or other wildlife as a pond aerator will keep the oxygen levels up. Once you’ve tuned your pump off, let your pond sit for 24 hours. If the water drops and continues to do so past the 24 hours, your pond is experiencing a leak.
This is where Soilfloc Pond Sealant comes in. This low-cost product and method allows you to fix the leak in your pond, save your water, all without the need for additional concrete or plastic liners. Additionally, it is harmless to your wildlife. We love this product and highly recommend it to anyone experiencing a pond leak.
