Water Feature Maintenance


Winter is coming whether we like it or not. Have to say that for those that have the beautiful outdoor living spaces they are leaning more towards dreading the winter months as you can't be outside as much enjoying your outdoor kitchens, patios, and water features.
Unlike the hardcaping, such as your patio, outdoor kitchens, fireplaces or fire pits, water features needs a little attention when the cool weather rolls around. Water falls and ponds need to go through a winterization procedure that includes removing pumps, draining lines, installing a heater and aerator, along with netting. It's a process that needs to be done every fall. Keep those water features maintained to continue to reap the benefits of the beauty they offer when warm weather comes back into play.
Pittsburgh Stone and Waterscapes LLC offer both winterization and pond/waterfall openings. We store the pumps, nets and heaters so no need to find storage space for those items. We make your pond and waterfall maintenance stress free. Taking that little bit of time for some tlc is well worth the results when it comes time to reopen and enjoy the soothing sounds of a waterfall or the glistening of a pond.
