Equipment Servicing & Installation
High quality koi pond equipment is a must for any pond. we specialize in industry leading pond pumps & filtration. From submersible pump / UV-light kits, to custom commercial grade bio-filtration setup for easy maintenance.
Bi-weekly Koi Pond Maintenance & Cleanings
Koi ponds need frequent maintenance and repairs to stay in their best condition. That’s why we schedule maintenance appointments bi-weekly. We’ll clear out the pond filters, check the UV lights, and ensure the air pumps are in functioning order. We also offer larger communities like apartment complexes, and HOA’s, custom lake maintenance plans which include additional water features on the property – be it a koi pond, water fountain, stream, or waterfall.
Outdoor ponds are subject to all kinds of wear and tear from the weather. Larger ponds require a lot of work and functioning pieces to keep the ecosystem in balance. Smaller ponds, on the other hand, are often neglected because owners underestimate how much care they require. Both benefit from professional care.
Koi Pond & Water Garden Equipment Installation & Repair
In addition to our maintenance and cleaning services, we also offer a number of pieces of equipment for your koi pond. We supply the highest quality pumps, filtration equipment, and UV lights to ensure your koi are living in a clean, safe, and heavy environment.
A good pump is a necessity for any pond. It circulates water throughout the system to ensure the water is clean and the air in the pool is fresh. The pumps we provide are powerful, quiet, and are programmed to save electricity. Pumps must be custom-fit to an environment, so we’ll help measure your pond and find the right sized option for you.

Koi Pond Cleaning V/s Koi Pond Maintenance
Cleaning a koi pond isn’t an easy job, even for the most attentive koi lovers. Our team knows how to clean water features without harming the fish within or disrupting the careful balance of living bacteria that koi need to thrive.
Our cleaning process varies depending on your pond’s specific needs. We can do a simple clearing of leaves and other debris gathered on the surface of the water, or completely drain the pond and give it a thorough deep cleaning.
The Lake Management Inc. team is sensitive to the needs of your fish and will take every precaution to ensure their safety during the cleaning process. When we remove them from the pond, we’ll move them to an aerated container that’s the right temperature for your koi to stay comfortable. Then we’ll carefully extract any debris or buildup from the interior of the water feature without disturbing the microorganism growth on surfaces, which contributes to a healthy pond ecosystem.

UV-Lights are great for any size pond. These ultra-violet lights help kill any bacteria exposed to the appropriate amount of light. Don’t be fooled by all UV-light systems though, only specific UV Lights will work with certain koi ponds.
Pond cleaning is usually a 1-2x p/ year process which includes completely draining the water feature, holding the fish in a storage container (safe from predators) and removing any excess algae, debris stuck in return lines, and potentially cleaning the filtration media depending on which type of filtration is used.
Pond maintenance is the recurring process of bi-weekly or monthly light maintenance. Which consists of checking UV-lights, backwashing any filters, and lightly removing debris from the surface of the water feature.
Residential bi-weekly koi pond maintenance fees typically start at around $160 p/month p/ water feature on the property. For water features ranging from 500 – 3000 gallons of water.
For larger commercial koi ponds, pricing can start at around $300 – $600 p/month p/ water feature. Although these water features range from a simple 3,000 – 10,000 gallons, other properties which have streams, waterfalls, and fountains running through the property can incur a larger monthly cost for maintenance.
Most koi ponds start at around $500 – $800 for a simple drain and clean. This doesn’t include cleaning filtration media, replacing UV lights, and other items which might need to be replaced during a cleaning.
Larger koi ponds with large fish might require a large storage tank to hold them during the cleaning process, and this can increase the cost to $1,000 – $2,500 per cleaning depending on the size of the water feature.
Most koi ponds in Southern California will not need a koi pond heater, unless you’re in the mountains or the frigid desert areas, your koi should be fine.
If you do live in a very cold climate, a koi pond heater can help keep your koi fish and turtles healthy. Including any koi pond plants like water lilies, etc.
