Task 3 : Using a pond vacuum, remove any residual water, dirt and weeds.
Task 4 : Hose down the empty pond
Task 5 : Vacuum out water
Task 6 : Check and clean pumps and filters
Task 7 : Fill the pond
Task 8 : Added products, accordingly, and carry out PH test
Task 9 : Carefully place fish, and lily pads, back into the pond
Task 10 : Add some of the water, from the holding tank, back into the pond
