Our Vision- To transform, nurture, and preserve all ponds and lakes.

Pond Champs is based out of Fort Wayne, Indiana and has been keeping ponds in Northern Indiana and Northwest Ohio clean and clear since 2006.  We understand pond maintenance can be a major chore and our aquatic specialists are here to help. All of our treatment specialists are licensed in aquatic application and take great pride in making your pond look the best.

Our Services

Pond Champs is a service oriented company that specializes in treating, maintaining, and managing Northern Indiana & Northwest Ohio ponds and lakes.  Pond Champs uses equipment specifically designed to treat your pond or lake appropriately.  Whether it is by a sprayer in a boat or an ATV mounted sprayer, we will always use our equipment responsibly and with consideration for your property.

  1. Pond Service

    Pond Champs offers several different pond treatment plans to accommodate your individual needs as a pond owner.

  2. Lake Service

    Pond Champs also offers lake management services to keep your lake front property in tip-top shape.

  3. Muck Removal

    Muck builds up over time and is the result of dead vegetation and fish waste that has been left to sink to the bottom of the pond.  Let Pond Champs minimize your muck with our pond muck removal service.

  4. Fountains & Aerators

    Aeration and fountains are an important part of a healthy pond.  Ponds can become problematic when the water is not being circulated.  Pond Champs not only sells fountains and aerators, but we will service particular units as well.

Our Mission

To responsibly manage and create enjoyable aquatic environments for everyone we serve.

Our philosophy is to integrate a three phase program in order to achieve maximum results with an environmentally balanced efficiency. We integrate mechanical control and prevention (the use of fountains, aerators and pond dyes), biological control and prevention (grass carp, nutrient reducing bacteria, bio-stimulants), and, finally, chemical control (copper products, algaecides, herbicides).  By utilizing these three pond management methods, we are able to maintain an aesthetically pleasing pond environment.  This approach allows you to enjoy the beauty of nature and, ultimately, increases the value of the property bordering your pond or lake.
