The health of your pond depends on the quality of the products you use to treat it. So, whether you’re trying your best to push back algae, combating weeds that never seem to retreat, or minimizing detrimental bacteria and harmful sludge buildup, Aquapond has a perfect product for you. Algaecides, herbicides, pond dyes, pH-balancing chemicals, neutralizing chlorine, and manual weed removers all have a place in your arsenal, and we’re here to teach you how to use them to take care of your pond best.
The first step to any pond maintenance program is a high-quality pond dye. Without pond dye, chances are you will be fighting a losing battle against weeds and algae all season long. If you choose not to use pond dye, you will likely need more chemical water treatments like algaecide and herbicide. While these have their benefits, they should be used with a good pond dye to maximize the health of your pond. Our pond dyes are 100% safe for humans, fish, pets, birds, livestock, and irrigation. One gallon treats roughly one surface acre 4-6 feet deep.
If you want to keep your pond floor clean, pond bacteria is your best friend. Just because the pond floor is hidden from your sight doesn’t mean it’s not important. Problems begin when algae, dead leaves, and fish waste build-up, forming foul-smelling, unhealthy muck and sludge. Plus, this sludge becomes food for unwanted pond weeds and algae. At Aquapond, several beneficial pond bacteria work for different applications. Liquid pond bacteria are a formidable maintenance bacteria used regularly to prevent sludge buildup. Dry forms of concentrated bacteria are frequently used near structures like docks to hasten muck removal.
Algae Control and Prevention
Algae are rootless bodies that float openly across the surface of a pond. Excess nutrients (like sludge or fallen leaves) and sunlight cause its growth. There are three common forms of algae. Planktonic algae are generally green, blue-green, or brown and are suspended above the water. Filamentous algae come in the form of long threads that float to the water’s surface. Chara is a form of algae that do not grow on the surface and has a pungent odor and gritty texture.
Liquid copper sulfate is a great solution for algae prevention and removal. It is a safe, tried-and-true treatment method for keeping your algae under control and healthy. One gallon treats one surface acre 1-3 ft. deep.
One of the best ways to remove weeds is manual. A weed cutter compliments chemical treatments to get the job done right. This natural method for weed removal uses blades to rake weeds from the bottom of the pond. It’s lightweight, easy to use, and effective.
