ALGAE FACTS


When it comes to algae control and water clarity you have two choices in dealing with it: Artificially or Naturally.

Artificial methods include algaecides and chemicals that kill any and all life in the water, similar to filtering a swimming pool. These methods are best used in formal fountains and some indoor water features where plants and fish are not desired.

Natural methods include plants, fish, and good bacteria that work with Mother Nature, not against her. Since the majority of pond owners are interested in both plants and fish we have chosen to elaborate more on the natural ways to ensure a healthy well balanced ecosystem.
