If signed up for monthly maintenance, we perform secchi disk readings to the pond to analyze water visibility and check monthly water improvement. To learn more about aeration check out our Blog post Aeration 101, where we talk about electricity costs and other common questions to Aeration Systems.
Adding Aquatic Plants also help tremendously. Plants filter the water, absorbing nutrients, which in excess create algae blooms. Plants also enhance wild life and make balanced ecosystems! Bog plants, marginals, and floating plants (Waterlilies) are perfect additions to every pond.
Lastly, Bacteria is an ALL NATURAL biological product that creates clear water, improves filtration, eliminates foul odors and is safe for aquatic life and plants!
It is extremely important to treat your pond EVERY month during the summer to prevent and control algae blooms. Algae blooms are more aggressive in warmer summer months, so taking extra care of ponds and water gardens is critical during the summer.
