How to Remove Algae
Pond algae thrives on water that is stagnated. Ponds that have plenty of nutrients and organic matter but not enough oxygen to decompose all this debris is where pond algae appears most often.
Pond algae is a sign the pond water gives to its owner – The sign is to please help restore itself back to a healthy clean pond.
Most pond owners do not listen to their ponds. Instead, they continually treat the pond algae with various chemicals such as copper sulfate and other potentially dangerous pond treatments.
Control Pond Algae
Treating pond algae with pond chemicals is not a long term solution to this pond problem. It’s a quick fix that puts additional stress and loads on your pond. Once you kill off the algae with the use of pond chemicals it sinks to the bottom of the pond and it too, requires oxygen in order to decompose itself. Thus further depleting an already, starved for oxygen, body of water.
Algae Control in Ponds with Windmill Aeration
The key to restoring you pond back to a healthy state is simple – replenish it with oxygen. By Aerating your pond you will provide the water with the additional levels of oxygen it needs to help burn off the excess nutrients that reside in it. This organic matter acts as feed for pond algae. Its simple, once you have eliminated the pond algae’s source of nutrition – you kill it off and you stop it from returning.
