Experts and experienced pond owners know what to do when problems on their pond arises. As summer approaches, heat will also continue to rise as well and problems keeping your blue water might be more difficult than you think. Summer is mostly when people go out and enjoy the sun. Recreational activities such as golf courses, ponds, lakes or lagoons are the most visited place during this time and dirt, debris or trash is more likely to land in these places creating a problem in your pond or lake.
There are 3 general steps to successful treatment and maintenance of your pond.
Step 1. Aeration, which basically means mixing air and water so reaction will take place. Air compresses through compressors and is transported to an Air Pod (air diffusers) which are installed at the bottom of the lake or pond that creates bubbles. This is called oxygenation. As we all know, water is made of two Hydrogen atoms and one Oxygen atom (H2O) and the amount of oxygen you put in your pond will affect both chemical and physical outlook. The chemical’s job is to dissolve minerals whatever is in the water then set free providing better oxygen to the pond ecosystem. Having higher levels of oxygen inside the pond, organic matter such as sludge and other sediment at the bottom of the pond will decompose much quicker. And of course, this is what the physical aspects of water aeration do.
Step 2. The pond conditioner which comes from natural ingredients and is also environmentally friendly . When combined with pond aeration, it can add strength to drive away unwanted foliage and algae. So basically, this is to improve your pond eco system. Although a conditioner will help you get rid of algae, you might want to consider adding fish in your pond such as koi to reduce your maintenance. This is ideal if you just want to sit back and enjoy your pond. Know how much space you need to add the proper number of fish. The required space for goldfish is one length per square foot and if koi is what you want, the required space is 25 square foot per fish.
Step 3. The pond dye purpose is to reduce the sun’s rays and create shade surfaces in your pond so your plants and fish will stay protected. By using dye in your pond, the growth of weeds and algae will slow down. You want to avoid sunlight rays because it’s not healthy for your pond or any aquatic wildlife. Pond dye will not stain and is safe for pets, plants, people and wildlife if swallowed. It is recommended that you apply the product early in the season for best results. It is said that if you keep your pond blue always the less algae you have to worry about.
