The LAKEMAID® was tested by the San Francisco Estuary Institute on the San Joaquin River Delta.  Their report states, "plant biomass went down to almost zero at the end of the 10 day study period."  They went on to state, "The LAKEMAID® can be cost-effective for treating very small areas of plant infestations."  Click here to read the full article.

The LAKEMAID® is the ultimate automatic pond weed removal machine. It consists of a long floating arm propelled by a submerged pump that drags weed-removing rakes across the lake bottom. This repetitive sweeping action eliminates lake weeds quickly and safely. Not only is the LAKEMAID® tool an amazing machine for lake weed removal, it's also perfect for preventing the build-up of silt.

Past Reviews/Comments:

  • Rating imageRating imageRating imageRating imageRating image - It is such a pleasure to swim enjoying the nice sandy bottom of the lake vs. prior to having the Lakemaid we had to swim in the weeds! The equipment is not difficult to install and once that is completed, we can forget it and just watch the efficiency of the Lakemaid. I especially like the free standing unit and not having it attached to the dock. The equipment is not heavy for installation and also stores nice for the winter. (6/6/2014 12:00:00 AM)
  • Rating imageRating imageRating imageRating imageRating image - I am excited to write a review about Lake Restoration. In the past I have purchased the Lake Maid which I enjoyed thoroughly, also I have bought many supplies for my pond and my lake shore. They always seem to be very educated on their products and more than willing to help you with any questions you might have. - Mark from St. Cloud, MN (6/3/2014 12:00:00 AM)
  • Rating imageRating imageRating imageRating imageRating image - We were really excited to try this product. So... the unit twisted up no matter what you did, making the cord cover way too short. It got blown in no matter how heavy you made the anchor. When it hit weeds, even with the chains shortened, it stopped turning (& if it's on a slope, the chains are either too long or too short). The finishing chains gouge deep channels, in our case merely moving the silt over a bit. The connections corroded after a couple of weeks, making it very difficult to get apart or together. We got the larger one- it was quite expensive & has been just sitting in our back yard for the last 2 years- we so wish we had not gone this route!! (5/30/2014 12:00:00 AM)
