5 Simple Steps to a Healthy Pond
With five simple steps and our PONDRestore® Ultra kit, you will be on your way to a beautiful, clear and healthy pond! We have combined together these five products to provide your pond relief from weeds and algae. This all-in-one complete kit is the answer you need for complete pond weed control and management.
Step 1 – Control floating and submerged weeds
You will be able to control floating pond weeds like duckweed and watermeal and kill submerged weeds like milfoil and hydrilla with a pond herbicide. Fluridone is a liquid herbicide that will stay suspended in the water for longer control. This is great for treating an entire pond and getting rid of existing nuisance plants.
Step 2 – Tackle algae growth
Eliminate algae with Mizzen™, our new liquid, copper based algaecide. Mizzen™ is excellent for keeping your pond’s algae and scum levels under control so you can enjoy your pond at its maximum beauty. Mizzen™ easily controls filamentous algae and effectively manages planktonic algae.
Steps 3 and 4 – Reduce the nutrients
Overtime, debris will begin to accumulate in your pond adding excess nutrients. These excess nutrients will help unwanted weeds and algae to grow. By reducing the nutrients you are deterring future weed growth.
SparKlear® is the biological control for ponds. Add SparKlear ® pellets that contain bacteria, enzymes and trace minerals to reduce the nutrients that enable weeds and algae to grow.
Use PhosControl® to reduce the amount of phosphorus and clarify your water. Phosphorus is the main source of food for algae, and algae cannot survive without phosphorus. Our PhosControl® will bond with phosphorus, making it unavailable to aquatic plants and algae. Each pound of phosphorus will produce 500 pounds of aquatic plant and algae growth, the use of phosphorus is very important.
Step 5 – Add a pond dye
Leave your water a natural, pleasing blue color when you add Sapphire Bay® blue pond dye to your pond. Our concentrated blue pond dye will block out specific light rays to deter weed and algae growth. We recommend using a pond dye along with a herbicide or an algaecide for best results.
Once you have restored your pond’s health, keep it looking beautiful all season long! Algae actively grows from spring into fall. As summer temperatures climb, algae can return quite quickly. We have extended care kits to fend off the recurring algae, manage the nutrients and maintain the health of your pond. To keep your pond looking great, give us a call, toll free at 1-877-428-8898.
