How to Get Rid of Algae in a Fountain or Water Feature

Every year people wonder about how to get rid of annoying, unsightly and unhealthy algae in their fountains and water features. They’ve put time, money, and effort in with the goal of enjoying the beauty of their yard and instead end up frustrated, with green goop floating across their best-laid plans. What was supposed to be a relaxing, lovely addition to their free-time has quickly turned into a source of frustration and work.

Keeping your backyard fountain or water feature at its peak doesn’t have to take up all of the time that could be better spent kicking back. Although some maintenance is required, our WGWF kit will significantly reduce the effort required to get rid of algae so you can relax and enjoy the beauty of your backyard pond, water feature, or fountain.

Starting with a clean surface, add distilled or filtered water to your fountain or water feature if possible. If that’s not possible just start with water right from a hose or tap. After that let Lake Restoration’s water fountain and water feature kit do the work for you. The kit includes Mizzen®, our copper-based algaecide to both get rid of and keep the algae at bay, SparKlear® to reduce the nutrients in your garden pond that enable algae growth, our PhosControl® to reduce the phosphorous and clarify the water in your outdoor water fountain and lastly, Sapphire Bay® Blue Pond Dye to keep the water color sparkling and clear. The kit comes in two sizes based on the square footage of your fountain or water feature.

Now that you know how to get rid of algae in your fountain or water feature you can put your feet up and enjoy the peace and beauty your fountain or water feature was meant to bring you.
