Control Excess Nutrients
Changing the pond water would be an effective but not realistic method of getting rid of excess nutrients.
Depending on the exact situation, one of these products or a combination of them can control the excess nutrients:
- SparKlear – nutrient reducer, liquid that is diluted and sprayed or pellets that are broadcast into the area. The beneficial bacteria dissolve the excess nutrients.
- PhosControl – fine granules to be broadcast into the area. PhosControl bonds with the free phosphorus and some other organic materials.
- MuckMaid – pellets that are broadcast into the area. They will eat inches of muck at the bottom.
