Control Excess Nutrients
Manual/ Mechanical Control:
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.
