Perfect For That Odd Space In Your Yard Or Next To Your Patio
Pond algae is unsightly to most pond owners. Finding a balanced growth of healthy algae in your Manchester New Hampshire Area pond or water feature is really quite common. Once you have a general understanding of a few basic principles and water treatments, it can be brought under control.
As long as you remember, "There is no such thing as an algae free pond", you will have a better grasp on the subject when dealing with pond cleaning in the spring or fall.
Algae blooms occur when there is an excessive amount of nutrients in your pond or water features. Excessive nutrients definition breaks down into - " a nitrogen rich environment "
Battling "THE GREEN MONSTER"
SO ...What Causes " The Green Monster " ?
Improper Or Not Enough Filtration
Contrary to popular belief, a pump sitting at the bottom of your pond is not an actual working filter. Most pieced together ponds have a mix-match of products in hopes of proper filtration. There are many systems that work really well, but they all take a pre-set amount of routine maintenance.
Way Too Many Fish or Over Feeding
Too Many Fish or Over Feeding Ponds that are overstocked with too many fish certainly promote pond string algae. It is so tempting to buy and buy, forgetting that the koi we buy are babies. As they grow, we have an even more acute lack of space, and process ever growing waste. Imagine a 4 inch baby has grown to 1 foot, 3 times it's size, in few months! The end result is increasing nitrogen levels, which in turn becomes nutrients for algae blooms.
Non Regimented Water Treatments
The improper usage, or complete lack of natural water treatments, promotes pond algae. A pond is only as healthy as the water in it. We provide a full selection of pond water treatments necessary to create a balanced, healthy, and happy pond. Treating pond algae with pond chemicals is not a long term solution, it’s a quick fix that puts additional stress on your pond. So take care, and read all directions before just dumping them into your pond.
Excess Rainwater Nitrogen Runoff
We have noticed over the years that we receive many phone calls about algae blooms after long, heavy, rainy periods. The rainwater is full of nitrogen which is ultimately a fertilizer that algae can feed on. Having poor filtration, or low circulation will enhance the algae blooms based on how much rain the pond has collected.
