Spring is here and the hot summer months are just around the corner. A frequent question we get this time of year is, “How do I keep my pond water clear?”

There can be many answers to that question. The first thing we suggest is to use Beneficial bacteria. Beneficial bacteria occur naturally in our water gardens and ponds, but you still need additional treatments each week to sustain pristine water quality.

Beneficial bacteria work like mini vacuum cleaners, digesting decayed leaves, grass clippings, and dead algae. You cannot see these little organisms with the naked eye. These microscopic good bugs break down organic waste and reduce ammonia levels from fish waste.

Backyard ponds benefit greatly from consistent bacterial treatments. Consistency is the key to maintaining a healthy pond with beneficial bacteria.

We are excited to announce that we are now installing Aquascape Automatic Dosing System These systems are designed to help water feature owners maintain optimal water quality by accurately and consistently applying the choice of water treatment. The systems are perfect for fountains too.

There are four water treatments available for use with the automatic dosing system to Maintain, Clean, Clear, and Protect.

The best part of the Aquascape Automatic Dosing System is that you do not have to remember every week to do the bacterial treatments. Everyone is busy and can easily forget.

Regular bacterial treatments are an important key to keeping your pond water clear. Make sure you are using the correct amount and frequency for your sized pond.
