Beneficial Bacteria For Ponds And Water Gardens

Beneficial bacteria for ponds is the safest option for cleaning a pond up and restoring it to a state of health and balance. This isn't exactly a new concept, after all Mother Nature has been using this process for millions of years.

We prefer to always incorporate bacteria into our pond treatment programs as a first line of defense against a variety of water quality problems. This includes the important work of reducing or hindering the build-up of organic material and sedimentation that is so supportive of pond algae blooms. If your pond is really imbalanced you may even have very bad smells and clarity issues as well.

Let's be clear on this, bacteria is not an algaecide and should not be confused as one. Algaecides, as chemicals, are designed to kill algae directly, through contact or absorption. They have their use in algae control planning, but in our opinion, they have historically been overused and sometimes abused and this has created more pond-related problems than they have solved.

Bacteria do not attack algae directly but by cleaning a pond up of the very things that algae needs to thrive, in an indirect way, algae can be reduced, eliminated, or never allowed to form visibly in the first place. At the same time, your pond can become cleaner and healthier along the way too.

Our philosophy, which we consider a way to "algae proof" your pond, is based on the fundamental idea that by creating a healthy pond, we can create a clear and algae-free pond as well.

It's important to note that this type of product will work best when it's supported by robust aeration. Also it should not be considered a quick-fix solution to algae. Its safety is rooted in the gradual process in which it works to lower nutrients that feed algae. Be sure to allow at least 30 days, and up to 60 days to see positive results while evaluating a microbial solution.
