How To Control Pond Algae With Algaecides
A pond algaecide is something you should consider if you have a pond or manage one. If you don't take steps to maintain and control your pond, it can become a breeding ground for algae. While some algae growth is normal and necessary for maintaining a healthy balance in your pond, too much can cause serious problems.
Algicides for ponds work quickly, which is the good news. Within 24 hours of application, pond algae will turn from vibrant green to brown/yellow/white. This is a sign that the pond algicide is working. The dead vegetation will then fall to the bottom with the next rain.
When trying to control the water in your green pond, there are many things that you need to consider. Pond owners need to remember that there are many variables that can affect a pond's water quality. These include temperature, pond size, pond type, pond animals, runoff, aeration, age, and depth. These variables can have an impact on the way your pond algae control is planned.
