Lake Management

Lake Management For years, the accepted method of lake and large pond management was to wait for a problem, like an algae bloom or excessive aquatic weed growth, and then “react to it” with a chemical application. Although this is effective at providing a quick fix, it does not address the actual problem. In many cases, this reactive approach is catching up with pond owners. Those that have been practicing this form of management are finding it more and more difficult every year to control unwanted weeds and algae. Chemicals are a great tool, but not the complete toolbox.

It is important to understand what has been happening in these lakes and large ponds over the years. Each time a chemical application was applied, weeds and algae were killed off and left to rot on the pond's bottom. This is equivalent to adding fertilizer to your pond. When weeds and algae die, they immediately start to biodegrade. During this process, the dead organic matter is converted into rich organic muck. Although this would be great for a garden, it has a very negative effect on a pond. The nutrients found in this muck greatly contribute to future weed and algae problems.

What can be done to prevent these nutrient buildups from occurring in your pond? The answer is actually quite simple: Be PROactive in your approach to pond management! A PROactive management plan consists of one or all of the following tools.

Sub-surface Aeration: By aerating your pond from the bottom up, using Airmax®’s aeration systems, you will circulate incredible amounts of water, significantly increasing the dissolved oxygen levels in your entire water column, which in turn will allow for significant levels of beneficial bacteria to accumulate in your pond.

Bacteria Augmentation: While there are naturally occurring levels of bacteria aggressively colonizing in your pond after water temperatures reach 50 degrees, the levels are likely no where near what is needed to maintain the clear water column you expect to have. Years of killing algae and aquatic weeds, as well as maintaining high fish loads, has created extremely high levels of nutrients in your pond. By adding Pond Logic® PondClear™ and MuckAway™ natural bacteria, you will be drastically increasing your bacteria count. The billions of PondClear™ specialized microbes will compete for the nutrients in your water column while the MuckAway™ sinking pellets send billions of microbes to the bottom of your pond, working quickly to eliminate up to 5” of muck each season, as well as prevent future build up.

By taking a PROactive approach to pond management, you will be aggressively addressing the root of the problem — excessive nutrients. Give the PROactive approach a try... you have nothing to lose — other than nutrients and muck. We GUARANTEE you will be more than happy with the results!
