Pond algae is a problem for everyone. Keeping your pond free of string algae is fairly easy with a little maintenance. String algae can be controlled with the use of Interpet Pond Balance or Crystal Clear D-Solv. These products are easy to use and work great for removing string algae. Keeping your water quality up is very important and can also help to reduce the string algae problem. Testing your water quality is very important and should be done on a regular basis. Make sure you start each spring with a fresh test kit.
The water you put in your pond or water garden may contain chlorine and chloramines, heavy metals and other unwanted componants. A conditioner to neutralize chlorine, ammonia and heavy metals should be used on a regular basis as well. Products like Sludge Away and Microbe-lift PL, that help desolve sludge and debris that may feed an algae bloom are available and work well.
