Algae Control

In a nutshell:  Pond algae needs two things to grow:  sunlight and nutrients. 

Get rid of the nutrients from excessive pond wastes by using our PlanktoniX or Microbe Lift to remove the wastes and our Aquashade or Black Vail as an aquatic sunblocker to block sunlight from filtering through the pond water to your submersed pond weeds and algae.  Be sure to read the information below for the correct size of pond you have. 

If you want more in-depth explanation, please read the information below about your size of pond.
