Meet the All-Natural Pond-Cleaning Experts

Our History

Since its conception, Healthy Ponds has strived to find natural solutions to enhance and clean pond water. Founded in 1995 as a research and development company, the Healthy Ponds team focused on creating safe and innovative ways to improve pond-water quality. After years of formulation, testing, and approvals, we introduced our first line of commercial products in 1999.

Throughout the years, Healthy Ponds has introduced advanced water solutions such as the patented AquaSphere®PRO and Pond Water Cleaner dispenser. These dispensers, combined with advanced continuous-release technology, consume excess nutrients in ponds and lakes by incubating, growing, and dispensing beneficial bacteria 24/7 for up to 30 days.

Our products enjoy high success rates in treating ponds and larger bodies of water, which are ecologically balanced. And they help control issues such as algae and duckweed in a natural way.

In 2008, Healthy Ponds was purchased by a committed group of long-time investors, who believe in the lasting benefits of natural products. And by assisting with bioremediation in ponds, lakes, and other types of water both large and small, our products help bring back the beauty and health of pond and lake water in an environmentally friendly way.
