fish swimming

My pond smells.

Sometimes your pond can emit odors and you can’t blame the fish. Pond odors are a sure indicator of more pond problems to come as organic materials are becoming more active in the lower levels of your pond. For foul-smelling ponds, we recommend that you use our product Natural Blast® for 30 days, in the following increments:

  • Day 1 – Recommend dosage of Natural Blast®
  • Day 15 – Recommend dosage of Natural Blast®
  • Day 30 – Recommend dosage of Natural Blast® & AquaSphere®PRO
    Continue treatment until smell dissipates and maintain with monthly AquaSphere®PRO treatment.

My pond is clear now, but I anticipate problems with warmer weather.

Algae & Weed Problems

For treating weeds and various forms of algae we recommend a variety of chemical products.

For treating pond algae conditions, Healthy Ponds has selected specific algaecides that have been effective and compatible with Healthy Ponds water cleaning products. When used together the products improve water quality and can be used for algae control. Natural products from Healthy Ponds are all-natural and are used for maintaining water clarity. Healthy Ponds natural products are NOT Algaecides/Pesticides.

Algae are very primitive plants. Some algae are microscopic (planktonic algae), others are thin and stringy or hair-like (filamentous algae), while still others are large and resemble higher plants but without true roots (muskgrass/chara). All algaecide treatments should be followed up 30 days later with our all-natural pond treatment products.

My pond has an extreme planktonic algae problem.

Planktonic algae can overtake a pond and quickly progress into an “algae bloom”.  When the algae has progressed this far, it can be harmful to animals and humans. This problem is best treated with our algaecide Captain and followed up with our non-algaecide all-natural products, by using our 3 step all-natural treatment plan.

My pond has an extreme filamentous algae problem.

Similar to planktonic algae problems, extreme filamentous algae is best treated with our algaecide Captain and followed up with our non-algaecide all-natural products, by using our 3 step all-natural treatment plan.

My pond has Muskgrass/Chara.

Muskgrass/Chara can be removed by trying to rake it out, but that is often ineffective and difficult to control because it reestablishes from spores and fragments. This problem is best treated with our algaecide Captain and followed up with our non-algaecide, 3 step all-natural treatment plan.

aquatic vegetation

I have aquatic vegetation or weeds taking over my pond.

Various weeds can take over a pond. Not sure what type of weed that is in your pond? Take a look at our Weed Definitions page to learn more.
