Pond Water Treatments

The clarity of the water from a pond or garden water depends on the interaction of a variety of biological processes, as determined by the water quality and the water purifying bacteria.

Sometimes these processes are disrupted by external factors (such as fallen leaves, organic waste etc.), so that the water becomes cloudy and algae appear. That is why it is important to help nature to the fullest and protect your swimming pond against these negative influences.

While many pond owners may view using bacteria as an unusual way to purify their water, it is actually the most natural way to do it! That is how nature cleans the environment. Ultimately all waste products in the environment have to be recycled back to the biosphere and bacteria are nature’s recyclers. The most important of these cycles from the standpoint of a pond is the Nitrogen Cycle. Here is a simplified depiction of the cycle.

One of the common by products of protein breakdown, like the protein in fish food, is ammonia. This ammonia can be toxic to fish and other aquatic life in concentrations as low as 1.0 mg/L depending on the pH. Fish emit this through their gills. The majority of the ammonia in the pond can be traced to this source. Some can also be traced to the breakdown of uneaten fish food and plant material. When a pond is conditioned or capable of cycling, it means that the necessary bacteria have been developed to convert the ammonia to nitrite and, subsequently, nitrate. In many ponds, this nitrate can accumulate and provide nutrients for unwanted plant growth. MICROBE-LIFT/PL allows your pond to take the nitrogen cycle another step by further chemically reducing the nitrate to nitrogen gas, which harmlessly bubbles out of the pond.

Another important natural cycle is the carbon cycle. All living things primarily comprise carbon. Fish waste contains a carbonaceous component. Much of the sludge that builds up on the bottom of most ponds is organic—made up of carbon compounds. Other bacteria in MICROBE-LIFT/PL known as heterotrophs break down this sludge and convert it to carbon dioxide and water. Used in conjunction with MICROBE-LIFT/ Sludge Awa y, MICROBE-LIFT/PL can keep most ponds clean and sludge free.
