Algae can become a nightmare if not controlled

Algae can take all the fun out of your natural swimming pond environment if it is allowed to get out of control. The theory that the plants will take the goodness, depriving the algae doesn't always workout in practice. You may get hot spells of intense sunlight, during the Spring algae become active before the plants so gain a head start,  the pH may alter restricting the take up of nutrients by the plants - many things can happen in the natural world to swing the balance in favour of algae so it is important to be prepared. Don't believe anyone who tells you algae will not be an issue, it will but don't let this put you off. You should think of it like weeds in a border. If you don't keep an eye on it and take precautions it can quickly get out of hand.

What we don't want to do is use chemicals, after all we have a natural environment and we don't want it polluted with chemicals. To keep algae under control we recommend a natural product called EcoTreat Clarity Pro. This is a specially isolated consortium of naturally occurring, environmentally safe bacterial strains which possess an enhanced capability to extract and scavenge carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus from the pond, rstricting availability to the algae. If you want to know more, then read the EcoTreat Clarity Pro Acrobat file.
