There’s no way around it. Whether your water feature is huge, elaborate and expensive or a small 4′ x 6′ pond, you will be dealing with algae. Algae actually indicates a healthy ecosystem, but left uncontrolled, it can become ugly and damaging. AlgaeFix has been our preferred control for years.
Follow label directions carefully…we apply every three days until control becomes apparent. During the most prolific algae blooms, three applications may be necessary, and then occasional treatments will keep the water garden free of algae.
PondCare AlgaeFix effectively controls many types of green or green water algae, string or hair algae and blanketweed in ponds that contain live plants. Controls existing algae and helps resolve additional algae blooms. Keeps ornamental ponds and water gardens clean & clear. Can be used in ponds containing fish and plants.
PondCare AlgaeFix effectively controls these types of algae: Green water algae (Chlorella), String or Hair algae (Cladophora) & Blanketweed (Oedogonium) in ornamental ponds & fountains.
Safe for aquatic pond plants and fish.
For our 11′ x 16′ pond, one gallon of AlgaeFix will control algae for an entire season. We are pretty fussy about keeping our water garden super clean…you might not be so stringent and need less AlgaeFix. Also, each site is unique and will require more or less algae control, beneficial bacteria and/or other inputs.
