Pond Bacteria That Fights Throughout Winter!
Winter is when people turn off their pumps, stop feeding fish, stop adding bacteria and forget about their ponds until spring. We retreat to the warmth, indulge on food and drink and forget about the pond that we cared for dearly.
Whilst this seems like the logical thing to do, it also makes your job a lot harder come spring. Debris builds up in the pond and breaks down, leaching out organics and algae spores in to the water. These algae spores lay dormant until temperatures rise above 8°C, where they have the perfect conditions to explode in growth. They have warmth, a food source from the deposited debris and most importantly no bacteria to fight with.
Winter Pond Treatment contains large amounts of innovative bacteria that work at 4°C up to 14°C to digest algae spores and unwanted organics that enter your pond during winter. Our bacteria are strong at 4°C and towards 0°C, so you don’t suffer algae bloom or green water in spring.’
By using winter pond bacteria with a good winter preparation program, you can turn off your pump knowing that someone/something is taking care of the problem. Winter Pond Treatment contains no chemicals and is safe for all fish, wildlife and filters.
The Serious Bits
Ensure that pH level is between 7.5 & 8.5 and KH level is above 5 before using any bacterial treatment to get the most from the treatment.
When winter has passed, consider using Pond Klear to maintain pond health and keep green water at bay. Bacteria are a living organism and like any living organism, they only have a certain lifespan. Once this lifespan has been reached, they die and should be replaced, so it is important to add bacteria to your pond all year.
