Ponds Are Not Pools

We love to help our customers have beautiful looking ponds…but we fully support our motto of being the leaders in responsible aquatic management.

My Pond Algae is Worse than My Neighbor’s

We compare our homes, cars, kids… so why wouldn’t you compare your pond to your neighbors? “My neighbors pond is beautiful and mine is covered in pond algae…WHY?” No two ponds are the same and to expect the same conditions in two different ponds is absurd.
