Products for Biological Control of Algae
A pond green with algae is not very attractive and must be controlled. Biological control should be attempted before chemicals are tried. Two important biological controls should be done:
Tricker's Satisfied CUSTOMERS!
First: Approximately 60 to 70 percent of the surface covered with foliage of water lilies, floating plants, shallow water and bog plants and the use of oxygenating plants is vital. These plants will not only limit the amount of sunlight necessary for the growth of algae but will take minerals out of the water faster than the algae and the algae will starve.
Second: Tricker's offers biological safe additives for the water garden pool, such as the natural bacteria that is found in nature. These additives will help the water garden pool remove excess nutrients that feed algae and keep your water healthy and clean from algae. Tricker's selected products will NOT harm fish, tadpoles, salamanders, clams, snails, aquatic plants, daphnia...they are BIOLOGICAL!
CALCULATION OF GALLONS in YOUR POOL: Before you select any of the products compute the gallons of water in your pool: Multiply in feet the length X width X depth X 7.5 = Gallons OR for a round pool 0.8 X Diameter X Diameter X Depth X 7.5 = Gallons. If in doubt, please call.
