Universal Aquatics offers pond algae maintenance services to our customers in the Atlanta, Georgia area. We offer trained pond biologists that can determine what is causing the excess algae growth as well as offer the best possible solution to keep it under control so your water feature can be admired by you and your family for years to come.
Pond algae problems are typically caused by an excess of nutrients in the water, not enough aquatic pond plants in the system and too much direct sunlight. If you can create a proper balanced ecosystem in your pond, algae can be managed. You will never be able to get rid of pond algae 100%, and the truth is that you really don’t want to. Believe it or not, algae is normal part of all aquatic ecosystems. It can however be controlled and managed.
The two main types of koi pond algae that gives pond owners trouble is green water that is similar to pea soup and string algae which occurs mostly in the waterfall and stream portion of the water feature. With the proper pond filters and excellent algae management techniques, both types can be a thing of the past.
Universal Aquatics offers pond filter installation for existing backyard koi ponds.
Pond filters are an extremely important part of a healthy water feature. Undersized or a lack of pond filters often contributes to the cause of an unhealthy pond ecosystem. By adding proper pond filtration to your existing koi pond, your backyard will become the true paradise that it was intended to be.
Filters for your pond are designed to clean your system in a couple different ways. Not only do they help filter out waste in the pond by trapping it in the filter pads, but they also allow beneficial bacteria to colonize and naturally filter your pond water. The result if installed correctly is a balanced ecosystem where your koi fish and plants can thrive in a natural and balanced ecosystem.
