Lets Learn about Pond Management

Did You Know That…

…Every Pond and Lake Life Cycle has 2 Stages?

STAGE 1 – Pond has little or no muck accumulation or excessive nutrients.
Aquatic growth is easy to manage. Pond looks great but this stage usually
lasts for only the first 3 to 5 years of the pond’s existence.
STAGE 2 – Pond has heavier layers of muck accumulation and excessive
nutrients. Aquatic growth becomes excessive and harder to manage.
PROBLEM – Most pond owners that reached Stage 2 and are in a REACTIVE
mode to pond management. They wait to see growth before treating it.

…Every Unaerated Pond and Lake, at Least 6’ Deep,is Thermally Stratified?

 


Pond Bottom: Water is colder with lower oxygen levels (anaerobic environment),
and is home to most of the toxic gases that accumulate in a pond.
Pond Surface: Water is warmer with higher oxygen levels (aerobic environment),
and is home to the majority of the pond’s fish population.
PROBLEM – Thermal Stratification can contribute to high levels of muck, cloudy
water, and is one of the main causes of winter fish kills

…Every Pond has Naturally Occurring Bacteria?But is it the Right Type?

Anaerobic Bacteria (Most Common) – These non-aggressive bacteria reside primarily
below the muck on the pond’s bottom. They consume muck at an extremely slow rate
and are responsible for releasing foul smelling gases, as well as nutrients that feed future
plant life. Anaerobic Bacteria requires no oxygen to thrive.
Aerobic Bacteria (Found in Pond Logic® Natural Bacteria Products) – These
aggressive bacteria compete with plants and algae for available nutrients, helping to
clear the water and digest muck. This decomposition process leaves nothing more than
an odorless gas that escapes out of the water column unnoticed. Aerobic Bacteria do
best when high levels of oxygen are present.
PROBLEM – Most ponds only contain high levels of anaerobic bacteria, which create a
more difficult environment to adequately manage excessive nutrients and pond muck.

PROACTIVE vs. REACTIVE Pond Management

Until recently, most pond owners have relied on REACTIVE pond management
practices to keep their ponds clear of excessive, unwanted, aquatic growth. They’ve
traditionally waited for the problem to appear then treated it chemically. Although
sometimes necessary as a management tool, chemical applications can be bandages
for the real problem and can actually contribute to the problem by adding more
nutrient-rich muck to the pond increasing the overall nutrient load.
With the introduction of the Airmax® Ecosystem program, pond owners have now
been able to convert to, and rely on, PROACTIVE pond management practices. With
the use of aeration, 100% natural bacteria and/or pond dyes, they’ve been able to
get directly to SOURCE of their problems; excessive nutrients in the water column
and muck at the bottom of the pond. By providing microbial competition for the
nutrients, they’ve successfully maintained healthy, clear ponds for all to enjoy.
