Essential Pond Supplies
For a healthy pond
whether it be water garden pond or fish pond, there are essential
supplies one must gather to keep the pond healthy and clean and
beautiful. Without these supplies, the prospect of a clean pond goes
down the drain and you are left with a mess that could only break the
pond owner’s heart.
Think about what could happen if you do
not proper maintain your pond. You spend all that effort and money
to build your dream pond.
It has beautiful Koi or other fish, great
plants, and great decorations to complete the scenery. It is lovely
for a week or so but then you notice the water starts getting murky.
Debris and dead leaves start piling up. All the sudden, you start
noticing unwanted algae growth in your pond and soon it starts taking
over the pond. The pond is no longer a dream place but it has become
a headache to deal with. If proper pond supplies had been secured
for the care of the pond, then you would not have those headaches.
To clear up your pond
of those algae growth and make it clear again, UV sterilizers should
be purchased and added to your pond supplies. A good UV sterilizer
will provide control of suspended algae, primary cause of green
water. Within five day of installing a sterilizer, it will remove
heavy algae blooms. It will also maintain water clarity and reduce
maintenance. Most of these units are compact, durable, and easy to
install without wasting too much energy.
Another important pond
supply to have is the filtration system. Filters will help keep the
water healthy for the fish. Other pond additives can also be
purchased to help keep the pond healthy. There are additives to turn
tap water into pond water or boost the biological life in and around
the pond. If you have Koi, then there are additives that help
recreate ecological conditions that are good for the Koi. Of course
good Koi food is a must to keep those Koi healthy. There are many
varieties of Koi and fish food to choose from to meet your needs.
The most popular brand in Japan is Hikari fish food for its
reputation to bring out color and help promote healthy fish.
The above are just some
of the pond supplies you can get for your pond. With proper
supplies, you will help ensure the health of your pond.
