You need to have patience. If you’ve stocked your pond with plenty of plants, the temperature’s just right, and you’ve started supplementing with D-Solv and SAT, your pond will quickly balance. Beneficial bacteria, or SAT, need to be added with a consistent maintenance routine to obtain optimal results. Resist the urge to add traditional algaecides after your pond is balanced, unless your pond is lacking a proper filtration system. With overuse, your pond will never become truly balanced, and often, ponds can become dependent on their use. Help support Mother Nature with use of natural products from Garden Ponds Unlimited. Your pond and the environment will thank you!
