Got Algae Problems?
These pages were designed to provide information and solutions for
various common water quality, algae, and aquatic plant problems
associated with ponds, lakes, and water features. We strive
to provide accurate, effective, and reliable information provided
by Kasco Marine, Inc. a manufacturer of high quality, affordable
aerating floating fountains, pond aerators, and water circulators
for improved water quality and beauty. Kasco aerating fountains,
pond aerators, and water circulators can assist in improving your
ponds appearance, water quality, and your enjoyment of your water
feature. We will focus on total water quality management
with aeration being a key component, but possibly not a complete
pond management tool.
Algae often is a catch-all
for all aquatic plant problems, when in fact, algae is just one
of several aquatic plant species that can greatly affect your pond.
Adding an aeration device to your pond will help maintain healthy
pond ecology and assist in returning a natural balance to a pond
that is overrun with aquatic plants and algae. Aeration is an important
ingredient to overall water quality and pond health, but often aeration
is more effective in conjunction with several other methods of obtaining
better water quality for your pond or lake and less algae problems.

of how to effectively combat these water quality problems. A quick
