Green Water Solution #1
You’re having problems with water clarity, and it’s green. You want clean clear water, and the first thing that should be done is using Rapid Clear (standard), or Aquascapes Rapid Clear Pro. This is a flocculent, and it’s completely safe for wildlife, plants, and even your fish. Within just a few hours, Rapid Clear will cause the particles in the water to create larger masses that can easily be filtered out by your pump. Replace your filters if necessary as well.
Green Water Treatment Option #2
Fortunately many different products exist solely to clarify the green water problem in your water garden. Two products that our professional waterscapers recommend are the EcoBlast and the SAB. We also carry SAB-PRO, which is much more concentrated. Both will effectively clean ponds and streams as well. These two combined are the ultimate way to have pristine water. Both of the SAB and Beneficial Bacteria for Ponds/Dry products consume excess nutrients in your water garden, then break down decayed organics, and help reduce odor and sludge problems that sometimes arise in waterscapes. The SAB also has a strong phosphate binder that locks up nutrients that cause problems. To keep your water garden optimally clear use both the SAB and EcoBlast once a week!
Getting Rid of Green Water Easily #3
Another option for taking care of green water is by using UV Filters. There are two types of UV filters for your waterscape, and we offer both! The Aquascape UltraKlean Pressure Filter with UV or the Aquascape UltraKlear UV Clarifier are both great options.
First off, the new Aquascape UltraKlean pressure filter is put beside your pond (beside, not inside). Next, your Aquascape pump will push the waterscape water through the UltraKclean, which exposes the pond water through the biological filtration system, which is a a high-output UV bulb, and finally back into the pond. When we use this method of removing green water in the pond, the UltraKlean will let you have pristine water and a low-maintenance waterscape you’ve always wanted!
