The best way to achieve a natural pond ecosystem and reduce pond weeds is to add pond aeration as a natural solution. Reducing pond weeds by using a pond aerator is a simple solution to a pond overrun by weeds. There are chemicals to reduce pond weeds, but here is why that is not a smart solution.Why Using Chemicals to Reduce Pond Weeds is NOT a Smart Solution – Chemicals ruin water quality as the dead weeds rot and release the chemicals they have taken up. As they rot, they also consume oxygen, and increase bottom organic sediment. Fish will often die as a result of the oxygen depletion. Chemicals to kill pond weeds do nothing to remove muck, fertilizer, nothing to improve water quality, reduce odors, or improve fish growth or health.
Why Adding a Pond Aerator Will Successfully Reduce Pond Weeds – Pond aeration is the process of adding oxygen to improve water quality which is needed by fish, aquatic animals as well as aerobic bacteria to decompose organic matter. Pond aeration increases the process of oxidizing or eliminating pollution. Pond aeration system works by using special equipment called aerators. The aerator adds dissolved oxygen to the pond which improves water quality, allowing aerobic bacteria to decompose organic matter which will naturally reduce pond weeds.
Reduce pond weeds by pond aeration is based on the principle that ponds restore themselves using natural processes already in the water. A water restoration process, using pond aeration duplicates those natural processes and accelerates them to keep up with today’s pollutants.
