Aquatic Weed Control in Lakes and Ponds

Natural and Organic Aquatic Weed Control and Controlling Duckweed

The most important step in aquatic weed control in lakes and backyard fish ponds is to fully oxygenate the bottom through CLEAN-FLO’s unique pond pump and lake aerator. Install a CLEAN-FLO pond water feature and lake aerator to precipitate up to three times as much phosphorus and nitrogen as watershed management can accomplish. This results in up to 97 percent or more phosphorus and nitrogen removal. The phosphorus and nitrogen then become food for insects and fish, resulting in improved lake fishing and pond fishing. Because the phosphorus and nitrogen go into food for fish, the aeration system produces lake and pond restoration.
Once you attain full oxygenation of the bottom of your lake or pond with a lake aeration system, the following natural water treatment chemicals and lake management products will give you optimum lake weed control and pond weed control.
