What are the benefits of using a blanketweed treatment?
Pond algae treatments work gently by releasing bacteria into the water to help clear up excess nutrients, helping to starve the algae. Control Blanketweed from Swell UK provides a 2-in-1 formulation approach to pond maintenance. The special combination of bacteria helps reduce nitrate and phosphate levels, aid the break-down of bottom sludge and odours, and helps to make your pond water less murky. The bacteria will reduce excess fish food, fish waste, toxic nutrients such as ammonia and nitrite plus problem causing nutrients such as nitrate and phosphate.
What causes blanketweed?
Blanketweed is a type of algae, scientifically called filamentous algae. It's also commonly known as string algae. Being algae, blanketweed needs light, water and food to survive. Without those three ingredients, it won’t get started in the first place. Controlling two of them can help tackle it once established. The commonest way it comes into the pond is on aquatic plants like water lilies, although it can become established in ponds with no pond plants whatsoever, like Koi ponds, so its spores are probably airborne. As well as using a blanket weed treatment, we recommend using a blanketweed brush for larger ponds to remove string algae and floating algae.
For best results, use a double dose the first time you use the algae treatment. Place the sachet in an area of flowing water, such as in the filter or near a waterfall and ensure that your pond is well filtered and aerated, particularly at night, when oxygen levels drop. Use when the temperatures are above 10°C/50°F and apply every 1-2 weeks, or as needed, to keep your water clean and healthy.
