Pond treatment guidance
Algae can be a common problem in ponds, particularly in summer time. There are two main forms of algae - blanket weed and green/cloudy water. If your pond is suffering from this it is important to use a pond treatment rather than changing the pond water, as this will promote the problem to grow further.
If your water appears to be discoloured and your fish seem in poor health, we would advise you look into using a sludge remover. These signs usually suggest that your pond may be suffering from a toxic sludge layer. Our selection of sludge removers can be used directly in the water itself or alternatively in the pond filter. Learn more about the differences between pond algae and sludge in our respective blog posts, how to remove algae and our guide to pond sludge available online now to understand what you're dealing with and how to tackle it.
