The build-up of large amounts of algae and sludge, together with cloudy water, are among the most common problems in natural ponds. This is the result of a high nutrient content, among other things. Multikraft pond products support natural cycles, promote plant growth and the breakdown of sludge and stabilise the ecological balance of the water. For clear water in natural ponds, we therefore recommend our specially developed products: Pond Clear and eMB® Starter.
Mix Pond Clear and eMB® Starter together and then dilute the mixture until the solution can easily be applied to the surface of the pond. Depending on the application method (spray, watering can, pump, etc.), dilute the products between 1:5 and 1:10 with water. Apply the mixture primarily in the plant areas, on the edge of the pond and in the water courses. Repeat the treatment at least once a year.
Timing and frequency:
Whereas in ordinary swimming ponds the water body is cleaned by sinking of floating algae and the associated sedimentation, and nutrient competition with algae is created by sufficient planting of aquatic plants, in the natural pool nutrients are bound by the build-up of a biofilm in the filter body. Over time, however, the filter body begins to shift due to continuous growth of the biofilm and the filter performance decreases. Normally, the water circulation is then switched off for a few days, the biofilm dies and the nutrient-rich water (with dead biofilm) is removed from the filter body by backwashing.
