Water treatment

Your pond in top condition

To enable you to enjoy your pond to the full it is important that your pond water is in top condition. To keep your water in top condition you should regularly check your water values and add water treatment products and pond bacteria. In this section you will be introduced to a number of reputable brands for water treatment and pond bacteria. These will help you to achieve, restore and maintain the natural balance in your pond.

What are water values and why are they so important?

All the water values combined determine the overall water quality. Since ponds in a garden are often much more densely populated than they are in the wild, we need to give nature a helping hand to achieve a healthy balance.
