Algae problems happen when you have a combination of water, sun and nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorous). Some species of algae are called filamentous and form mats while some are microscopic making your water appear green.
This unwelcome plant life is unsightly and a severe bloom can deplete the pond’s valuable dissolved oxygen.
Almost all ponds have sludge build up – it’s the organic sediment at the bottom of the pond. The pond may have plenty of oxygen at the top, but in the sludge at the bottom there’s very little. Disease and odour-causing ‘anaerobic bacteria’ live in the sludge.
