Small water bodies (fish ponds, stock troughs, water features)

- May raise pH when used in small water bodies so a starting pH of 6.8 to 7.5 is preferred.

Algae Lift is not an algaecide, it works with innovative peroxygen chemistry that lifts algae and organic muck up to the surface where it can then be removed by net or left for good bacteria to feed on. For best results follow up with WaterTreats biological treatment a few hours after using Algae Life. WaterTreats biological treatments are all natural and do a great job helping mother nature clean up water without the use of chemicals. Algae Lift will increase oxygen levels as it dissolves but then as the algae and organic muck is attacked by natural microbes a drop in oxygen may occur so make sure enough aeration or circulation is provided.
Small and large ponds, water features, dams.
What we liked:
This water treatment works in front of you, sprinkle and watch algae float to the surface, for you to either scoop it out or for it to sink and for beneficial bacteria to feed off of it. Pair with Biostim Accelerator for speedy results.
