Product information

Natural balance in the garden pond
Plant and food remains, metabolic substances and leaves deteriorate the quality of the water in the garden pond. Good water quality is necessary to ensure the health of fish and plants. Each season makes different demands on the garden pond. A water test will help recognise deficits in the pond water so that you can take the necessary steps.

Promotes the break down of bacteria
Environmental influences, such as thunderstorms or acid rain or the prevalent reproduction of certain microorganisms can disturb the natural balance in the pond. BactoPond re-establishes the natural balance and thus supports the pond’s capacity for self-purification. BactoPond creates healthy and clean water through the organic removal of dangerous substances.

BactoPond is easy to use
Calculate the required quantity. Mix the required quantity with pond water in a watering can and spread it evenly over the pond. Use regularly every two weeks to support the pond’s self-purification. After heavy rainfalls or in case of a visibly disturbed balance of the pond environment. Do not bathe in swimming ponds for 24 hours after use.

Dosage
40 ml per approx. 700 – 800 l pond water.
After special incidents (rain, disturbed balance): double the amount.

Pond care

The different seasons (at least in Central Europe) require different care measures. Even in countries where there are no cold winters with minus degrees, factors like rainy seasons, dry seasons or perhaps a summer with particularly high temperatures all play a decisive role for the garden pond.

Fish diseases

In case your pond fish fall ill, we will show you which disease it is, and how to combat it reliably here.

Algae problems

Why are algae a problem? What algae species can be found in the pond and how can you combat them effectively and for the long-term?

1-2-3 algae-free concept

Sooner or later every pond owner has to deal with the algae issue. Sometimes I’s the first time they’ve had to think about it and sometimes they have tried out various methods and treatments – unfortunately without any long term success. JBL has put scientists to work on that problem and they have worked out a concept which will guarantee success.
