Product information

Against algae in the garden pond
AlgoPond Forte combats all kinds of algae (green water and thread algae) highly effectively by systematically affecting the algae’s metabolism.

JBL’s zero-risk concept
Algae can pollute the pond water and thus cause damage to the fish and the plants in the pond. In collaboration with scientists JBL has developed a concept for a permanent removal of algae.

“1-2-3 algae-free”
Stabilise the water: increase the mineral content for anti-algae agents (JBL StabiloPond) to work more effectively
Combat algae: add a suitable anti-algae agent (JBL AlgoPond) into the water
Limit nutrients: remove the nutrients of dying algae (JBL PhosExPond)

Easy use of AlgoPond Forte
Always use it in the morning. Determine the required quantity for the garden pond. Mix the calculated quantity with pond water in a watering can and spread it evenly over the pond. Don’t filter through activated carbon. Switch off any UVC devices for a week After use do not bathe in swimming ponds for 5 days.

Dosage: 50 ml per approx. 1000 l pond water.

FAQ
Is JBL AlgoPond Forte safe for fish?

With proper dosage and application JBL AlgoPond Forte is safe for fish.

In the instructions of JBL AlgoPond Forte it says that UV-C devices should be switched off for a week. Is it one week before or after use?

The UV-C devices should be switched off for a week, starting at the beginning of the treatment (the addition of JBL AlgoPond Forte).

Why should JBL AlgoPond Forte be used in the mornings?

During the day the pH value increases to potentially very high values, especially when there is an algae plague. With high pH values the effectiveness of JBL AlgoPond Forte is reduced. It is therefore important to stabilize the water in the evening as required, and then to carry out an algae treatment in the morning, when the pH value is reduced.

Should the plants stay in the water before a treatment with JBL AlgoPond Forte, or would it be better to take them out?

Used correctly JBL AlgoPond Forte is well tolerated by plants, so that the plants can remain in the garden pond. However with repeated applications sensitive pond plants like the watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spec.) can be damaged.

I followed the instructions and used JBL StabiloPond KH in the evenings and JBL Algo Pond Forte in the mornings. But I couldn’t see any difference.

It is the correct procedure to use JBL StabiloPond in the evenings and JBLPond Forte in the mornings. However, depending on the conditions in the pond, the active substance needs 2-5 days before a reduction in algae growth becomes apparent. This cannot become apparent within a few hours. If necessary an additional dosage of AlgoPond Forte can be applied. This is useful in individual cases, when there is a very high level of algae growth.
