Product information

"Sunglasses effect" thanks to biological algae blocker
The natural colour extracts of the peat in AlgoPond Sorb lead to a slight amber tinge in the pond water. This, similar to sunglasses, absorbs certain spectral components from the light. For the algae an essential part of radiation is missing and their growth is limited. Hardness and pH are not affected. Active iodine and vital substances promote the health of the fish.

Easy use of AlgoPond Sorb
Determine the required quantity. Mix with pond water in a watering can and spread it evenly over the pond. Don’t filter with activated carbon. Also recommended for swimming ponds.

Dosage: 40 ml per about 700 -800 l pond water.

FAQ
What is JBL AlgoPond Sorb for? When should I use it?

JBL AlgoPond Sorb is like a pair of sunglasses for the garden pond. The humic substances contained there turn the water slightly amber and thus reduce the amount of light entering the pond. Caring substances like Aloe Vera promote the well-being of the fish. One dosage starting in early spring (from the end of February, depending on weather conditions) and repeated every 4 weeks largely prevents the growth of algae.

I have successfully combatted the algae, but they have come back. Why have they returned and how can I prevent it?

The main cause of algae in garden ponds is too much light and too many nutrients. When combatting the algae, the nutrients bound in them are released, but then during the next spell of fine weather with sufficient light these nutrients are in the pond again ready to feed the next algae attack.

Preventive measure: JBL PhosExPond direct precipitates phosphates, they are removed from the water and from the algae. JBL PhosExPond filter permanently binds phosphates and limits their value. Having dealt with the algae JBL BactoPond can then be applied to minimize the nitrigen compounds. JBL SediExPond helps reduce the sludge at the bottom of the pond with its heterotrophic (all eating) strains of bacteria.

JBL AlgoPond Sorb adds natural humic substances to the water and through its slight amber colouring reduces the excessive amount of light entering the garden pond. This in turn results in a significant reduction of algae growth.

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.
