Here’s how to solve algae problems in the long run and successfully

Let's be honest: Sooner or later every pond owner has to deal with the algae issue. Sometimes it’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 put their scientists to work on the problem and they have worked out a concept which will guarantee success.

Of course a guaranteed successful concept involves following the instructions as accurately as possible. The same rules also apply to the JBL “1-2-3 algae-free” concept. Follow all the steps in the correct order and in their entirety. Then it will work! This we promise and guarantee you!

Permanent algae control – here’s how it works

A few algae in the pond do not pose a problem and can even be part of a healthy pond. But once the water turns green or threaded algae become rampant, you have a problem which needs combatting. Effective and long-term algae control consists, as already mentioned, of three steps:

Step 1

Stabilise the water by adding minerals to adjust the pH value of the water to enable the anti-algae agents of the second step to be effective. At too high pH levels the anti-algae agents won’t work effectively, and extreme, short-term changes to the pH value will endanger the stability of your pond! In the evening before you add the anti-algae agent, add JBL StabiloPond KH . This way your pH level will be stabilised and brought into a range where the anti-algae agents have an optimal effect.

Step 2

Now add the anti-algae agent, preferably aimed against the dominant type of algae. If there are several types of algae JBL AlgoPond Forte * is the best choice. Should you have a problem with floating algae (green water) please use JBL AlgoPond Green * .

For thread algae (green thread-like formations on the bottom, plants and stones) please choose, as for several types of algae, JBL AlgoPond Forte *.

It is generally important to add your chosen anti-algae agent to the pond IN THE MORNING. This is because the pH value of the water is the lowest in the morning and therefore the anti-algae agent can work most effectively then. Doing this in the evening would be counterproductive since the pH value rises in the course of the day and would restrict the agent’s effect!

Step 3

The third step relates to the removal of the algae nutrient phosphate. As soon as step 2 takes effect and the algae die, they release the nutrients they absorbed during their growth phase back into the water. This provides a plentiful food supply for the next algae generation. A phosphate remover ( JBL PhosEx Pond Direct ) helps you prevent these nutrients from reaching the next generation of algae and thus endangers their existence: the algae can’t grow back anymore!

JBL grants you a functional guarantee!

JBL grants a functional guarantee on this 1-2-3 algae-free concept. It turned out in the many comments we received that 80 % had used the wrong dosage because they had estimated the number of litres of their pond INCORRECTLY! On the JBL website you can find a pond volume calculator which precisely determines the number of litres of your pond:

One last word before concluding:

Now your pond is algae-free and you have been successful with the JBL 1-2-3 algae-free concept. Of course, we would have preferred to sell you only one product to solve all your pond problems. But such a product doesn’t exist and you certainly have found out that your pond represents a complicated and sensitive biological system!

The success of the JBL 1-2-3 algae-free concept is due to it approaching the problems in a scientific manner. If the algae problem reappears next year, you will be well prepared. Anyone who understands the 3 steps (stabilisation - algae combat – limitation of nutrients) and carries them out, will be successful! We wish you continued success with your garden pond.
