ARE WATER TREATMENTS NECESSARY FOR MY POND
Even the most well cared for pond can go south under certain conditions: big ol' dust storm, introduction of a foreign substance via a visiting bird or duck, accidental over-fertilization, etc. The proper water treatment product can help get things back on track.
WHICH TREATMENT DO I USE FOR WHAT ISSUE?
Below is a helpful cheat sheet that should get you going in the right direction for which water treatment product to use for what issue:
HOW DO I STORE THE WATER TREATMENT PRODUCTS?
Most water treatment products contain live bacteria and enzymes in either dry or liquid form. These must be stored properly for them to remain effective. THESE PRODUCTS NEED TO BE KEPT BETWEEN 50 AND 90 DEGREES AT ALL TIMES OR THEY BECOME INERT! Therefore, the best course of action is to store them inside, not on your patio or in your storage shed.
WHERE CAN I GET WATER TREATMENT PRODUCTS?
For in-person purchases, check with your closest Ewing Irrigation store. Otherwise, you can buy the products online. For best results, make sure you're getting genuine Aquascape water treatment products. If you choose to order online, make sure that you are getting them shipped quickly during the summer months, so they don't get overheated, as this causes them to become inert (see below).
