Guide for Maintaining Mud Bottom Ponds

Turpin Landscaping recommends installing an aeration system in your pond or lake whether you use it for swimming, fishing or just visual enjoyment. The benefits provided by bottom diffused aeration will keep your water clean, clear and balanced all season long to create the perfect pond.

No matter the season, your pond will benefit from constant aeration. Even better; when you allow us to size and recommend an Airmax® Aeration System for your pond or lake, we guarantee the result. (see how to install a pond aerator)

Turpin Landscaping also recommends adding the Pond Logic line of Pond & Lake Water Treatments to work with an Airmax® Aeration System. These products are formulated with Beneficial Bacteria that dramatically reduces organic debris and promotes water clarity. The Pond Logic Pond Clear, Muck-Away and EcoBoost are all naturally safe for recreational ponds, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife and the environment.

PondClear
Pond Clear is beneficial bacteria that helps clean and clear water naturally. It is safe for recreational ponds, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife and the environment.

Muckaway
Muckaway is beneficial bacteria that helps eliminates mucky bottoms. It can eliminate up to 5 inches of muck per year. It is safe for recreational ponds, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife and the environment.

Ecoboost
Ecoboost is beneficial bacteria that helps enhance PondClear when extra help is needed to create clean and clear water. It binds phosphates and provides trace minerals for fish. It is safe for recreational ponds, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife and the environment.

Pond Weed Defense
Helps eliminate weeds such as Duckweed, Water meal, and many other common pond weeds. This is an aquatic herbicide but is not harmful to the fish. Use with caution.

The third component that may be added to your pond or lake to be used in conjunction with an aeration system and water treatments is a fountain. Also brought to us by Airmax is the EcoSeries™ Floating Fountain. These fountains operate in as little as 24″ of water depth and include an energy efficient 1/2 HP motor, 3 spray patterns, control panel and comes standard with 100′ of power cord. The EcoSeries™ Fountain is also available in 150, 200′ or 250′ power cord lengths and includes a 3 Year Warranty.
