Solar pumps are not usually found in successful countries economy-wise. This is due to the fact they were first introduced in countries that are not so well-off financially. This isn’t surprising since the main power source is the sunlight, which is FREE! This is among the unique pond supplies you will see in the market. On the other hand, these pumps have become well-known all over the world due to the advantages they can give.
Algae bloom is free-floating, while string algae hangs from waterfall rocks, surface water or attaches to marine plants. The string kind are very stubborn to get rid of but, fortunately, there was a product introduced to the market five years ago that will take care of the problem. There is also an extract from barley that gives off natural enzymes and stops its growth. The treatment for bloom algae will not work on the string kind.
Algae are single celled plant-life that uses photosynthesis to reproduce. Photosynthesis occurs when the algae absorb the surrounding sunlight, carbon dioxide and nutrients found in the water and exhale oxygen as waste.
Make sure also that your pond has clean water. Clean your pond by replacing your about 10% of the water every week. Also make sure that your Teichtechnik is free from chlorine and the acidity is well monitored.
First and foremost, before you even put fish into your pond, you should be thinking about breeding. Do you want your koi to eventually spawn in the wild or under controlled conditions and give you more koi? If so, then you’ll want to get a healthy mix of males and females. For example, if you have six koi, make it an even split. Too few females and too many males will result in not only an extremely poor chance of breeding, but also lead to damage to the female.
Some might worry and choose not to use pond dye products as it may threaten the lives of the fish and the people that will apply them. Fortunately, pond dyes are safe and they affect neither the lives nor colors of all the water creatures in the pond. Most pond dyes available in the market are non-toxic to humans. That is, if applied with accordance to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Even the rush to end-of-year sales triggers its spikes. However harmless they appear to our ego-persona, all add negative blots to our energy field – to the general karma that we actually need to edit out of our energy field.
The main disadvantage of a solar powered garden fountain is its dependence on the sun. Most pumps will still work on a slightly cloudy day, but if it is really overcast the flow of water will be much less. And, of course, your fountain won’t work at night.
