Why Lakes Need Monthly Services
Is a murky pond becoming an eyesore on your otherwise pristine golf course? Are you getting tired of looking at the algae-infested pond at your business park? How about the weed beds in your neighborhood lake ruining your weekend boating activities? Whatever the case may be, it’s no secret that many of our lakes and ponds are not in good shape. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do about it. Monthly checkups and treatments can make a huge difference for your lake—allowing you to enjoy it more often.
The Importance of Regular Aquatic Services
In Florida, it’s easy to tell which lakes are thriving and which are struggling—the signs are often obvious. Here are a few of the main problems which ponds and lakes regularly face.
Though these signs of an unhealthy lake or pond are easy to spot, solutions can seem hard to find. And, many people become discouraged after getting their lake serviced only for the issue to come back again in a few months. The pesky hydrilla you thought you eradicated return in the blink of an eye, and you might find no sign of the fish you had stocked a few months back.
That’s why regular, monthly checkups and treatments are a vital component of any aquatic management program. Most of the time, there’s no once-and-for-all solution to a lake’s problems. It requires patience and persistence, along with a varied treatment plan, to achieve and maintain a healthy body of water.
Types of Aquatic Management Services
Each lake and pond requires a unique treatment plan because each has a unique issue. Not every lake is murky for the same reason, and not every weed infestation can be eradicated in the same way. There are many different services your body of water might benefit from, including:
No one service will lead to long-term success on its own. A healthy lake requires a delicate balance of several factors including native plants, animals, oxygen, phosphorous, sunlight, bacteria, pH level, and more. An excess or deficiency in any of these areas could easily lead to some of the issues listed above. Monthly checkups are necessary to make sure the balance is just right and to prevent any emerging problem from escalating.
