Algae can be a big problem for any body of water, but it doesn’t have to be. Through proper water testing and treatment methods, the team at Sorko can figure out what’s going on in your pond or lake and help you get things back on track.
Sorko helps you deal with algae in a way that’s easy, efficient and effective. Here’s how the process works:
- After a visual inspection of your water, we treat any present algae using the most effective methods in the industry
- From there, we work with you to create a water maintenance plan that suits your needs and budget
Algae isn’t just an eyesore for a lake or pond; it can also have quite the effect on the ecosystem. Algae affects numerous different aspects of a body of water, but one of the biggest problems comes when the algae bloom dies and is left to decay in the water. As this process takes place, oxygen levels in the water will drop, which can cause a significant amount of stress—or in some cases, death—to the wildlife living in that body of water.
Removing algae can be a tricky process, but it’s worth it if you want to keep your lake or pond in good health and looking great. There are a few different steps we take to remedy algae problems in water. The first step is to remove any existing dead algae from the pond or lake as this can reduce oxygen levels in the water; this includes algae that may grow on the bottom of the body of water.
Next comes the actual treatment process which typically involves one of two methods: using dyes to provide shade to the bottom-growing algae or using a product to treat the muck and clear your pond up. There are also bacteria you can add to help keep your pond or lake clearer.
