Pollen Is Not Just Bad For Allergies!

May 11, 2023 // By Scott Brown

Pollen can be bad for ponds because it can contribute to the growth of algae. When pollen falls into a pond, it decomposes and releases nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus into the water. These nutrients may act as a fertilizer for algae, which can quickly grow out of control and lead to an algae bloom.

Pollen can also clog pond filters and pumps, reducing their efficiency and causing water quality issues.

There are two solutions we recommend:

1) Removing debris, leaves, and other organic matter regularly.

2) Adding beneficial bacteria weekly to your pond can help break down organic matter and reduce the risk of algae blooms.
