When it comes to landscape design, koi ponds are a popular type of water feature that can add a serene beauty to your yard. However, landscapers are often asked about algae growth and what to do about it. If you have a koi pond as part of your backyard landscaping near Westchester County and its water has become green, then watch this video to learn how to remove the algae.
Start by placing your filter medium into the vortex barrel, which will collect the algae as water runs through the system. This filter will probably fill up quickly, so monitor and clean it as needed. Also, install a UV bulb to burn off the algae as it flows through the system. Finally, consider replacing some of last season’s water with fresh water. Soon enough, your koi pond will return to being a beautiful feature of your landscape design.
