Q: How do I get debris or algae off of my water garden’s rocks, streams and waterfalls? – Several Customers
A: As the Summer progresses, the weather gets hotter and algae begins to grow on your streams, waterfalls and rocks. Sometimes using AlgaeFix just isn’t enough to remove the algae from the rocks. It will kill the algae, but the algae stays stuck to the rocks. It seems sometimes you need a steel wool brush to scrub the algae off.
My suggestion, when you have debris of algae on rocks, is to use a product called Oxy-Lift. Oxy-Lift is designed to lift these debris off of rocks for easy removal.
Simply turn your pump off and sprinkle the affected areas with Oxy-Lift. Wait 10 minutes and turn your pump back on. You may need a hose to spray away the additional debris, but no more scrubbing! If you have a skimmer installed in your pond, it will catch the debris as they are washed in by the waterfall. Or you can skim it yourself with a skimmer net.
