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.
