Enhanced Pricing for Mizzen® Algaecide and Sapphire Bay® Blue Pond Dye

June 10, 2015

We are introducing new pricing for our Mizzen® Algaecide and Sapphire Bay® Blue Pond Dye.  The new pricing will allow home and business owners to keep ahead of the scum levels and add a pleasing blue color to their pond, lake or water feature while getting a better value.

A Gallon of Mizzen® covers approximately half an acre for $31.00.  It is also available with special bulk pricing as low as $25.95 per gallon. Mizzen® is a copper based algaecide that attacks filamentous and planktonic algae on contact.  The algae will die within hours of being treated. With summer fast approaching, algal blooms can occur as frequently as every 10-14 days.  By keeping  a copper based algaecide on hand, you will be able to keep your scum levels under control and help prevent toxic algae from forming.

Sapphire Bay® Blue Pond Dye will add a natural looking color to your ponds or fountain and may be applied monthly for year-long beauty. Each gallon covers one acre and is available with special gallon pricing for $21.00 each gallon.  Aquatic dyes are non-toxic and may be used in ponds that are used for swimming or that contain fish.  Application is as easy as pouring the dye into the water.  Within a few hours, the dye will quickly spread throughout the pond, lake, or water feature.

“We are happy to offer Mizzen® and Sapphire Bay® in a variety of sizes while offering a special gallon rate,” says Mary Jo Furman, Retail Sales Supervisor at Lake Restoration. “We want consumers to be able to keep their ponds beautiful all season long with minimal effort.”  For those that may have a small backyard pond or water feature, Mizzen® and Sapphire Bay® are available in pints, quarts and half gallon sizes.  Mizzen® and Sapphire Bay® are both manufactured by Lake Restoration, Inc. in Rogers, MN.

 

In addition to the bulk pricing, home owners can work with our Lake Restoration experts to custom a complete pond kit that will enhance the overall health and appearance of your pond. Both Mizzen® algaecide and Sapphire Bay®blue pond dye are included in the PONDRestore® kits, a complete pond kit that controls floating and submerged weeds, eliminates algae, reduces phosphorus and restores your pond’s health.

Is your pond ready for Spring?

June 1, 2015

The birds are chirping, the snow is finally melting and the temperatures are rising.  Your pond is starting to wake up because spring is finally here!  Do you need to clean your pond out?  The best time for pond management is in the spring time before the water temperature creeps above 55°F.  In April the water temperature is normally lower at this time and the weeds have not started to grow yet.

Clean out debris---You want to get as many leaves and twigs out of your pond.  Using a skimmer or large net will be helpful for cleaning out large materials or particles that have not settled to the bottom of the pond over the fall and winter.

Inspect your equipment --- Did something get damaged over the fall/winter months?   If you have a fountain, aerator, or pond pump…now would be a good time to inspect them and clean them out thoroughly.  Replace any broken parts before you put them back in the pond.

Take a walk---Walk around the pond area and remove solid waste (by hand), re-arrange rocks that may have fallen over the winter months.  Keep the edge of your pond tidy, this will make a perfect habitat for frogs.

Get ahead of the weeds with a pond treatment---We recommend using our PONDRestore® Kit to stop the weeds before they start growing and to establish a balance with the good bacteria that is in your pond.  

Fluridone will control floating plants (like duckweed) and nearly all submerged pond weed varieties.  It is going to stay suspended longing in the water giving you more control.  It will help stop the weeds before they appear.

Our SparKlear® pellets are going to reduce the nutrients that enable weed and algae growth and promote the health of your pond.  PhosControl® will help clarify the water and reduce the phosphorus levels.  Phosphorus is the main source of food for algae, and algae cannot survive without phosphorus. 

As the temperatures start to rise, algae blooms can appear every 2-3 weeks.  Mizzen® is a copper based pond algaecide that easily controls filamentous algae and is user friendly.

Using a pond dye like Sapphire Bay® will not only leave your pond a pleasing blue color, but it will also block out specific light rays to deter weed and algae growth.

With a little work and some patience, your pond will be ready for the summer months ahead.  Rejuvenate your pond with a Spring Clean and our PONDRestore® Kit.
