Algae growth depends on many factors including daylight hours, temperature, location and nutrient loading. Every pond has its own unique identity.  Our goal is to find the targeted treatment rate that is both effective and affordable. We have nearly 100% success on filamentous, stringy algae as long as enough Advanced BioTech are consistently used and treatments are done correctly.  Our clients who are willing to invest the money to have a nice pond, lake or water feature are extremely pleased with the results of our safe and natural treatment products.

Once the ecosystem comes into balance, annual product costs are usually less in subsequent years. There are residual and cumulative effects in BioWorld treated water.

BioWorld Algae Treatment application rates are based on surface area or dimensions, algae type, and severity of the algae. Simply adjust the amount of BioWorld (higher or lower) as algae growth dictates. Repeat treatments weekly during the algae bloom season. When the algae is under control, both the amount and frequency of treatments can be decreased.

Cost Outline Examples

A clean, healthy, beautiful water feature comes at a cost. If you are in a position to invest what is required, then the BioWorld Algae Treatment Method is the right choice for you.

During the algae bloom season in your area, we recommend treating a pond, lake, or irrigation system with BioWorld Algae Treatment on a weekly basis. Begin treatments at the first sign of green filamentous algae growth.

General application is 2 units  per surface acre per week equating to(2 gallons Liquid Optimizer and 2 x ½ lb units Algae Microbes).

Treatments should be repeated for at least 4 – 6 weeks. When the algae is under control, both the rates and frequency of treatments can be decreased.

100% Success when adequate amounts are properly applied!

Treatment costs depend on several factors such as:

  • Daylight hours
  • Water pH
  • Nutrient loading
  • Temperature
  • Algae type
  • Severity of algae
  • Prior algaecides used
  • Surface area or dimensions
  • Geographic location

BioWorld will provide a targeted treatment rate based on these factors and suggests adjustments accordingly.

NOTE: There is economy of scale based on size of the water feature. As surface area size increases, that quantity of the BioWorld Formulation is lessened.

Reason – An 80 acre lake is very different than a small ¼ acre pond. Depths and temperature fluctuations dictate the algae growth pattern of algae.
