When should we use an Ultraviolet light?
An ultraviolet light is good for ridding a pond of pea-soup algae. It is very important to have a properly sized light because if the exposure time is too small, the system will not be very effective. The size of the UV light is based on how much water passes through it.
We like Emperor Aquatic lights because they have a long life. Many other lights are rated at peak (new) performance rather than at 60% lamp strength.U/V lights will not work with string algae since it does not pass through it.
Older established ponds can have excessive amounts of decaying organic material that release toxic gases. These gases are detrimental to the health of your pond and fish by depleting the oxygen level in the water. These gases also produce an environment of oxygen starved water that insects and algae can thrive in. These gases can also be a problem during the winter as your pond freezes over the gases become trapped under the ice, therefore starving the water of oxygen.
I have pond in my backyard from last two month. Here I found very useful information. I like this...!Post a Comment
