A combination of fast acting ultra-concentrated liquid & slow release powdered bacteria
to reduce algae in lakes and ponds
Terraqua ES offer a ready to use Algae Control solution of Long Life Micro-organisms (LLMO) for lakes and ponds or small water bodies up to 5 acres. We provide safe, environmentally friendly algae management solutions for water quality problems, based on bio-augmentation which adds safe, naturally occurring bacteria to water to reduce pollution and restore lakes and ponds to their natural balance. For these small lakes and ponds we supply a combination of products called StartSmart and EcoSocks.
Common algae descriptions include Green Water / Blue Green Water / Blanket Weed and Pond Scum: These all produce unattractive green looking lakes and ponds.
Cyanobacteria: Also known as blue-green algae, blue-green bacteria, and Cyanophyta) is a phylum of bacteria that obtain their energy through photosynthesis.
Filamentous Algae: Single algae cells that form long visible chains, threads, or filaments. These filaments intertwine forming a mat that often resembles wet wool. Filamentous algae starts growing along the bottom in shallow water or attached to structures in the water (like rocks or plants). Often filamentous algae float to the surface forming large mats, which are commonly referred to as pond scums.
Cladophora glomerata: Blanket Weed.
StartSmart and EcoSocks solve green water problems in a safe and environmentally friendly to control algae way using natural bacteria that attack the underlying causes of algae and transform ugly lakes and ponds into clear water.
See case studies showing Algae reduction and the transformation from ugly to clear water.

A ready to use liquid, an all-purpose biological lake additive designed for lakes and ponds from ¼ acre to 5 Acres. StartSmart is super- concentrate, with an ideal mix of bacteria that out compete algae for nutrients.
Size: 4 litre containers.
Powdered bacteria and nutrients, with a self-contained oxygen source, when placed into the water, the EcoSock continuously produce algae fighting bacteria for a full month, after one month, the EcoSock is removed, discarded as standard waste and replaced with a fresh EcoSock.
Size: 700 g Bags.
When using a combination of StartSmart & EcoSock dosing is performed only once a month, for a minimum of a 3 month period. Dosing quantities will depend on the size of the watercourse to be treated.
We are more than willing to visit your reservoir, lake or pond and advise on the correct method of treatment for your algae / weed problem. If you have suffered algae blooms or major weed problems in the past and done nothing about it, it is likely to return the following year. We can recommend a treatment based on the size, intake and scale of pollution within your watercourse.
Filamentous algae (Green Water) are characterised by their ability to form floating mats and to adhere to submerged structures. Commonly encountered species are Cladophora glomerata (Blanket Weed), Vaucheria dichotoma (Cott), Enteromorpha, Spirogyra and Rhizoclonium species. These types of algae often reach nuisance proportions in ponds, lakes and streams and cause problems in newly dug ponds and ditches. Whilst Blooms of hazardous cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) in reservoirs, stock waters and lakes can cause problems for both animal and human health.
