A clean and clear retention pond is key to an enjoyable outdoor space. Murky water is not only unattractive but can also be an indicator of dangerous toxic algae and water bacteria. The best way to prevent these things is proper and regular water maintenance.
If your retention pond already has issues with murky water the best option is to use a natural, non-toxic clarification process administered by an expert. Organic lake clarification systems are also a good option because they cause little to no damage to the healthy bacteria in your retention pond water.
