  • Why it is Important to Control Algae Growth

    A combination of high temperatures, stagnant water and nutrient overload can result in excessive algae growth. These so-called algal blooms can lead to a depletion of oxygen in the water, release of toxins and taste and odor problems. Without treatment, the algae will grow more every year, resulting in an unbalanced ecosystem. Therefore, it is important to control algal blooms for a healthy ...
