Pond protection 3/3:


Contrary to popular belief, rainwater can be quite harmful for your pond as the quality of rainwater can differ depending on the region and season.

  • Rainwater can be very acid and harm animals and plants in the pond and also endanger the ecological balance.
  • In summer, rainwater also carries large quantities of pollen, this leads to an increased supply of nutrients in the pond and fuels the growth of unwanted algae.
  • If you want to fill your pond with rainwater from a rainwater barrel or your gutter, you will risk introducing harmful substances, either from traffic pollution or debris from gutters, into your pond.
  • The best water supply is tap water and, combined with a basic care agent and a perfectly coordinated pump and filter system, you will have long-lasting pleasure and a healthy pond.
