Write the first review


A unique four way action pond pad which can be used to clear pond algae in all situations. Algae Pad works four times better than Barley Straw and clears most ponds in four days. Algae Pad offers environmental, biological, chemical and mechanical control on over 80% of all known algae species. Can be used directly in the pond or preferably in an external biological box filter. Algae Pad comes in one size and is very easy to use.

Algae Pads unique four way actions work by:-

Environmental Control
Algae Pad contains two inorganic buffers which help reduce and control the pH in garden ponds. A lowering of the pH will noticeably reduce the amount of Green Algae present. Environmental control is also achieved by removing nutrients from the water.

Biological Control
Algae Pad will trap nutrients from pond water. Enzymes will aid the breakdown of these nutrients and thus reduce algae growth. Natural extracts also help in the Biological breakdown of suspended algae species.

Chemical Control
TAP's four way Algae Pad is impregnated with a powerful Algicide which will slow release once the pad is wet. The Chemical agents are effective against 80% of all known algae species. Algae Pad will help control all Benthic algaes including Blanketweed and kill Green Water.

Mechanical Control
Place the Algae Pad in any chamber of an external biological filter. The open cell properties and uniform structure of the pad ensure Planktonic Algae are trapped. Green Water is thus removed from the pond.
