Why are trace minerals important to my lake or pond?
They improve the overall health & vitality of the beneficial bacteria that consume excess nutrients and clean the pond water. Read more in our blog: Why are trace minerals important to my lake or pond?

Where can I learn more about good pond management practices?
We recommend "The Efficient Pond Management Handbook" by Ryan McCaw.

This handbook is designed to give the average pond owner the knowledge and skills needed to manage the pond.

We like this book because it stresses a natural approach to pond management and a philosophy of solving the underlying problem rather than chasing symptoms.

Check with your local book seller or visit Amazon.com (http://amzn.com/148417691X).
