3 Ways to Remediate Your Summer Pond

The Weather Network has predicted that much of Canada, especially Ontario, will experience temperature swings from highs to low this summer. This means that it’s important to start treating NOW for algae growth and oxygenation to stay ahead of what may be to come.

We offer several many ways for you to treat and maintain a healthy pond, lake and eco-system all summer long! We’d like to highlight several methods for you to consider:

  • AquaSphere Pro– Toss the AquaSphere in your pond and forget about it! The sphere treats troubled ponds and prevents issues before they arise even in healthy ponds. Perfect for fountains, small ponds and water features. The naturally sourced bacteria in the sphere is 100% safe for people, pets, plants, fish, and amphibians. The patented slow release bacteria goes to work breaking down the excess organic material in the entire water column, cleaning and clarifying while reducing bottom sludge and muck. The AquaSphere goes to the bottom of your pond and starts to work immediately, treating pond problems where they start; from the bottom up! The AquaSphere provides 24/7 pond treatment for 30 full days. Once the treatment is expended the entire sphere will marine-degrade over time in the bottom of your pond. It’s important to continue treating until the first frost.

  • Air-O-Lator READY Fountains-   More than aesthetically pleasing, these fountains are designed to aerate bodies of water using eco-friendly, high-performance technology which conserves water while improving quality. Ideal for aesthetic fountain display, Font`n-Aire Ready floating fountains are furnished with 1 horsepower 230 volt, 1 phase Franklin Electric motors. Each motor has a maximum amperage of 9.8 amps.  Including a fountain or aerator in your water management plan is essential for any lake or pond. Fountains and aerators constantly move oxygen through water, maintaining a healthy ecosystem. We offer several types of nozzles to create a plume to your pleasing as well as lighting.  These fountains are the perfect addition to golf courses!

  • BioBoost- Sub Surface Aeration– This system maximizes oxygen transfer to the water, speeding remediation and breaking down more organic sediment. The BioBoost diffuser spreads a column of rising air bubbles out over an area 350% wider than traditional diffusers. The larger plume additionally creates a 300% stronger convective current which turns the water body over faster. The BioBoost structural material promotes the essential biomass that consumes the same nutrients that cause algae blooms. BioBoost grows a thick coating of “bio slime”, that works to break down the organic nutrients in the water column and degrading bottom sludge.BioBoost can be installed as a new system or easily retrofitted to any existing aeration system and we also offer solar energy panels that can run the three different sized systems that we offer.


We are proud to be the exclusive Canadian distributor of these cost effective, natural and safe products. Our satisfied clients have been enjoying our quality manufactured products and services with much satisfaction.  If you would like a pond consultation, or if you have any question regarding our products, sizing or assembly information please feel free to contact or call us!

BioBoost Aeration Diffuser



Time and time again, we have seen the effectivity and strength of the patented technology that the BioBoost Aeration Diffuser delivers.

  1. Unique Diffusing System

Its unique diffusing system spreads an area of rising air bubble columns out 350 % WIDER than it’s traditional counterparts and it’s larger plume creates 300% stronger convective currents which turn the body of water over much faster maximizing the bubble surface area and contact time through a unique labyrinth the diffusing chamber.

BioBoost slows the rising air bubble, holding them in the water column 600 times longer than a traditional diffuser while the ridged material inside creates a labyrinth of rolling air bubbles as they rise which break them into the smallest possible bubbles maximizing the surface area for gas exchange.

  1. Nurturing Beneficial Bacteria- Oxygen is the Element

BioBoost media becomes a nest for beneficial bacteria as it provides a structural space for it to proliferate. With this unlimited food source from the continuous circulation of water and increased oxygen flow, the microbes outcompete algae by starving it of its food source ( the organic pollutants in the water. The algae cycle is then stopped in its tracks and the need for any chemical applications are terminated.

BioBoost is the ONLY water diffusing system that combines both of these two powerful synergies!

  1. We also offer Solar Powered Aeration that can run your BioBoost Diffuser from as an aftermarket product or they can be installed at the time of your original set-up. These panels run as a direct drive to the controller module.


BioBoost is a newer player in the aeration market and was developed over a three-year time frame because they knew many bodies of water were plagued with diminished clarity, foul odour, and unsightly algae. It became our mission to develop a solution to work on restoring the health of water, in a natural, sustainable way. We enhanced oxygenation in the water and added a beneficial microbial component to the system.

During a recent customer installation, you can see how this is put to work when fish actually gather in a school and swim toward and around the water bubble columns. Fish and amphibians will thrive in this properly oxygenated environment with beneficial bacteria. Listen carefully to your pond or lake’s wildlife. If they are surrounded by algae, you’ll be able to take note and remedy the situation with BioBoost. 

This video below shows you what happens subsurface to pull it all together.

AquaSphere Pro Pond Treatment


AquaSphere Pro 100% Natural Pond Treatment

Large Water AquaSpherePRO is a Biodegradable 6-inch sphere designed with a higher concentration of bacteria to effectively AND naturally treat your large pond or lake. These all-natural cleaners introduce beneficial bacteria into your pond, help reduce excess nutrients and break down pond matter that leads to clouding.

AquaSphere Pro is a bacteria AND enzyme package constantly releasing new bacteria and enzymes 24/7 for 30 days for an increased bacteria count over the life of the AquaSphere.

The AquaSphere®PRO sinks to the bottom of your wate..where pond problems all start! It then goes to work to degrade the sludge layer (undecomposed organic material) by 4-6” annually as well as treat the entire water column from the bottom up.

Once the treatment is expended the entire sphere will marine-degrade over time in the bottom of your pond

We recommend placing AquaSpherePROs in multiple locations around your pond. For example:  if you have a 1,500,000 gallon pond, use one 1,000,000 gallon AquaSpherePRO and one 500,000 gallon AquaSpherePRO. This will produce better results than using just one 1,500,000-gallon AquaSpherePRO.

*Remember to add a new sphere to your pond every 30 days throughout the pond season (water temperatures 45 degrees and above).

All AquaSphere products are veterinarian-approved  and 100% safe for livestock, wildlife, plants, pets, fish, amphibians and people, keeping your water clean in an environmentally friendly way.

To calculate the size of your pond follow this formula:

  1. Calculate the total gallons in the pond or area to be treated.

( Length x Width x Depth x 7.5 = Total Gallons)

  1. Calculate the number of AquaSpheres required. A pond measuring 40 feet wide by 100 feet long and averaging 10 feet deep would contain 3,000,000 gallons and therefore require 3 x 1,000,000 gallon Spheres  (40 x 100 x 10 x 7.5)

We recommend starting treatment 3 weeks after the ice goes out. 

We offer three sizes of the  AquaSphere®PRO to accommodate your ponds or lakes. Check them out here: https://arbourdale.com/pond-and-lake-treatment
