Summer Pond Keeping Made Easy: Automated Treatments by Aquascape

Aquascape, Inc. offers simple solutions to keep ponds clean, clear, and healthy this summer. The Automatic Dosing System and IonGen™ System G2 both effectively tackle water quality and clarity issues without the hassle of manually applying treatments every week.

The Aquascape Automatic Dosing System applies a choice of specially formulated water treatments to water features. It eliminates guesswork by electronically dispensing water treatments with accuracy and consistency. There are four available treatment pouches for ponds: Maintain, Clean, Clear, and Protect. Each treatment is designed to tackle a wide variety of issues including cloudy water, bad odors, and decaying debris. Pond owners program the system based on their water feature’s size using the control panel. The Automatic Dosing System is also available for decorative fountains and offers two treatment pouch options: Prevent and Clean.

“Pond owners can run into an array of water quality issues during the summer. With the Automatic Dosing System, you can set it and forget it rather than manually adding treatments on a weekly basis,” says Dave Kelly, vice president of product development for Aquascape, Inc. “The system can be mounted vertically to a post or partially buried in the ground for a hassle-free installation.”

The Aquascape IonGen™ System G2 removes string algae and controls future growth without the use of traditional liquid chemicals. An energy-efficient control panel contains a microprocessor that sends signals to an ion-producing probe. The probe releases a calculated mixture of copper ions into flowing water to stop algae growth in its tracks. Installation is easy, and the system is safe for fish and plants while costing less than a dollar per month in electrical costs.
