Aeration/Circulation FAQ

Pond Cleaning Logs (Polyacrylamide)

Q. Will Eco Pond Rescue Pond Cleaning Logs treatment harm turf?
A. No. Once the polymer binds (floc) to the nutrients, the floc will sink and remain in the silt.

Q. Is Eco Pond Rescue treatment safe for fish?
A. Yes. All the Pond Cleaning Logs meet ANSI/NSF Standard 60 Drinking Water Treatment Chemical Additive
classification. Extensive toxicity testing has been conducted on each type of Pond Cleaning Log, following
EPA test protocol and ASTM guidelines, to ensure they are non-toxic and safe to use anywhere.

Q. What the heck is a polyacrylamide (PAM)?
A.Polyacrylamide or PAM is a large family of chemicals based on chains of acrylamide units.
Depending on their exact make-up, these polymers can be anionic (negatively charged), cationic
(positively charged) or neutral. There are hundreds of different types of PAMs used for a wide
variety of purposes in many industries including agriculture, water treatment, and paper-making.

Q. How does Eco Pond Rescue clarify water?
A.The Pond Cleaning Logs can also remove dissolved metals, phosphorous, nutrients and algae from the
water column. They can decrease harmful algae blooms and bacteria by removing the clay
particles that provide the surfaces they attach to and grow on. The Pond Cleaning Logs can bind
phosphorous and limit its availability to plants, helping reduce the growth of water weeds.

Q. Will Eco Pond Rescue eliminate existing algae?
A. No. Except that by binding the nutrients the algae "starve" and are limited in growth.

Q. Is the Eco Pond Rescue program compatible with algaecides or pesticides?
A. Yes. However it is our belief that continual spraying will cause a myriad of water quality problems. It becomes quite expensive as well.

Q. How is Eco Pond Rescue used?
A. Eco Pond Rescue is a pond management program, not a one time, quick-fix chemical addition. As such, it requires initial preparation and continued attention in order to provide optimum results.

Q. Does Eco Pond Rescue provide spraying services?
A. Yes. When necessary, we spray for nuisance aquatic weeds as part of our overall program. All herbicides and algaecides meet EPA guidelines and are approved for aquatic use.

Aeration / Circulation L.I.P.V.A.C.S

Q. Does the pump need to run 24 hours a day?
A. Yes. All aeration and diffuser systems recommend they run 24/7/365. Of course based on your geography, condition of your water body, available resources and history you might opt to run it less. With real experience you should be able to determine a running schedule.

Q. Is the pump noisy?
A. No. It is less than 15 decibels with the lid open which is the volume of a normal conversation.

Q. Does the pump go in the water?
A. No. This is an enclosed out of water pump. It comes in a weather proof box or decorative rock cover. We recommend it is as close to the water as allowable and safe. You want to try to keep it above any flood mark and secured so it will not be moved accidentally.

Q. What do I have to assemble?
A.The Do It Yourself Kit comes with everything except several lengths of pipe. We give you a shopping list that you can fill at any home improvement store such as Home Depot or Lowes. You will use the easy to follow directions and glue the pipe in place. Then when it is time, you place the pipe in the water, connect to the pump turn it on. If you take your time, read the instructions and have a friend or two help, it should only take 1 or 2 hours. Of course if you get stuck, our support staff is available to help via phone. We also have an installation service available.

Q. Why is this better than a diffuser (bubbler)?
A. Based on your situation and depth of lake is what makes this a better system. If using 2/3 less electricity and the purchase cost is not enough here are several reasons. The only moving part is the pump, which has a one year warranty, there is no maintenance of the pipe or venturi. Diffusers need to have the pump housing rebuilt and the diffusers must be taken out of the water and cleaned
every year. Based on the depth of your water body and the amount of air hose necessary to place the diffusers, actual measurement of aeration and circulation is difficult if not impossible. The Eco Pond Rescue L.I.P.V.A.C.S has a consistent,. measured discharge rate and and equally measured air intake rate. You can actually see the water and air move. We sell the test equipment if you want to continually monitor your system.

Q. Aren't there other types of systems besides diffusers?
A. Yes. There are many different kinds. The diffusers are the most common, along with surface aerators and fountains. For the cost of equipment and the cost of operation, nothing beats an Eco Pond Rescue L.I.P.V.A.C.S

Q. What does L.I.P.V.A.C.S mean?
A. Low Interior Pressure Venturi Aeration Circulation System. This is the patent pending name of the device that utilizes a venturi system designed to operate on high volume but low pressure. This allows the pump to operate at a very high efficiency resulting in lower electrical costs.
