High levels of phosphates can occur in ponds for a number of reasons including fertilizer runoff and an overpopulation of fish. Excess phosphate results in a number of problems. Ornamental ponds and irrigation lakes located on golf courses often encounter problems with high phosphates because of the runoff of phosphate fertilizers when it rains. The Super’s Choice line of pond care products offers our Natural Phosphate Binder to bind problem-causing phosphates and render them inactive. This non-chemical product is environmentally friendly and can also be used as an all-natural replacement for aluminum sulfate (ALUM). Our phosphate binder is ideal for golf course ponds and water features because it is a natural pond treatment that will not harm fish, irrigation water or turfgrass.

Phosphate Binder as an Alternative to Aluminum Sulfate in Ponds

Our non-chemical phosphate binder is an all-natural alternative to aluminum sulfate (ALUM) for controlling problem-causing phosphates in pond water. This product naturally binds to phosphates and renders them inactive. In addition, our Super’s Choice Natural Phosphate Binder adds 70 trace minerals to help stimulate and support the growth of beneficial pond bacteria, which promote the overall healthy pond environment.

There are a number of advantages of using our natural phosphate binder as a non-chemical alternative to aluminum sulfate in ponds and lakes on golf courses, resorts, and commercial or residential properties. The following are some of the main benefits of our Super’s Choice phosphate binder for ponds.

  • Phosphate binder works by binding to and controlling problem causing phosphates, which can be increased because of high levels of phosphate fertilizer runoff or fish waste in golf course ponds and other types of ornamental ponds or lakes.
  • Our non-chemical phosphate binder improves water quality and stimulates beneficial pond bacteria, by adding 70 beneficial trace minerals to pond water.
  • This product aids in naturally reducing increased levels of ammonia in ponds or lakes.
  • Phosphate binder for ponds causes some flocculation or settling of suspended mud and clay particles, which helps to enhance the overall water clarity in ponds and other water features.

How to Use Phosphate Binder In Ponds and Irrigation Lakes

Using our natural phosphate binder is simple. This product comes in an easy-to-open 55 lb paper bag. To apply our natural phosphate binder to your lake or pond, just follow our simple dosing instructions. For lakes or large ponds, apply 85 pounds, or approximately 1.5 bags, of phosphate binder per million gallons of water. This dosage can be applied every 2-4 weeks until desired phosphate levels are achieved. For best results, our phosphate binder powder should be pre-mixed with water and spray-applied over the surface of the pond.
