Healthy Ponds Large Pond Cleaner - 250,000 Gallon Treatment, Model# 10199
Holy cow, this works!
Holy cow, this stuff works!! Our trout have never been happier and our pond is absolutely crystal clear. We can't get over how beautiful it looks. We've tried many things over the years and this is the only product that works like a charm and doesn't stess out the fish. The trick, start early. We live in PA and tossed the first ball by late April. If you have algae, you need to try this stuff! It's worth every cent.

Healthy Ponds - 250,000 gal treatment
We purchased three - thinking we would send back the other two if we saw no improvement with one. Placed it at one end of the pond and by the next weekend it was noticeably clearer. We put the other two in! Since our pond is closer to 1,000,000 we purchasing the larger one this time and plan to put it in the middle. Thanks for the great product.

Worked like a charm
The filamentous algae was really bad this year, so I tried this pond cleaner. Within 3 weeks, I'd guess 90% of the algae is gone. Overall water clarity has improved substantially as well. No harm to any fish that I can see. Buying another one for next month!

started using this product for a smaller pond that also utilizes the water for park sprinklers. other products were used up as pond drained for each watering whereas this product was time released so pond was replentished after each watering. pond is clearing so seems to be working well. safe for fish and other animals as dogs frequently swim in pond. will recommend product to others in area.

Healthy Pond Cleaner
Bought 4 of the 250,000 Gal. treatment, used as instrusted 1 per month and placed them above one of my arieators for best distribution. Have spent alot of money over the years these seem to work the BEST, they controled at least 80% of my problem. Will order again in the spring.I think by placing above one of my arieators
helped spread the contents around. Very satisfied.

I had a pond built about 5 years agao. We really enjoyed it, but by July we were getting a lot of scuvy residue on and in the pond. This year I tryed the Pond cleaner and was amazed as to how clear the pond became. I change it once a month and the pond is clear as can be. I stock trout and have had no problems. I reccomended it to my father-in-law and he had the same results.

I've been using this pond cleaner for nearly six months, but not changing the ball as often as recommended, so my results are probably not as good as others. But it definitely works as advertised, no doubt about it. After two weeks the pond was noticeably clearer, and continued use has at least maintained, if not improved, the water clarity. And judging by the number of fish and fry I see, it has no effect on any critters.
When I replace the ball, I attach the string from the previous one to the new string (supplied), so I can swing it farther out into the pond. But otherwise, no special instructions: toss it in, it sinks, tie the string to something, that's it.

I have put three balls in my 1/4 acre pond. I put two in at the same time to make sure I had enough coverage for the size pond I have. There has been no noticeable change in the algae growing in the pond. It is possible that the pond was already too much for the pond balls to clean up. I would only suggest that the pond cleaner balls be used in ponds that have only a minimum of and algae problem. Although the balls did not work on my particular pond I would suggest that you try them early in the year , perhaps May, before the algae has time to start growing. I am still going to use Northern tools for my needs for I have purchased other products that were very much to my satifaction. And next year I will try again with the pond cleaner ball, but will do so early in the year.

I have a large pond that has always had an algae problem. I have ordered this pond cleaner the last 2 years and have had no algae at all. Great product and usual good service from Northern Tools.

Healthy Ponds Cleaner - 1/4 acre
This is a wonderful product that I have been using for 2 years. It prevents algae formation and makes the water clear. I use it monthly and started earlier this year, (the beginning of May), which I recommend.
