Dyes will give you a great looking pond. More importantly, they are formulated to block UV rays. This inhibits the growth of algae and vegetation by reducing the light available for photosynthesis. An added bonus is the dyes also protect your fish from the eyes of airborne predators like blue heron and cormorants.
An algaecide can kill algae but the effect can often be short lived and can even aggravate algae problems. The algae killed by an algaecide accumulate on the pond bottom and provide more nutrients to future algae blooms. Without proper aeration and beneficial bacteria the use of algaecides can end up being a vicious cycle.
We generally only recommend algaecides for spot treatment of algae in water bodies that have sufficient aeration and are being treated with the appropriate bioaugmentation.
Mechanical Weed Removal
The Weed Razer:
Remove your Lake weeds or Pond Weeds in just Minutes with the Weed Razer®. The Weed Razer is a unique V shaped lake weed cutter with razor sharp blades designed to be the most efficient and effective lake weed cutting tool made. This weed cutter will cut or shear almost any type of rooted aquatic vegetation like milfoil, lily pads, pond weed and even cattails. Razor sharp blades can shear through water and lake weeds with ease, and can also cut cattails.
The Weed Razer clears a path 48″ (4 feet) wide each throw. Weighing in at just 8 pounds it is light enough to toss 30 feet or more yet heavy enough to sink to the bottom.
The Weed Razer:
- Is able to cut in deep or shallow water
- Cuts at the base of the weeds
- Has little resistance because it slices the water weeds rather than dragging them
Once you cut or shear the lake or pond weed, we recommend that you remove the cut vegetation from the water. Decaying vegetation will provide nutrients that can stimulate new vegetation growth and algae blooms.
The Weed Raker is the longest, widest, and deepest digging lake rake in the industry specifically designed to be very effective at removing lake and pond water weeds and debris floating on the surface of the water. The Weed Raker is also designed to dig and pull the stems and roots of your lake and pond weeds slowing or eliminating their re-growth. This rake is ideal for removing the organic matter at the bottom of your lake which fuels the re-growth of more water weeds, aquatic vegetation!
The Weed Raker is also a great tool for the removal of free floating weeds like water hyacinth, bladderwort, salvinia, water lettuce, etc.
Weighing less than 7 lbs, it is light enough to toss 55 feet away. The rake head is hollow and can be filled with floating material to make it float, or with gravel or other weighted material to make it dig deeper.
With the Weed Raker you can:
- Keep your beach front free from floating water weeds and debris
- Collect large mats of floating debris with the super sized rake head
- Clean your beach, root up weeds and remove muck
- Keep your lake bottom weed free and harvest your cut weeds
- Remove decaying organic matter from your lake and pond bottom
- Weigh the hollow rake head down to dig deep in the bottom
- Pull weeds in from 55 feet away

Kasco™ Surface Aerators dramatically agitate high volumes of water at the surface, maximizing air and water exposure to create valuable gas exchange. Typical applications include:
- Commercial aquaculture
- Agricultural ponds
- Industrial plants
- Municipal waste water ponds
- Backyard ponds
No one has more experience in de-icing than Kasco™; Kasco™ invented surface aeration. Originally developed to allow in-water boat storage in areas subject to freezing, the de-icer is now used in a multitude of applications.
De-icers push the warm, bottom water to the surface to prevent or eliminate ice formation. This creates an ice-free area of protection around your boat, dock, pier, or other in-water property during freezing temperatures. Providing this ice-free zone will successfully prevent damage from ice jacking and expansion. De-icers can also help protect fish and aquatic species, by allowing for open areas where oxygen can enter the water.
Don’t think of a de-icer as a product just for northern climates or winter use. These high performance motors that create large amounts of water flow for winter de-icing can also be used to provide year-round benefits. Water circulation from a de-icer will help eliminate foul odors and stagnant water areas and may help deter floating plant growth. This water flow is also an easy and effective way to prevent floating debris and trash from entering marinas or collecting around boats and dock. By strategically placing de-icers on dock mounts or horizontal floats, water flow can be directed to push debris to areas where it is easy to remove or even prevent it from entering the area altogether.
Clean, healthy water is more attractive, safer for you, your boat and property, and is a benefit to the aquatic life sharing the water space. Save time, money, and effort by using Kasco’s De-Icers year-round for improved health and beauty of your water.
