• Privately Owned Water Bodies

One of our favourite pastimes is to drop a line in our ½ acre pond at the end of a work day. That tiny, wonderfully healthy pond is stocked with almost 300 hundred fighting rainbow trout, which is a great way to spend a summer evening. It may have even ruined fishing for our kids, as even the 8 year old can pull out a fish about every 15 minutes or so. On the really hot days we jump off the dock into the sparkling blue and enjoy each moment.

Here’s a not-so-secret piece of info about our team at Algae Control Canada, we love sharing every piece of knowledge we have about building a great private pond with our customers. It give us real satisfaction to share and contribute to fantastic private water experiences for our customers.

Why have a private pond?

Joy. Peace. Contentment. Or even property value. A well-managed private pond is a source of continual lifestyle benefits for landowners who love nothing more than the chance to truly enjoy a unique part of their property, whenever they want to.

How do I get started?

It’s easier than you think. We’ll help you develop your private water dream no matter what point you are starting at. From digging the hole to expanding a ranchlands dugout, or remediating an existing, yet underperforming, natural body of water on private land we’ve worked with landowners across Canada to realize their personal dreams and expectations of owning a pond. We’re committed to staying within your budget and clearly explaining your options when it comes to achieving a robust pond ecosystem, with or without fish stocking.

I have an “underperforming” body of water on my property, what next?

Start by by giving us a call or send an email and let us know you have a private pond. We’ll do a basic exploration of your situation by asking questions about location, size, environmental influences and what you would like to see achieved in your pond. We’ll answer your initial questions, and move forward in a way that makes sense for your situation.


Underwater Aeration


The single best thing you can do for the health of your lake or pond. Adding oxygen to your pond, lake or reservoir with bottom diffused aeration can make all the difference.




Nutrient loading is something water managers are very familiar with. The addition of specially cultivated beneficial bacteria and select enzymes can have a big impact on water quality.


Ultra Sonic Before After


Ultrasonic technology that controls algae in lakes and ponds, water treatment facilities, tailings ponds, stormwater reservoirs, and even irrigation ponds and pools. Plus, it lowers pH and TSS!


HAB Barge


Blue-green algae problems? Other algae blooms? Best Management Practices not helping? You may have a phosphorus problem. Identifying the problem,and intercepting or inactivating the phosphorus could be key to solving your problem.
