If you are trying to weigh your options when it comes to pond algae control, you are in the right place. Most of the time the decision comes down to cost and ease of use. Here we will discuss the pros and cons of liquid algae control vs. the use of a UV-Sterilizer.
Depending on the size of your pond and the algae that you encounter, one solution may make more sense than another. Another option would be to implement both. Using a UV-Sterilizer as your main prevention measure, and only spending the money on additional treatment products when algae arise can be a great way to save costs as well.
