Help - Birdbath/Fountain Water Cleaner

If I clean out my birdbath and completely empty it, will it still take 4-6 weeks to see results?

Yes. Each time you empty out the water, you are starting over with water treatment and maintaining an ecological balance.

Can I expect to see algae in my Birdbath or Fountain Cleaner once I begin using my Healthy Ponds dispenser?

It is very common to see a green organic bloom in your birdbath or fountain even after you've added one of our dispensers into a clean water environment. It typically takes 4 to 6 weeks for the bacteria to disperse throughout the water, balance the ecosystem and break down any excess nutrients needed for the water to become clearer. If you do develop algae on the sides, it will scrape off much easier than without using our product.

How long will it take before I will see results using my Birdbath or Fountain Cleaner?

Some people will see results in as little as 2 weeks. For most it's 4 to 6 weeks. Since this is an all-natural product, it takes time for the bacteria and enzymes to fully dispense into the water and begin to break down the excess nutrients that cause cloudy water. However, once the system becomes balanced, results are much more easily sustained.

Will my birdbath or fountain cleaner still work if it gets dried out?

No, the product will become useless if it dries out, as the bacteria will die. You will need to replace it immediately.
