We had great success with the farm pond treatment kit. After many failed attempts and multiple chemical treatments, and hundreds of dollars, we decided to give TLC farm pond treatment a try. We saw results in approximately 5-6 days. We only treated our pond once last year. It could have used probably 1-2 more treatments for the whole season but our original vendor was always out. Nice to see we can order straight from the company.

I did 3 months of treatments to 100% clean my pond. I can see my fish are liking it as well. Thank you TLC Products!

My third year using Farm Pond treatment. Starting to see bottom of pond and smell has been gone for a while.

Great product, my farm pond is on its way to being cleared of algae and decaying leave matter. I also use it on my Koi pond with outstanding results!!

Great products. Pond perfect is just that.

I have been using the Freshwater StartSmart Complete for 5 years now. It is hands down the best cycling product available. I am going to try the instant cycle next and use the complete for maintenance during large water changes.

In the forty years we have been producing oranges and mandarins, we have refined our process to grow the best quality citrus fruit possible. Having said that, when we used ACF-SF and ACF-SF+ we realized a significant increase in crop yield of 30%, while also increasing the percentage of fruit that was US#1 Quality in terms of appearance, homogeneity in size, and general health - no blemishes. Overall, this was the single best harvest we have ever seen, and the only difference was using ACF-SF.

Works very well at keeping my 1200 gallon pond relatively clear, even with messy turtles!

Been using Pond Perfect with Eco Sock for our 3000 gallon water feature for 1-1/2 seasons with excellent results. Provides excellent clarity and a healthy environment for fish, frogs and plants.

This was the first spring/summer we used TLC Products, and we can see all nine koi fish now. Kids are excited to see the bottom this year.
- Bill Higgins, Hampton, NJ
LOVE this! We've used this in all of our tanks (12 that we currently have freshwater, also love their saltwater formula!) and it has worked famously every time! No complaints only praise for this amazing product! It's saved us a lot of money when it comes to throw fear of loosing fish when cycling!

Works like a dream to clear the pond water of suspended particles and algae. String algae may still form on the rocks out of the pond (in the waterfall), but can be removed with a power washer or hose spray if it gets too thick (I did not add to the pond every week since the water was so clear -- if I had, it may have controlled the rock algae even better). Great all in one product.

Good product, great job.

I have used this product before. Works really well in my Koi pond and people often ask how I keep my water so clear.
- Amazon Customer agwfmg
Works very well, priced right, shipped on time, damage free, will buy again.
- Amazon Customer afskhh
Works great in my small pond (approx. 600 gallons and 4 fish).

I got this because of sludge in biological filter. Pond Perfect aids in keeping water clear in Florida. Algae forms quickly and this product aids in eliminating pond waste quickly. Satisfied with product.

I have managed my pond for 6 years now had inherited a known clarity and muck problem. There are many products on the market and they are mostly quite pricey. This product mixes effectiveness at a cost that doesn't hurt as much as the others out there. With these products, you have to use them over time. They are not a one time or one bottle fix. I noticed the gas release in the first week of use and knew it was eating at the muck. Water clarity takes time and it depends on how bad your pond is. I'm 12 boxes into treatment and not disappointed. I will treat all through this warm season, at 4 boxes a month. If you aren't using is for 90 days or more, and dosed it properly, you probably aren't going to get the results you are hoping for. I 4 stared this because I always want things to cost less and not have to take time to work. I also understand the things that are out there that are more aggressive to use, I don't want to spend that money on and worry about their other effects on my pond.

First, let me say I'm not a marine biologist, chemical engineer, own stock or an employee of PondPerfect. Hell, I didn't even take high school chemistry. But, I have had a few ponds and I've owned a couple of saltwater tanks so I did get an on the job crash training on man made artificial environments. I usually don't write reviews but I read a lot of them before I purchase so I felt I should start helping others if I can.
I read several reviews where there was catastrophic results in using this product and one who said, " the product was cloudy". The cloudiness is due to being live enzymes in the product and that's how it works. I always shake mine to get a good suspension before measuring for usage. Seems to work well for me.
I've been using this product for several months now to help control hair algae, green/ dark cloudiness of water, and the nasty swamp odor. The product works very well. No, the hair algae is not eradicated but it is much more manageable. The clarity of the water is wonderful! I can see all the way to the bottom of the 4' depth. There is no longer any swampy odor at all. I do use this product every week for my 7,000 gal pond.
Now, my very limited experience with atrifical water environments, through word of mouth, reading documents and tri and error, has taught me that any changes must be gradual. As I'm sure your aware, when you introduce new fish to your aquatic home, it should be done gradually. Well, when you change your established enviornment with marine l life that has been living there for some time, it needs to be done gradually. Any drastic, instant change is going to shock the whole living environment and kill most things. Maybe it's my location, filtration, water turn over rate, size of pond, my daily fussing with the system, the type and amount of fish and plants I have, the alignment of the stars or something I did right in a previous life but the produce works very well for me.
Get advise from local specialist in your area if you have one. Take a water sample to get it tested. Read several articles, not just one, from experts that work or practice, (notice that is just like the human medical field, "practice", because no one still knows what's going on with God's creation), in your area or similar climate before you jump in and make drastic changes.
I hope this was helpful to someone.

It really works; I was surprised I've been using it every week for about a year. I have clear water, healthy plants and HAPPY FISH !! I will continue to use it. I would recommend. :)

We had not used PondPerfect 30010 Multi Purpose BiologicalPond Treatment 32oz. and it did as described on the info on the bottle. We did have to use it more than once as out pond is the size of a standard swimming pool. An average 500 gallon to 1000 gallon pond would use one bottle. Our water became clear, and smelled as it should in no time when we followed the instructions.

The best pond cleaning product I have used. I use it in conjunction with Algae Off. Those are the only two cleaning products I need. The combination keeps the pond ingood shape.
- S. Cox
I'm pretty sure I've posted a review on this before. This stuff just plain works. Use it in your outdoor pond during the warm months. Don't feed your fish and keep a lot of filtering plants in the water and your pond will stay clean the entire season.
- Chris Mayhew
Recommended by my pond care expert for weekly use to clear the pond of debris. This is the only pond treatment I use.

I have what started out to be a smaller lined 'decorative' pond but ended up being 40'x60', average depth of 4', and approx. 20,000 gal. I am in my 3rd full summer and have used nothing but Pond Perfect. ONLY because this was the only one I found I could afford for my size pond! Most every treatment out there is for the small ponds (500-1000 gal.) And yes, would love to be able to buy 1 gallon of the pricier stuff and have it last me April-October like so many can but found Pond Perfect not only isn't killing me financially but if it didn't work my pond would have to be in a horrible state by now. It's clean, clear, no odor, no algae problems (as of yet), muck stays at a minimum (I do work hard keeping leaves/pine needles out being we are in middle of woods) and no fish loss ever and we swim in it all the time. Hope this post maybe helps just one person with a larger lined pond like me. Just remember, if you already have a problem you need to apply more than the maintenance dosage before seeing results as with any treatment!
