BarbaraJo B. – Koi Pond in the Hot Sonora Desert

“Desert living can be brutal but Nualgi helps with lessening the damage. They help you every step of the way. Thank you, Nualgi!!!

 

I am a VERY satisfied customer!” – BarbaraJo B.

Barbara owns a 2700gal koi pond at her home in the Sonora Desert, Arizona. Temperatures can rise above 120 degrees and under such extreme conditions algae reproduce very quickly, leaving Barbara with overwhelming seasonal problems primarily during the peak of the summer (July).

Looking for a natural solution to control her algae problem, Barbara decided to accompany her UV filters with a weekly dose of Nualgi Ponds. We are very pleased to receive her positive feedback as we follow her experiences on Facebook.

LATEST UPDATE: August 3, 2015 – 4 Months of dosing Nualgi

March 18, 2015 – Barbara Started Dosing Nualgi Ponds

“If this stuff works all summer in the 120+temperatures and brutal sun…i’ll be a customer for life.”

“I just got my first bottle of Nualgi so just treated my green 2700gal koi/goldfish pond. If this stuff works all summer in the 120+temperatures and brutal sun (there is green screen over most of the pond) of the Sonora Desert Outback, I will be a customer for life.. This is my “before” shot, just taken this afternoon before treatment.”

May 15, 2015 – After One Month of Dosing Nualgi Ponds

“The Sonora Desert sun is already bringing temperatures into the 100s so this is a vast improvement in about a month.”

“It has taken a few weeks, but in conjunction with UV filters, and an added screen roof, the water in my 2700gal koi pond is very clear. In the Arizona low desert, this is almost a miracle. Thank you, Nualgi. :)”

 

May 20, 2015 – Great Results Before the Worst of the Season

“My pond is looking great, and in this desert that is amazing.”

“My pond is looking great, and in this desert that is amazing. I do run UV filters too but they weren’t doing it on their own. This stuff is a miracle worker! We shall see what happens in 120° temps this summer. This is a great testing ground… the Sonora Desert Outback, in SW Arizona.”

May 25, 2015 – Nualgi Ponds & UV Filter Gets the Job Done!

“It doesn’t work immediately but now that it is showing progress, it is something I will never be without.”

“I couldn’t even SEE these fish a couple of months ago so I knew summer was going to be a train wreck….now look. With shade, 2 uv filters, and Nualgi all working together….I can see my little pals again. I can see them clearly on my underwater koicam as well. Desert living can be brutal but Nualgi due helps with lessening the damage. They help you every step of the way. Thank you, Nualgi!!! I am a VERY satisfied customer! Btw, I live in the Sonora Desert Outback in SW Arizona….BRUTAL sunlight and over 110° temperature all summer. This is after about 8 weekly doses and uv filters. Good bacteria is the only way to go to get the right synergy. In less harsh climates Nualgi should do the job on its own.”

“Out here in the Arizona desert, I found that I needed to use UV filters with Nualgi. Used by themselves, neither one could clear my pond. I will use Nualgi forever and all year round, as it has made my overall pond condition much healthier. It doesn’t work immediately but now that it is showing progress, it is something I will never be without. It is kind of like the good bacteria in your gut, if you don’t have it, everything goes bad. My desert pond is about 2700 gallons with 37 koi and goldfish. We have also shaded the whole pond.”

June 3, 2015 – After Two Months of Treatment

“Before the pond was so green you couldn’t see the fish unless they came to the top and now it is clear as a bell.”

“Latest daytime shot after about 2 months of treatment and 2 uv filters. My pond has been treated with a little over 2.5ml of Nualgi a week, since mid April, when it was mucky green. Now the only green is the teensy bit on the bottom that the koi nibble on and I think that is probably normal. We shall see what happens when the desert sun warms up to 120°. I have faith.”

“Nighttime shot. You can see the fish easily, even at night! Fish are happy and I am VERY happy!! 🙂 I live in the Arizona desert so this is really amazing progress in my eyes! Plus this team will help you all they can.”

June 20, 2015 – Crystal Clear Water During the Peak of Summer

“Last year the pond was a green murky mess, but no more! Nualgi has proven itself in this climate!”

“I can give you a testimony that is almost unbelievable..from the Sonora Desert Outback in Arizona. The sun is boiling down on us, the high ambient temp has been 119 for several days now pond temp is 85 and NUALGI, with the aid of 2 UV filters and 2 large bio tank filters, is keeping my 2700 gal pond crystal clear. We have screen roofs over the whole pond but it never did the job, even with a UV filter and bio filtration, but this stuff is a miracle! Last year the pond was a green murky mess, but no more! Nualgi had proven itself in this climate! We will never be without Nualgi again!! These folks will give you phone, email, and Facebook support. Thank you Nualgi!!!”

July 4, 2015 – Nualgi Helps Fight String Algae

“The natural treatment is working so well that I haven’t had to rake and pull out buckets full of string algae like I did last year.”

“Living in the Arizona low desert, with heat near 120, 4 monsoon storms in the past week have helped grow string algae in my pond, plus I have red spotted toads mucking it up with eggs and tadpoles is making quite a challenge… but this year is easy, compared to last year. The natural treatment is working so well that I haven’t had to rake and pull out buckets full of string algae like I did last year. Adding the microbe lift and a second weekly treatment of Nualgi is working on the string algae already. I can clearly see my fish. These folks will help you if you pose a question to them. Thank you for your product and personal service!”

July 25, 2015 – Nualgi Helps Fight String Algae

“I will never be without Nualgi again…plus these folks really bend over backwards to help you.”

“My pond isn’t perfect but it’s clear enough that I can see the bottom and I can watch my fish on my koicam. Last summer, I couldn’t. I will never be without Nualgi again…plus these folks really bend over backwards to help you. This photo was taken early this morning, just as the sun came up. Pretty clear. 🙂 ”

August 3, 2015 – 4 Months of dosing Nualgi

“My pond is clear, all the way to the bottom, where there is growth and there is some stuff on the plants but the water itself is clear. I use Nualgi with extra filtration for summer. It is a real battle out here, in the 110+ temperatures of the low Arizona desert aggravated by a bunch of breeding, poisonous to the touch, red spot toads. Nualgi is a BIG part of my arsenal. It takes a while to get it cleared when it is a green mess.

The green you see is actually the reflection of the screen pergola over the entire pond. This pond was new last July and it turned green, with algae, almost immediately.. we started adding covers and eventually had it totally covered..but march came and so did the algae so I ordered NUALGI and it worked in about a months time… until it got really hot ( My pond temps average 85° daily in the summer) and Nualgi helped by saying that good bacteria would help and it sure does! I mean LOOK AT THESE BABIES! I can see the ones on the bottom AND the Koicam! And it doesn’t hurt any living thing, but algae.”

  1. I would love to know the schedule of nualgi, microbe lift, and UV filtering. Nualgi has done a wonderful job so far with the string algae but this summer heat is creating a huge amount of green water. I’ve ordered the microbe lift and plan to rotate the nualgi and microbe lift on a weekly basis but I’m curious how you incorporated the UV light.
