All lake and pond owners (potential lake and pond owners as well!) dream of having crystal clear water. Not to mention a balanced, self-sufficient ecosystem thriving in their water body.

Likewise, crystalline water has more pros than simply looking amazing: it has health benefits for you and your family, as well as the ecosystem that lives in it. Fish, insects, birds, small mammals, arachnids and even humans, are all benefited by a healthy water body.

Crystaline water is bacteria and germ free, so it does not pose a real threat of infection for users of all species. In addition, crystalline water means higher oxygen levels which are beneficial micro organisms and for fish, fortifying the food chain from top to bottom. Crystaline water also prevents foul odors caused by bacteria infestation and mosquito infestations. More fish means they feed on mosquitoes and other pests; the same goes for birds, small mammals and arachnids.

Fish and microorganisms are killed off by the lack of oxygen, and the whole ecosystem is heavily damaged. Mosquitoes tend to nest in murky waters, which are crowded with harmful bacteria and can easily cause grave health conditions. In addition foul odors start emanating from your lake or pond, rendering it useless for all water based activities.
