As fountains get older, they have to be scrubbed by hand on a weekly basis ..! Not only does this become exhausting and tedious, but after a while you begin to scrape-off the fountain's paint while trying to get to the hard moss that slowly takes a hold on the basins.

That's why this particular Pond Protector was a godsend for me; the moss is cut by 90 percent. What is usually a weekly to bi-weekly manual scrubbing of cold water, becomes a weekly squirt from your bottle - and only a monthly visit to your fountain (perhaps every 3 weeks during the summer time).

Something else that was very important to me, was how this particular brand isn't harmful to animals. This is a must for any fountain owner unless you want poisoned animals around your home.. I wonder why it isn't law for all pond protectors to be safe for animals?!

In any case, if you start this Protecant on a NEW fountain then the spores from moss won't have the chance to get a hold on the basins and the time in between manual cleanings will be even longer.

So that's it! This product has been a savior to my mom - and to me.. Neither one of us have to dread the pond's existence anymore.

The absolute hardest thing to control in a birdbath during summer temperatures is algae. Regardless of the amount of this product I used (even after killing all algae on pump, parts, and basin during cleaning), the algae returned with a vengeance after two days. Cleaning the pump and related parts and the basin takes about 1/2 hour and I don't want to have to do that every day. I was hoping for something that would turn that into a weekly chore. But finding an algae controller in Arizona desert heat that is also safe for the birds is something I've been trying to solve for years. Copper implements are a joke. Hydrogen peroxide works but kills all the plants around the birdbath. Chlorine will hurt the birds. I paid $25 for this product and it was a complete waste of money. Still looking for that algae kller/bird loving miracle.

A must have if you have critters in the yard

Comments about Gold Crest Distributing All-in-One Pond and Fountain Protector:

I use this in my outdoor fountains, waterfalls, ponds, birdbaths, as well as my indoor ones. It is a must if you want to keep the water safe for the critters, as well as avoid unsightly calcium deposits, mildew, bacteria, etc from forming which can lead to odors as well.

for large volumes of water, not small fountains

By Greta

Comments about Gold Crest Distributing All-in-One Pond and Fountain Protector:

I ordered this because it was recommended with fountains. I have a small fountain that takes about 1 gallon of water. This product suggests one cap of product for 100 gallons of water, so I have no idea how to use for a one gallon fountain.

              scummy, dirty water always made my fountains unnatractive. Hopefully Pond Fountain protector will change that

                      The birds love the bath, and we love watching them. This helps keep it clean and I only need to clean the bird bath every few days. It's safe too.

                      After draining and flushing my water feature several times I re-filled it with clean water and added this product per the instructions on the bottle. In less than a week I had green slime everywhere the water touched!
