How do I treat algae in ponds or lakes?

Green Algae and Cyanobacteria (Blue Green Algae) can be controlled using Ultrasonic Algae Control devices or for shallower/smaller ponds a combination of dye to reduce light penetration and bacteria to reduce bioavailable nutrient content.

The Hydro BioScience ultrasonic algae control has proven to be effective in tanks, lakes, reservoirs and other personal and commercial installations. Floating just below the surface, the device operates 24-hours a day, providing coverage of up to 17 acres for green algae and up to 124 acres for blue green algae, depending on species and conditions. Multiple units can be installed for larger water bodies, they are easy to install, require almost no maintenance. The Hydro BioScience ultrasonic devices are suitable for use in remote areas, as their low energy requirements allow them to be solar-powered.

A great review about our Ultrasonic Algae Control Units at Bewl Water Aquapark


We’ve used the AWE Ultrasonic units for the past three seasons with excellent results.

Bewl rents three units from AWE these are strategically placed in the reservoir each year towards the end of March operating until removal in late September.

Installing the units any later enables the Blue/Green algae to establish a growth foothold in the rapidly warming water. Three units cover the main basin and activity area of Bewl Waters 800 acres of water.

Ultrasonic Algae Control Kent – Bewl Water Kent

Week starting March 1st 2021:

With two projects booked into the week, it was an early Monday morning start to drive down to Bewl water in Kent for the Installation of three solar-powered Sonicsolution quattro DB ultrasonic units. This will be the third continuous season of ultrasonic treatment which has successfully kept algae at bay to keep the recreational facilities and aqua park open to the public.

The new AWE designed solar floating array design meant the deployment of three units only took 90 minutes from arriving at site.

With a satisfied on-site client, the units were deployed into the water body.


With Bewl completed, it was onto a historically important private estate on the Isle of Sheppey for our monthly treatment of their lake.

AWE utilized Aquaclean ACF-SC bacterial inoculant to biologically digest the substantial organic fraction content of the substrate. To assist with this digestion process a boat mounted substrate agitation system and two subsurface aeration systems were installed.

To aid with the removal of mineral content in the substrate AWE will use silt trap matting, dewatering and recirculating equipment during future monthly visits.

With this visit complete we are looking forward to repeating work and more contacts in the South East.
