How much should I expect to spend annually on water treatments to maintain a 1000 gallon pond?

This all depends on what you are trying to accomplish and how long your season is. I will give two examples using what we believe to be “have to” treatment products. 


Ponds that are dormant in the winter
 

1 X 250 ml. bottle Pond Detoxifier will treat up to 5000 gallons giving customers plenty for a spring cleanout, as well as adding water or topping off evaporated water during summer months.  Beneficial Bacteria for ponds comes in a liquid form as well as dry. We recommend using the liquid in the spring and continuing with the dry as a maintenance product.  1 X 250 ml Liquid Beneficial Bacteria for ponds  contains 50 pumps We recommend treating in the spring (April 1st) 1 pump per 100 gallons, two times weekly for the first two weeks. 1000 gallon pond uses 20 pumps week one and 20 pumps week two for a total of 200mls. This will leave 50 ml giving you enough bacteria for an additional 1 week bringing you to (April 22nd).  1X 250 gram Beneficial Bacteria for Ponds dry treats one scoop per 1000 gallons weekly, each bottle contains 52 scoops giving you enough products to treat 1000 gallons for one full year. To summarize:1 X 250 ml Pond Detoxifier (MSRP 14.98)1 X 250 ml Liquid Beneficial Bacteria (MSRP 12.98)1X 125 gram Beneficial Bacteria (MSRP 12.98) = to 26 treatments. That’s 50 cents a treatment!1 X 8.8oz EcoBlast (MSRP 13.98) 

Total cost for treatment of 1000 gallons for one pond season when pond is dormant in the winter would be under $55.00

Ponds that are run all year round

1 X 250 ml. bottle Pond Detoxifier will treat up to 5000 gallons giving customers plenty for a spring cleanout as well as adding water or topping off evaporated water during summer months.  Beneficial Bacteria for ponds dry. We recommend using this product year round in warmer climates. 1X 250 gram Beneficial Bacteria for Ponds dry treats one scoop per 1000 gallons weekly, each bottle contains 52 scoops giving you enough products to treat 1000 gallons for one full year. To summarize:1 X 250 ml Pond Detoxifier (MSRP 14.98)1X 250 gram Beneficial Bacteria (MSRP 19.98)1 X 38.4oz EcoBlast (MSRP 32.98) 

Total cost for treatment of 1000 gallons for one pond season when pond is run year round would be under $68.00.  To put that in perspective, the annual cost to run a hot tub or spa with chemicals for the same time period is between $150 and $200.
