Water Clarification For Ponds And Lakes

Charles Aquatics, Inc. provides water clarification services. Water clarification, or flocculation, is accomplished using Alum (aluminum sulfate). Charles Aquatics, Inc. will submit a free estimate for a Water Clarification. Under most circumstances we can clarify your waterway to one foot clarity in 24 hours.

Water Clarification /Alum treatments are performed for three primary reasons:

  1. Strictly for aesthetic purposes
  2. To meet conditions set by regulatory agencies to limit the discharge of turbid water into the environment.
  3. To lower nutrient levels to prevent reoccurring algae and cyanobacteria outbreaks..
