As you know common issues with pond/lakes are the overgrowth of weeds, algae, foul odors and cloudy water. These issues are imbalances in the overall health of the body of water and are caused by lack of circulation/water stagnation, lack of dissolved oxygen suspended in the water, build up of organic nutrients, imbalance with fish populations and a lack of beneficial microscopic life in the water. I address all of these issues, as well, possible issues with the lake/pond surrounding environment which can effect its health. My approach to water quality is all natural, I do not employ the use of any chemicals, I implement long term natural solutions.
What I can do for your lake/pond will depend on the body of water, its issues, how much you want to budget and to what degree of water quality you are wanting to create.
My working relationship for clients starts with an in person consultation to survey pond/lake, discuss options and demonstrate equipment. I am an independent, not salaried by any firm, so I must charge for consultation to cover my time and travel expenses. Cost depends on how far I must travel. I am just a one man show and am often on the road servicing client in the entire western US.
The Oloid Water Circulation Technology
From Switzerland the Oloid system has been in used worldwide since 1998 with hundreds of installations. I have been directly involved with implementing the Oloid since 2004. I serve as Inversion-Technik GmbH exclusive representative in the United States. The Oloid has been used in numerous applications including ocean harbors, lakes & ponds, aquariums and fish farms, liquid manure ponds and sewage treatment plants.

BioHaven® floating islands (also known as floating treatment wetlands or FTWs) are a new and powerful tool in water stewardship. They biomimic natural floating islands to create a “concentrated” wetland effect. Independent laboratory tests showed removal rates far in excess of previously published data: 20 times more nitrate, 10 times more phosphate and 11 times more ammonia, using unplanted islands. They are also extremely effective at reducing total suspended solids and dissolved organic carbon in waterways.
Environmental Remediation with EM
EM or effective microorganisms, developed in Japan, is used to clarify water and to digest sludge and nutrients that would otherwise feed algae and weeds. EM is applied at a rate of 10,000 to 1 monthly.

Truxor Amphibious Machine
Truxor is a multifunctional amphibious machine for lake clearing and for the maintenance of wetlands and water bodies, available with a wide range of tools and accessories. The amphibious nature of the Truxor allows access to areas normally inaccessible to conventional machines. Truxor is the ideal solution for work in lakes, canals and other wetland habitats. The weight distribution system gives low ground pressure and floating capacity to the machine, offering unique opportunities for work in sensitive environments.
Truxor’s flexibility, allows it to operate on water, in the shallow margins and on dry land at the waters edge. It’s lightweight construction is perfect for working in sensitive environments such as nature reserves, conservation areas, canal banks even golf courses where conventional contractor’s machinery may cause damage. The versatility of the Truxor allows it to effectively carry out a wide range of tasks including reed cutting and collection, silt pumping, dredging, channel excavation, oil spill clean-up, and much, much more.
