In January 1997 I purchased a defunct 10 acre Tropical Fish Farm in Florida. I cleared away the land and opened up the ponds to begin raising tropical fish once again on the farm. We soon realized that a good algae bloom in my ponds was a critical element to provide nourishment and food for fry to help them to grow. One by one I would clean, fill, start an algae bloom and then add the fry. Our process proved successful.
In 2001 another opportunity presented itself in the form of Pond Service and Maintenance on Koi Ponds. This was a challenge in many respects but mainly because these ponds couldn’t have ANY algae at all. Throughout the next two years we experimented with nearly every Algaecide available on the market with mixed results. Some should have never been made while others just simply killed fish if not properly dosed, there was no margin of error. Most had heavy EPA Warnings and were very toxic. Frustration brought us to realize we needed to further understand algae so we began studying hundreds if not thousands of different types of algae. This was also the time we realized we wanted to “GO GREEN” on our farm and only use Natural and Eco-Friendly product. No more caustic chemicals. No more poisons. No more heavy metals.
In April of 2008 we found an Eco-Friendly product that seemed to work very well on controlling algae in ponds. It was not being used for this purpose so we began experimenting with doses and application methods with ever increasing success.
In June of that same year one of our best clients contacted us about a pond that had a massive water chemistry change due to the weather. On a Wednesday, the property manager insisted the pond had to be CRYSTAL CLEAR for an event they were having over the weekend. With less than three days to make this happen we realized we didn’t have enough of one product to properly dose the pond. We proceeded to mix several different products we had been working with together and treated the water, said a prayer, and hoped the phone wasn’t going to ring first thing the next morning. The phone rang first thing the next morning but to my surprise the property manager on the other end was ecstatic telling me the water is so clear you have to touch the surface to see where it is! We had found our “SILVER BULLET”! Knowing that everyone was happy the product worked so well and so quickly was great but knowing everything was Eco-Friendly was very encouraging. We now felt we could use this product with all of our accounts.
In October of 2009 we were contacted by the Village of Wellington, Florida Code Compliance Office to assist them in regards to several foreclosed properties with pools that were inundated with algae. We showed them a proprietary product specifically designed for this purpose. Wellington gave us 5 test pools and our product worked perfectly to their needs. In early January of 2010 Breen Acres Aquatics, Inc. was awarded a “Sole Source Contractor” status for our product. To date we have treated over 200 pools in Wellington . Even after 6 months, many of our pools are still clear! Our product will keep pool water clear for 4-6 months without retreating. The only determining factor is the weather or specifically the amount of rain we receive as Dilution through Solution applies here.
