The questions about pH start every year about this time. When our weather turns warm and a lot of ponds experience an algae bloom. Algae is a plant right? Remember photosynthesis? During the daylight, plants produce oxygen directly from the carbon dioxide dissolved in the water and energy obtained from the sunlight.... this is also known as photosynthesis.
Without getting too technical ( talking about alkaline carbonates and bicarbonates ) we will just say that is causes the pH to fluctuate ... the more algae = the more fluctuation.
The problem comes in when we don't understand the reasons behind our pH levels and instead of fixing a problem in the pond we want to add in a scoop of this or a scoop of that.
