We had an urgent problem; our old irrigation system had blockages from weeds and nutrient-rich water was being sucked up into the pumps. Our dam was also riddled with black sludge. Scott recommended both aeration and biologicals and within six weeks the dam became so clear I could see to the bottom of it for the first time in years! I was chuffed that we could fix the issue without the use of chemicals.
Our wastewater system was foaming due to a presence of nasty bacteria. The knowledgeable and friendly Kim advised that we try combining the Aquafix Foam Buster and Quik-Zyme L. Within a week the products arrived and the results were just as fast. They were safe to handle and worked amazingly.
The municipal has a nutrient-rich stormwater lake that was having continuous problems with algae growth. We were previously treating the nutrients with a liquid solution that would just end up getting flushed away with the outgoing water. Scott recommended we switch to Biostim pellets which were exactly what we needed.
After the tragedy that was Black Saturday, I knew I needed a dam that could fight fire as well as being a healthy home for my Trout. Kim and Scott were great at recommending the best surface aeration for me and today my trout have grown into Super Trout!
Over the past eight years, Water Quality Solutions has helped our team on many an occasion through the provision of advice and training on the various aspects of water quality, water treatment, and the equipment required for the same. They have helped us become the leader in water feature design/construction in Australia. We will continue to work with Water Quality Solutions on all future projects which require a more detailed understanding of the marine eco system and the various factors affecting its behaviour.
I have relied on Scott to solve any problems that I have thrown at him, however complex for the last eight years. Since moving to Cairns, he has helped me learn about lakes and dams, which are prominent in our resorts, restaurants, golf courses and wildlife parks. An invaluable point of call for any in the industry.
Our water bodies were attacked by Filamentous algae! We were prescribed the Vertex Twin Air Stations and compressor as well as an Algaecide and Biostim FB. We have not had a single algae problem since the diffuser’s were installed. Where we use the Biostim in smaller ponds that can’t have an aerator installed we have noticed a huge reduction in algae. Water Quality Solutions has always been able to provide solutions that work and Kim is always happy to help.
Having battled algae for years in my 2.5 megalitre dam, in mid-2015 I purchased a tiny, 1/3hp Vertex compressor and twin diffuser. The unit has run trouble-free 24/7 ever since, significantly curbed the appearance of summer algae and greatly reduced our chemical usage. As a result, Water Quality Solutions are my first port of call!
My easily assembled windmill provides aeration to my small dam and a large improvement in water quality using no cost wind power. Building the windmill was easy using items from the local hardware store, the windmill kit and clear instructions from Kim. The kids can now swim in the dam and we have an icon that the neighbours all comment on. Thank you Water Quality Solutions!
Visiting ducks and our pet geese were continuously fouling the dam. Water Quality Solutions recommended a number of systems to improve the water quality. We are very happy with our final choice of the OWS Dam 2 Aeration System. This combined with the Biostim Pellets and Biostim Liquid are cleaning up the dirty dam and ‘everything they said would happen has happened’. If you want to get the job done and get it done right, don't hesitate to contact these guys.
We have been utilising the team at Water Quality Solutions to manage our ornamental lake to keep it in tip-top shape. Whether over the phone or onsite for installations, water quality testing or just making the water sparkle, we would definitely recommend Scott and the team to manage your body of water.
My experience with Water Quality Solutions was very positive. Since installing the Vertex aeration system and the biological products recommended to me, my water quality has improved drastically! I would like to give special thanks to Kim, her professionalism and manner of communication was clear, informative and friendly and it was a pleasure chatting with her. If you are experiencing any problem with your dam, give these guys a call they will not disappoint.
