A pond surface cleaner works to break surface tension of a pond and allow certain particles to sink to the bottom. Naturally occurring pond surface tension forms a bed for fine surface debris such as pollen, dust, and dirt to settle on. Once enough of these fine particles have settled they can make a pond look dirty. A pond surface cleaner works to break the natural surface tension so particles can sink to the pond floor. Surface debris can make a pond look un-kept and that is a shame for pond owners who take every other precaution to have a beautiful pond year round.
