    I'm starting a pond maintainance business here in east central Illinois this coming spring and I need help in pricing my services. I'm interested in first time applications as well as bi weekly services. Also where do you guys get your chemicals, I use SePro. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Overhead + profit needed will determine price charged.
    Will you be using a can sprayer or electic? Boat or inflatable or from shore?
    What are you treating for and what kind of guarentee are you offering?
    Your answers should help you determine your price to charge

    Of course a home owner could just dump some cooper sulfate in and a bag a karmex and have a weed & algea free pond for the yr. You can't get away with that being lisc.
