The Anaconda Booms Story

Our booms have floats crafted from EVA Foam, a product that is practically indestructible has high buoyancy, and is resistant to UV rays and mildew. Nets, manufactured with a high-density polyethylene providing both convenience, strength, and respect for the environment. The net is also resistant to harsh UV rays and mildew. The final component of the booms is a high quality weighted rope.

The booms are as simple as a product can be, lightweight, compact, durable, simple to attach to each other, and easy to repair. In big ponds or lakes, we have attached up to seven booms together (700 feet) and been able to drag the load next to the shore, pulling the booms by hand. When there is a lot of material on the surface we recommend doing partial passes and then the detail work at the end circling the entire pond.

Back in 2010 I began working to remove a pond full of azolla with a hand net and quickly discovered that this was neither practical nor efficient. My wife and I started by sewing a piece of fine mesh in an attempt to craft a device that would be easier to use. It looked promising but didn’t work. After taking a short break from this project I returned determined to make it happen. Over time I made small improvements until it worked like magic. Since then we work year-round harvesting weeds from ponds all over California.

After deliberating for years as to whether or not selling our booms to the public, we decided to go for it. We had received many inquiries about the booms from all over the country, and an encouraging voicemail from a man on the east coast urging us to share our invention with the world. Although I lost that message I would like to extend my gratitude and thanks to this man for sharing his kind words and giving us the push we needed to further our business endeavors. We are proud of pioneering this method of harvesting free-floating aquatic weeds as it is now becoming the norm here in the US and other parts of the world.

Harvesting the weeds versus using only herbicides is beneficial because when you kill the weeds they will sink and produce nutrients that will be recycled time and time again by algae or some other aquatic weed. All of that nutrients will eventually have to be removed for the health and vitality of the body of water.

Generally speaking, the booms remove 99.9% of material when there is minimal vegetation around the edges of the body of water such as; cattails, branches, and blackberries. For the remainder of vegetation, you can use a small amount of herbicide only around the edge making this method friendly to the environment and your budget.
