We are Aquatic Services of Indiana located in Greenwood IN and we cover all of central Indiana. We specialize in the treatment of pond weeds, algae, shorelines, and any and all fountain work. Our work season is between the months of March and mid November while work hours are from 8am to 4pm. The job of an applicator covers a wide variety of tasks such as pond inspection, treatment for algae/weeds, operating a boat with outboard motor, applying EPA registered herbicides, speaking properly with and answering clients questions, as well as assisting in fountain troubleshooting and maintenance. Every applicator is trained then supplied with a work truck, trailer, boat, and any other necessary equipment for their daily tasks.

This job requires a good deal of self management as you will be alone throughout a majority of your route. In the spring we spend the first month redeploying and installing fountains that we pulled for the previous winter. Then in the summer our treatment season lasts from April to mid October, which consists of bi-weekly visits/treatments of our customer's ponds. Finally in the fall we begin pulling the fountains back out to store them over the winter and provide any necessary maintenance.
