How it Works

We at TLC are particularly proud of the technological edge behind our bacterial and chemical products. Our superior technology benefits you by providing superior results.

Our founder and CEO, John M. Wong, has been a leading pioneer in the field of aquatic ecology, bacterial augmentation, and biological wastewater treatment. Our staff brings over 35 years of experience in providing state-of-the-art products and solutions to aquatic systems.

The Science Behind TLC Products

TLC Products manufactures completely safe, non-toxic live bacteria, which are used to purify water in ponds, aquariums, fountains, and in wastewater treatment. All of our bacterial strains are completely natural, non-GMO, and completely safe when used as directed.

All product bacterial strains are maintained as pure seed cultures, grown under sterile conditions, and stabilized using patented and trade secret processes, so that the highest quality liquid and powdered bacterial products with a minimum of 1 year shelf life after purchase are provided to our domestic USA and international markets.

Bacteria, along with other organisms, are responsible for consuming and removing impurities in water. These impurities are often classified as either inorganic or organic waste.

Inorganic wastes (generally from mineral, non-living sources) are chemicals such as ammonia and phosphate. Organic wastes (more typically from living sources) are generally more complex, and are larger chemicals such as sugars, proteins, fats, starches, etc.
