PondPerfect and Farm Pond Treatment reduce bad odor, but what’s the difference?
PondPerfect eliminates bad odor in smaller ponds (50 gallons up to ¼ acre). PondPerfect is a non-toxic biological clarifier (quart and gallon sizes available for purchase on this site).
Farm Pond Treatment eliminates bad odor in larger lakes (¼ acre up to many acres) and contains one gallon of ultra-concentrated liquid bacteria, plus one slow-release, powder-based EcoSock (see photo), which work together for a full month.
WHAT GIVES PONDS BAD ODOR?
Hydrogen sulfide gas (H2S) causes bad odor. Bad odor is the “rotten egg” smell. Bad odor is formed at the bottom of the pond, in the anaerobic (no oxygen) zone. The more sludge, the more potential for bad odor.
HOW TO ELIMINATE BAD ODOR
The best way to eliminate bad odor is to minimize the sludge build up. Sludge comes from sources including grass, leaves, fish waste, and dead algae.
More sludge means worse bad odor. Certain bacteria (desulfovibrio) live at the pond bottom where there is no oxygen, and convert odorless sulfate into H2S, creating bad odor. Desulfovibrio bacteria live at the sludge-water interface. Digest the sludge and you reduce the activity of the sulfide-producing bacteria. That means less bad odor.
