Eliminate Pond Sludge

 

PondPerfect and Farm Pond Treatment digest lake and pond sludge, but what’s the difference?

PondPerfect eliminates lake and pond sludge in smaller systems (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 lake and pond sludge in larger systems (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 CAUSES LAKE AND POND SLUDGE BUILD UP?

Lake and pond sludge comes from many sources such as excess feed, dead algae from excess blooms, leaves and grass clippings, etc. The more lake and pond sludge present, the more oxygen is pulled from the water, especially in warm temperatures. Excess lake and pond sludge is directly responsible for fish death from oxygen loss, growth of pathogenic bacteria that thrive in the sludge, and release of H2S gas (responsible for rotten egg smell). Excess lake and pond sludge causes tremendous problems.PondPerfect is an ideal tool for digesting lake and pond sludge.

HOW TO ELIMINATE LAKE AND POND SLUDGE

The best way to eliminate lake and pond sludge is to add PondPerfect. PondPerfect and Farm Pond Treatment contain safe, natural bacteria that digest organic sludge at the lake and pond bottom.

The bacteria that digest complex lake and pond sludge produce enzymes that attack the sludge, breaking it down into simple compounds that any lake and pond bacteria can consume. These special bacteria are great at making enzymes, but they have a slow reproduction rate when making the needed enzymes. Because they reproduce slowly, there are not enough of these enzyme-producing bacteria in the lake and pond bottom to deal with the sludge. That is why lake and pond sludge always builds up! Adding PondPerfect to your lake and pond provides enough bacteria to make sure sludge is at a minimum. This reduces problems such as oxygen sag, pathogens, and rotten egg smell in your lake and pond.

Knowledgeable professionals use PondPerfect to reduce lake and pond sludge to proper levels. Remember that it took years to build up, so safely reducing lake and pond sludge will take a month or two (longer with severe lake and pond problems).
