Destroy Pond Odor

TLC Products' Pond Products destroy pond odor by reducing the pond sludge, which result from fish waste, dead plants, grass, and leaves. This sludge buildup causes bad odors. Reduction of foul odor is usually the first benefit from our pond treatment products.

Why Use TLC Products' Pond Treatment

Our 100% natural, live bacteria eat the sludge and muck at the bottom of the pond (desulfovibrio), as well at the pond’s surface. The harmful desulfovibrio change sulfate in H2S causing foul odors, but TLC Products reduces the activity of the sulfide-producing bacteria. Less sulfates, means less H2S and therefore less odor.

Causes of Pond Water Odor

Nearly all ponds, particularly older ponds, have build-up of sludge and muck. Sludge and muck are the organic sediment located at the bottom of the pond and issues occur when it accumulates. The pond may have plenty of oxygen in the water near the top of the column, but in the sludge at the bottom of the pond, there is very little oxygen (anaerobic). Bad odor is formed at the bottom of the pond, in the no-oxygen zone where hydrogen sulfide gas (H2S) is created and causes the “rotten egg” smell. Not only does bad sludge build up cause bad odors, but these bad “anaerobic bacteria” also are disease-causing and harmful to fish and animals. The more sludge, the more odor.


PondPerfect, Farm Pond Treatment Products and EcoSocks have live bacteria to digest organic sludge at the bottom of your pond and therefore destroys the foul pond odors in as little as a week or two.
