What makes our bacteria packs better than other products on the market? First is concentration.
We use 2 Billion CFU’s per gram of bacteria. Most other companies only use a 1B formulation to save money. We also use a 5-way blend of microbes formulated specifically for ponds and lakes. These strains are highly active at breaking down organic matter and are used extensively in the wastewater treatment industry. Lastly, with our dry formulation, we can get 20-50x more active bacteria in the package than you can with a liquid bacteria product. Ask before you purchase someone else’s product what their concentration is and how many strains of microbes they use. Many suppliers don’t know, and if they do, they won’t tell you.
Product Use Rates:
Apply 4 lbs (8 waters-soluble packets) per surface acre every two weeks. Double the initial dose and start treating once the water temperature hits 50 degrees F. Note: For ponds that have excessive sediment (black organic matter) on the bottom or are prone to algae, you may want to double the application rate for best results.
