The ABC's Of Pond Health

Ponds have a life cycle. Every pond is an ecosystem that is impacted by the surrounding environment. The scientific term is eutrophication, which is a natural process that occurs in an aging lake or pond as that body of water gradually builds up its concentration of plant nutrients. Artificial eutrophication occurs when human activity introduces increased amounts of these nutrients, which speed up plant growth and eventually deplete the lake of its animal life. With fertilizer runoff, fish waste, decaying vegetation building up over time, every pond owner faces this natural process. Algae blooms, excessive weed growth and fish kills are typical symptoms of the problem.

Remember the acronym ABC as a natural solution for creating a balanced pond eco-system, using these three elements of pond health:

Aeration is one of the keys to pond health. Stagnant, thermally stratified, oxygen starved ponds can be revived simply by adding aeration - an added circulation of oxygen - to the water. Tests have demonstrated a doubling of water clarity, healthy dissolved oxygen levels at all depths, reductions in ammonia, muck and elimination of thermal stratification.

Bacteria occur naturally in a pond. Their job is to digest decaying organic matter. Our strains of beneficial bacteria and enzymes are able to consume many times the decaying matter as those occurring naturally. By adding bacteria you reduce the nutrient load over time resulting in a balanced pond eco-system. Clean.Clear.Blue - our blend of Bacteria, and pureBlue pond dye - provides a complete treatment in one handy container.

Colorant or Pond Dye is a tool to limit sunlight in a pond. Our pureBlue pond dye offers a brilliant natural blue.

Mukk Busster is a specially formulated microbial pellet designed to decrease the level of organic sediment in ponds and lakes while reducing odors and improving clarity.
Mukk Busster pellets are designed to sink quickly while maintaining their integrity until they reach the mucky bottom. Once on the bottom the pellet dissolves evenly and releases bacteria and enzymes (Lipase, Protease, Amylase and Cellulase) which begin digesting leaf litter, dead algae cells, grass clippings, dead plant matter and other components commonly found in organic pond and lake muck sediment. Cygnet Muck Buster is fish and wildlife friendly and does not contain any pathogenic bacteria.
It is available in 10 pound plastic jugs, the start-up application rate is 20 pounds per surface acre and the maintenance application rate is 10 pounds per surface acre every 30 to 60 days thereafter.
