Bacteria is bacteria, right? Not really. In nature, thousands of bacteria species perform many important jobs. The natural bacteria products found in the EcoPack™ were chosen for their unique ability to break down suspended debris and sunken muck in pond water. And they’re really good at what they do.
The three different aerobic natural bacteria products found in the EcoPack™ play different roles in the pond:
The bacteria in Biological Clarifier™ are designed to attack organic debris that’s suspended in the water column, like fish waste, uneaten food and leaves. To use, simply toss the water-soluble packets in the water. The bacteria will immediately go to work breaking down the excess nutrients. We recommend using Biological Clarifier™ in conjunction with MuckOff™ in the summer. The result: crystal clear water.
To attack the accumulated organic debris that builds up at the bottom of the pond, MuckOff™ comes in bacteria-packed tablets that sink straight down. Upon application, the tablets release bacteria that instantly begin to break down and digest hard-to-reach muck and sludge from the bottom of gravel and rock pond bottoms. The result: reduced muck and no pond odor.
The bacteria in ClarityMax™ contains bacteria and enzymes that clean, polish and breakdown dead organic debris around waterfalls, streams, plant pots and filtration systems. The result: clean rocks, waterfalls and stream beds.
Though Biological Clarifier™, MuckOff™ and ClarityMax™ all contain beneficial bacteria, they’re designed to do different things in a pond. Are all three necessary? Yes indeed! When used together, enjoy clear water, a clean pond and reduced muck and odor all year long.
