EcoBoost PRx is an all-natural phosphate binder, eliminating the need for heavy metals. Phosphates come into the pond from leaves, twigs, grass clippings, fish waste, other organic matter, and storm runoff, which carries fertilizers and other contaminants that can begin to disrupt the natural aquatic ecosystem, causing poor water quality. EcoBoost PRx is a proprietary blend of naturally occurring phosphate binders designed to bind Free Reactive Phosphorus (FRP) permanently.
EcoBoost PRx binds phosphates quickly, safely, and effectively making them unusable and helping to prevent future water quality issues. EcoBoost PRx will not affect pH levels, has no water use restrictions, and is safe for use in lakes, ponds, lagoons, and other aquatic environments.
Preventive treatments such as water clarifiers, muck reducers, and pond dye can help reduce excessive nutrients and improve water quality and are a key step in the Airmax Ecosystem, a simple 3 step approach to pond and lake management. The Airmax Ecosystem is the industry-leading method to achieve a clean, clear, thriving aquatic ecosystem. Learn more about the Airmax Ecosystem.
The natural phosphate binders in EcoBoost PRx work within the water column to clear up cloudy or murky water resulting from storm runoff, chemical fertilizers, organic decomposition, and chemical herbicide or algaecide treatments. The highly effective, all-natural phosphate binders found in EcoBoost PRx eliminate the need for heavy metal treatments.
Excessive Phosphates Fuel Poor Water Quality and Algae Blooms
Phosphorus is the main nutrient that supports the growth of aquatic plants, and it is a natural part of an aquatic ecosystem.
Phosphates enter a pond or lake from fish waste, leaves, lawn clippings, other organic matter, and storm runoff, which carries fertilizers and contaminants that can begin to disrupt the natural aquatic ecosystem. Human activity is increasing phosphate levels at a dramatic rate and making headlines around the world.
High levels of phosphates can cause toxic algae blooms, rampant weed growth, and poor water quality. Unless phosphates are controlled, successful aquatic management is limited.
EcoBoost PRx is designed to bind excess phosphates quickly, safely, and effectively making them unusable as a food source for algae and weeds. EcoBoost PRx provides a natural solution for excess phosphates where there were previously only heavy metal solutions. Heavy metals (such as treatments with aluminum sulfate) negatively affect pH levels in aquatic environments.
Fish, Pet, Livestock & Wildlife Friendly
EcoBoost PRx may be applied to lakes, ponds, and lagoons used for irrigation and/or aquaculture. Water treated with EcoBoost PRx may be used for recreation, fishing, and other activities immediately after treatment. Safe for recreational ponds, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife, and the environment.
Learn how a 16−week treatment plan using EcoBoost PRx was able to reduce nearly 98% of Free Reactive Phosphorous (FRP) that led to increased water clarity and a reduction of harmful lake algae blooms, in our EcoBoost PRX Phosphate Control Study. Click here to read the full study.

When to Apply
Use EcoBoost PRx as an initial or reset application early in the spring or any time phosphates become a problem, such as following heavy rain. Use 10 lb (20 scoops) of EcoBoost PRx per 1/4 surface acre early in the season or when poor water quality issues exist.
Use EcoBoost PRx as a maintenance application to continually bind excessive phosphates in the water column and to maintain water quality. Use 1 lb (2 scoops) of EcoBoost PRx per 1/4 surface acre every two weeks.
How to Apply
Mix 1 to 2 lb (2 to 4 scoops) of EcoBoost PRx in a clean pail with 2-3 gallons of pond water. Stir the solution and evenly distribute it along the shoreline by pouring directly from the pail. EcoBoost PRx can be used to bind phosphates anytime water temperatures are above freezing.
Water Use Restrictions
EcoBoost PRx may be applied to lakes, ponds, and lagoons used for irrigation and/or aquaculture. Water treated with EcoBoost PRx may be used for recreation, fishing, and other activities immediately after treatment. Safe for recreational ponds, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife, and the environment. EcoBoost PRx has no water temperature restrictions and may be used year-round to control phosphates.
