MuckAway is the Original Muck Reducer leading the industry as the most effective and proven solution for muck reduction. Developed from over 20 years of research and comprehensive field studies, MuckAway bacteria rapidly consume muck, converting it to an odorless gas that escapes unnoticed out of the water column. MuckAway utilizes BioMax Technology, a proprietary method to formulate the safest and most effective natural treatment - MuckAway eliminates up to 2" of muck each month! No water uses restrictions, and safe for use in lakes and ponds.
How Does MuckAway Work?
As ponds and lakes age, organic debris from fish waste, leaves, twigs, plant decay, and organic runoff accumulates to form thick, foul-smelling pond muck. The naturally occurring bacteria in the waterbody are often not enough to keep up with muck accumulation.
MuckAway tablets are designed to sink below the water's surface, traveling directly to the muck layer. Tablets then dissolve, releasing highly concentrated beneficial bacteria that instantly begin consuming and digesting the settled organic debris, rapidly converting it into an odorless gas that escapes unnoticed out of the water column. The high concentration of beneficial bacteria works at the microscopic level to eliminate up to 2 inches of muck each month!
With over 20 years of proven laboratory and field results, MuckAway is the most widely used, most effective, proven solution to muck reduction. Formulated specifically to remove pond muck from beaches, lake shorelines, and dock areas, as well as eliminate noxious pond odors.
BioMax Technology - Bacteria Formulated for Pond & Lake Applications
There are trillions of bacteria strains on Earth, each with unique properties and specialties. MuckAway utilizes BioMax Technology, a proprietary formulating process developed by Airmax. The BioMax process starts with analyzing the DNA of bacteria to ensure the correct bacterial strain is selected depending on the application. Once this process is complete, the bacteria are paired with specific micronutrients and enzymes to maximize the effectiveness of the formula while allowing it to work consistently in a wider range of environments.
Through this process, as well as extensive research and field testing, Airmax has selected exclusive beneficial bacteria strains that are the most effective in pond muck reduction. Those powerful strains make MuckAway the industry leader in muck and pond sludge reduction.

Proven Results in Field Studies
A customer in Sanford, Michigan, treated a beachfront property every two weeks from April through September. In the fall, the village of Sanford performed a drawdown of the lake to carry out maintenance of the dam. The area that was untreated showed a buildup of muck while the adjacent treated area showed the natural sand bottom. Click here to read the full field study.
