Microbe-Lift Sludge Away

Formulated for the removal of organic bottom solids that are slow to degrade, especially helpful in ponds that have a rock or gravel bottom or where vacuuming is impractical. As organic solids accumulate on the pond bottom, they begin to break down releasing toxic gasses. These gaseous by-products can endanger fish, marine life and plants. Microbe-Lift Sludge Away reduces and eliminates potential harmful gaseous compounds and helps clarify your pond water at the same time.

  • Organic and microbial based
  • Safe for fish, plants, pets and the environment

    UltraClear Sludge Digester

    UltraClear® Sludge Digester eliminates sediment pond sludge and pond muck from fish and animal waste, decaying leaves and grass, uneaten fish food, or dead algae. Prevent oxygen depletion from unhealthy pond sludge during the spring and summer. It is difficult to manually remove pond sludge, which is why Sludge Digester is the perfect solution for ponds struggling with sludge issues.

    Pond sludge causes four significant problems. First, pond sludge depletes oxygen reserves, particularly during warm weather. Low oxygen levels can be stressful or fatal to fish and wildlife. Second, the resulting anaerobic zone (an area without dissolved oxygen), which allows dangerous disease-causing bacteria to grow. The larger the anaerobic zone, the greater the potential for harmful pathogens to develop. Third, pond sludge is the main cause of unpleasant pond odors, like hydrogen sulfide, which emits a rotten egg odor. Fourth, pond sludge releases nitrogen and phosphorus that cause severe water quality issues such as algae blooms.

    • Minimize Excess Build-up of Organic Sediment and Anaerobic Zones
    • Prevents Oxygen Depletion from Excessive Sludge Build-Up
    • Eliminates Foul Pond Odors and Improves Water Quality
    • Decreases the potential for Fish Disease
    • Use Throughout Pond Season

    Regular Pond Maintenance Dosage: Add one ounce for every 1000 gallons (Note: 1000 gallons equals 135 cubic feet). Dose at least once a month, or up to once a week for best results. Do not dose more than once a week during the peak summer season.

    Fall Clean-Up Dosage: Use the clean-up dose at the end of pond season, when temperatures and sunlight are reduced (compared to peak summer conditions). Add one ounce for every 1000 gallons daily for 4 to 7 consecutive days.

    Top 3 Winter Tips For Your Pond
