Macro-Zyme is the perfect choice for the control and elimination of sludge and foul odor in tanks, ponds, and lakes. Once introduced, Macro-Zyme quickly releases billions of friendly and beneficial bacteria and enzymes that work around the clock to clear, neutralize, and purify water. Used by professionals since 1991, this concentrated professional grade formula was the first on the market to introduce a 1-step maintenance program that utilizes natural bacteria and enzymes to rapidly biodegrade top and bottom sludge while reducing components that contribute to sludge build up in ponds of all sizes. Macro-Zyme will also reduce nitrates and phosphates. These bacteria, as well as the bacteria in Macro-Zyme + will:

  • Reduce odors in 24 hours or less
  • Rapidly remove dead grass, leaves, paper, fish waste, and sludge
  • Clear water and help restore a healthy oxygen level
  • Reapply every 2-3 weeks

The Block by pond boss PRO is a blend of live bacteria and enzymes specifically designed to improve water quality by reducing unwanted nutrients. Decaying nutrients such as leaves, grass clipping, dead plants, excess food and other organic material build at the bottom of the pond in what is commonly called the "sludge" layer of the pond. The sludge layer is most often responsible for undesirable odors and low oxygen levels. Regular use of pond boss PRO The Block will degrade unwanted organic debris accumulation and improve the overall health of the pond while clearing the water column of unwanted organic material.
