Ponds & Lakes

Use nature’s own solution to clean up your pond or lake!

Many artificial ponds and water features suffer from high organic loading and sludge build-up, often leading to murkiness, foaming and other issues.

Using natural bacteria to break down the sludges and consume excess nutrients is the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to remedy a pond and achieve perfect water quality.

Water Clarity

Water Clarity Problems. Clarity problems occur whenever you have a combination of pond water, sun, N (nitrogen) and P (phosphorous). These cause the growth of photosynthesising algae in the pond, which can make the water ‘murky’ or coloured with green or blue. The live bacteria in ACF-SC Dual-Packs consume N and P as food. The ACF bacteria consume N and P extremely quickly, and without any toxicity. Dual-Packs restore the natural balance in a pond, promoting a healthy mix of natural bacteria. Through use of Dual-Packs, a pond is restored to its' natural clarity and beauty.

Sludge & Odour

Almost all ponds, particularly older ponds, have sludge build up. Sludge is the organic sediment located at the bottom of the pond. Several problems happen when the sludge build up gets heavy. The pond may have plenty of oxygen in the water near the top of the water column, but in the sludge at the bottom of the pond, there is very little oxygen. Disease-causing, odour-generating “anaerobic bacteria” live in the sludge at the bottom of the pond. The worse the sludge build up, the greater the risk of fish disease. Foul pond odours (usually thought of as “rotten egg smell”) also come from the sludge in the bottom of the pond.

ACF Dual-Pack

The Solution: ACF-SC Dual-Pack is designed specifically for ponds and lakes, and consists of a liquid concentrated bacteria and the powder based bag. These work together to digest the sludge at the bottom of a pond. This means that the risk of fish disease is reduced, and foul pond odours are eliminated.

Note: ACF bacteria digest organic sludge (leaves, dead algae, fish/bird waste, etc.). ACF products do not digest clay, sand or silt.
