BLAST advances the decomposition of organic matter in a pond or lake through a proprietary blend of multiple strains and species of beneficial bacteria. BLAST is 100% immediately available bacteria and is not intended or designed as a stand-alone water treatment. BLAST is intended as a "Jump-Start" for your annual pond treatment in the spring and as a means of compensating for seasonal spikes in nutrients and temperature during the ice-free season. BLAST should be used in combination with the AquaSpherePRO as a season long water treatment program.. Blast is recommended for the hard to treat, highly contaminated pond with large amounts of floating organic compost, sever odor, and poor water clarity.
- 3 lb box, 12 packets – treats up to 1,000,000 (1 million) gallons
- Weight: 3 lb.
- Package Dimensions: 5”W x 7”H x 8.5”D
- Calculate total gallons to be treated: Length x Width x Depth x 7.5 = Total Gallons
- Calculate number of bags needed to treat pond: Bags needed to treat = total gallons/125,000.
- Do not under treat water; over treating is safe and will yield optimal results.
- Toss the water soluble bags of BLAST, evenly throughout the water (near aeration when possible). Product will disperse as packets dissolve.
- BLAST can be reapplied every 5-7 days for desired water clarity and health.
- Dosage responses are variable.
- Use proactively to reduce problems with clarity and stagnation.
Microbial treatment in ponds with low oxygen levels, high water stagnation (no aeration), with high levels of organic matter AND containing high levels of fish populations run a risk of initiating fish death due to low water oxygen levels. It is recommended that ponds stocked with fish be tested for oxygen levels as well as having a source of aeration in the pond prior to treatment with microbials.
- Treatment with microbials requires oxygen to establish bioremediation.
- Bioverse’s microbial products are 100% natural, safe, and effective for fish if all ponds as there is enough oxygen for all the fish contained in that pond.
- Ponds with high fish levels should have mechanical aeration systems in place as treatment is started for improved results.
- Ponds with low oxygen levels should be treated with a water oxygenator prior to microbial application.
POND WATER FACTS:
- Low oxygen levels will produce localized fish death in any pond.
- High heat will decrease the oxygen levels in ponds (as water temperatures increase the oxygen levels will decrease).
- Ponds overstocked with fish will have lower oxygen levels than a pond that has no fish.
- Excess amounts of organic debris will lower water oxygen levels.
- Shallow ponds will always have lower water oxygen levels than ponds that are deeper.
