Proven, powerful water cleaning formula in a refillable dispenser. Our All-Purpose Water Cleaner 2500 is perfect for fountains, small ponds and water features. The naturally sourced bacteria is 100% safe for people, pets, plants, fish, and amphibians. Simpy remove the treatment pouch from the plastic bag, drop it into the dispenser and place it where it will be covered in water. The patented slow release bacteria goes to work breaking down the excess organic material in the entire water column, cleaning and clarifying the water while reducing bottom sludge and muck. Comes complete with 2 refill packs. Replace the treatment pack every 30 days through out the ice-free season. Expended treatment packs can be placed in compost. Results usually visible in 45 days.
- Treats water from 0 gallons up to2,500 gallons.
- You cannot over treat water but under treating may not yield desired results.
- Weight: 300 grams.
1. Calculate the total gallons in the pond or area to be treated.
( Length x Width x Depth x 7.5 = Total Gallons)
2. Calculate the size of dispenser needed.
FOR BEST RESULTS:
1. Use in self-contained ponds and retention areas.
2. Keep Healthy Ponds products and refills dry until pond application.
3. Do not use with chemicals or algaecides.
4. Use the proper dose; based on calculated number of required spheres.
5. Treat water over 45°F and under 110°F.
6. Replace each sphere every 30 days.
Ponds with low oxygen levels, stagnated water (no aeration), high levels of organic matter AND high fish populations are at risk of fish kills 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 microbes.
- Treatment with microbes requires oxygen to establish bio-remeditation.
- Microbe treatments can initially reduce the dissolved oxygen levels in a water body as the bio-remediation establishes.
- Arbourdale’s microbial products are 100% natural, safe, and effective for fish if all ponds where there is enough oxygen for all the fish contained in that pond.
- Ponds with high fish levels should always include mechanical aeration systems in place as treatment is started for improved results.
- Ponds with low oxygen levels should be treated with aeration 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 of similar surface area but deeper water.
