The natural, biological way to revive your pond.
The use of Pond-Vive beneficial pond bacteria has proven to be one of the best tools, along with aeration, that a pond owner can use to maintain water quality. Beneficial bacteria help to consume and digest decaying organic material. When left in a pond this decaying material will contribute to water quality problems and increased sludge (muck) on the pond bottom. Regular use of Pond-Vive beneficial bacteria will help improve water quality and overall enjoyment of your pond.
This special blend of enzyme producing bacteria is designed to:
Reduce sludge buildup
Eliminate pond odors
Improve water clarity
Reduce oxygen demand
Eliminate excess nutrients
Pond-Vive Premium formula includes:
Concentration level of 5 billion colony forming units per gram
Growth nutrient to stimulate bacteria
Enzymes which break down waste to more digestible form for the bacteria – speeds up the process!
Cold water bacteria for results in temperatures as low as 38°F
Pulverized barley straw additive
Directions for Use
For best results use when temperatures are above 55° F. Apply 4 to 6 lbs. (eight to twelve packets) per surface acre every two weeks. Water soluble packets are simply tossed into the pond where they will dissolve after a few minutes. Use the higher dosage on older ponds or ponds higher levels of sludge/muck. An initial application should be doubled to jump start the process.
Avoid using copper based algaecides for 48 hours within application of Pond-Vive.
Examples of Dosage Rates:
Newer ponds with little "muck" - apply 4 lbs per surface area/2 weeks
Older ponds with little "muck" - apply 6 lbs per surface area/2 weeks
For best results, the initial application should be doubled to jump start the process.
A 10 lb container treats approximately 1/4 acre for 5 months.
