Pond Cleanse is all natural beneficial bacteria packets for cleaning pond water. Murky water is commonly caused by suspended organic debris and algae-causing nutrients from fish waste, runoff from farm fields and debris from surrounding trees. This strain of beneficial bacteria breaks down excess nutrients in water. Our formula also contains barley straw and cool water bacteria to allow treatments to be effective in water as low as 38°F.

If clarity is not a concern in my pond, why should I use Pond Cleanse?

Pond Cleanse is meant for more than just water clarity. It actually has a FAR GREATER JOB. Pond Cleanse breaks down unwanted nutrients in pond water. You can't SEE these nutrients. Nutrients come from fish, fish food, fertilizer, dead vegetation, and even ground water. Besides triggering algae blooms, these nutrients can be harmful to fish. Pond Cleanse helps to manage these nutrients.

Pond Cleanse Application:

Treat every 2 weeks when water temperature is above 38°F. Toss in 2 packets per 1/4 acre or 8 packets per acre. Packets will quickly dissolve in water. Do not use on same day as chemical treatment. Chemical treatments kill beneficial bacteria.

Does Pond Cleanse kill algae in my pond?

Pond Cleanse breaks down nutrients that triggers algae blooms. Breaking down these nutrients starves the algae of a necessary food source. Over time Pond Cleanse helps to limit/reduce the number of algae blooms in the pond. Because Pond Cleanse is a natural treatment, algae bloom reduction does take time. For immediate results consider Cutrine Granular.

What is the best time of year to treat with Pond Cleanse?

Pond Cleanse is a blend of cold water and warm water bacterias. It is ideal to treat every 2 weeks while water temperature is above 38 degrees.

How do I know if my pond contains bad nutrients?

The best way to tell if you have elevated levels of nutrients is to have your water tested. Natural Waterscapes offers a water testing service that provides you with your water quality results, as well as a full report to understand these findings.

Why does Pond Cleanse work better in a well aerated pond?

Pond Cleanse is comprised of aerobic bacteria, aka oxygen loving bacteria. When water is properly aerated the bacterias perform at their greatest potential. Aeration also provides greater circulation, so the Pond Cleanse can distribute throughout the entire pond. 

What is in Pond Cleanse?

Pond Cleanse is a blend of beneficial bacteria, enzymes, and barley. Our bacteria contains 5 billion colony forming units per gram. 

Can Pond Cleanse be used at the same time as Muck Remover?

Yes! We recommend using both products at the same time every two weeks. Pond Cleanse is most effective at cleaning the pond water, whereas the Muck Remover targets the bottom muck most effectively.
