Product Description

Microbe-Lift Sludge Away is an all natural treatment for the removal of organic waste matter found at the pond bottom, commonly referred to as sludge or muck. Containing cellular matter, special microbes, and specific biological accelerators, this product is proven to be effective at increasing pond muck digestion while reducing ammonia and nitrate levels. Microbe-Lift SA helps promote a balanced pond ecosystem, stabilizing pH levels to eliminate a potential pond system crash.

How to use:

Best when used in water temperatures above 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

Water temperatures above 85 degrees Fahrenheit should receive additional aeration. With the increase in biological activity, the need for respiration will increase and to reduce any risk of low dissolved oxygen levels, supplemental oxygenation is highly recommended.
