Macro-Zyme Beneficial Bacteria in an easy-to-use, water-soluble product that contain no harmful chemicals or bacteria and is the safest method to treat the organic materials in your pond or lake that can cause algae, green water, and unpleasant smells. Macro-Zyme is made of a high concentration of facultative anaerobic bacteria that will reproduce in your pond upon application and then consume the organic muck.
The muck or sludge that builds in your pond is caused by a natural process of decaying plant matter, leaves and bird and fish waste! When the levels of organic muck gets too rich, your pond will encourage algae growth, green water, and the oxygenation level for your fish and plants is greatly reduced. The high concentration of beneficial bacteria in Macro-Zyme will go to work digesting carbons, fats, starches, proteins, and cellulose materials cleaning the pond, clarifying the water and improving the smell.
Macro-Zyme is safe for wildlife, fish, turtles, pets and people! It is the perfect choice for the control and elimination of sludge and foul odors in tanks, ponds, and lakes. Available in a variety sizes and has a shelf life of 2 years! This product can also be used to charge compost piles with bacteria to accelerate the conversion of garden waste to nutrient rich compost for your garden.
Used by professionals since 1991, this concentrated formula was the first to introduce a pond or lake maintenance program that utilizes all natural bacteria and enzymes to rapidly biodegrade floating and bottom sludge. Macro-Zyme will also reduce nitrates and phosphates.
