As ponds and lakes age, sediment can build up and your water can become very murky. Whether the sediment is naturally occuring from decaying vegetation, fish waste, natural runoff or introduced from human activity, it can become problematic in an aquatic environment. This accumulation of sediment, or muck, can have multiple negative affects. Increased algae blooms, vegetation growth and turbid or murky water just to name a few. With higher levels of organic and nutrient waste in a water body aquatic vegetation can become very problematic, to the point where it will deter the recreational usage of the pond or lake. Water clarity can become reduced to little or none, and aquatic vegetation can become difficult to manage with traditional methods.
The build up of sediment or muck can be compared to garden compost. It is very nutrient rich, almost working as a fertilizer for your pond, something that is not welcomed in a recreational water body.
By reducing the amount of sediment in a water body with our pond water clarifying products, you will turn back time and rejuvinate the life cycle of the pond or lake.
