Bacterius® EQUINOX, Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria Treatment
Bacterius EQUINOX is a cold water treatment for spring and fall. Bacterius Equinox improves water quality in cold water, preserving the health and vitality of the animal and plant life in the pond. Benefits Our conditioner is composed of non-pathogenic bacteria selected and isolated for their capacity to decompose naturally and completely the organic materials present in water or muck. These bacteria produce hydrolytic enzymes in large quantities, that adapt and colonize easily in their new environment. Their rapid deployment in an aquatic environment ensures a dynamic balance between the generation and recycling of organic matter (mineralization). Bacterius® EQUINOX was developed to biodegrade cellulose material generated from dead leaves in autumn. Use Bacterius® EQUINOX for: Natural clarification of pond water Biodegrading the organic matter suspended in the water and in the sludge (from uneaten fish food, fish waste or plant residues) Decreasing the concentration of various elements used in fertilizers (nitrogen and phosphorus) Ensuring better control of floating algae in the water Minimizing the damage of winter anoxic shock (fish kills) Facilitating the spring recovery of the pond Maintaining the integrity of bacterial biofilms until spring Reducing odours due to anoxic conditions (H2S) What Happens to my Pond at the End of Autumn? Where we are in Quebec, when October comes to a close, the leaves begin to fall to the ground, the outside temperature approaches zero and the ecosystem of your pond is preparing itself for winter. Due to these external conditions, your pond will benefit from treatment of beneficial bacteria digesting the new inputs of organic material that would otherwise accumulate at the bottom of your pond. Bacterius® EQUINOX allows your pond to keep the biological balance during the winter. What happens to my Pond in Spring? In spring, when the snow melts, some nutrients available in the soil can easily end up in your pond via surface runoff. It is also the season in which strong odours caused by H2S, created over winter in low oxygen water by anaerobic bacteria, make their appearance. The water temperature is still far too cool for the bacteria naturally present in the ecosystem of your pond to work. Thankfully, there exist strains that have the same benefits and thrive in cooler water. Adding Bacterius® EQUINOX to your pond in spring allows the reduction of excess nutrients in the water and eliminates odours in cold water conditions. Technical Specifications Bacterius® EQUINOX rapidly colonizes in the muck and quickly prevents the proliferation of sulfate-reducing bacteria that are responsible for H2S and contribute to anoxic conditions. H2S is a toxic gas that causes unpleasant odours (rotten egg smell) and deterioration of bacterial biofilms. Contains only active bacterial strains, no filling agents are used. Exceptional Stability without chemical preservatives. Bacterial population entirely sporulated. Contains only bacterial strains tested and identified by the DNA sequencing method. MADE IN CANADA We guarantee that the product has been manufactured under strict quality control standards that ensure optimal product quality.

CanadianPond Concentrated Liquid Aquatic Dye
CanadianPond dyes have a super concentrated formulation to block UV rays from the sun that penetrate pond water and grow aquatic plants. Non-toxic and safe for the environment or users. One 946 ml bottle can treat a pond slightly larger than one acre. Benefits Adding an aquatic dye for lakes and ponds help filter out UV sunlight while creating an aesthetically pleasing appearance to the pond. Algae and submerged aquatic weeds need sunlight to grow, therefore by limiting the amount of UV light that enters the pond, you are dealing with one of the factors that contribute to algae growth and unwanted plant growth in your pond. CanadianPond liquid pond dye is commonly used by hotels, golf course, commercial premises and everyday pond owners. It will not stain birds, fish, plants, swimmers, pets, or wildlife when applied at the recommended rate. We have clients from coast to coast who use pond dyes as part of their regular pond maintenance regime. Apply early in spring when the ice leaves the pond. CanadianPond dye will immediately block the UV rays needed for many of those unwanted aquatic plants. Farmers in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan use our CanadianPond pond dyes in dugouts to keep them weed free. Pond owners from Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes combine the blue and black dyes to get a deeper colour that reflects light sharply and blocks the light needed for plant growth. By applying the dye regularly throughout the growing season, important stages in plant growth including reproduction and tuber development can be weakened. This is why we recommend regular dye applications even into the fall. Farm ponds, canals, reservoirs, tanks and drainage systems can be severely impeded with clogged aquatic weeds. An overabundance of unwanted aquatic weeds can impede flow and reduce the amount of water entering canals or critical drainage systems. Too many weeds can alter habitat and reduce indigenous fish species. They can also interfere with boat navigation and reduce aesthetic value. Repeated applications of CanadianPond AQUA or CanadianPond MIDNITE in closed systems will interfere with the reproduction cycle of many troublesome aquatic weeds. For best results, this product should be used with beneficial pond bacteria and lake bottom aeration. Often the weeds are there because there is an abundance of organic sediments and nutrients that make conditions for growth ideal. Filters sunlight and provides an aesthetically pleasing, natural appearance to pond water; Blocks up to 40% of the sun’s rays to effectively starve the growth of existing algae and formation of new growth; Keeps water temperature cooler; Contributes to algae and aquatic weeds reduction in garden ponds & small lakes; Technical Specifications One 32 oz ( 0.95 Litre) bottle will treat an entire surface acre (0.4046 ha) up to 6 feet (1.8 m) deep Available in black, blue and dark blue Super-concentrated formula (>84% pure pigments) Will not stain plants, pets, birds or swimmers when applied at the recommended rate. CanadianPond AQUA (previously MARINE), CanadianPond MIDNITE and CanadianPond NATURAL (previously Natural BLUE) are not harmful to the environment. Completely free of pesticides and herbicides. Harmless food based dye will not stain swimmers, fish, plants or other wildlife when used as directed. Easy to apply and lasts 4 to 6 weeks, depending on water flow; Can be mixed quickly and evenly throughout the pond with the use of a fountain, aerator or similar mechanical device. We guarantee that the product has been manufactured under strict quality control standards that ensure optimal product quality. Tech Sheet (PDF) SDS (PDF) Dosage and Application 1 bottle will treat will treat a pond with an area slightly larger than an acre (7 500 m³, 2 000 000 gallons). For best results, add to multiple spots around the edges of the pond or use in conjunction with aeration. Repeat monthly or as needed, as pigments will oxidize and gradually disappear. The dye will take 20 to 40 minutes to disperse, depending on the water circulation level. This product does not contain bacteria. Use CanadianPond 1B, 5B, C, N, POND or EQUINOX for sludge control and reducing nutrients. Avoid contact with eyes. Do not ingest. Keep out of reach of children. Reapply product as needed. Will stain clothing. Do not freeze. FOR A LARGE-SCALE USE, PLEASE CONSULT US.

Bacterius® MUCK, natural bacteria to digest muck
Canada’s #1 muck and sludge treatment for shoreline muck at cottages, marinas or beaches where deep muck is a problem. Benefits Concentrated bacterial pellets for treating shoreline Bacterius® MUCK is easy to apply and will sink to the surface of the sediment where they are needed most. You can also rake them inside the muck for faster results! Deals with specific locations, under docks and near piers. Ideal for beaches, chalet swimming areas and boat traffic channels. The treatment stays where you apply it, close to the shore! Easy to use, efficient and economical Helps control plant growth Testimonial of a satisfied customer : " We have a small pond which is surrounded by trees that is used for swimming in the summer. Over the years the bottom was increasingly covered in soft mud and some water weeds started to grow in the swimming area. In2020 we used a one time application of Bacterius Muck at the end of the swimming season and the following summer everyone commented on how much more clear the water was and how in the swimming area the bottom feltlike sand instead of muck. The fish and frog who live in the pond were still healthy and the swimming area was so much more enjoyable! The Bacterius Muck was very easy to apply in the areas where the treatment was needed and we are so pleased with the results we are repeating the treatment with Bacterius Muck again. Great product, great service! Thank you! " K. Smolynec Bolton ESt,Quebec Technical Specifications The granules are simply thrown onto the surface rich in sediment to be treated. Bacteria will start to consume the sometimes thick layer of organic sediment that makes swimming so unpleasant. Bacterius® MUCK stays where you applied it and works in situ, in direct contact with the sediment, rather than being diluted in the water column. Active in fresh and salt water. Once in contact with the sludge, the granules gradually dissolve and release the bacteria which feed on the organic sediment. Bacterius® MUCK also reduces sulphides and bad odors generated by sludge.The product is even more effective in the presence of bottom aeration. We recommend checking compliance with government authorities prior to use. Box content : 10Lbs box = 30 pouches / 25Lbs box = 75 Pouches Storage : Store in a cool, dry place. Protect from freezing. Safe for flora and fauna.Precautions : Direct contact with the skin may cause skin irritation. Gloves are recommended. Avoid contact with eyes. Do not ingest. Keep out of the reach of children. We guarantee that the product has been manufactured under strict quality control standards that ensure optimal product quality. Tech Sheet (PDF) SDS (PDF) Dosage and Application Easy to apply! Follow these simple steps for optimal results: 1. Make sure the water is 10°C/50 F or more. This product is more effective during the summer months (June to September) 2. To reduce product drift, make sure to do treatment on a calm day. 3. Calculate the proper dosage depending on the surface area to be treated : kg / 900 m² or 1 Lb /4 000 pi² 4. Toss the pellets evenly over the water surface. These will sink to the bottom in the water in the muck and begin to dissolve to release the bacteria. 5. Double the dosage for shock treatment. * Treatment should be done as needed. Although if a heavy muck accumulation has been identified, start with a treatment every 2 weeks and reduce to monthly once the accumulation of muck has reduced. * Aeration enhances the product performance, follow this link to see our aeration systems : Click here You have pictures of before and after?

Benthic barrier, Lake Bottom Blanket
Available in Canada, exclusively at CanadianPond.ca! The Lake Bottom Blanket is an easy-to-use aquatic tool for controlling invasive plants like the Eurasian Watermilfoil! Benefits Instant aquatic weed control - a simple system that anyone can implement. The purchase of the Lake Bottom Blanket will help you regain control of your pond or lake in no time at all. The Lake Bottom Blanket is made in America and is available in several sizes for a variety of applications. The principle is simple, here is how an aquatic cover works:1- Identify the area where the aquatic weeds must be controlled2- Install the Lake bottom Blanket barrier over the weeds3- The Lake bottom blanket creates a barrier between the sun and the aquatic weeds and therefore kills them by the absence of sunlight4- After 1 month you can either remove the barrier or move it to another location requiring weed control. It's that simple! Video available: * Please note that this barrier is to control the growth of invasive aquatic plants and not to protect the feet from the bottom of the water * Technical specifications After one month, the lake bottom cover can be removed or moved to a new area where plants are a problem. For example, you can install the Lake Bottom Blanket around May and remove it at the end of June, and have little or no weeds in that area for the rest of the summer! The Lake Bottom Blanket is shipped in a box without the necessary ballast frames. Ideally, 3/8" (10 mm) rebar should be used as the weight for the lake bottom blanket. 3/8" rebar is available at your local building supply store and most suppliers will cut it to your length. 3/8" rubber end caps are provided to cover the ends of the rebar to prevent damage or injury caused by possible sharp edges of the rebar. Please note: Hardware stores or renovation centers typically carry ½" (13 mm) rebar; buying this is not recommended for normal use of the blanket. Only 4 caps are included in the package for this size of rebar. This benthic barrier that acts like an aqua screen or burlap and can be removed annually as needed with minimal effort. It is reusable for many years. Weights and recommendations for reinforcing bars (REBAR) Local purchase - 3/8'' (10 mm) rebars cut into 10-foot lengths LBB20 (10 ′ x 20 ′) - Requires 5 bars LBB30 (10 ′ x 30 ′) - Requires 7 bars LBB40 (10 ′ x 40 ′) - Requires 9 bars LBB50 (10 ′ x 50 ′) - Requires 11 bars If your installation requires more weight, only the first and last tubes will accommodate ½ inch rebar and for this purpose 4 x ½ inch caps are included. All the other caps included in the box are the standard 3/8 inch for the 3/8 in rebar rods. Warranty : 1 year coverage on manufacturing defects Tech Sheet (PDF) Installation The Lake Bottom Blanket is easily installed in the water if the water weed beds are either in the dormant stage or at any time during the growing season, but it is easier to set up when it is installed before weeds emerge from the water surface. Blankets are 10 feet 9 inches (326 cm) wide regardless of the length required by the customer - normally 40 feet (12.2 m). Blankets are shipped folded without ballast. The float provided is designed to (A) keep boats that may disturb the blanket away and (B) locate the Lake Bottom Blanket's grab or travel handle. The first step is to purchase the 10-foot lengths of 3/8 in (10 mm) rebar. Remove the vinyl caps from the blanket package and place them on the ends of the rebar. Unfold the blanket to its full width; you will see clips holding the plastic layers together; you will also see the ends of the tubes aligned side by side. One end of the tubes is sewn closed; find the open ends of the tubes; insert the rebar into the tubes. You will find a zipper on the open ends of each tube. Once the bar is fully inserted, lock it by tightening the tie onto the material; then cut off the free end of the tie. Place the assembled pleated ribs on the stern of a boat with the plastic over the edge. Attach the two handling lines to the handles of the cover. The line for the end of the shoreline (indicated by the red tape) can be attached with a loop so that it can be easily detached after the blanket is deployed. Remove the clips. The shoreline end must be attached to the outer rib, is attached to the shoreline or held by a person on shore. The offshore line can be attached to the boat or held by an assistant. Release the outermost rib into the water at the shore end of the intended installation. (The ideal water depth is at least 3 feet - the depth may be less if there is assurance that there is no activity in the coverage area). Move the boat away from the shoreline. Coverage will take place. It will probably take a few minutes for the entire blanket to settle below the surface of the water. When the last shoreline is overboard in the water, using the line attached to the rope handle, pull the blanket reasonably tight before releasing the last shoreline at the bottom of the lake. Attach the warning float to the line, positioning it so that it remains close to the edge of the blanket. Once the blanket is installed, gently pull the blanket toward the shoreline, stretching the blanket reasonably tight again. The shore side can be disconnected or attached to a shore support. Tying the rope to the shoreline is especially important when aggressive wave action is possible. Note 1: In a deep water installation from shore, it is preferable to use two boats with two people on at least one of the boats. Note 2: The intention is that the blanket should be deployed perpendicular to the shoreline - not parallel, as wave action can move or dislodge it and anyone walking in the water can trip over it.Video available from the manufacturer.

Kasco Marine Impeller De-Icers
Protect your docks, boats and submerged structures with a Kasco Marine de-icer. Benefits Kasco Marine de-icers, also known as circulators or agitators, are available at CanadianPond.ca, your Kasco Marine dealer in Canada. Winter ice can damage your dock to the point of complete destruction. The thicker the ice gets, the more it also expands. This can literally destroy your dock. When the water level in a lake changes in the winter, the ice surrounding your posts can tear them off the sea floor. The ice clinging to the structure shows how securely the expanding ice was attached. Kasco Marine de-icers are specially designed to be suspended from a dock or boat to prevent damage caused by ice expansion and water level variations. This animated video illustrates two of the ways you can position your de-icer. Kasco de-icers use a propeller system that creates a vertical or horizontal movement of water to prevent ice from forming near docks, boat shelters and shorelines. The de-icer performs by moving warmer, denser water upward from the bottom of the pond or lake and circulates the water upward to the surface and sideways creating an agitation that reduces or eliminates ice build-up creating a large ice-free surface. Installation with a horizontal float or with a universal dock mount are options that allow you to precisely direct the movement of the water to strategically and precisely de-ice a particular structure. Ideal for fresh or salt water applications. How to choose your deicer Choosing the right de-icer is easy, refer to the ice opening chart (pdf) to find the best model and application kit for your needs. If Kasco de-icers do not meet your needs, visit the Thawline Linear De-Icers page. All Kasco de-icers are also available in 240V and/or 50 Hertz for the European market, call us for more information.Kasco Marine De-Icing Chart (PDF) Timers & Control Box Options Controlling your Kasco Marine de-icer with a thermostat or timer is a great way to save energy and extend the life of your de-icer by operating it only when needed. The C-10 Thermostat allows you to determine an accurate temperature under which your unit starts.The C20 Thermostat and Timer Control Unit combines the schedule of the day with the temperature at which you want your de-icer to operate. Technical Specifications Suspension ropes - Braided polypropylene yarns. 20′ x 5/16″, 2 lengths included. Galvanized steel protection cage - Propeller protection. Vinyl coated for easy handling. High quality propeller - Specially designed for maximum whirl at minimum energy cost. Power cable - 25 feet of submersible power cable that remains flexible in the air despite temperatures as low as -45ºC (-50ºF). Waterproof connections for ease of installation and handling. Longer lengths are available as an option. Zinc Anode - Changeable anode protecting against electrolytic corrosion. (The anode must be checked annually and replaced if necessary to ensure warranty coverage). Seals - Double seal system to prevent oil leakage from the engine. Shaft - Series #316 stainless steel, suitable for salt water. Ball Bearing - Ball bearing lubricated in oil for better heat dissipation. Oil - The oil used allows for limited maintenance, increased heat dissipation and better protection against moisture. Motor - Standard design, 120V single-phase direct current, oil-immersed, overload-protected motor with automatic circuit breaker. Capacitor - The capacitor ensures proper starting and operation of the motor. Motor housing - Stainless steel, corrosion resistant, saltwater compatible. 2 year warranty Check with local authorities to ensure that the addition of icebreakers is permitted in your municipality. The de-icing area should be well marked with a sign to warn all persons of the hazard. To be used with all types of de-icing systems. Tech Sheet (PDF) Owner's Manual (PDF) Maintenance of Kasco Marine Units (PDF) Installation Suspension with ropes - Vertical position - For de-icing in a circle shape All Kasco de-icers include 2 x 20-foot ropes to suspend the de-icer under the dock or boat. These ropes are included in the de-icer box. Hang the system vertically on either side of the structure at a depth of 4 to 5 feet from the water surface. A vertical installation produces a circular de-iced surface. Another possibility is to attach the de-icer to each side of the boat with the suspension ropes so that the de-icer follows the tide or water level. Horizontal float mount – Horizontal position – Produces long elongated pattern when no dock is available You can also use the optional horizontal float set to create an elongated ice free space. The de-icer installed under the horizontal float can be positioned at different angles for added versatility. Ideal for : Shallow water Places where there are water level fluctuations such as: a tide or in a large lake where the waves are high. Sites to be de-iced where there are no docks or structures. Installation with universal dock support - Angled position - For elongated de-icing The Universal Dock Support is made from thermal plastic components, corrosion protected steel and stainless steel to withstand the worst marine conditions. A stainless steel rod of 1″ diameter and 10 feet in length must be supplied by the purchaser to attach the de-icer and dock and structure mounting kit. With the new Easy Lock handle, adjustments in the water are child's play.This option is ideal for creating an angle at the de-icer. It gives a very good precision of the surfaces to be de-iced. It is often easier to de-ice a boat by installing the de-icer at the bow and angling it towards the stern of the boat. If the water movement is directed towards the shore or a retaining wall, the water current will be directed on each side of the shore or wall to create a "T" shaped de-icing section. Industrial Dock Mount Kasco's industrial dock support, made of corrosion-resistant metal, requires 1.5" I.D. stainless steel pipe threaded at both ends and measuring a maximum of 10 feet (not included). It is manufactured to meet the most stringent environmental requirements. Moreover, thanks to its unique design, you can easily modify the angle, depth and positioning of the de-icer.

The nitrifying bacteria in Bacterius® N can quickly oxidize ammonia and nitrites into a non-toxic nitrogen compound, clearing your water at the same time. Works best when water is 15° Celsius or warmer. Benefits Features a high-biomass, high-performance nitrifying bacteria consortium Specifically to eliminate ammonia and nitrites in aquatic ecosystems Actively oxidizes ammonia and nitrites, neutralizing their toxic effect on the aquatic life Helps maintain a balanced aquatic ecosystem Contributes positively to the health of aquatic animals and plant life Reduces the risk of sickness and death among fish and plants Technical Specifications The intake of nitrifying bacteria is justified because of the intense biological activity, the decomposition of plant residues and the accumulation of droppings and uneaten fish food and ammonia which tends to accumulate rapidly in closed or semi-open aquatic environments. It remains imperative to prevent this accumulation because ammonia is a chemical compound extremely toxic to any aquatic environment.The nitrifying bacteria found in Bacterius® N have the ability to rapidly oxidize ammonia and nitrites to a non-toxic nitrogen compound. Using Bacterius® N in aquatic environments is beneficial and provides an effective solution for regulating nitrogen compounds.

Bacterius® 1B, Dry Concentrated Beneficial Bacteria
Our Bacterius® 1B product is effective in removing organic matter that causes water quality problems. Reduces odors and cloudy water associated with various types of organic waste that accumulate in lakes and ponds. And all in a soluble format for easy dosing! Benefits Bacterius® 1B boxes contain small, pre-measured packets of lyophilized (freeze-dried) natural bacteria. Bacterius® 1B reduces the accumulation of decaying plants, grass clippings, leaves, fish waste and other organic materials and helps: Control algae growth Improve water clarity Provide odor control Reduce bottom sludge Control problematic nutrients that promotes algae growth Reduce ammonia, nitrates, nitrites and phosphates Enhance the aquatic environment Technical specifications Bacterius® 1B is packaged in pre-measured water-soluble packets, to allow for easy dosing and easy application. Bacterius® 1B natural bacteria dry formulation consists of billions of microbial cultures made up of beneficial bacterial strains specifically chosen to reduce ammonia levels, nitrates, algae and bottom sludge consisting of both cellulose and lignin components from dead and decaying algae and vegetation. Effective treatment to remove organic matter that causes water clarity problems. Reduces the odor and murky water associated with various types of accumulated organic wastes in lakes and ponds. From water gardens, to basins containing koi and/or goldfish, to lakes and ponds, Bacterius® 1B is a very affordable treatment to help preserve good water quality. Its unique composition merges various bacterial strains, allowing for an affordable and effective treatment. These bacteria present no danger to your fish, other animals or any human beings. In bodies of water, the accumulation of dead plants and animal waste forms an organic layer that reduces the available oxygen through decomposition and discharges pollutants, such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S), into the water. In some cases, the loss of oxygen can be so pervasive as to cause massive deaths in fish populations. The stress caused by low water quality can also reduce the fish's growth and make them more sensitive to disease. The micro-organisms contained in Bacterius® 1B feed on the waste produced by the plants and animals in the water body. The by-products caused by this natural transformation are carbon dioxyde, water and a protein-rich biomass of bacteria. Fish and invertebrates, such as zooplankton, snails, crayfish and other members of their respective families, all feed on this bacterial biomass. The waste produced by Bacterius® 1B becomes a natural source of food for fish and other aquatic fauna. With a billion bacteria per gram, mixed with barley staw, Bacterius® 1B is highly popular among lake, pond and water garden owners. It is a very good tool in helping aquatic ecosystems naturally. Box content : 10Lbs box = 30 pouches / 25Lbs box = 75 Pouches Living product: avoid freezing and humidity exposure.FOR A LARGE-SCALE USE, PLEASE CONSULT US.

Tech Sheet (PDF)SDS (PDF) Dosage and Application Dosage Weekly dosage varies depending on the application, the fish and plant density and the amount of organic matter. Conditions needed: +10 °C / 50° F, pH 5 – 9 Dosage small ponds & water gardens: 1 pouch/200 m² (2000 ft²)Dosage large ponds and lakes: 1 pouch/400 m² (4000 ft²) Application of dry bacteria Bacterius® pond bacteria products come in soluble pouches that are thrown into your pond. They work best when they are tossed near your aeration system, floating fountain or in-flowing water source or cascade. The movement of the water helps “steep” the bacterial pouch, much in the way a tea-bag is helped to release its content by adding gentle agitation. If there is little to no surface movement or aeration system, the pouches should be cut open and mixed in a bucket with pond water and then splashed uniformly across the pond surface in much the same way liquid bacteria is administered. If you do not have an aeration system or any other area of consistently flowing water, it is best to apply your bacteria in windy conditions. The wind will helps disperse your bacteria and give your pond some more oxygen for them to breathe. Sometimes, the easiest solution can be to simply throw the pouches on the water's surface and let nature do the rest. What's most important is not the way in which you administer the dosage, but the regularity at which it is applied! If your pond is already infested with algae and has poor water quality, an initial “shock treatment” (double dose) of a high dose of bacteria should be done, followed by a treatment the following week and then a treatment every two or three weeks depending on the results obtained. A pond which is beginning to show the initial problems inherent with murky water and algae growth, but has not yet progressed to an alarming state of eutrophication requires a milder initial treatment, followed by a maintenance dose. For ponds and water gardens that are relatively healthy a low maintenance dose is added on a two or three-week program depending on environmental factors and achieved results, to prevent any nasty surprises. Either way, every pond is different and their treatments must be adapted to the results observed after their first applications as well as to the urgency in fixing the problem. NOTE: Bacterius® is composed of natural bacteria, that were especially created to restore and maintain the quality of water-based ecosystems. The bacterial content of Bacterius® did not undergo any genetic engineering; they are 100% natural and exist naturally in the earth, air and water. The principal effectiveness of these bacteria lies in their ability to secrete enzymes which degrade organic matter and help clarify pond water. The bacterial stocks are absolutely without danger to the environment, plants, people and animals. Information appearing in this website does not constitute in any way a guarantee of performance. Each case is different and dependent on a myriad of environmental and ecological factors. We assume no responsibility for the misuse of this product.

CanadianPond Dry Aquatic Dye
CanadianPond Aquatic Dye in dry soluble packets is a highly concentrated dye that blocks UV rays entering the water to reduce the growth of submerged aquatic plants. Safe for the environment and ideal for treating large ponds and lakes. Each 4oz soluble packets can treat an area slightly smaller than one acre. Benefits Pond dye helps block UV rays that enter a pond. It is the UV rays that go deep into a pond providing light for photosynthesis required for plant and algae growth. When we use a pond dye, we block some of that light, helping control growth of some algae and some unwanted submerged aquatic plants. Filters sunlight and provides an aesthetically pleasing, natural appearance to pond water; Keeps water temperature cooler; Blocks up to 40% of the sun’s rays to effectively starve the growth of existing algae and formation of new growth; Contributes to algae and aquatic weeds reduction in garden ponds & small lakes; Easy to apply and lasts 4 to 6 weeks depending on water flow. Technical specifications With our CanadianPond NATURAL Aquatic Dye, we carefully chose shades of blue and grey, with a touch of black, to give the effect of deep, cool water, that is highly reflective of UV rays while appearing as natural looking as possible. Think of a deep, cool lake that you would find in the Canadian Shield, and recall how the light reflects off the water surface, onto the moss covered Canadian Shield: this is the effect that CanadianPond NATURAL Dye can have in your pond. Double bagged with water soluble pouches, simply toss as is! Available only in a dark natural blue colour; Super-concentrated formula (>84% pure pigments); Will not stain plants, pets, birds or swimmers when applied at the recommended rate; CanadianPond NATURAL Dye is not harmful to the environment; Completely free of pesticides and herbicides.
