  • 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.

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.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. 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?

  • 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; 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.

  • 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.  Tech Sheet (PDF) SDS (PDF)   Dosage and Application 1 soluble pouch will treat 2 500 m³ (slightly smaller than 1 acre pond with a dept of approx 6 ft deep) Doubled dry soluble (corn based) pouches; simply toss into pond or lake and within 1-2 hours the water body will be colored.

  • 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.   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.
