    Bacterius® 1B reduces the accumulation of decaying plants, grass clippings, leaves, fish wastes and other organic materials and so helps:

    • Controls algae growth
    • Improves water clarity
    • Provides odor control
    • Reduces bottom sludge
    • Controls problematic nutrients that promotes algae growth
    • Reduces ammonia, nitrates, nitrites and phosphates
    • Enhances the aquatic environment

    Bacterius® 1B contains Canadian blends of beneficial bacteria grown in concentrations to improve the health of your pond.

    Treating your pond with Bacterius® 1B creates conditions that will reduce dissolved organic carbon and organic sediments. It will improve water clarity, reduce odours, reduce organic bottom-sludge (muck) and enhance the aquatic environment naturally.

    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 of 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.

    Application of dry bacteria

    Bacterius® pond bacteria products come in soluble pouches that are thrown into the pond. They work best when they are tossed near the aeration system, floating fountain or in-flowing water source or cascade. The movement of the water helps “steep” the bacterial pouch much the way a tea-bag is helped to release its content by adding gentle agitation. If there is little or no surface movement or aeration system the pouches should be cut open and mixed with pond water and then splashed across the pond surface much the same way liquid bacteria is administered.

    If your pond is already infested with algae and poor water quality an initial “shock treatment” (double dose) of a high dose of bacteria is added 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.

    NOTE: Bacterius® is composed of natural bacteria, whose was 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 do 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.
