Pond Sealant

Soilfloc® Sealant is the best polymer based sealant available for your canal, irrigation ditch or watering hole. Specifically designed to find leaks, whether in the floor, the wall or through rock formations and seal them. Soilfloc® custom blends linear and cross-linked polymers to seal any type of soil, for any sized project.

Muck Remover
The biological removal of muck and sludge from ponds, lakes and canals is an ecological way to eliminate organic sediments from ruining shorelines and making swimming impossible. Safe muck eating bacteria are blended from anaerobic bacterial mixtures and enzymes that specifically target the thick, black, stinky muck that is common in ponds and lakes.

Dock Bubblers
Bubbler systems use perforated tubing placed at the bottom of the water around a boathouse, dock or wall. When using diffuser lines to protect your dock from ice damage there will be some fairly common installation procedures: place the air compressor in a ventilated cabinet or shed and run an airline to the structure where a weighted bubbler hose is placed at strategic points around the dock or against the wall.

Hello,

The dust and mud and particles that were on the rocks will be suspended in the pond water for a while but should eventually settle out with time. It is always a good idea to rinse off any rocks that are being put into a pond to remove any dust and material on the rocks that can cloud the water.

If you have a mechanical type of filter in the pond as well it will speed up the removal of the sediments and you will likely need to do several cleanings of the pond filter as it will start to fill up quickly with the sediments and mud.

There is a pond water clarity additive you could add. The liquid flocculant is added at a rate of one ounce per 1000 gallons and it binds the particles together so they quickly sink and clear the water.

We recommend :

Accu-Clear Pond Water Clarifier by API

or

RapiClear by Crystal Clear
