Keeping your aquarium, pond or lake healthy requires some added nutrients
and beneficial elements to allow the healthy balance to be maintained
in the water. A healthy balance in any ecosystem requires a bit of
assistance from time to time and this is when adding a full spectrum
pond conditioner can help reverse the damaging effects that can cause
green waters, fish kills, algae or actual odors in aquariums and ponds
We have tested
many so-called "all-encompassing" pond treatments but have
found many lacking in performance. The Liquid is one of
the most satisfying and comprehensive pond, lake and aquarium water
conditioners on the market that we have tested in the last 15 years.
People have asked us if they should be adding chlorine to a fish pond,
of they should pour bleach into the waterfall to kill algae, the old
wives tales abound when it comes to maintaining a healthy pond but
the reason we like to use is that it does what it says
and in a very cost effective way! I'm like many of you who are looking
for a cheap or homemade algae killer for my pond...well I've gone
to New Mexico and back and haven't found the product that compares
to this PK Liquid water conditioner.
Adding the recommended
dosages of Liquid, will combat a series of typical pond problems
in fish tanks, water gardens, pond and large lakes. .
This is one of
the most comprehensive water conditioners on the market today and
offers complete water conditioning of fish ponds, water gardens
and aquariums. All-In-One Water Conditioner does what would normally
take several products to accomplish such as:
Remove chlorine and destroy chloramines
Detoxifies heavy metals
Adds essential electrolytes
Replaces skin slime coat
Reduces fish stress
Removes ammonia and nitrites
All-In-One Water Conditioner is not a medication, chemotherapeutic
agent or economic poison. It should be applied with regular water
changes or when new water is added to maximize the dechlorinator
benefits.This formulation is compatible with most other water conditioners
and antibiotics, along with beneficial bacteria. It is not compatible
with strong oxidizing agents and should not be used with unchelated
copper medication as it will inactivate the free copper.

All Natural Treatments For Ponds, Wastewater Basins, Lakes and Fish
I have been a fan of Bacta-Pur® liquid bacteria ever since I
visited some pond managers who had tremendous results treating their
ponds with the range of natural cultures from Bacta-Pur®. I
visited a golf course in South Carolina who had been treating their
water hazards with the product called Bacta-PUR® Pond to reduce
the algae growth they had been seeing year after year.
The product contains a natural, and safe for people and all life
forms, mixture of 12 strains of natural bacteria that helps to solubolize
organic deposits and actually breaks down sludge and pond and lake
waste products into natural fish food!
Unlike those harmful algaecides or chemical treatments, using the
environmentally friendly beneficial bacteria is a way to actually
holistically regenerate and rejuvenate ponds and lakes!
of application include:
Wastewater treatment (domestic, municipal,
Water body restoration and water quality improvement - reversal
of eutrophication from lakes and bays to farm, golf and garden ponds
Fresh and salt water aquaculture - increasing survival, growth,
feed conversion efficiency and sustainability, from ponds and raceways
to sea food holding systems.
The IET-Aquaresearch Ltd multidisciplinary team has decades of both
practical and technical expertise in wastewater treatment, aquaculture,
water body restoration, ecological engineering, industrial fermentation
and microbial ecology. Understanding the processes involved in these
different fields is one of our strengths. We provide the technical
support essential to attaining the desired results cost-effectively
and with respect for the environment. Technology transfer across
different fields of activity is ongoing and is a key to successful
use of the Bacta-Pur® System.
water quality, reduces ammonia and nitrates, helps control algae
naturally & removes pond muck, shock-treatment and cold water
treatments. I have used and seen used the liquid bacteria
called Bacta-PUR® ever since I became a believer after seeing
that golf-course. When I did a little research into this Canadian
company who actually "creates" this incredible safe liquid
pond bacteria I came to understand that this International Company
known as IET-Aquaresearch LTD, based in Canada with offices in Europe,
has become one of the most prestigious and premier suppliers of
Government Approved cultures for pond remediation in North America
and surely throughout the world.

Bacta-Pur® Pond Use
Concentrated All Season Liquid PV
Bacta-Pur® POND is what I like to use as a mixture between XLG
and N-3000, or better yet...it is the best of both worlds that uses
the denitrification properties of N-3000 plus the sludge and muck
devouring properties of XLG to create one exceptional pond bacteria.
This is the standard bacteria I recommend for most ponds or private
lakes. It's a good product that has passed several reviews and has
the references to back-up the claims of effectiveness.
A proprietary mixture of 12 strains of bacteria to help maintain clarity
of water to the strict secchi disc parameters as well as the ability
to solubolize organic sediments and, waste products, sediment and
sludge and turn them into fish food basically! This product is recommended
for ponds and lakes from 8,000 gallons to 30 acres. Please ask us
for dosages and application rates as the rate of application for pond
bacteria is not always a consistent ratio with large water bodies!
Concentrated Lake Bacteria
Bacta-Pur® XLG contains 16 strains of natural, pathogen-free bacteria
specifically designed for decomposing organic sediments in ponds.
This is what we often call muck or sludge. The voracious organic bacteria
in XLG literally consume all organic materials in ponds and are a
key tool when we are attempting to reestablish depth in a pond that
has an unwanted accumulation of muck and smelly sludge at the bottom.
Bacta-Pur® XLG is an ideal bacteria in colder waters and we often
use it in tandem with a dry bacteria that has certain temperature
parameters that must be respected because the XLG can be added to
any water body at any temperature as long as there is not any ice
covering the pond.
treat the ponds I am taking care of with a dosage of XLG in the Autumn
and in the Spring. In a way a pond is like a swimming pool because
shock treatment at the beginning and end of the season is a really
good idea. We would never use chlorine to treat algae or muck in a
pond because it can be toxic to life but the use of a natural bacteria
can only help in restore the cycle of life because the consumption
of nutrients and elements by the bacteria create food for fish, insects
When you are doing an end of season cold-water treatment with the
XLG to help remove leaves that have fallen in to the pond or lake
I recommend about 2 gallons for every surface acre of the XLG followed
by another treatment two or three weeks later. So if you have a pond
of 1 acre I would treat with 2 gallons as soon as the water temperature
reaches 40 degrees Fahrenheit or around 5 degrees Celsius and then
follow up with an equal application two or 3 weeks later.
This regime would be repeated in the Spring. As soon as the ice has
gone, if you have ice in your location, do a shock-treatment with
2 gallons per surface acre. Follow the initial treatment with an equal-size
application in two weeks. This is an ideal shock treatment! The cultures
in this natural pond bacteria do an incredible job of keeping waters
clear and reducing the muck buildup at the bottom. This is the bacteria
that has been so successful in doing what they call "bio-dredging"
where the use of microbes has replaced the mechanical digging and
removal of pond and lake sediments. This bacterial mixture comes with
activators which should be added, mixed and activated according to
the directions. If you have any questions on the application of liquid
bacteria please email us.
Bacta-Pur® Sludgebusters is effective at biodegrading waste and
sludge waste buildups that accumulate on the bottom of ponds, water-gardens
and lakes. The sludge layer, which can have a sulfur smell or a thick
rancid odor like a musty organic fart, can result from a buildup of
fish food that has been uneaten by koi or trout or any fish as well
as leaves from trees that lose their leaves after the Autumn Solstice.
This decomposing waste material from uneaten food, leaves and fish
and bird poop can accumulate and turn into a black thick sludge that
can cause the clogging of pumps, filters and pond pumps! These decomposing
nutrients and resulting chemical buildups can produce noxious odors
and even toxic gases that could cause fish-kills or other problems!
Using Bacta-Pur Sludgebusters will enable you to biodegrade these
wastes and compounds which, when used properly and regularly, will
result in less pollution, less ammonia, stress and diseases!
know that there are two common forms of algae that are bound to show
their mucky green faces at one time or another in the life of a pond.
Often a pond will suffer bouts with algae many times during a season.
While there are chemicals to help knockdown algae my approach is to
use natural methods of algae control.
Bacta-Pur® N3000 Use a specialized
Bacta-Pur® N3000 is the ultimate mixture of 12 strains of bacteria
for nitrite and ammonia removal. The effective liquid is renowned
for nitrate reduction (denitrification) as well as complete nitrite
removal (nitrification). This clean mixture accelerates the startup
of biofilters and of course one of the benefits we love beside the
reduction of ammonia is reduced nitrite accumulation!
