A healthy lake is clear, odor free, and has a balance of wildlife and plants. A lake in distress is often lacking in the necessary bacteria and enzymes to breakdown the organic materials that enter the water, and has nutrient levels that are too high or too low. The Micro-Lyfe family of biological pond and lake products were developed to restore your lakes biology and bring it back to a healthy balance.
Does light penetrate all the way to the bottom of your lake causing algae to bloom? Blue Power can improve common problems with a unique combination of dye and enzymes. The amylase enzymes aid in the digestion of organic wastes as plant matter decomposes. You can adjust color intensity by adding more or less dye. Once diluted, dye will not stain fish, swimmers, concrete, or rocks.
Does your lake smell? Is muck build-up reducing the depth of your lake? Concentrate is an economical solution to your basic bioaugmentation needs. Choose this ultra-concentrated culture of 4 spore-forming bacteria to reduce the buildup of sludge and odor while speeding the removal of harmful ammonia and nitrite. Every gallon of Micro-Lyfe Concentrate contains 12 trillion microorganisms!
Does your lake have high nitrogen, including nitrates and low oxygen in the bottom waters? Complete is our advanced bacterial product with photosynthetic purple sulfur bacteria. Complete works in aerobic, anaerobic, or anoxic conditions to digest the most difficult compounds. It is one of the few bacterial products capable of converting nitrates to nitrogen gas.
Is muck-reduction your number one lake improvement priority? Sludge Clear is used with either the Complete or Concentrate products to accelerate the breakdown of muck and binds excessive nutrients, resulting in improved water clarity. This biological stimulant will enhance the muck and nutrient reduction properties of our other microbiology products, especially in warm-water.
Is your lake is receiving a lot of leaves, needles, or other plant material? Digester contains spore-based bacteria and enzymes in water soluble packets for mess-free ease of use. This consortium is specially formulated to biodegrade hard-to-digest plant material like leaves. If you have trees surrounding your lake, you should be tossing in packets of Micro-Lyfe Digester as part of your water management program.
Bioaugmentation and aeration were made for each other. Aeration and water circulation enhance the natural bacterial metabolism of muck and other organic materials in a lake. By supplementing with additional types of bacteria and accelerating enzymes, you speed the nutrient, muck, and odor reduction benefits of aeration. Since many of these beneficial bacteria require oxygen to perform at an optimal level, aeration will allow you to use less product to achieve the same strength of effectiveness thereby reducing your treatment cost.
