Great products to keep my pond clear

I’ve used these products for years. It’s the only thing I would put in my pond to keep it organic and clear.

Hardly Noticed a Difference

Used the whole 10 lbs. on half my 1/3 acre pond banks and hardly noticed any difference. I used the name brand 8 lbs. bucket a couple years before and I seen the rocks by August around the edges of my pond. Can't believe they are the same strength and that this will get rid of 5" in one season. I had less than 1" and used it according to the directions and still had muck at the end of the season. I even used more in some areas to test it but it did not work like the last 8 lbs. pale I bought online for the same price.

How do muck-reducing Pellets reduce mucky bottoms?

Muck is caused by rotting vegetation, leaves, twigs, and fish waste that accumulate on the bottom of your pond. Muck-Away Pellets are a special blend of highly concentrated beneficial bacteria.

Designed for spot-treating, these muck pellets for ponds and lakes go to work on contact to rapidly dissolve organic waste into an odorless gas that escapes unnoticed out of the water column. Muck-Away Pellets are so effective that when used regularly you can remove up to 5 inches of muck per year in northern climates and up to double in southern climates!

Why should I use Biological Muck Reducer Pellets?

Smith Creek Biological Muck Reducer Pellets are an inexpensive alternative to dredging out the muck in a pond. Over time, muck decreases the depth of your pond. Muck is also unpleasant to walk through when using a pond for swimming. Large amounts of nutrients are held in muck, making it ideal for algae and pondweeds to grow. Reducing muck by treating a pond with Biological Muck Reducer Pellets will reduce the amount of nutrients available for algae and weeds.

Easy to apply Biological Muck Reducer Pellets:

Simply broadcast Biological Muck Reducer Pellets evenly over the treatment area by hand or scoop. Treatment areas should be measured in square feet or acres.

When to apply Biological Muck Reducer Pellets:
Apply every 2-4 weeks when water temperatures are above 40° F. Treatments should continue until desired results are achieved. Wait 3 days after an algaecide and/or herbicide treatment to apply Biological Muck Reducer Pellets.
