Restoring a natural balance.
Bacteria occur naturally everywhere and they are the base of the food chain. Bacteria convert nutrient material through consumption as they grow and multiply. Then, other aquatic organisms, such as insects, feed on the bacteria which in turn become food for fish, birds and other animals.
Different strains of bacteria can reduce muck, improve water clarity or reduce the levels nitrogen and phosphorus that are available for plant and weed growth. Adding additional specially cultured strains of bacteria can greatly improve the water quality of a pond or lake. The bacteria outcompete algae and plants for the available nutrients in the water column while enhancing the natural decomposition process.
Enzymes are organic proteins that act as catalysts in specific chemical reactions. Enzymes enhance chemical reactions without being consumed in the process. Adding the right enzymes can improve the decomposition process and improve the efficiency of the beneficial bacteria in the water.
