Pond Algae Control

Reduce organic matter to manage algae bloom in bodies of freshwater.

Eliminate Algae’s Food Source

The best way to remove algae and achieve clearer water is to eliminate its food source—decaying organic material. Algae control can be achieved using Bacteria Direct products. Clarify™ powder is a bacteria-based, application-specific product used to remove organic matter from a variety of water systems containing fish and animal wastes or decaying plant material.

Water clarity can be compromised by excess nutrients such as nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus. A decrease in water quality poses threats to organisms in the water like fish, plants and other aquatic life. Poor water quality also makes it increasingly difficult for treatment plants to meet effluent permit limits. Using Clarify™ reduces organic matter, which helps achieve optimal algae control.

About Clarify™

Clarify™ uses bio-augmentation, a non-chemical and natural method, to reduce organic levels that threaten good water quality in ponds, lakes, lagoons, etc. The application-specific microbes in the product ingest carbon, phosphorous, potassium and nitrogen at an accelerated rate, which limits the organic loading available and improves water quality. Overall, Clarify™ promotes a better aquatic environment as the water clarity is improved.

The use of Clarify™ aids water treatment plants in meeting effluent regulations with decreased use of aerators, and thus saving on energy costs.

Targeted CompoundsOrganic debris, sludge build-up, and cellulose
