Pond-Zyme is a super-concentrated blend of dry bacteria and natural barley that keeps pond water clean and clear. Organic matter accumulates in all garden ponds, forming unsightly sludge. As the sludge decomposes, it consumes oxygen, degrades water quality, and clogs pumps and filters. It is also a breeding ground for fish pathogens. The specially selected bacterial strains in Pond-Zyme work quickly to remove sludge build-up.
Directions: Use the enclosed measuring spoon and sprinkle evenly around the perimeter of the pond. For best results, use Pond-Zyme with API PondCare Accu-Clear, a two-step approach for incomparable water clarity.
- Spring Start-up / End of Season: Add two scoops per 200 US gallons of pond water (757 L) twice a week for 2 weeks.
- Maintenance: Add one scoop per 200 US gallons (757 L) every 2 weeks.
