Sludge Removers

Microbe-Lift Sludge Away

Formulated for the removal of organic bottom solids that are slow to degrade, especially helpful in ponds that have a rock or gravel bottom or where vacuuming is impractical. As organic solids accumulate on the pond bottom, they begin to break down releasing toxic gasses. These gaseous by-products can endanger fish, marine life and plants. Microbe-Lift Sludge Away reduces and eliminates potential harmful gaseous compounds and helps clarify your pond water at the same time.

  • Organic and microbial based
  • Safe for fish, plants, pets and the environment
  • Provides "rapid and natural sludge and muck removal"
