Bacterial-based pond products – like the Envii Pond Range – work by using task-specific strains of bacteria which digest organic waste. Water problems likes green water, blanket weed and pond sludge are caused by the organic waste.
The process starts with a singular bacterium which produces enzymes that digest waste. As the enzymes digest waste the bacterium grows and splits into two. In addition, This process repeats which means that the bacteria grow logarithmically (i.e. 1 becomes 2, 2 become 4, 4 become 8).
The more bacteria you add the more waste they eat. Therefore, when there is no more waste they sit dormant and wait for their next food source to be added.
