Description

Nobody wants to do the dirty jobs when it comes to cleaning a pond, but unfortunately, they need doing. To maintain not only an attractive pond, but a safe pond for fish, there are some simple, but dirty, maintenance jobs that need doing. Pond sludge is undoubtedly the dirtiest of all the pond jobs but can also be the most dangerous to fish. The build-up of decaying leaves, twigs, fish food and waste can become anaerobic and emit gases that can kill fish. But with the help of a bacterial pond sludge remover you can keep your hands clean, your fish safe and let nature do the dirty work.

Getting Rid of Sludge & Mud in A Pond
Sludge Klear is a pond sludge remover that contains millions of beneficial bacteria. Their job is to target pond sludge, break it up and get it to the water column. From there, your filters can catch it and it can be physically washed away. Sludge Klear will work in ponds that don’t have filters but can take longer to work as we’re relying on bacteria alone. The bacteria in Sludge Klear are capable of working 4°C to remove sludge and improve water clarity.

With how the bacteria work in pond sludge removers, it’s normal for your pond worsen before it gets better. The bacteria get in to the sludge to disturb it, which can cause your water to look cloudy and murky. Similar to when you disturb mud in a river bed or sand in the sea.

Sludge Klear is an extremely effective, natural solution to vacuuming pond sludge and will provide many benefits in the future. It’s very quick to remove sludge with a vacuum, but by doing this, you remove any beneficial bacteria in your pond and leave your pond susceptible to future problems. We always say that the best approach is to take your time and do it right.

Having an established bacterial colony in your pond, creates an army that fight off problems like sludge and green water. There are also a few other things you can do in your pond to prevent the build up sludge. From reducing how often you feed fish, to removing debris as soon as possible.

For best results, ensure pH is between 7.5 & 8.5 when using any bacterial treatment.

Bacterial treatments are not a quick fix and can take several weeks to complete resolve the problem.
