Phosphates come into a pond or lake from leaves, grass clippings, twigs, fish waste, other organic matter, and storm runoff, which carries fertilizers and other contaminants that can begin to disrupt the natural aquatic ecosystem, causing poor water quality. The natural phosphate binders in EcoBoost PRx work within the water column to clear up cloudy or murky water and restore your water quality.
EcoBoost PRx acts as a “reset” button, especially when used early in the season or any time phosphates become a problem, such as following heavy rain or lawn fertilizer treatment. EcoBoost PRx binds phosphates quickly, safely, and effectively making them unusable, helping to prevent future water quality issues.
The highly effective, all-natural phosphate binders found in EcoBoost PRx eliminate the need for heavy metal treatments such as aluminum sulfate, which can negatively affect your pond’s pH. EcoBoost PRx will not affect pH levels, has no water use restrictions, and is safe for use in lakes, ponds, lagoons, and other aquatic environments.
Excessive Phosphates Fuel Poor Water Quality and Algae Blooms
Phosphorus is the main nutrient that supports the growth of aquatic plants, and it is a natural part of the aquatic ecosystem. Phosphates enter a pond or lake from decaying organic matter (leaves, animal waste, lawn clippings) and storm runoff, which carries fertilizers and other contaminants that can begin to disrupt the natural aquatic ecosystem.
Human activity is increasing phosphate levels at a dramatic rate and making headlines around the world.
High levels of phosphates can cause toxic algae blooms, rampant weed growth, and poor water quality. Unless phosphates are controlled, successful aquatic management is limited. EcoBoost PRx is designed to bind excess phosphates quickly, safely, and effectively making them unusable as a food source for algae and weeds.
EcoBoost PRx is providing a natural solution for excess phosphates where there were previously only heavy metal solutions. Heavy metals (such as treatments with aluminum sulfate) negatively affect pH levels in aquatic environments.
Fish, Pet, Livestock & Wildlife Friendly
EcoBoost PRx may be applied to lakes, ponds, and lagoons used for irrigation and/or aquaculture. Water treated with EcoBoost PRx may be used for recreation, fishing, and other activities immediately after treatment. Safe for recreational ponds, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife, and the environment.
Learn how a 16-week treatment plan using EcoBoost PRx was able to reduce nearly 98% of Free Reactive Phosphorus (FRP) that led to increased water clarity and a reduction of harmful lake algae blooms, in our EcoBoost PRx Phosphate Control Study. Click here to read the full study.
