How Does PondClear Work?

Common water clarity issues and imbalances are from abundant organic debris from fish waste, decaying vegetation, and storm runoff that carries fertilizers and other contaminants. If left alone, The resulting excess nutrients can cause water clarity and quality issues and fuel rampant weed and algae growth.

The highly concentrated beneficial aerobic bacteria in PondClear quickly go to work to consume organic debris that causes cloudy water, muck accumulation, foul pond odors, and imbalanced pond water.

With over 20 years of proven laboratory and field results, PondClear is the most widely used, most effective, and proven solution to clear water, eliminate nutrients, and control foul pond odors. PondClear contains specialized strains of beneficial probiotic bacteria that digest organic debris and restore water clarity and quality.

BioMax Technology – Bacteria Formulated for Pond & Lake Applications

There are trillions of bacteria strains on Earth, each with unique properties and specialties. PondClear utilizes BioMax Technology, a proprietary formulating process developed by Airmax. The BioMax process starts with analyzing the DNA of bacteria to ensure the correct bacterial strain is selected depending on the application. Once this process is complete, the bacteria are paired with specific micronutrients and enzymes to maximize the formula’s effectiveness while allowing it to work consistently in a broader range of environments.

Through this process, extensive research, and field testing, Airmax has selected exclusive beneficial bacteria strains that are the most effective in preserving pond water clarity and quality. Those potent strains make PondClear the industry leader in water clarification.

Included Maintenance Dose of EcoBoost PRx to Bind Phosphates

Each PondClear packet consists of a maintenance dose of EcoBoost PRx, a proprietary blend of naturally occurring phosphate binders designed to permanently bind free reactive phosphorus (FRP). EcoBoost PRx binds phosphates quickly, safely, and effectively, making them unusable as a food source for weeds and algae.

Combining PondClear natural bacteria with a maintenance dose of EcoBoost PRx will improve water clarity and bind phosphates, delivering long-lasting results.

Note: If your pond is suffering from highly cloudy or murky water resulting from storm runoff, chemical fertilizers, organic decomposition, and chemical herbicide or algaecide treatments, your phosphate levels may be high and require a complete reset treatment of EcoBoost PRx.
