Oververde are distributors of bacterial innoculants that can be used for addressing small or large scale water problems, from koi pond to day ticket fisheries and industrial waste water treatment plants. These products are live bacteria for improving water quality, offering a natural and safe alternative to chemical treatment.
The AquaClean™ range of products include innoculants to improve aquatic nutrient cycling to reduce high levels of ammonia, nitrate, nitrite etc and to improve water clarity problems and organic sludge build up.
For larger water body projects, please contact us for prices of AquaClean™ products as they are not currently sold through our website.
Clarity problems occur whenever you have a combination of pond water, sun, N (nitrogen) and P (phosphorous). The live bacteria in AquaClean™ ACF-SC Dual-Packs consume N and P food. The AquaClean™ bacteria consume N and P extremely quickly, without any toxicity. Dual-Packs restore the natural balance in a pond, which means a healthy mix of natural bacteria . Through use of Dual-Packs, a pond is restored to its’ natural clarity and beauty.
Sludge and Odour Problems
Almost all ponds, particularly older ponds, have sludge build up. Sludge is the organic sediment located at the bottom of the pond. Several problems happen when the sludge build up gets heavy. The pond may have plenty of oxygen in the water near the top of the water column, but in the sludge at the bottom of the pond, there is very little oxygen. Disease-causing, odour-causing “anaerobic bacteria” live in the sludge at the bottom of the pond.
The worse the sludge build up, the greater the risk of fish disease, and the worse the odours will become. Foul pond odours (usually thought of as “rotten egg smell”) come from the sludge in the bottom of the pond.
AquaClean™ bacteria digest the sludge at the bottom of a pond. This means that the risk of fish disease is reduced, and foul pond odors are eliminated. Note: AquaClean™ bacteria digest organic sludge (leaves, dead algae, fish/bird waste, etc.). AquaClean™ products do not digest clay, sand or silt.
AquaClean™ is also very effective in cleaning up Fats, Oils and Grease as well as Petroleum-Hydrocarbons; while providing excellent Odour Control by breaking down Hydrogen Sulfide, Complex Mercaptans and other Sulfur Compounds.
