"Macro-Zyme Pond Bacteria is the eco-friendly approach to reducing and reversing seasonal buildup of sludge in ponds and the associated nutrient levels and foul pond odors. With over 3 billion CFU's per gram, once added, the bacteria quickly go to work consuming organic material such as grass clippings, animal waste, fertilizer and chemical waste, dead plant material, and other pond-bottom accumulations. If this organic material is left untreated, it will begin to fill in your pond and can create poor living conditions for fish and other pond inhabitants. It can also cause excessive aquatic plant growth. By adding Macro-Zyme every 3 weeks when water temperatures are above 55F and with pH levels 5.5-8.5 you can experience a rapid reduction in foul pond odor and the decrease in nutrient-rich, organic material at the bottom of your pond. Macro-Zyme is a facultative anaerobic bacteria, so it works with or without oxygen. However, it is up to 5 times faster if adequate oxygen is present, so it is perfect with any Kasco aeration or fountain equipment.

5 of 7(71%)would recommend this product to a friend.
Our pond was getting very cloudy and merky and with the dry hot weather I was concerened with the bad bacteria and algea that was growing in it! I added this Marco-Zyme pond Bacteria and in about a week it began to clear and it is no longer cloudy. It is harmeless to the fish. It has satisfied us 100%! It has been over a month since we put it in our pond and it is still clear. I have recommended this to friends. Great product! Simple to use and not messy!
This stuff works really well. Only gave it 4 stars because it does take a little time to see the results. My pond always get a layer of scum on top during the hot summer months wich seems to make the mosquitoes even worse. This product clears it all up but you do need to be patient as it may take a week to start seeing the result. (Works faster when you can get some movement in the water. Also don't wait until it is really bad) I like the fact that it is a natural safe product and does not harm my fish.
Pond is green. Used this product,, suppose to be good to 165,000 gallons of water. Put it in my 5,000 gal pond and after 10 days, the pond is still green and there is no change at all. I rate it as a zero
This product works great. I have an acre pond and tried many products. None worked as fast and successful as this one. I have not seen any algae or oxygen loss since using this product. Great price and fast shipping.
