This is why cleaning sludge before winter sets in is an important step in “winterizing” a fish pond! [1]
All of this material is usually absorbed by bacteria that breathe oxygen. The water may become stagnant and stale if it isn’t aerated enough. temperature layersThis is what gives the pond its scent. The top layer gets warmed by the sun and isn’t able to hold any oxygen and seals up the bottom layer with a limited amount of oxygen. The top layer is heated by the sun and is unable to hold any oxygen. ponds oxygen supply is depleted there is not enough of the good bacteria to deal with the waste being produced so the breakdown of the debris in the pond is left to the bacteria that doesn’t need The pond must have oxygen for life. This bacteria is slower at converting the waste into useful nutrients. Additionally, it emits Hydrogen Sulphide and Methane while doing so which can make the water noxious and toxic for fish.

Latest studies by chemtech-us.com This is why we have created a special blend of bacteria to reduce or eliminate the unpleasant odour. The proper combination of bacteria, such as our Pond Clear product, will accomplish two important things. This is called “denitrification.” Ponds tend to have high number of nitrogen and phosphorous. For algae, phosphorous and other forms of vegetative growth, nitrogen and phosphorous can be food sources. Special bacteria that is able to absorb nitrogen/phosphorous can fight for the food source. This prevents unwanted organic matter from growing. b) Reduce the sludge. The sludge layer will absorb bacteria from the bottom. It is possible to reduce odors by eating the sludge.
