Save a boat-load by ordering your koi and pond-keeping essentials by December 15, 2017! All orders will be available for pick-up at our store around the middle of March, 2018. Sorry, no shipping available for koi pre-booking items due to their bulk size.

Speeds up the removal of sludge and muck, naturally. Especially helpful for ponds that have a rock or gravel bottom, and where vacuuming is impractical. Formulated specifically for the removal of organic bottom solids that are slow to degrade, and which may become toxic to fish and plant life. 

As organic solids accumulate on the pond bottom, they begin to break down releasing toxic gasses to the surrounding environment. These gaseous by-products endanger fish, marine life and plants.

MICROBE-LIFT/Sludge-Away works faster at warm water temperatures, however, it may be used effectively at any temperature year-round.

MICROBE-LIFT/Sludge-Away may slightly discolor pond water for a short while. Rocks along the edge may darken but will return to their natural colour. Sludge-Away will accelerate the solubilization and biological digestion of organic solids in your pond. As a result of this increased oxygen demand, the Oxygen Uptake Rate (OUR) in your pond will increase in the process, along with your aquatic life’s need for oxygen. It is important to engage aerators!
