Pond saver Our Koi pond water was very green. Aside from doing a total water change, we could not seem to improve the water quality even though we tried a number of commercial products... until we tried Microbe Lift PL.
Within a short time the water quality improved and the color was noticeably better.
Pros:None
Cons:Smells like sulfer

This stuff really works!! MicrobeLift is a great brand. All its products are good for your pond and your koi. I use the PL every year in my 19,000 gallon pond. It gets the bacteria going quickly in the spring and keeps the biological filters operating at peak performance all season.
Pros:The more smelly it is, the more live bacteria are in the bottle.
Cons:None

Microbe-Lift PL Followed dosage instructions and within a couple of days, water started clearing up. String algae started disappearing. The UV lights have not been used since using Microbe-Lift. Clearly, the koi pond was low on beneficial bacteria. This product really works.
Pros:Cost savings and reduced maintenance.
Cons:None so far.

I started using this product 5 weeks ago on an 8,000 gallon ornamental fish pond. The water is now clear, and the dead algae on the bottom of the pond is reduced. The pond has not looked this good for several years. I aerate but don't filter, so I'm hoping these bacteria controls the algae. The fish don't seem to care one way or another, but I enjoy a clean looking pond.
Pros:None
Cons:None
