Product Details

Microbe-Lift SA Sludge Away is formulated specifically for the removal of organic bottom solids that are slow to degrade. It works faster at warm water temperatures, however may be used effectively at any temperatures year-round. Recommended for use with all Microbe-Lift bacteria and enzyme products.

Years in development, MICROBE-LIFT/SludgeAway speeds the biological removal of slow-to-degrade organic waste matter from aquatic pond bottoms that 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/SludgeAway removes bottom organic sludge and muck-reducing or eliminating the potential harmful gaseous compounds-and helps clarify your pond water at the same time.

This product is especially helpful for ponds that have a rock or gravel bottom and where vacuuming is impractical.
Microbe-Lift/SA contains natural cellulite matter, select biological accelerators and special microbes proven effective in pond sludge reduction.
