How Pond Muck Pellets Work in Your Pond
By combining natural beneficial bacteria, vitamins and enzymes, these muck pellets will energize the biological activity at the bottom of your lake or pond. Pond muck builds up when plants do not fully decompose in a body of water. This leads to the unpleasant “oozy” feeling between your toes when walking through a pond with muck present.
F-51 Muck pellets eat away at the organic sediment to reduce the level of muck. The contents of these pellets are good for the overall microbial environment. That being said, it will not harm any pond plants, fish, or people using the pond!
How Long Until I See Results
The time it takes lake muck removal pellets to work varies considerably on the percentage of organic matter in an area. As explained by Florida Lake Watch pond muck varies largely by the presence of organic material.
If the type of muck in your pond or lake has a high amount of inorganic matter, rock and mineral particles, it will take longer to notice results.
Something to also keep in mind, the rate of change in your muck levels will decrease over time. When you first apply the muck reducing pellets, there will be more organic material to consume. But as your pond gets closer and closer to being muck free, the pellets will have less “food” to eat.
Other Muck Removal Strategies
- Partner the use of muck pellets with pond aeration. We’ve written some great blogs on pond management strategies, and aeration is one of the main factors for keeping a healthy aquatic environment.
- Remove floating aquatic weeds whenever you see them along your pond’s shore. As we mentioned, plants that do not fully decompose are causing the muck problem!
- Avoid using algae and pesticides to kill plants, this will just add to your muck problem.
- Participate in proactive pond management!
