Bionetix® International Introduces Natural and Economical Approach to Enhancing Water Clarity
Water clarity is an important part of water quality. It impacts the health of plants and fish and affects the appearance of recreational waterways. Good water quality is challenged by the natural buildup of decaying plant and fecal matter, which increases TSS (total suspended solids) and organic sludge. It is also threatened by nutrient rich waters from agricultural and municipal runoff. This “nutrient pollution” from excess nitrogen and phosphorus creates a prime environment for the growth of algae. Buildup of organic matter and excess nutrients can result in turbid waters, toxic overloads, bad odors, low dissolved oxygen levels, and fish and plant die-off.
Bionetix® International has introduced a natural solution to enhancing water clarity through the use of Aquaclar. This all-natural bioaugmentation treatment contains non-pathogenic bacteria that digest organic waste and “eat” the same nutrients responsible for nutrient pollution. Aquaclar also lowers toxicity by allowing sequestration of heavy metals and ammonia that could be detrimental to aquatic life. Aquaclar is easy to use, safe for humans and wild animals, and creates a beneficial environment for fish.
Bioaugmentation with Aquaclar can accomplish many water quality tasks:
- Reduce BOD and COD
- Break down fecal and other organic waste in water
- Maintain clarity
- Reduce ammonia and other toxins
- Reduce TSS and organic sludge
- Prevent malodors
- Reduce nutrient pollution
- Remove nitrogen
- Increase dissolved oxygen levels
Aquaclar is a tan powder that contains a multi-purpose high-count bacteria/enzyme blend in a mineral porous carrier. As a natural bioaugmentation treatment, it supplies an extra dose of “good” bacteria that perform healthy biodegradation functions in the water. These bacteria carry out their basic metabolic activities by using enzymes to break apart and digest contaminants, in effect “eating” up the organic waste and excess nutrients that hinder water clarity.
Aquaclar can be added to both facultative and anaerobic systems and can be used to improve the water clarity of ponds, lagoons, small lakes, canals, and fish farms. It is an economical and effective way to keep water in ecological balance, improve water clarity, and create an environment that reduces nutrient pollution!
