*Natural bacterial additive breaks down sludge and pond muck
*Specially formulated for ponds with rock or gravel bottoms
*Conditions pond water for a cleaner, healthier pond environment

Liquid Sludge Away accelerates the breakdown of difficult-to-remove sludge and muck buildup. Indispensable for ponds with rock or gravel bottoms where vacuuming may not be practical or effective. Best when used with water temperatures above 55°F, although in heavily stocked pond, additional oxygen should be supplied in water temperatures 85°F and above. 1 qt Sludge Away treats up to 3,200 gallons of water for maintenance. 11 oz Sludge Away Booster treats 250-750 gallons.

Trouble with ammonia? Microbe-Lift/HC is a proprietary "high count" formulation that reduces toxic ammonia/nitrogen levels and helps reduce buildup of organic waste.

Looking for seasonal additives? The Microbe-Lift Series creates a cleaner pond environment and promote faster fish growth. Formulas for every season. Formulated specifically for the removal of organic solids that accumulate on the bottom of the pond that is slow to degrade. Works faster at warmer temperatures, however, may be used effectively at any temperature year-round.

Dosage Rates:
Basic application rate = One Ounce per 100 gallons of pond water.

Size of pond in gallons First Application Maintenance: Once per week
for the next 4 weeks
1000-2000 12-25 oz 1 oz per 100 gallons water
2501-3500 25-35 oz 1 oz per 100 gallons water

Treat with Microbe-Lift SA monthly or as necessary thereafter.

Recommended for use with all Microbe-Lift bacteria and enzyme products.
NOTE: May temporarily discolor pond water.

NOTE: Microbe-Lift SA will accelerate the solubilization and biological digestion of organic solids in your pond. During this process, the oxygen uptake rate (OUR) in your pond will increase as a result of this increased biological activity. It is very important that your pond is able to support this increased oxygen demand along with your aquatic life's need for oxygen. When using Microbe-Lift SA, MAKE SURE that your pond is adequately oxygenated (>4.0 mg/L dissolved oxygen).

General Information
Microbe-Lift SA speeds the biological removal of slow-to-degrade organic waste matter found on the bottom of the pond. As organic solids accumulate on the bottom of the pond, they begin to break down and release toxic gasses to the surrounding environment. These gaseous by-products endanger fish, aquatic life, and plants.

Microbe-Lift SA removes organic sludge and muck on the bottom of the pond, reducing or eliminating the potential harmful gaseous compounds and helps to clarify your pond water at the same time.

Microbe-Lift SA contains natural cellular matter, selected biological accelerators, and special microbes proven effective in pond sludge reduction.
