From basic pathogens to the complex chemicals that run through our waterways, we can help to balance, clarify and clean your water. Algae control starts in two treatments, and we can stop moss growth in a matter of weeks.
WaterMix is for use in groundwater, lakes and ponds, standing water and decorative water features. Our products are approved by the US EPA for all ground and water discharge. The products are all-natural, non-toxic and require no special handling or permits.
Testing and dosing suggestions are available through our partners at Water Dynamics and Prime 90 in North Salt Lake, Utah.

Utah Lake sample, one treatment. Unlike other treatments, our product has beneficial, long term results. Our active concentrate stimulates balanced, biological growth, idea for your area and contamination types. After a few treatments, supplemental treatments or other options may be suitable for long term benefit.

In 2014, our founder teamed up with Sean Amodt of the Southwest Mosquito Abatement Association (SWMAA), and Dr. Barnum of Dixie University to do research on the effect of the products on mosquito in their various stages of life and emergence.
We effectively reduced the mosquito population in both a lab and bucket test environment - By+98%.
A presentation was later given by Mitchell at the UMAA Conference (See projects) and gained support from abatement districts, Universities and individuals. We are not really any of the known vector control types IE: pesticide, larvicide, surfactant, but larvicide without the chemicals is what we've come up with, so far.
Currently: Continuing reporting and research in Spring 2021 with Sean Amodt and other field teams. Goal is to show field results in multiple regions and climates and provide for widespread reductions in mosquito.
Southwest Mosquito Abatement Association with Sean Amodt
Sean Amodt is an expert in mosquito species, research and abatement methods and is currently publishing a book on mosquito types. Sean is respected and admired across the US for his work and has been instrumental in testing, presentations and ongoing contacts for our team. Some of his research can be found in the reference material and the district that Sean runs in Southern Utah can be found here: http://www.swmosquito.org/
Dixie State University and Dr. Barnum
Dixie State University assisted with the research of the effects of our tests and products on aquatic life. Findings were that the fish exposed to the product were safe, healthy and the water was cleaner and healthier than prior.
Here is the late Dr. Barnum’s brief bio:
Dr. Andrew H. Barnum (1924-2020) was born in Mesquite, Nev. He spent 36 years (1959-95) as a professor and administrator at Dixie College. After his retirements, he continued to serve as director and curator of the Dixie College Museum of Natural Science and as an adjunct professor. He was valedictorian of his graduating class at Dixie College in 1947, then received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Brigham Young University, and a Ph.D. from Iowa State University.
Dr. Barnum is revered by the hundreds of professionals in the medical and dental fields that he has taught, as the “most difficult, yet finest teacher” they had in their entire careers. His demanding and professional teaching standards, mixed with his quick wit, assured them of their future success. Dr. Barnum turned down several opportunities at very prestigious institutions (Philadelphia Academy of Science, University of Michigan and the Smithsonian Institute) to remain teaching at Dixie. In addition to his teaching assignments, where he taught every biology course ever offered at Dixie (27 in all), he served as division director, Dean of Natural Science, Dean of Administration, Vice President of Instruction and College Vice President, Faculty Association President, yearbook advisor and tennis coach. He is missed and loved, and contributed his wit, skepticism and curiosity freely and provided us testing that continues to be of value.
For maintenance and large waterway use:
1 oz product concentrate to 5,000 gallons of non chlorinated water.
For heavy algae, hydrocarbons, biomass and general use:
1 oz per 1,500 gallons non chlorinated water.
For heavy fats, consistent waste streams and other heavy uses:
1 oz per 300-500 gallons non chlorinated water.
Start where you feel comfortable, we have not had any issues with over use, other than with budgets.
For ideal use, mix recommended concentrate with 2-5 gallons water and apply on surface or through your most aerated areas.
Oxygen must be able to get to the product, aeration is recommended where DO is below a 2. Will stay active and working in temperatures above freezing to
approx 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
