WaterMix can be used to resolve a number of aquatic issues, ranging from algae control to heavy metal chelation.
WaterMix is composed of bacteria that are effective resource competitors to the algae or unwanted growth in your water. The WaterMix will not harm any aquatic life. After only a few applications of the WaterMix, water will be significantly cleaner and clearer.
Since the bacteria is aerobic water must be aerated to maintain oxygen at 3 PPM.
Do not apply to chlorinated water.
The Treatment Plan:
The Basic Water Treatment Cycle is divided into two phases, the Cleaning Phase and the Maintenance Phase. By applying a higher ratio of product to water during the Cleaning Phase there will be more bacteria competing for the harmful algae’s food source.
The maintenance phase is designed to retain progress achieved during the first 6 weeks of treatment by applying a lower ratio of product to water over increased periods of time.
Instructions (Ponds & Water Features)
For heavy algae, light to moderate hydrocarbon contamination, and mosquito control, add 1 oz per 1,500 gallons every two weeks for 6 weeks, then reduce to Light Dosing.
Light Dosing: To maintain water clarity, add 1 oz per 5,000 gallons every 3 weeks.
Apply product near aeration tube or in the pond/water feature's water source so that the product will move more efficiently through the water.
For sequencing of treatments, see the recommended WaterMix Basic Treatment Cycle Schedule available as a pdf file.

Add treated water to compost, to help speed up the processes. Eliminate odors, pathogens, chemicals and heavy metals. Re-use sanitation or processed water for great topsoil.
Got animals? Spray excess on your pet waste for rapid biosolid reduction, pathogen elimination and odor reduction or elimination. Use on female dog lawn spots to quickly restore grass and turf.
Spray in foliage and areas where mosquito like to make a home. We generally see a 98%+ decrease in mosquito, in treated areas.
