About This Product

The Block™ by pond boss® PRO is a blend of live bacteria and enzymes specifically designed to improve water quality by reducing unwanted nutrients. Decaying nutrients such as leaves, grass clipping, dead plants, excess food and other organic material build at the bottom of the pond in what is commonly called the Ã'sludgeÃ" layer of the pond. The sludge layer is most often responsible for undesirable odors and low oxygen levels. Regular use of pond boss® PRO The Block™ will degrade unwanted organic debris accumulation and improve the overall health of the pond while clearing the water column of unwanted organic material. This time released 1 lb. block treats up to 1 acre-foot of water (325,000 gallons)* over the course of 60 days. *Results may vary based on weather conditions and the use of other products.

Highlights

  • The Block™ reduces ammonia and nitrogen levels
  • Disloves away organic sludge
  • Significantly reduces noxious odors caused by hydrogen sulfide, dead plant material, and fish waste
  • Improves disolved oxygen levels and water clarity
  • Controlled daily release that increases efficiency
  • Effective over a wide range of pH conditions and water temperatures
  • Use in water temperatures of 50 degrees F or higher
  • 1 lb. block treats up to 1 acre-foot of water (325,000 gallons)
  • Treat every 60 days for best results
  • *Results may vary based on weather conditions and the use of other products.

Q:Is this product hazardous to humans? Do people swim in your “ponds”? I have a 250 gal. Water tank that’s connected to my off grid flushing toilet. Can I use this product for that instead?

          My pond is about 80'x40' so I cut the block into thirds (very easy to cut) and submerged it. It seemed to clear most of the particle or planktonic algae in about two weeks. Much more cost effective than chemical additives.

          Helps clean & maintain nitrogen levels
          Purchased this spring. It does work wonderful if your pond is not too overwhelmed with dying organic matter and fish and foul. It may take a few months to see results depending on your pond. She’s.
