Summer and Autumn water treatment for nutrient control and biological filtration maintenance
Establishes biological filtration in new ponds and water gardens
Encourages the growth of desirable plants and discouraging algae
Improves water clarity, decreases pond odor, increases dissolved oxygen concentration, and encourages a cleaner bottom substrate
FlorinBac-S is a suspension of non-pathogenic aerobic and anaerobic microbes, as well as natural enzymes, specifically formulated to establish biological filtration in new pond set-ups, and to enhance the rate of nitrification, denitrification, and organic waste degradation through complete nutrient remineralization. These microbes are provided in a state of suspended animation for maximum longevity.
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.
Shake product well before using. Store indoors in a cool location; refrigeration will prolong effectiveness of product but is not necessary. For best results, turn UV-sterilization and/or ozonation off for a period of 2 hours following addition to pond.
To establish Biological Filtration in new ponds and water gardens: Add 1 capful (~5 ml) of FlorinBac-S per 25 US-gallons (95 L) of pond water daily for the first two weeks of use. Thereafter, dose as dictated below.
Medium- to high-nutrient ponds: If nitrate concentration is >50 ppm and phosphate concentration is >0.05 ppm, add 1 capful (~5 ml) of FlorinBac-S per 25 US-gallons (95 L) of pond water daily until concentrations decrease to <50 ppm and <0.05 ppm, respectively. Then follow “low-nutrient” instructions, below.
Low-nutrient ponds: Add 1 capful (~5 ml) of FlorinBac-S per 50 US-gallons (189 L) of pond water every two to three days; alternately, and for best results, add 1 capful per 100 US-gallons (379 L) daily.
When adding fish or plants to pond: Add 1 capful per 50 US-gallons (189 L) daily for one week, then resume appropriate dosage as nitrate and phosphate concentrations dictate.
