Situation

Duckweed and diesel spill in pond/moat

Challenges

High levels of phosphates and nitrates, increasing odours issues

Background

If neglected, ponds and lakes can become anaerobic (no oxygen) due to high levels of phosphates and nitrates, which then promote the growth of algaes and weeds. As the pH levels increase and oxygen levels decrease, aquatic life struggle and die. In hot weather, anaerobic water can become stagnant and odourous.

Eco Tab bacterial treatment digest (eat) sludge at the bottom of lake whilst oxygenating the water using its unique micro dot separation technology. The bacteria digest sludge and hydrocarbons therefore cutting off the food source for algaes and weeds.

Eco Tabs are 100% environmentally friendly and 100% safe for all human, animal, aquatic and wildlife.

Solution

“This is remarkable. The water had become anaerobic and dull. The situation was exacerbated by an unfortunate diesel spillage which covered the water with an oily film. The duckweed was out of control and made the site look neglected.

We started using Eco Tabs and within 2 weeks, we could see that the water was becoming clearer and healthier. After a month, the water is now clear, reflective, pH balanced, aerobic and the aquatics and wildlife are thriving. No evidence of the diesel spillage and the duckweed has gone. The product works and nice people to work with.”

FAQs

Why are Eco Tabs better than my current products?

There are no products on the market similar to Eco Tabs. Manual cleaning of the pond and the removal of weeds and algae were the normal routine for the ground keepers. This meant using a boat for access and specialist disposal of toxic sludge.

Eco Tabs are unique and 100% environmentally friendly, as well as 100% safe for all human, animal, avian, aquatic and wildlife. Eco Tabs are a blend of specific non-pathogenic bacteria chosen to do a certain job, i.e. digest (eat) organic sludge. Once the bacteria have digested all the organic sludge, they die off (3-4 months) and are digested by the new bacteria. The byproducts of non-pathogenic bacteria are 95% water and 5% carbon dioxide.

Are Eco Tabs better value than my current products?

Compared to manual cleaning/removal and disposal, customers can expect to significantly reduce their costs dependent on flows, arriving effluent etc. PPE is not required.

What are the benefits of using Eco Tabs?

Each Eco Tab contains billions of dehydrated bacteria CFU. Every microbiologist will confirm that bacterial digestion is optimised in an aerated environment. Therefore, every Eco Tab contains sodium bicarbonate to deliver an oxygenated environment within the water column without the need for pumps and power etc.

Are there any negative impacts?

No. All Eco Tabs are 100% safe for the environment. In addition, PPE is not required.
