Algae survive, grow and reproduce by feeding off of the nutrients – nitrogen potassium and phosphorous– in the water. There are a variety of algae that differ in make-up and size.
Unmonitored growth of these species can degrade water quality – low oxygen levels and sunlight unable to penetrate the algae scum on the surface. This poses threats to other organisms in the water like fish, plants and other aquatic life. In addition, algae growth makes it increasingly difficult for treatment plants to meet effluent permit limits.
Introduce BioBag Extreme into the pond, lagoon, lake, etc. to prevent these periods of excessive algae growth. BioBag Extreme uses bio-augmentation, a non-chemical and natural method – to remove the nutrients that are vital to algae growth.
The microbes that are introduced ingest carbon, phosphorous, potassium and nitrogen at an accelerated rate, which limits the nutrients available for algae to consume. This control by competitive inhibition increases water clarity, reduces sludge and promotes overall better health for the aquatic environment.
