VitaStim Polar – Winter BOD Treatment

(6 customer reviews)

VitaStim Polar is a potent blend 23 essential vitamins, biostimulants, biocatalysts, and select biological species custom blended for wastewater lagoon BOD treatment. VitaStim Polar releases a highly-concentrated blend of psychrophilic (cold-loving) bacteria into the water to deal with lagoon BOD and sludge issues even in the winter.

For temperatures between 40°-64°F, this product is great for lowering winter BOD and TSS. On average customers who use our VitaStim Polar during the winter report a 30% to 60% decrease in effluent BOD from using this technology.

*For temperatures over 64°F, use one of the other Lagoon Line products. Below, explore them and Lagoon Line Companion Products.


Stop The Expensive Dredging Now

Mechanically dredging wastewater lagoons and ponds is an expensive process that stir up nutrients that were trapped in the anaerobic layer of sludge and puts them into the water column to fuel algae growth. Aquafix is dedicated to providing the best biological and biochemicial technology to remove wastewater sludge. This in turn saves wastewater departments and cities thousands of dollars.

VitaStim Polar is part of a proactive approach to lagoon treatment that promotes healthy biological activity in both the indigenous and added bacteria. These gram-negative cultures set to work in every area of lagoon health to balance the biological BOD-degrading processes of your lagoon. This reduces compacted sludge, clarifies the water, and reduces odors. VitaStim Polar saves systems during the dead of winter because of its ability to degrade municipal wastes, phenols, surfactants and other industrial wastes at temperatures as low as 41° F. The probiotic components in Polar Blend promote healthy biological activity to both the indigenous and Polar Blend bacteria.

VitaStim Lagoon Line

For water temperatures above 78° F: VitaStim Summer Slam is formulated with a blend of lagoon heat-loving bacteria that are extremely active during the summer.

For water temperatures 65-78° F: VitaStim Sludge Reducer is formulated with a blend of lagoon bacteria that perform well in transition temperatures.

Companion Products

OxyPaks XL is a granular oxygen source and sludge digestion accelerator that really kicks the bacteria into overdrive to chew up sludge. It frees up sludge from the anaerobic layer to allow bacteria to easily access and digest the sludge BOD.

For extreme sludge removal, use Sludge Rx. This revolutionary tablet will turn 1 foot of nutrient-filled sludge into a few inches of bacterial biomass while dramatically reducing nutrients.

Municipal Sludge Reducer


A newly upgraded 500,000 gallon per day wastewater system has a large industry that produces biocides. Biocides are made to disinfect and kill bacteria, viruses, and germs making them toxic to wastewater biology.


The plant added VitaStim Sludge Reducer in the summer months and VitaStim Polar in the winter.


VitaStim Sludge Reducer and VitaStim Polar keeps their biology running at optimal levels, reduces the sludge production, improves dewatering and settling by 20% to 30%, and controls foam.

  1. Al

    We have now completed our fall discharging for this year as of this last Monday. I am happy to report that we were well within our spec limits in testing for the first time in 9 years. I would like to contribute this to using your VitaStim Polar product through last winter, and eliminating the taking of all out side septic system materials from the tank haulers.

  2. Jeff

    We use the Polar in our SBRs in the winter, it allows them to run better and we are very pleased with the sludge reduction.

  3. D.J.

    I operate a 200,000 gpd oxidation ditch. Polar really helps keep our sludge production down during the winter. I have purchased a lot of different cultures in the past and these are the best I have used – or I would not continue to use them. One thing I know when ever I bought bacteria from a soap salesman or chemical salesmen I never got the same quality.

  4. Rich S. (IL)

    very happy with this product

  5. Kaleb G. (IL)

    Love these products, use them every year

  6. Stephen D. (IL)

    Kevin is great to work with. I highly recommend their products. I’ve had great results from their products in my lagoon at my Water Superintendent job
