VitaStim Summer Slam – Lagoon Treatment for Summer

(2 customer reviews)

VitaStim Summer Slam is a potent blend 23 essential vitamins, biostimulants, biocatalysts, and select biological species custom blended for wastewater lagoon treatment. The bacteria within this probiotic are designed to explode in warm water temperatures (78°F and above), thus degrading sludge and waste at dramatic rates.

VitaStim Summer Slam removes 30%-60% of the sludge from your lagoon while clearing the water, reducing dredging, and lowering ammonia.

*For temperatures lower than 78°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 Summer Slam 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 Summer Slam is used in the hottest summer months, containing the highest metabolism bacteria for warmer water temperatures.

VitaStim Lagoon Line

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

For water temperatures 40-64° F: VitaStim Polar contains cold-loving lagoon bacteria that thrive is in temperatures that cause other bacteria to shut down.

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.

VitaStim Summer Slam Case Studies

Rendering Plant Holding Pond


A rendering facility had a 4 acre pond, 6 ft deep, with about 4-5 ft of sludge that is discharged into everyday from the wastewater treatment plant.  This holding pond receives roughly 500-600 ppm of BOD, 7.8 pH, and 25-30 ppm of ammonia each day.  They needed an economical way to reduce the sludge, BOD, and odors.  In addition their pond downstream developed high TSS.


They began feeding 2 lbs per day of VitaStim Summer Slam along with OxyPaks XL for three months, then started VitaStim Polar to keep sludge at bay during winter.


Summer Sludge ReductionWithin three months, the sludge was reduced to 2-3 feet throughout the entire lagoon.  With the use of these products, the facility biologically reduced sludge, BOD and odors in their main holding pond, and reduced the TSS issue downstream. This facility continues this program every 2-3 years.
