Promote Biological Activity in Wastewater Lagoons and Plants During Winter Months

(5 customer reviews)
  • Promotes BOD removal and ammonia control in water temperatures between 41-64°F
  • Works in wastewater lagoons and treatment plants
  • Stimulates bacterial activity during the toughest time of the year



Winter Solution For Temperatures Between 41-64°F

Product Info

VitaStim Lagoon Line is a potent blend of 23 essential vitamins, biostimulants, biocatalysts, and select biological species custom blended for wastewater lagoons.

The probiotic blend in VitaStim products promote healthy biological activity in both the indigenous and added bacteria. Pick the formulation below (product pairings) that works best with your lagoon water temperature. The water soluble packets are thrown in from the shore and help to lower BOD, ammonia, TSS, and sludge accumulations.

Stop The Expensive Dredging Now

Mechanically dredging wastewater lagoons and ponds is an expensive process that stirs up nutrients that are trapped in the anaerobic layer of sludge. This puts the nutrients 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 in temperatures as low as 41° F.

Case Studies

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 kept their biology running at optimal levels, reduced the sludge production, improved dewatering and settling by 20% to 30%, and controls foam.

    Love these products, use them every year

  2. Rich S. (IL)

    very happy with this product

    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.

    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.

  5. 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.
