Mechanically dredging wastewater lagoons and ponds is an expensive process that stirs up nutrients that are 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 biochemical technology to remove wastewater sludge. This, in turn, saves wastewater departments and cities thousands of dollars. VitaStim Lagoon Line is a potent blend of 23 essential vitamins, biostimulants, biocatalysts, and select biological species custom blended for wastewater lagoons. The water-soluble packets are thrown in from the shore and help to lower BOD, ammonia, TSS, and sludge accumulations.
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. 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.

Manufacturer of Luxury Soaps Controls Fatty Acid Foaming
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.
Within 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.
