VitaStim Polar – Winter BOD Treatment

VitaStim Polar – Winter BOD Treatment  brings a highly-concentrated blend of psychrophilic (cold-loving) microorganisms from the lab into reality.

For temperatures between 41°-64°F, this product is great for lowering winter's 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.

Polar Blend 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.

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.

    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.

    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.
