PondZilla Pro

PondZilla Pro is an aquatic catalyst that provides better algaecide results by enhancing penetration. PondZilla Pro allows the algaecide to work more thoroughly and helps to clarify water.

Sludge Rx

Sludge Rx tablets will turn 1 foot of nutrient-filled sludge into a few inches of bacterial biomass. Designed for all types of wastewater facilities, these tablets lower effluent TSS, ammonia, phosphate, coliforms, and effluent pH.

OxyPaks XL

OxyPaks XL is and oxygen source that is used in wastewater lagoons, as well as sand and rock filters, to accelerate the digestion of sludge and prevent odors. This product allows the VitaStim Lagoon Line bacteria to better penetrate the sludge and degrade it.

Summer Slam

VitaStim Summer Slam is a blend of bacteria specially selected for use in water temperatures above 75 ° F and removes 30%-60% of the sludge from your lagoon while clearing the water, reducing dredging, and lowering ammonia.

Sludge Reducer

Sludge Reducer naturally decreases sludge blanket thickness at 1/10th the cost of dredging. With VitaStim Sludge Reducer you can easily remove 30-60% of sludge from your lagoon. As the bacteria go to work consuming organics you’ll also notice improvements in effluent BOD, TSS, and decreased odor.
