Hydrostart beneficial pond bacteria reduces algae in your pond by consuming the nutrients that algae feeds on. With over 5 billion CFU (Colony Forming Units) of bacteria spores per gram, it has the ability to double in size every 15 minutes to establish your beneficial bacteria colonies. Your pond water, rocks and gravel will soon be sparkling again. It will also restore and then preserve most pond water quality issues.

In new ponds or springtime ecosystem reboots, apply 1 teaspoon per 1000 gallons of pond water DAILY for TWO WEEKS to establish the ecosystem then 1 teasspoon per 1000 gallons once per week after that to ensure sufficent bacteria population.
Treatment dosage may be increased to up to 4 teaspoons per 1000 gallons of pond water if extremely poor water quality persists or if the pond does not have a proper filtration system.

helps keep pond clean and clear
I had a problem with ammonia in my pond, so after trying some stuff that didn't work I called and talked to the lady at The Pond Hub. She told me about this product, adding good bacteria so anyway I ordered it (easy to do) and started using it, and my pond is great now. I have been using it for several months and decided to share my story because it is hard to find good stuff and good people these days. My fish are happy and my pond looks better than it ever has.
