To Assist bacteria in the natural biodegrading of organic build up.
This is a Treatment for ponds, lakes, dugouts, community reservoirs. Assisting bacteria in the natural biodegrading of organic build up. Black smelly water during winter and early spring is usually caused by decaying organic matter entrapped in the dugout/pond, organic matter builds up in dugouts/ponds from algae and weed growth and is also washed in to the dugout /ponds by runoff water. In the fall, after algae and weed growth stops, decaying begins along with other materials such as tree leaves, grass and even manure from birds/livestock. The decaying continues after freeze-up and water is robbed of oxygen. In other words, it becomes septic. Under these conditions, odor is reduced and water turns black. Use FORTIFIED POND CONDITIONER to clean up your water for the next season.
