Aquascape® Lake Sludge Remover Packs eliminate organic sludge or muck from lakes and large ponds, enhancing water clarity and quality while removing odours.

The easy-to-use water-soluble packs dose the sludge layer directly and make it easy to spot-treat or treat hard-to-reach areas. This treatment works best on lake bottoms, beach areas, and shorelines.

The packs contain all active ingredients with no harmful fillers or binders, and an added carbon source aids in proper denitrification.

Lake Sludge Remover Packs slowly release oxygen to maximise sludge reduction and include added macrobiotics to reduce sludge between doses effectively.

This treatment is for lake and effective pond use and may cause issues in smaller enclosed systems. Safe for fish, plants, and animals when used as directed.

    What does a sludge remover do?

    The Pond Advisor says:

    Sludge removers are microscopic bacteria that will eat and break down organic waste in your pond or lake water. They contain active ingredients that get to work when in the right conditions.

    These sludge remover packs work fantastically as a standalone product or alongside BioLake, the premium choice for leading professionals needing a more robust bio-dredging product.

    What are the ways to help these bio-dredging or sludge-removing products? Mechanical filtration is the best way to remove or clear sludge before it forms. Prevention is better than trying to stop the waste from building up in the first place. Mechanical filtration on a lake can be a considerable investment; bio dredging costs less than wet dredging, but removing the waste with an intake bay is more cost-effective. We have seen the most significant intake bay on a five-acre lake in 2024. 

    You can use this product in the depths of winter in deeper ponds, as it will work under the thermocline at four °C (in shallow water, the effect will not be harmful. Instead, it just reduces its effectiveness). It's best to store the product at room temperature, 100% above freezing, as it affects the makeup of the easy-to-use water-soluble packs.

    Keep out of reach of children, as these packs excite the little ones. Here are some potential health effects.
