ORB-3 Bacteria Packets


ORB-3 Beneficial Bacteria is a special blend of good bacteria to speed and decompose bottom sludge and dead plants.



ORB-3 Beneficial Bacteria Packets for Ponds

ORB-3 Beneficial Bacteria is manufactured for Pond Perfections by Great Lakes Bio Systems, leaders in bacteria and enzyme cultures. We have created this bacteria over many years, and as a result have created a leading edge product for cleaning ponds, and formulated specifically for Canadian colder temperatures.

Ponds have a natural level of good bacteria which helps to clean and improve the health of the water. The quantity of natural bacteria may not be sufficient in ponds that have a high nutrient load, caused by extensive dead plants, algae and lower oxygen levels. By adding ORB-3 Professional bacteria to a pond you increase the bacteria therefore cleaning the water and speeding up decomposition of sludge.

Reduces E-coli in Swimming Ponds and Dugouts

Widely used in swimming ponds and dugouts to improve water quality.  Improves clearer visibility by removing floating partials in the water column therefore lowering nutrient load.

How it Works

Orb-3 contains specialized strains of fast-reproducing microbes and high-volume waste consumers that voraciously feed on excess nutrients. Formulated to stimulate the natural activity with additional species of fast-acting bacteria, Orb-3 Professional Bacteria attacks nutrients in the water column and sludge bed. Feeding on organics, odor-causing volatile, and waste from duck, geese, and fish that cause the muck to accumulate. 

Throw Orb-3 Bacteria Packets into the water on a calm day, and they will spread across the surface. The ORB-3 particles will take on water, and in sinking will contact algae floating in the water column. As nutrient levels decrease, oxygen levels increase, further cleaning the water. 

1/2 LB Packets or Pellet Form

ORB-3 Professional bacteria is available in a ½ LB packet that is thrown directly into the pond. A great simple to use product for larger ponds and lakes. Widely used in swimming areas in campgrounds to lower e-coli

The other form is pellets, used to spot treat problem areas. See Sludge Reduction Pellets for more information.
