Fastest growing pond maintenance tool in north America!! – Sludge or Muck Pellets

Sludge Pellets Order Form
Professional sludge or muck pellets are working well beyond expectations! used around the edges of the pond the weeds and algae are becoming less and less. The Canadian blend of beneficial bacteria, trace minerals and amino acids are consuming the sludge and preventing growth. Spreading the pellets around the edge puts the product right on the problem. Spread the pellets out about 15′ to cover the shore line.

In 2013 we developed the Professional sludge or muck  pellets and brought it to our customers in Canada. This is the next step in rejuvenating and helping to maintain good pond health. It is quickly becoming a valuable tool in reducing unwanted pond sludge or muck on beaches and swimming areas. A lot of customers who have tried it have doubled their orders, with comments like; You can see where you stopped the treatment areas. The weeds and algae have stopped growing in the area treated. You can see the tiny bubbles working after about 10 days. Very simple to just throw in and quick! Call – 519.367.5932 for more information

Professional Sludge or Muck Reduction Pellets For years we at Pond Perfections Inc. have been helping customers clean-up and regain the natural beauty of their ponds, lakes and swimming areas.  In 2014 we had a wonderful year with the sludge reduction pellets, we found that less sludge comes less weeds and algae. Swimming beaches had less muck to wade through, and fewer weeds growing. Professional sludge or muck reduction pellets are a special blend of amino acids, trace minerals and selected Canadian approved bacteria. These pellets were designed for ponds, lakes, and lagoons as a low-maintenance way to reduce sludge buildup. Professional sludge or muck reduction pellets are fortified with specialized Canadian DSL approved bacterial strains that are high volume waste consumers of muck and organic matter. These pellets have a broad trace mineral base and an organic catalyst to increase productivity of the bacteria in each pellet. The pellet itself is used to take the active ingredients down to the bottom sludge for maximum effect.

“Sludge or Muck reduction pellets offer the customer control over organic material in their ponds.”

Sludge reduction pellet case study

During the summer of 2009 a lake and pond management company in the midwest used sludge reducing pellet to clean-up a lake beach area. Samples of the sludge were taken in April, July and August then sent to a state certified laboratory and tested for levels of organics. Pellets were applied once a week for four weeks and every other week until the end of August. The pellets were applied at the recommended application rates throughout the test.

“The result was a 60% reduction in overall organic content.”


Thought you would like this demo/lab test. Interesting information for pellet effectiveness. A quick note with an update on our project. While they are still in test mode, I wanted to share the information with you and the manufacture to support the traditional “team” approach. Just wondering if there is any potential to further impact the sludge degradation by doing a secondary application? (dump some more sludge pellets into the existing sample). Is this kind of remediation “dose responsive”? Let me know your thoughts however the results so far look pretty good. This morning I have received the information from them as followed. We are still at testing stage, not able to commit on the volume yet. Our fist lab test result had indicated sludge reduction between 30-50%, which is good. See picture below: (left: Blank Right: after one week with sludge pellet)


Sludge is reduced from 900 mL level to 500 mL level after one week. Conditions: Temperature is kept 30-33oC, aerated, and we add sludge pellet to the sample. We kept blank for final comparison (see sample on beaker glass, right picture). Treated sample color had turned from black into brown during treatment. We will do second batch of test with different condition. Answer from Tom Repp which is right on target. Thanks for the update. A 30% to 50% reduction is considered very good results in such a short time. In terms of remediation the best results are likely to come after 2 weeks time. The week 1 results compared to the week 2 results will help us determine how much more remediation can take place. Dose responsiveness has more to do with the level of volatile organics in the sludge. As those are converted and ultimately consumed the rate of remediation will slow. To test this a second application of pellets can be applied after two weeks time. So to directly answer your question sludge probably isn’t dose responsive as grease or oil but probably will help.


Organic matter reduction program

Method: grab samples of the substrate within the Lauderdale lakes, Baywood ass. Beach area were taken before, during and after the test period. Composite sediment samples from 4” to 24” of water were used for the test. Samples were sent to a state certified laboratory, where they were dried at 105C to remove the water and weighted. Followed by ignition in a muffle furnace at 550C for 2 hours, the remaining weight is mineral content ( sand, metals, clay, etc). Total product used 24 lb 4 lb per week for the first 4 weeks 2 lb every other week thereafter Beach eara sampled 15’x40’ April 28, 2009 sample – 1.51% of the sample was organic in nature July 17, 2009 sample – 1.4 % of the sample was organic in nature August 27, 2009sample – 0.9 % of the sample was organic in nature Results; the sludge reduction pellets used in the beach area appeared to have reduces the overall organic content significantly. Prior to the addition of the product, organic matter composition was 1.68 times greater then the composite at the end of the testing period.
