Making green pond clear
Bacta Clear pond bacteria for a clear pond
Simon van der Velde

Keeping it simple is what it's all about. The world of pond care resembled a jungle, full of different products - half with an "A," half with a "B," and then those special varieties for koi or swim ponds. Too complicated, I thought. That's why I am proud to introduce: BACTA CLEAR.

 

Why lose yourself in a maze of products when one hero can suffice? BACTA CLEAR is your all-in-one solution. It not only starts up your pond, but also cleans the bottom sludge, gives your plants exactly what they need and keeps both suspended and filamentous algae at bay. And that's not all. BACTA CLEAR goes further by efficiently breaking down excess fish food, feces, decaying leaves and dead algae, making your pond a model of biological balance.

 

Thanks to a carefully selected blend of multiple bacterial strains, BACTA CLEAR ensures crystal clear water and keeps algae growth firmly in check. It is completely eco-friendly and safe for humans, plants and animals. Simply put, with BACTA CLEAR you get peace back into your garden and into your life.

The best pond bacteria for the pond: BACTA CLEAR

In a pond, nitrifying bacteria are important. These bacteria help convert waste products into CO2. This is necessary for the growth of oxygen plants, which need CO2 to grow. BACTA CLEAR contains not 1 but 2 strain bacteria that both ensure clear water and prevent algae growth. In addition, BACTA CLEAR is 100% eco and not harmful to humans, plants and animals.

Buying GH+ for your pond: unnecessary expenses and potential risks

GH+ is a product that increases the general hardness (GH) of the water in ponds and aquariums by adding magnesium and calcium ions. While these minerals are important for fish and plant health, overuse of GH+ can be harmful and upset the delicate balance of your pond water. Instead of relying on chemical solutions, we recommend a more natural approach using BACTA CLEAR, which helps maintain healthy water chemistry without the risks associated with artificially manipulating water hardness.

Natural alternatives to GH enhancement in your pond

Instead of using GH+, invest in a healthy pond environment that naturally stabilizes water hardness. Plants such as hornwort and waterweed play a crucial role in this process by absorbing and releasing minerals, while also providing habitat for pond inhabitants. In addition, beneficial bacteria introduced through BACTA CLEAR enhance the breakdown of organic waste, contributing to a naturally balanced pond. This approach reduces dependence on GH+ and promotes a healthier, self-regulating pond environment.

Why BACTA CLEAR is the smart choice over GH+

GH+ can be useful in some situations, but often it is not the best solution for a long-term balanced pond. BACTA CLEAR offers an effective alternative by supporting natural processes essential for maintaining water quality and hardness. This product not only helps stabilize water chemistry, but also promotes a healthy pond ecosystem. By choosing BACTA CLEAR, you avoid the risks of excessive chemical intervention and support sustainable pond health.
