    Speeds Up the Removal of Sludge & Muck Naturally

    Especially Helpful for Ponds That Have a Rock or Gravel Bottom & Where Vacuuming is Impractical MICROBE-LIFT/Sludge-Away is formulated specifically for the removal of organic bottom solids that are slow to degrade MICROBE-LIFT/Sludge-Away works faster at warm water temperatures, however, it may be used effectively at any temperature year-round Years in development, MICROBE-LIFT/Sludge-Away speeds the biological removal of slow-to-degrade organic waste matter from aquatic pond bottoms that may become toxic to fish and plant life. As organic solids accumulate on the pond bottom, they begin to break down releasing toxic gasses to the surrounding environment. These gaseous by-products endanger fish, marine life and plants. MICROBE-LIFT/Sludge-Away removes bottom organic sludge and muck-reducing or eliminating the potential harmful gaseous compounds-and helps clarify your pond water at the same time. MICROBE-LIFT/Sludge-Away may slightly discolor pond water for a short while. Rocks along the edge may darken but will return to their natural color.
    • Provides "rapid and natural sludge and muck removal"
    • 80% faster than competitive products
    • Binds phosphate
    • Organic and microbial based
    • Safe for fish, plants, pets and the environment
    • Helps improve pond clarity
    • 100% active ingredients
    • Disperses quickly
    MICROBE-LIFT/Sludge-Away Oxygen Demand MICROBE-LIFT/Sludge-Away will accelerate the solubilization and biological digestion of organic solids in your pond. As a result of this increased oxygen demand, the Oxygen Uptake Rate (OUR) in your pond will increase in the process, along with your aquatic life's need for oxygen.

    A Major Scientific Breakthrough Enriched with peat and humic acid, this revolutionary formula works faster & better with Less Mess & Cost and is easier to apply than bales, pillows and pads!
    • Matures pond water chemistry
    • Disperses quickly by simple broadcast of pellets into the pond or packing in a porous fabric sock and suspending in pond or available chamber in skimmer or filter
    • Buffers pH
    • Releases decomposition by-products immediately
    • Works year round
    • Recommended for use with all Microbe-Lift bacterial and enzymatic pond products
    • Provides a slow steady release of beneficial ingredients through natural activity
    MICROBE-LIFT/Barley Straw Pellets + is an environmentally responsible, cost-efficient pond conditioner that is a natural and organic way to a healthy pond environment! Barley straw and selected natural peats have been processed and packaged to make them easy and clean to apply. Manufactured using an exclusive proprietary pelleting process that eliminates the use of wheat, corn and other binders, the barley straw is harvested and stored under climatic conditions that assure the quality of these essential ingredients. MICROBE-LIFT/Barley Straw Pellets + works in much the same way as barley straw...only faster!  Whereas barley straw works by releasing certain natural chemicals as it biodegrades, so do the pellets in MICROBE-LIFT/Barley Straw Pellets +, only the breakdown compounds are released faster: dispersing equally throughout the water; reacting photochemically with sunlight; and activating humic acids to produce hydrogen peroxide-an oxidizing agent that also helps to keep the water clear-naturally and at a low level of release. The humic acid will also chelate metals such as copper or arsenic. MICROBE-LIFT/Barley Straw Pellets + are rich in organic peat which softens pond water-reducing nitrate and phosphate concentrations in the water column-and provides a buffering agent and ion attenuation in lined ponds that additionally gives them some beneficial properties of earthen ponds! Please note: MICROBE-LIFT/Barley Straw Pellets + will leave a residual on the bottom of the pond. The bacteria in the Microbe-Lift products as well as MICROBE-LIFT/Sludge Away will digest this organic residual. Also Note: Fish will not eat the barley pellets as they contain no food value.

    Lab Grade Calcium Hydroxide Ca (OH)2

    • Adds Calcium Ions Required by most Reef Inhabitants
    • Increases Alkalinity
    • Encourages Growth of Pink, Purple and Green Calcareous Algae
    • Elevates pH
    • Precipitates Phosphate
    All aquariums experience a significant amount of evaporation. You will regularly be adding "make up water" to replace the evaporated water. The salt in your tank does not evaporate, so do not add salt to your "make up water" mix. Always use R/O water, not tap water for your replacement water. Evaporation, plus protein skimmers, also depletes very important calcium. Frequently check the water level in your sump. Once your aquarium has been established, put a mark on the sump so you can easily see how much water has evaporated from the system. MICROBE-LIFT/Kalkwasser additions will also help to maintain the pH and alkalinity of your aquarium. The hydroxyl ions from the MICROBE-LIFT/Kalkwasser mix neutralizes some of the acids that accumulate in the system. An ideal pH range is between 8.2 - 8.3. Don't let your pH go above 8.5 during the day, although there will be a temporary rise when you add the MICROBE-LIFT/Kalkwasser mix. It is important not to let the pH rise above 8.6 (day time reading) even when the MICROBE-LIFT/Kalkwasser mix is added in. The safest way of monitoring and dispensing of MICROBE-LIFT/Kalkwasser is through a dispensing system. The ideal alkalinity is 7 to 10 dKH. The ideal calcium concentrate is between 2.5 - 3.75 meq/L.

    Available Sizes

    • 1 lb. (454 g.) (KALKSM) Treats up to 255 gal. (964 L.)
    • 4 lb. (1,814 g.) (KALKMD) Treats up to 1,020 gal. (3,861 L.)

    Caution

    • Calcium Hydoride should be handled with care as it is a caustic material.
    • When making your MICROBE-LIFT/Kalkwasser mix wear a dust mask or face filter.
    • Also wear gloves and eye protection.
    • Avoid contact with eyes and skin as the Calcium Hydoride is corrosive to skin and eyes.
    • Calcium Hydoride will cause irritation and inflammation to mucous membranes and respiratory passages.
    • In case of contact, immediately flush skin with large amounts of water or vinegar.
    • If Calcium Hydoride comes in contact with eyes, flush with water for a minimum of 15 minutes.
    • Call a physician and ChemTrec day or night at 1-800-424-9300.

    DOWNLOAD SDS A newly developed proprietary formulation that was developed to provide Iron in a chelated form easily available for caulerpa and calcareous algae. It will replace the iron normally lost through, filtration, livestock absorption, and protein skimmers. MICROBE-LIFT/Chelated Iron (Plus Buffer) will help maintain the reef water to a proper pH balance. Why MICROBE-LIFT/Reef & Marine Supplements? Sea salt mixes can contain 70 or more of natural saltwater’s essential and trace components. These help sustain water quality for the fish, corals, invertebrates and/or macro-algae as nature intended. In an aquarium “closed system”, protein skimmers, ozonizers, carbon filters and dynamic biochemical processes can reduce the important components, including calcium, strontium, molybdenum, iodide, bromide, iron, vitamins, amino acids and essential trace minerals. Iron is beneficial to all photosynthetic invertebrates and plants. Improves growth, coloring, and expansion.

    An Aqueous NANO Reef Buffer System & an Ionically Balanced Combination of Necessary Trace Elements in One Simple System!

    Automatically Sets pH to 8.2 - 8.3 MICROBE-LIFT/Nano Complete is ionically balanced with trace elements for Nano Reef systems and it will create a buffered system as well. A pH of 8.0 to 8.3 and an alkalinity of 2.9 to 4.0 meq/L. (8 to 11 dKH) is necessary for salt water and reef aquariums (fish only marine aquariums need to maintain 3.5 to 5.5 meq/L. or 10 to 14 dKH) and calcium levels should be at 400 to 450 ppm. Test calcium and alkalinity levels and adjust to your individual system. Do not add more than 0.5 mL per gallon per 12 hour period. Add calcium and this product for optimal results. If magnesium is low use MICROBE-LIFT/Magnesium Supplement. Regular water changes are recommended. You should use the MICROBE-LIFT line of reef products to simultaneously replace any minerals that are low. NANO-Reef tanks (under 20 gals.) and PICO-Reef tanks (under 5 gals) are very popular due to their lower initial cost set up. However, the smaller the tank, the more rapidly water conditions may deteriorate. Smaller tanks are less forgiving than tanks holding larger volumes of water. Optimum water conditions are a necessity for good mini-reef systems. Where possible start with R/O water. If tap water is used be sure to condition the water with MICROBE-LIFT/XTreme or MICROBE-LIFT/Dechlorinator +. Routine water changes are a necessity in reef tanks. Calcium and Alkalinity are an important part of the reef system.
