Algae Facts and Problems
Toxic Blue Green Algae -
Cyanobacteria is the scientific name for blue-green algae, it
is commonly know as "pond scum"
Cyanobacteria form in warm shallow, slow-moving or stagnant
(still) water. The scum or mass is made up of cells, which can
house poisons called cyanobacterial
toxins. When the algae cells die and burst they release the toxins
or poisons into the water.
of cyanobacteria forms in a body of water, it is called a
The toxic or poisonous compound inside the Cyanobateria
algae are called Microcystins.
are poisonous to both humans and livestock and have been know
to cause death or extreme sickness. Swimmers
can experience irritation of the skin.
are the most common of the cyanobacterial toxins found in water,
these toxins are the one that most often
are responsible for poisoning
animals and humans who come into contact with toxic blooms.
Children are especially susceptible because of their low body
mass, the toxins attack the liver and can cause serious damage.
these algae blooms mostly appear during the hot summer months
and have been most prevalent in the prairies, especially
Saskatchewan and Alberta.
like copper sulphate or any other treatment method that
causes the cells to break down and release their toxins should
not be used. Also remember these chemicals are often also harmful
and will kill beneficial organisms and plants as well.
The best way
to avoid the problems associated with cyanobacterial blooms is
by prevention, your best option is to stop the blooms
from forming before they become a serious risk to you and your
The best method
of prevention is to reduce the input of nutrients,
such as fertilizers, generally high
in phosphates, into the water source. If this is not possible
then there are now safe and cost effective ways to control
the algae blooms, such as clear pond and clear pond

Control for ponds, lakes and other water sources
for use in both Canada and the USA
Toxic Blue Green algae has
been causing serious problems in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba
this year. Many lakes, communities and farms in the USA are being
adversely affected by severely algae blooms, both from toxic
and non toxic types.
wished your ponds were clean and clear
middle of the summer ?
is now a better way to control the problem using cutting edge
eco friendly organic technology.
Clear Pond and Clear Pond Extreme are made
in Canada and offer a new ecologically friendly options to farmers, government,
lake communities and even back yard pond owners.
For control and total elimination
of both toxic Blue green Algae and regular green
algae's we Now offer an Ecologically friendly, non toxic alternative
to traditional chemical methods such as copper sulphate (which
also kills beneficially plants, insects, organisms and animals)
product uses natural enzymes , bacteria
and other organic compounds.
Clear Pond Extreme uses bio-augmentation, a non-chemical
and natural method
- to remove the nutrients that are vital to algae growth. The microbes
that are introduced ingest carbon, phosphorous, potassium and nitrogen
at an accelerated rate, which limits the nutrients available for
algae to consume. This process will starve the Algae from ponds
and even large lakes, leaving the water clear and
free of algae without the use of harmful chemicals. This
product will not harm fish and other natural pond/lake life

product works very fast and is economical as well as very easy
product is effective and economical enough to be used on
large lakes damaged
and polluted by agricultural or industrial
nutrient fed algae blooms, It can restore lakes
conditions for both the occasional users and communities living
Fish and wildlife can once again
thrive as sometimes nature
needs a little help to recover from our human made mistakes

Safe, Non-Chemical Organic Product
NOT harmeful to People, Pets, Fish or Livestock
Clear Pond Extreme uses bio-augmentation, a non-chemical and natural method - to remove the nutrients that are vital to algae growth. The microbes that are introduced ingest carbon, phosphorous, potassium and nitrogen at an accelerated rate, which limits the nutrients available for algae to consume. This control by competitive inhibition increases water clarity, reduces sludge and promotes overall better health for the aquatic environment.
Other Products that work well with Clear Pond:
OrganiZyme Concentrate (deodorizer) $82.00 per litre
will neutralize organic decay odors from ponds during treatment . Works very well and not much is needed to be effective. 100% organic and safe
UltraBioZyme Concentrate (Microbes) $80.00 per litre
Boosts the Microbial organism population of treated areas for increased digestions of nutrients and organic matter. water quality improves rapidly and bottom sediment layers are quickly reduced helping reduce further blooms and decomposition odors.
