Lysofoss Biological Water Treatment

Natural Pond and Dam Algae Treatment

Lysofoss is a biological treatment which assists in the natural breaking down, degradation and control of pollution in industry and agriculture. Lysofoss controls and reduces nutrient levels, working on the bottom which starves the algae. Lysofoss is a living organism, lying dormant until exposed to moisture. Being a product containing micro-organisms, Lysofoss requires a feeding environment of decaying organic matter to survive and work effectively. If this environment is not present, or there exists insufficient organic matter, the Lysofoss will die.

  • Can be used in ponds containing live plants and fish
  • Effectively controls "green water" algae blooms
  • Keeps ornamental ponds and water gardens clean and clear
  • Able to be used in both Salt and Fresh water
  • Do not use with fry, may be applied to brood stock as it can help to clean fish scales
  • Can be use in aquariums/ponds containing fish for human consumption

Lysofoss is selected strains of Bacterium, which contain no chemicals, it is environmentally friendly, and for the organic control of pollutants. Fights eutrophication, eliminates odors and controls Algae blooms in fish ponds, dams and water fowl lagoons. It reduces organic waste and foul odors in septic, grease traps, poultry sheds, avaries, animal pens, digester ponds, sewers and compost piles.

When algae dies it consumes great amounts of the pond’s supply of dissolved oxygen. Killing all the algae at once can be disastrous if proper precautions are not taken.
