Bacterial-based pond products – like the Envii Pond Range – work by using task-specific strains of bacteria which digest organic waste. This organic waste is the reason we get water problems like green water, blanket-weed and pond sludge.

The process starts with a singular bacterium which produces enzymes that digest waste. As the enzymes digest waste the bacterium grows and splits into two. This process repeats which means that the bacteria grow logarithmically (i.e. 1 becomes 2, 2 become 4, 4 become 8).

The more bacteria you add the more waste they eat and when there is no more waste they sit dormant and wait for their next food source to be added.
