Eco Pond Rescue News

Beneficial Bacteria
Pinellas County residents are restricted unless otherwise advised.

Eco Pond Rescue uses a blend of beneficial bacteria that works well in shallow ponds with warmer water. Our bacteria has passed the State Of Florida's fish toxicity testing and is produced by one of the largest and most respected labs in the United States.

Algae blooms survive and occur because of nutrient overload from runoff and stormwater. Man's impact on the health of your water is quite detrimental and is exaggerated by fertilization, grass clippings, organic loading, pollution, rain, sun and time.

The idea behind beneficial bacteria comes from the wastewater industry where bacteria is used to reduce nitrogen and other nutrients. By adding the bacteria to your lake or pond, the algae does not have as much food to grow and live on, thereby reducing its "hold" on your lake or pond.

Beneficial bacteria must be used with aeration, otherwise the risk of a fish kill can increase.

Proper dosing is based on the size and depth of your pond or lake. This is measure in "Acre Feet". An acre foot is one acre of water one feet deep. Scroll to the bottom of the page to learn how.

We recommend 1 lb per acre foot per month with an initial loading dose of 4 lbs per acre foot the first month. The loading dose is to re-establish beneficial bacteria in the water column and lake bottom. The algaecide and herbicide treatments destroy both the good and bad bacteria indiscriminately. The loading dose helps to overcome years of chemical treatments. The dissolved oxygen must be above 4 for the loading dose. To test for D.O. a simple kit can be purchased from LaMotte or Hach

$8.00 per lb

How To Estimate Acre Feet

1 Acre Foot = 1 Acre of water 1 foot deep.

Either estimate or measure the average depth of your lake. For example: if your lake starts at the shore line and reaches a depth of 5 feet in a gentle slope ( you can take as many measurements as you like, the more you take the more accurate you are), you would have 5 measurements of

1 foot
2 foot
3 foot
4 foot
5 foot

Add them together and divide by the number of depth readings. In this case it would be

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 15
15 / 5 = 3

You would have an average of 3 feet.

Now measure the AREA of the pond or lake. Google Maps is an excellent way to do this since they have a measurement tool on all their maps.

To find the area of somewhat square or rectangular lake it is simply Length X Width.
To find the area of a round lake or pond it is the Radius (Half the diameter) squared X 3.14

So if you had a square(ish) pond that was 400' X 420'

AREA = 400 X 420 = 168,000 Square Feet

Now take that number and divide by 43,560 (number of square feet in an acre)

168,000 / 43,560 = 3.85 Acres.

Take the amount of acres and multiply by your average depth.

3.85 X 3 = 11.55 Acre feet.
