How does EM do this?
EM comprises a mixture of micro-organisms; Amongst then are photorophic bacteria - these derive there energy from sunlight and are extreemly efficient at breaking down organic material into a form that can be used by the other microbes in EM.
As a result they will convert anoxious mud into a mineralised form.
Leaf matter in ponds
Where a pond is surrounded by trees, a major problem is the leaf matter that falls into the water. The leaves settle on the bottom, do not rot and with time will both reduce the depth of the pond. In addition, the water quality detriorates due to the release of tanins from the leaves - this both turns the water acid and through 'acid binding' locks up nutrients - this eventually results in an enviroment devoid of animal life.
To remedy the situation, one either has to remove the trees or dredge the pond - the latter is costly and requires the disposal of all the waste.
By applying EM, this situation can be reversed as the EM will hep to break down the leaf litter.
Ultrasonic Algal Control
We are now the UK distributor for the new range of digital ultrasonic products manufactured by ImpactTec of Germany.
The Pond-Tec and Pool-Tec range take ultrasonic control of algae to another level and are the only ultrasonic products on the market that can be 're-programmed' on site to cope with the most stubborn of algal species which other ultrasonic products are unable to control.
Ultrasonic treatment of algae is both environmentally friendly and cost-effective method of eliminating algae in lakes, ponds and swimming pools. It is also effective at eliminating water borne pathogens such as E.coli and Legionella in water treatment plants and cooling systems as well as biofilm on submerged surfaces.
Available in either 12v DC or 240v AC , we also offer solar/wind power supply options for the 12v DC range.

A healthy aquatic environment is a delicate balance between its 'organic' and 'inorganic' constituents.
A common problem is that a water body has too much organic material present - this settles to the bottom where it forms silt and sludge. This then becomes the home for anaerobic bacteria which feed on the organic material, producing methane and hydrogen sulphide gas - making the mud anoxious and locking up nutrients.
EM is extreemly efficient at breaking down the silt and mineralising the organic material, so that it an be used by other microbes which in turn become feed for zooplankton and other invertegrates, which are in turn become food for fish.
