Sludgebuster contains selected bacteria to efficiently bio-degrade sludge and detritus in ponds, pipework, filters and areas hard to clean such as folds in pond liners. Regular use prevents accumulation of organic sediments and is ideal as a spring and autumn treatment.
Kusuri Sludgebuster is best applied weekly or at least once a month. Ideal for use in ponds with no bottom drain system where the build up of waste can cause poor water quality and clarity. Kusuri recommend using Sludgebuster once a month in this situation to keep the pond clean and hygienic, assisting in preventing bacterial infections.
Use 100ml per 1000 litres (220 gallons) of pond water.
For best results use above 15°C (59°F).
How To Use
Switch off UV steriliser until course of treatment is complete. Tighten cap and mix well. Use cup supplied to measure the correct dose. Add water to a clean watering can, then add Formalin/Malachite Premix. Gradually sprinkle across the surface area of the pond over a 1 hour period. Do not use below 12.5°C.
Do not use Malachite and Formalin Premix in conjunction with salt.
Stop feeding during the course of treatment because Malachite and Formalin will reduce the bacteria in the filter, continuing to feed will cause an ammonia spike.
Once the course of treatment is complete monitor your water parameters regularly and add good bacteria to restart your filters, such as Kusuri Filter Starter Boost or Kusuri Starter Pink.
