A Guide to Pond Muck and Pond Sludge Removal

You rarely find muck on the bottom of public beaches because people constantly stir up the shoreline of public lakes, rivers and ponds. Weeds and debris are removed before they have a chance to settle, decompose, and turn to muck. The shoreline is continually agitated, infusing the environment with life-giving oxygen. An oxygen-rich environment is ideal for beneficial bacteria to thrive, yep, the very bacteria that consume pond muck.

While you may not want to open your lakefront or pond to hundreds of feet, we have the ideal pond tools and bacteria treatment to produce the same results.

Blow Muck and Debris Away

Weeds Away is a powerful muck and weed blower that creates a water current to push debris and muck away from your dock, marina, pier, or swimming areas. Operating in as little as 2 feet of water, the motor acts as a powerful directional blower that uses a continuous current of water to push muck and weeds away from shallow water areas. For easy pond sludge removal, Weeds Away can be mounted to a structure or an optional stand mount for areas without a dock. Easily change the direction of the water current to target different areas.

Use the Ultimate Underwater Mower

Designed with hooked teeth made of galvanized steel, the Muck Razer will help reduce muck and dig out the roots of aquatic weeds, giving you clean, weed-free swimming and beach areas. The Muck Razer is easy to use. Simply place the drum into the water and push back and forth across any muck or submerged aquatic vegetation.

The Muck Razer's hooked teeth activate muck breakdown and dislodge rooted vegetation. This agitation aerates the muck layer, allowing natural bacteria to accelerate muck decomposition, helping to produce a firm, muck-free pond bottom.
