Application of Shock Treatments

blue divider line for aquatic probiotic water treatment


When algae is overabundant and you want fast results or your lake/pond is bordering on eutrification, with dying fish, you can increase aeration and treat with one of the ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 1000 line formulas at three (3) to five (5) times the dosage suggested on our dosage charts. This will speed up reduction of organic nutrients in the water.

When ammonia levels are high and rapid reduction is desired, ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 1100 at a dosage of 3 to 5 ppm (the CF 1100-50x concentrate is applied at a dosage of 0.06 to 0.1 ppm ) should be recommended, after the BOD has been reduced below 200 ppm (a normal lake or pond will not exceed this level unless industrial runoff is a problem). This product provides an extra boost of nitrifying bacteria specifically selected to bring about nitrification of ammonia nitrogen. Under anaerobic conditions in the soil at the bottom of the lake/pond Nitrosomonas europaea, one of the strain in this formula, will carry out denitrification, helping to complete the nitrogen cycle.

Your Alken-Murray representative will evaluate the site conditions in conjunction with water analysis tests, and, after consulting with Alken-Murray support staff, will prescribe a custom solution for your lake/pond, utilizing ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 1000 line formulas.

The only ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® product prescribed for aquatic habitats that must NEVER be overdosed, and should be applied exactly as directed on its product bulletin, is the Cyanobacteria treatment, ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® SUPPLEMENT C (CF 1015).

Provided that there is sufficient oxygen in the system, there is no danger of overdosing (even at 50 times normal dose) any other ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® product.
