Remove Bottom Sediments from Your Pond

Every pond is in a dying process the moment it is created. Leaves off of trees, weeds and algae, and other organic matter travel to the bottom of the pond, taking the form of MUCK. These sediments gradually fill in the pond and are the direct cause of the many problems that pond owners have. Decomposing sediments (MUCK) contains toxic gases and harbors nutrients that cause excessive weed and algae problems, which deteriorates the ecosystem of a pond. Now there is a unique, efficient, and economical way of removing the MUCK and restoring new life to your pond. Let's compare the old solution with the new solution and you decide which is the better approach.

The Old Solution - Mechanical Dredging

Mechanical dredging is most effective when the pond has been completely drained and the bottom sediments have had time to dry. This means all aquatic life must either be relocated or killed off. If the pond is dredged wet, as soon as the dredge hits the sediments, the sediments are so fine they explode into the water column. This kills off most of the existing aquatic life and leaves the pond a black, mucky mess. Once the dredging is finished, the sediments then settle back to the bottom ofthe pond, and much ofthe dredging benefits are lost.

Heavy Equipment Cons
  • Aquatic life is killed or relocated.
  • Extensive damage to the landscape.
  • Equipment hindered by houses, power lines, telephone poles, and mature trees.
  • The cost in many cases is prohibited and most mechanical dredgers will not even consider smaller ponds.
  • Not easily permitted, or banned.

The New Solution - Organic Sediment Removal Systems

High-volume suction pumps are used with our patented suction head to remove the bottom sediments. This not only removes the sediments, but also the toxic gases, nutrients, and foul orders caused by anaerobic bacteria decomposing the organic sediments. The bottom is restored to its original depth. The process is extremely efficient. It can also remove loose clay, rocks, and sand, freeing up covered springs, irrigation systems, culverts, and cisterns.

The Results Are Crystal Clear
  • The restoration of the natural bottom without disturbing existing aquatic life.
  • A dramatic reduction of toxic gases, nutrients, weeds, and algae.
  • An expanded living space for aquatic life and a richer environment.
  • A cost of up to 75% less than mechanical dredging without damage to existing landscape.
  • Cleaner water and a healthier ecosystem, increasing property values.
  • A great reduction in chemical usage.
