Ponds Maintainence with EM-1
The care of ponds can be difficult, however EM has the ability to clean ponds and waters that are exposed to external contamination. The entry of pollutants through rain water and the addition of oxygen-consuming substances are problems that need to be compensated by the eco system. The long-term effects of oxygen-consuming substances will be evident. With higher amounts of nutrients, a good growing medium for algae will be provided.
Traditional Pond Maintenance
A reduction of pollution is difficult and traditional pond maintenance can be expensive, sometimes needing complete restoration and is only used when the worst has already occurred.
EM-1 added to ponds can prevent expensive problems
EM-1 added to ponds can prevent expensive problems. EM-1 will:
EM-Activated Works Best
On average, for a healthy pond or water garden, EM-1® is applied once per month. We recommend the use of Activated EM-1®. The rate of application is 1 part Activated EM-1® for every 10,000 parts water. Higher concentrations are not necessary under normal conditions. Over time, the frequency of application can be decreased while maintaining the same ratio (applying every other month or 4 times per year). Allow several weeks for the Activated EM-1® to work. Some slime (muck) from the bottom will slowly rise to the surface. Leave it and let nature do its thing as it will disappear shortly.
EM IN Thailand
Thailand is a large exporter of prawns. In Thailand many prawn farmers use EM's to maintain the health of the prawn ponds. The dilution rates for EM in these ponds is 1 part EM to 1000 parts of water at weekly intervals.
