Microbe Lift PL






Microbe-Lift PL is Specially Formulated for Decorative Fish Ponds, Lagoons, and Smaller Water Features.

Microbe-Lift/PL offers continued biological activity even in water temperature under 55°F (12°C). Microbe-Lift PL is Environmentally Friendly.



Speeds the removal of all organic waste matter in ponds by adding a select group of microbes that increase the rate of organic breakdown and improve filter performance.

MICROBE-LIFT/PL contains denitrifiers that function without oxygen. These select microbes can remove pond nitrates by converting nitrate to nitrogen gas that bubbles harmlessly into the atmosphere under the anoxic conditions in pond filters and biofilms.


For best results in your pond, you should maintain a balanced pH. Unlike other products in the market place today, Microbe-Lift/PL will still be effective even if your pH is high or low.


When to use

Any time your pond water is not as clear as you’d like, the temperature is over 45°F (8°C.), there is sediment buildup on the bottom of your pond or your pond is not cycling. Add MIC ROBE-LI FT®/PL to your pond to break down and degrade all waste organic matter, assuring improved environment for aquatic life and plants. MIC ROBE-LI FT®/PL seeds pond water, filters and establishes necessary bio-films in filters and on pond surfaces removing unwanted waste matter and clarifying pond water fast! MIC ROBE-LI FT®/PL will also reduce and eliminate any pond odor. As the organic waste matter in your pond - i.e., dead plant life, excessive fish food and fish waste - is broken down by pond biology, the waste matter is converted to ammonia in a process called Ammonification. As the ammonia levels build in your pond, it can become toxic to fish and marine life and must be biologically removed quickly. Nitrification - the natural, biological ammonia removal process - is done by a group of microbes called nitrifying bacteria. Nitrifying bacteria are very slow to grow (requiring as much as 18 hours for a single cell division compared to every 45-60 minutes for waste degraders) and often require weeks to naturally develop the necessary population to convert all the ammonia produced in your pond.

The #1 water clarifier asked for by brand name. Does the work of 3-4 competitive products. The only pond product with photosynthetic microorganisms. Safe if pets drink out of a pond treated with PL.

Botanical gardens, flower gardens and water gardens rely heavily on the activity of microorganisms to stay ecologically balanced. Nature needs these hard working biological "recyclers" to keep organic wastes and excess nutrients from accumulating to the detriment of your pond.

The benefits include: clean, clear water which keeps your aquatic life healthier and reduces the potential for infection or loss.


Micobe-Lift products contain nothing harmful to man, wildlife or the environment. This claim is backed by with toxicity studies, bioassays, etc. all of which show that Microbe-Lift products are among the safest products available anywhere.
