Using a unique two-stage process exclusive to us, this natural, microbial treatment starves algae of nutrients and digests the resulting dead organic matter, leaving your pond crystal clear.
Step 1. Kick Start Oxygenator – natural bicarbonates and related substances release oxygen, starving algae and weed. You'll see results in just 3-4 days.
Step 2. Pure Aqua – introduces a natural biome of bacteria to maintain pond clarity. These degrade muck and slime that has accumulated in the bottom of pond, clarifying water and establishing long term populations.
Note that to work, the microbes needs the water to be 10°C or more to work - So use April to October.
Pond Clear Pro 2 Step consists of two parts, Kick Start and Pure Aqua which contains specially prepared materials encapsulated with selected strains of bacterial cultures. These attract dispersed particles in your pond and form a core on which the organisms grow, assisting in the generation of sludge which settles out to leave clear water.
Odours such as ammonia and sulphur are very rapidly taken up by Pond Start, while heavy metals and other toxic substances are reduced so greatly improving water quality.
Some benefits of Pond Clear Pro can be observed immediately after dosing commences, although major improvements in water clarity frequently take a few weeks to become apparent. By using Kick Start as a pre-treatment, you’ll see results much more quickly.
How to use Kick Start and Pure Aqua
PRIOR TO APPLICATION – If your pond has excessive blanket weed, first remove as much as possible and dispose of it on the compost heap. This will prevent the build-up of dead organic material, and therefore improve microbial digestion and reduce oxygen consumption.

Step 1, Day 1 – Add Kick-Start Oxygenator, the Fast-Acting Pre-treatment
Step 2, Day 3-4 – Add Pure Aqua with ‘Zeolite Ultra’ to both extend and enhance performance.
Suitable for all pond types including fish ponds, wildlife ponds and natural swimming pools. May also be used in water butts and tanks to eliminate algae.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR FISH OWNERS
If you have fish in your pond, it is critical that you DO NOT OVERTREAT with the Pure Aqua as the microbes consume oxygen in digesting nitrates and nitrites, and dead organic matter.
It is important to watch for signs of stressed fish and aerate if necessary.
If you have a small pond with fish, while the Kick Start Oxygenator will help increase oxygen levels, the subsequent application of Pure Aqua may deplete them. We recommend that in such an instance, if you do not have a pump, that you add the Pure Aqua at daily intervals over a period of 4-5 days, keeping an eye on the fish.
Should you have fish and they begin to look stressed, here are some suggestions for quickly increasing oxygen levels
