Regular use of ECOPROBIOTICS® assures the presence of an optimal microbial community to improve water quality.
The ECOPROBIOTICS® added to your lake digest both the solid and soluble pollution. The water clearing microorganisms in ECOPROBIOTICS® use these wastes as foods for their growth. The scientific literature shows that bacteria can take up nutrients faster and grow more rapidly than algae and aquatic weeds; this results in the bacteria out competing algae and weeds for available food. The by products of this natural water clearing process are water, carbon dioxide and bacterial biomass, which is rich in protein. In a lake with fish or invertebrates such as snails or crayfish there is very little accumulation of bacteria, because the animals eat the microbial biomass. Thus, pollutants are transformed by ECOPROBIOTICS® into beneficial invertebrates and fishes. The phosphorous, which is the major cause of excessive amounts of algae and aquatic weeds, is channeled into the faunal food web and thus less available to the algae. The ECOPROBIOTICS® can grow faster than pathogens leaving little niche space available for the undesirable strains. This is called competitive exclusion.
