VirescoTM Digester should be used when the organic waste in the pond is excessive and for dealing with specific problems, eg a build up of organic matter in under gravel filters and also in sand filters where the microbes will remove the build up of fats and protein on the surface of the sand particles.
Composition and Shelf Life
The products are all dry powders with unlimited shelf life. They are micro-organism based with the freeze dried micro-organisms being carried on fine particles of bran. The remainder of the product consists of support materials which, when added to water, dissolve to provide a food source for the microbes as they come back to life.
It is recommended that the Viresco™ products are dissolved in a small amount of pondwater, left for a few hours and then bulked up with more pondwater before being added direct to the water in different places around the pond. Ideally the powder should be mixed in the morning, left with an airstone and introduced into the pond in the evening. Intermittent use of an egg whisk can be made if an airstone is not available.
It is important to keep the mixture in a shaded place indoors. This is because the UV radiation from daylight could damage some of the bacteria in our products.
