Microbe-Lift PL Gel Filter Pad Bacterial Inoculant (Vegetative Cultures)The MICROBE-LIFT/PL Gel is the first product that puts the bacteria where you want it and it stays there. MICROBE-LIFT/PL Gel will quickly attach to and populate the filter material of your choice. This will help rapidly establish the necessary biological activity in your filter to stabilize your pond’s environment. MICROBE-LIFT/PL Gel will also help restore biological activity to your filter after you clean or change the media. It easily applies to filter pads and media without running or getting messy. It contains the same broad-spectrum bacteria found in the very popular MICROBE-LIFT/PL. This Bacteria Gel contains naturally occurring biopolymers, which help the organisms attach to media allowing for 80% reduction in filter start-up time.
Treats up to 5,000gal / 5 treatments.
Inoculate (spread) PL/GEL directly on the filter pad or media. The PL/GEL will absorb into the pad/media by letting it set 1-2 hours before inserting back into the filter or skimmer. After insertion, turn off recirculating pump for 1-2 hours, provided water can maintain adequate oxygenation without circulation for this amount of time. Repeat application of PL/GEL with each cleaning/replacement of filter pads/media; when nitrate levels exceed 0.6 mg/L or as necessary to maintain optimum performance from your filter or skimmer.
