Initial Seeding Dosage:
This is the first dosage and will provide a significant boost to
the system. Double the maintenance dosage determined below.
Many water systems will not need treatment during the cold winter
months. Anticipate doing a seeding dosage once a year in early
3-5 oz. per 1,000 gallons per week during months when the water
temperature is above 50 degrees F. Microorganisms are not
significantly active when temperatures are under 50 degrees F.
5 oz. per 1,000 gallons per week for systems in need of significant
organic reduction and systems with high stocking densities.
4 oz. per 1,000 gallons per week is the average dosage rate.
Most systems will do fine with this amount.
Handling and Storage:
Storage temperature of 40 degrees F to 75 degrees F is optimal.
Freezing should be avoided, as it will change the look and smell of
the bugs with a slight reduction in microbial count. High heat
(above 90 degrees F) should be avoided, especially long term exposure.
Shelf life is 18 months under optimal storage temperatures.
