Initial Seeding Dosage:
2 to 4 oz. per 1,000 gallons. This is the first dosage and will provide a significant boost to
the system. Many water systems will not need treatment during the
cold winter months. Anticipate doing a seeding dosage once a
year in early spring.
1 to 2 oz. per 1,000 gallons every one to two weeks or as needed during months when the water temperature is above 50 degrees F. Microorganisms are not significantly active when temperatures are under 50 degrees F.
2 oz. per 1,000 gallons per week for systems in need of significant organic reduction and systems with high stocking densities.
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. Keep away from direct sunlight.
Shelf life is 18 months under optimal storage temperatures.
