ClearLake Pond & Lake Treatments

Naturally Effective Pond Treatments

ClearLake Pond Treatments, a Division of Keeton Industries, is known around the world as a high-quality manufacturer of beneficial bacteria, pond treatments, solar aeration, and electric aeration for managed aquatic environments. What began in the family garage over 50 years ago, ClearLake has since grown into a globally recognized leader in water quality management products for lakes, large ponds, golf courses, farm ponds and retention ponds. 

Today, most aquatic ecosystems are bombarded with excess nutrients from multiple sources, including urban and rural runoff, fertilizers, waterfowl and typical leaf fall from deciduous trees nearby. Unfortunately, the naturally occurring bacteria found in ponds and lakes often cannot keep up with this influx of nutrients. This leads to a shift in the natural balance in ponds and lakes and encourages the build-up of bottom muck, odor, cloudy water and poor water quality. Luckily, the solutions to these problems can be found in ClearLake Pond Treatments.

About ClearLake Pond Treatments

ClearLake Pioneering Research & Development

At ClearLake Pond Treatments, we know that lake and pond environments are highly dynamic ecosystems that rely on natural processes to maintain natural order. And while under normal environmental conditions, proper water quality is achieved through the activity of naturally occurring microorganisms and beneficial bacteria, our industrialized world poses more challenges to water quality management.

Our lab is managed by Senior Research Scientist, Susan Knudson, MPH, PH.D.. Susan has decades of bacteria and enzyme research—as well as development experience—and is charged with bringing innovative products to market.

Naturally Occurring Bacteria Can't Keep Up

Each year in spring, summer and especially fall, organic matter from grass clippings, pollen, leaves and twigs,  fall to the pond and sink to bottom. In addition, many ponds receive nutrients from other sources such as runoff, fertilizers, fish and waterfowl. Unfortunately, the naturally occurring bacteria cannot keep up with this influx of nutrients. This leads to a shift in the natural balance in ponds and lakes and encourages the build-up of bottom muck, odour, and poor water quality.

ClearLake Pond Treatments Gives Nature A Boost

ClearLake is intentional about taking a natural approach that integrates well with the way nature is intended to operate. All of the microbial species that we manufacture occur naturally in most ponds and lakes. We are simply introducing a larger quantity of those species to help the naturally occurring strains keep up with the increased workload.

You can rest assured, knowing that the bi-monthly or monthly application of ClearLake™ Muck Eliminator, ClearLake™ Pond & Lake Clarifier and  ClearLake™ Cold Water Clarifier will keep ponds and lakes clean, clear, and muck free naturally, without the worry of residual harsh chemicals.
