VitaStim MD Pellets are slow-releases pellets that sink down into the muck to deliver essential bio-stimulants and indigenous bacteria. They penetrate and degrade pond muck by stimulating naturally-occurring bacteria and adding sludge-eating cultures. This product works faster than any other on the market today!

VitaStim MD Pellets are made to be "tossed in" and sink to the bottom. When they sink into the muck the bacteria produce enzymes that speed up the breakdown of organic waste. They contain safe and beneficial bacteria, and will not harm aquatic species, fish, waterfowl or people. Use just around beaches & docks or treat entire bodies of water. Can eliminate the need for manual dredging savings thousands of dollars. No EPA or regional wetland permits necessary because it is 100% organic. Spread by hand or with a spreader mounted on a boat for large areas.
