Artificial fish ponds typically build up various toxins and organic matter which naturally occur due to the decomposition of fish and organic waste products. The breakdown of these natural pollutants acts to cloud the pond’s water. Through applying Summit’s Clear-Water Pond Clay the pond curator can naturally remove these harmful by products.
The material contained in Summit’s Clear-Water Pond Clay is a natural occuring variety of clay called calcium montmorillonite. Harvested from natural deposits, calcium montmorillonite contains a plentitude of minerals, which aid in the production of enzymes in all living organisms. Thus, these clays are termed living clays. For this reason, the application of Summit’s Clear-Water Pond Clay not only reduces the toxicity and turbidity of a pond’s water, but also increases the metabolic functions of the plants and animals living within.
