Questions & Answers

11 Customer Questions

How long does the UV Light need to be turned off to allow for the Bacteria to get dispersed?
Answer by ChewyJul 01, 2018
The formula activates once added to your water so there is no need for pre-mixing or complicated preparations. For best results in your pond, you should maintain a balanced pH. Unlike other products in the marketplace today, Microbe-Lift PL will still be effective even if your p H is high or low. Microbe-Lift PL will be effective in any or all of the following conditions: with light or without light, with air or without air, low to high acidity, or low to high alkalinity. Microbe-Lift PL is a natural bacteria pond clarifier, grown with nirobacter bacterium. Microbe- Lift PL works alone. There is no need to purchase other products to achieve results on the side panel of this product.

How long is Microbe-Lift good. I have some from last summer. It was in a heated garage (40 degrees) all winter.
Answer by ChewyApr 07, 2019
If left unopened, this product has a shelf life of about 2 years when kept in temperatures between 40 degrees and 105 degrees. After opening, this product will be good for about 1 year.

Can I use this for an aviary bird bath that they also drink out of?
Answer by ChewyMar 30, 2019
This product is 100% safe, non-toxic, and chemical-free so you can use it with all fish, plants, invertebrates, and around the whole family, even your pets.

Once opened, does this need to be stored at a certain temperature to maintain its effectiveness?
Answer by ChewyAug 16, 2022
Biological products, such as Microbe-Lift/PL, should be protected from extreme heat and direct sunlight. It can withstand heat up to 105ºF before starting to die. A cellar, garage or shed (but not in an attic in the shed) should provide the necessary protection during summer months. The ideal storage temperatures are between 40-105ºF.

I am sure it works

unfortunately i have 5300 gallons... i misread the instructions and ended up treating for something like 5300 liters... about a fourth of what i truly needed. i doubled the second tretment when i discoveed the error. the fish seem to have benefited in that they are not gulping for air at the surface. i think i need to find a pond speciality store to help with the water and muck. i would just say be careful when figuring the dosage

New to Product

Just started using last year and not disappointed. Like all Microbe-Lift products. Just started using the Sludge Away (Remover) and expecting good results.

Turtle tank

My heater gave out and my bio filter died. My 180 gallon tank fouled and developed drain flies. In 24 hours this fixed it. Water is now clear has no smell and turtle looks healthier than ever...and let me tell you aquatic turtles are messy!

Microbe Lift Pl is the one to use

Before I started using this, I struggled with green water constantly, my amonia and nitrates were ok, but just on the safe level. Since I began using this monthly, the levels moved from safe to ideal.

Good Customer Service

I have tried many different products to clear my pond and other products from this same company but after talking to an actual person from the company, this her recommendation for my pond. She listened as I explained my problems and the things I had previously tried to clear my small garden pond. This product , adding more plants and a screen to keep leaves out and frequent filter cleaning has cleared my pond. She also refunded money for one product and suggested that I donate it to a charitable organization and sent form for a tax deduction.

This product is a must!!

Works better than the spring/summer cleaner by them. It will clear up murky cloudy water. Saw a review that says it didn't clean up green murky water -- the algae pea soup. That's not what this is for! I recommend getting a UV filter or clarifier for that although Microbe-Lift does have a product for algae. I've never used it but figure the light is cheaper in the long run.
