Pond Logic® Muck Defense® tablets digest accumulated organic debris, also known as pond muck, that reside at the bottom of your water garden removing excess nutrients, improving water clarity and eliminating noxious odors. Upon application, the Muck Defense® tablets sink below the surface of the water releasing beneficial bacteria which instantly begin digesting debris. Muck Defense® is great at removing hard to reach muck from the bottom of gravel & rock pond bottoms. All the decaying organic material adds to your nutrient load, which in time can create algae blooms. Muck Defense® reduces the waste and eliminates pond odors to keep your pond clear and balanced.

I started using Muck Defense in my ponds last season and continued again this year. I've found that the amount of sludge is very little to absolutely none on the pond's bottom.

My grandkids love to walk barefoot into my watergarden, but they havent been going in because of the "yucky stuff" on the bottom. I used Muck Defense following the directions and what a difference! Now I cant keep the grandkids out!

Muck Defense ate away a lot of the muck from my pond's bottom. It also helped with the odors that my ponds were giving off. Great product. I will definitely recommend to my fellow pond friends.


Excellent product!

We installed our water feature a little over a year ago. This spring when the ice melted, there was about 3" of muck over the bottom. After two treatments with muck pellets, the bottom is clean & you can see the rocks again. This is a great product and we intend to continue using it!


Good Start

Very good stuff. Really works. I have a 600 gallon pong with two red-earred sliders. With the heat this summer, they were eating alot, ther fore fouling the water alot. Odor was strong. Muck congealed on filters, had to clean every two to three days. Goldfish ate alot of stuff off the filters. Still somewhat of an odor. I would like to get rid of that.


Muck Defense is Great!!!!

I have purchased the muck defense tabs two times now...and they are the best for dealing with my pond that is 1500 gallons. These tabs do help with controlling the muck and also with water clarity....I love these tablets. Just throw them in the water and forget about it.

I purchased this with trepidation. Not sure anything could cure my spring woes. I was wrong. It has only been about a month and the string algae is gone, and the pond clarity is back to where I can see the Koi at the bottom. I will keep watching the pond status but I am a customer for life now. btw, Pond is roughly 3000 Gallons
