It is already known that Rinagro’s products have an indirect positive influence on water quality. However, we were recently shaken by the announcement that we can also directly influence and improve water quality…

One of our colleagues drew our attention at the staff meeting last summer to his experiences with what our bacteria in his pond had meant. Our liquid could mean that algae (duckweed and filamentous algae) and certain water plants are no longer able to survive in this environment. To be able to substantiate this, we first have to do extensive experiments and research.

Based on this, we started the first tests in September. With both the entire liquid and also with pure bacteria. Both variants are used in different and increasing doses, after which an optimal effect can be determined.

In the first months, the observations were recorded every 3 to 4 days, after which this was scaled down to a frequency of observation every 1 to 2 weeks. The first results were already visible after 2 weeks. The green water was actually clear again!

But then winter set in. At this time of year, there are certain plants that, by virtue of their nature, rot anyway. In this case we speak explicitly about the duckweed. However, then the question is whether the germination of the remaining cells will also disappear or will be suppressed. So the key question is, will they come back in the spring? Or do we have to treat again in the spring?

We can ask ourselves the same question with various types of algae in the water. However, we cannot say anything concrete about this at the moment, so it remains to be seen what will happen to the water in 2023 and, of course, for the sake of reliability, we will let it continue until 2024.

As soon as we have more news about the progress of these trials and as soon as the overall experiment comes to an end, we will inform you. Want to know more in the meantime? Feel free to contact us or ask one of our colleagues.
