Let’s Compare Muck Pellets and Muck Tablets
Muck pellets and muck tablets are designed to do 1 thing, get rid of muck buildup on the bottom of lakes and ponds.
Generally speaking, they both do a good job at eliminating muck, but does one have an advantage over the other? If so, what are the advantages?
First, let's define what is considered muck so we know exactly what muck pellets and tablets are designed to get rid of.
At Weeders Digest, we define muck as decomposing and dead organic material that has dropped down to the lake bottom.
Dead leaves, dead weeds, dead grass and fish waste are all great examples of what muck is.
How Do Muck Pellets and Muck Tablets Work?
Muck tablets and pellets are a combination of natural beneficial bacteria, enzymes and vitamins that stimulate the biological activity at your lake bottom.
These muck tablets or pellets sink and settle in the muck at the bottom of your lake or pond and begin eating away at the muck by releasing beneficial bacteria and nutrients that thrive off of muck.
So What's The Difference Between Muck Pellets and Muck Tablets?
The main differences between ShoreTech muck tablets and pellets are:
1. Muck tablets have a higher concentration of focused bacteria whereas pellets have a variety of bacteria but a lower concentration amount.
This difference makes a noticeable impact on the results you get from muck tablets over muck pellets.
2. Muck tablets are heavier and more compact so they sink further down into the bottom sediment layer, establishing a healthy microbiota at the water-to-sediment interface that accelerate the digestion of organic matter and improve water quality and clarity.
Since muck tablets sink further down into the sediment, they are ideal for bodies of water that have a lot of water movement as the muck tablets stay where you want them to.
Furthermore, because muck tablets are heavier they can be tossed further into your lake or pond.
If you have a lot of muck sitting at the bottom of your lake or pond, muck tablets are going to do a better job at getting rid of the muck faster.
On the flip side, if you have a lot of muck floating on top of the water like dead leaves and dead algae, muck pellets work better at decomposing them.
