Water management & water treatment specialists
BioRemedy is an Australian company that has specialised in both water management and water treatment solutions for fresh water bodies and wastewater facilities since 1975. We focus on non-toxic and environmentally friendly solutions, with the object being to truly support our ecosystems and, more specifically, our water bodies. The health of lakes, ponds and dams is vital for the maintenance of ecosystems, and the overgrowth of algae and weeds poses a serious threat to this purpose. The overgrowth of plants can disrupt natural processes and may also endanger plant life, wildlife and human life. Wastewater facilities must be maintained and monitored, as neglect can give rise to the production of dangerous levels of hydrogen sulphide.
In order to maintain the integrity of water bodies, BioRemedy offers a range of mitigation and water management options. These are particularly attractive for property owners and councils. BioRemedy has a proven reputation for workable solutions that are certain to suit. In fact, we do not recommend a solution unless we know that it will work – 100% guaranteed. We have provided water management and water treatment solutions for golf courses, nurseries, agricultural dams, poultry farms and residential homes, as well as many councils whose municipal sewage systems demand due attention and care.
Once a client engages us, and as soon as we’ve gathered an understanding of their specific problem, we can tailor a customised solution that will satisfy their needs. BioRemedy is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ company, nor do our solutions subscribe to that way of thinking. We know all water bodies are unique and require specific – not general – attention and investigation, and our treatments are a reflection of this. The team at BioRemedy is so successful, in part, due to the varying skillsets its members boast. Bolstered by backgrounds in engineering, applied science and microbiology, we can call on extensive experience and knowledge to recommend real-world solutions to fix your problems.
Examples of water management solutions
The prevailing cause of overgrown algae and weeds in lakes, ponds and dams is a reduction in oxygen that results in the accumulation of bottom sludge and a stagnant water body. The best water management solution to combat this is to remove a good portion of the overgrown weeds mechanically, and then use a pond pump or solar pond aerator to mix the water from top to bottom. Ultimately, this will increase the amount of oxygen in the [water] body, which will allow the degradation process to recommence naturally.
The issue with stagnant pools of water is that when they become such, they no longer house sufficient oxygen for bacteria to degrade the algae and other plant detritus. It all backs up and results in a very smelly and ‘visually offensive’ water body, detrimental to both water and wildlife. Aeration is the key to returning these water bodies to a healthy condition, in that it removes or reduces the algae overgrowth and thereby supports wildlife and our ecosystem at large.
