We reduced the pollution parameters in the water and harmful bacteria and harmful microorganisms approached almost zero. We have achieved very successful results. While doing these studies, we apply our product as a liquid. In addition, we have an application in the form of mud balls, which we call regular swing balls, and we also affect the mud at the bottom of the lake. We carry out these studies to prevent pollution, turbidity and odors in our lakes and ponds.
