If you have pond problems,
you need a Nest!
An Earth-Friendly Boost for Bacteria
Harness the natural algae-fighting power of beneficial bacteria with a BioBoost Nest. These compact subsurface units are ideally designed to develop a dynamic biofilm for healthier water.
Bacteria Makes Water Better
Bacteria circulates in water, often without a place to call home. But when beneficial bacteria encounters a Nest, it rapidly multiplies and develops into a nutrient-hungry force.
As the bacteria devours excess nutrients in the water body, it depletes algae’s food source.
“Within a few weeks, I saw positive change, and within a few months, the results were dramatic.”

Part of an Earth-Friendly Aquatic Ecosystem
Nests are perfect if you’re looking for a non-chemical approach to maintaining healthy water. While there are times when chemical applications are unavoidable, a long-term approach of reducing nutrients offers more pond stability, lower maintenance costs and a safer aquatic environment.
- Durable, inert material with no leaching
- Non-clogging and maintenance-free
- Easy and quick to install
- Non-reliant on chemical treatments
- Safe for children, pets, fish and wildlife

Why Does My Pond Need a Nest?
If your pond is struggling with algae growth, invasive weeds, foul odor, fish deaths and murky water, you might have a nutrient problem.
You can fight nutrient overload by powering up your beneficial bacteria, which consumes these nutrients.
MORE BACTERIA = FEWER NUTRIENTS
Beneficial bacteria needs the right kind of material to colonize and multiply itself. And bacteria loves to colonize in a BioBoost Nest, where it creates a thick coating of “gunk”, known as biofilm.
What Exactly Is a Nest?
A Nest is a durable, subsurface structure of patented media, available with or without built-in aeration. Each Nest is crafted of cross-fluted channels full of fine nooks and crannies. The structures provide:
- Ideal environments for bacterial colonization
- Massive surface area for high bacterial population count
- Enclaved shelter for protection from flushing events
- Refuge and feeding grounds for young fish fry
