Water lily icon UltraClear® Winter Blend Biological Water Treatment

Winter can be harsh on the life in your water garden pool, especially with those extremely cold polar vortices or just darn cold temperatures that keep coming. UltraClear® Winter Blend has a blend of good bacteria that protects your water garden pond during the cold months. This will protect your fish from poor water quality in fall, winter, and early spring.

Add this when the temperatures are below 55° and the bacteria continue working below the ice and snow.

The biggest cause of fish death is ammonia. During the winter the Winter Blend will remove the toxic ammonia and helps to reduce sludge buildup. These bacteria are not the nitrifying bacteria found in the Spring and Summer UltraClear® formulations. These cold water bacteria absorb ammonia from the water during the entire winter months. When Spring comes, then the use of our UltraClear® line should be routinely used.

  • Start using when water temperature falls below 55 degrees F.
  • Use in ponds with water temperature down to 35 F.
  • Reduces Ionized Ammonia & toxic Un-Ionized Ammonia.
  • Reduces build-up of material from decayed aquatic vegetation, leaves, grass, excess food & fish waste.
  • Provides ongoing biological activity as water cools down.
  • Will sustain surface freezing.
  • 100% biological (NO CHEMICALS).
  • Safe for fish, all aquatic life, wildlife & pets.
  • Reduces spring clean-up.
  • Effective for fall preparatiom.

About Tricker's
Store Hours
America's Oldest Water Garden Specialist established in 1892
In the 1920s and 1930s, William Tricker delivered aquatics locally with trucks to customers. This practice is still done today.

William Tricker, Inc.® is a leading grower of aquatic plants, supplier of water garden products and aquarium supplies. Our aquatic greenhouses have produced superior plants for over a century. Customers have been receiving quality aquativ plants and animals that make water gardening easy and fun to do. Purchase with confidence at Tricker's.

William Tricker (born 1853) started his commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's when he started hybridizing water lilies and studied what helps their growth. The shape, colors and hardiness of his beautiful aquatic plants have withstood the test of time.

In the early 1890's, he earned a reputation as a leader in aquatic lifeforms from hybridiing many water lilies. His water lily nursery and company, in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, was passed down tthrough his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker mail-order catalog was mailed to customers across the nation, and we still do, today.
