What is SILTEX?

Siltex is a natural and inexpensive way to reduce organic silt in ponds, lakes and rivers. 

It is a highly porous form of calcium carbonate consisting of microscopic particles of less than 5 microns, which means that it is environmentally friendly and harmless to plants and animals.

What does it do?

  • Decreases organic and oxidisable matter which shows up as a reduction in silt levels
  • Increases oxygenation and stimulates aerobic micro-organisms
  • Improves water clarity by settling solids
  • Reduces methane production in silt body
  • Counteracts acidity in water and silt
  • Provides essential calcium for pond life
  • Increases biodiversity in water bodies



Aeration, (provided here by our 0.5hp Splash) coupled with Siltex is a great combination to tackle organic silt loading.
