True Nitrifying Bacteria For Rapid Bio-Filtration Start-Up

Nitri-Bac is a formulation of true nitrifying bacteria, or aerobic autotrophs, capable of fully establishing or reinforcing bio-filtration by naturally oxidizing ammonia and nitrite from aquatic environments.

Once introduced to adequately prepared systems, these bacteria colonize and multiply quickly. Because they are not spore-forming bacteria they are relatively fragile, requiring an oxygen source, food supply, and an aquatic habitat during their application.




No permits or applicator’s licenses are required to use Nitri-Bac. The bacteria in Nitri-Bac are recognized by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and listed in the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). No registration with the EPA is required because Nitri-Bac is not an algicide and is not regulated under the Federal Insecticides, Fungicides, and Rodenticides Act (FIFRA).

Where Is Nitri-Bac Effective?

Nitri-Bac is effective in a variety of industries and applications where nitrification is vital.  Nitri-Bac is even capable of handling loads of hundreds of thousands to millions of gallons of wastewater.

What Kind Of Bacteria Is Nitri-Bac?

Nitri-Bac bacteria are classified as aerobic autotrophs. These bacteria utilize ammonia and nitrite as a primary energy source.  Nitri-Bac is available in a freshwater formula which contains  specific strains nitrosomonas and nitrobacter.  The saltwater formula contains nitrococcus and nitrosococcus.  

They will work in both the presence and absence of oxygen and require organic carbon. The introduction of billions of these bacteria into a pond or lake will enhance, or augment, the existing microbial populations for improved efficiency in degrading wastes. This process is called bio-augmentation.

Is Nitri-Bac 100% Safe?

Nitri-Bac is very stable in controlled conditions and carries a shelf stable life of seven months and three months for Nitri-Bac Super Concentrate. The bacteria are 100 percent non-toxic, non-pathogenic, and non-corrosive.

These bacteria pose no health hazards to humans, fish, pets, plants, waterfowl, or any other type of wildlife.
