About Bioverse, Inc.

Bioverse's Operating Philosophy is Founded on Four Guiding Principles:

  1. 1. Natural products are a better alternative to chemicals. Bioverse's products contain bacteria and enzymes found in nature. We feature biodegradable and reusable products that cost no more than chemicals and actually save our customers money over time.
  2. 2. We offer solutions for water problems big and small. For applications of all kinds, Bioverse has an all natural solution to improve water quality, clarity and algae removal. Bioverse's products are used at Camp David, in the reflecting ponds in our nation's capital, and at golf courses, municipal sites, cranberry bogs, backyard fountains, ponds, and in fish tanks throughout the U.S.
  3. 3. Bioverse pond cleaning products are easy to use. All of our solutions have been designed with ease in mind. Most products are simply applied to the water and replaced monthly. Bioverse provides a patented delivery system for 24 hour a day, 7 day a week, 30 day per month treatment programs. Our biodegradable products dissolve over time for more effective application and more environmental compatibility.
  4. 4. Bioverse can improve your water. We have an exceptional track record of improving water quality for more than a decade. Bioverse was founded with the mission of creating all natural solutions for common water problems. Our products help people, animals, and the environment. Today, Bioverse's products are available across the US and are being used successfully to improve water quality in an increasing number of ways and locations.

Our History

Bioverse was founded in 1995 as a research and development company. After four years of formulation, testing, and approvals, Bioverse introduced its first line of commercial products in 1999.

From its inception, Bioverse has created innovative ways to enhance water quality, such as the development of the patented AquaSpherePRO and Pond Water Cleaner dispenser. These dispensers, combined with state of the art Continuous Release Technology, consume excess nutrients in ponds and lakes. Once submerged, the dispenser becomes an on-site bacteria factory, by incubating, growing, and dispensing beneficial bacteria 24/7 for up to 30 days. The AquaSpherePRO, Pond Water Cleaner, and AquaLily enjoy high success rates in ponds and larger bodies of water which are ecologically balanced.

In 2008, the company was purchased by a committed group of long-time investors. This investor group believes in the long-term benefits of all natural products that assist bioremediation in ponds, lakes, and other types of water both large and small.
