The MuckMat creates a firm surface on your lake bottom that is easy to walk on so people do not sink into the muck. Once the MuckMat has been placed in the water, an immediate change is visible. Individuals who walk on the MuckMat will find that they no longer sink. Instead, they can walk across the area with ease. The MuckMat provides a supportive barrier between an individual and the mucky lake floor. The MuckMat does this by spreading the individual’s weight across the entire mat area to prevent them from sinking into the muck. It’s a great combination that uses simple scientific facts to create a solution to your muck problems and it is an affordable, effective and safe alternative to costly lake muck removal services. In addition is also kills all the aquatic weed plants below it so you not only do not sink anymore, you do not have to get tangled up in weeds as you swim in the lake. And for your piece of mind, the MuckMat is DEQ approved and guaranteed for five years against defects in materials and workmanship.
MuckMat Pro is the only lake muck control product that lets you walk over muck — without sinking! It is the simplest, safest, quickest, most effective way to handle lake bottom muck. Nothing compares — or even comes close.
You’ll learn how it works — but my short video will show you how great it works. Watch the MuckMat Pro in action, Click the video in the upper right... I’ll wait here for you...
Awesome video isn’t it? That muck is very soft. A soil engineer said it has, “zero bearing load capacity.” That’s super bad muck — and you just watched me walk right over it!
(You probably noticed in the video, there weren’t any lake weeds either).
If you’ve driven on I-75 in Florida, the Alaskan Highway, or thousands of other American roads — you’ve driven on the technology MuckMat Pro uses.
Highway engineers use special fabrics and grids, designed to hold sand and gravel securely over soft, wet soils — providing a solid base for the concrete surface you drive on.
MuckMat Pro uses these same fabrics and grids. You walk on the fabric — the grid underneath holds you up. A rugged, steel frame keeps everything in place on your lake bottom.
When you step in muck or mud, you sink because the soil actually moves sideways — not down. Gravity pulls on you — the wet soil slides to the side (most of it) — and you sink in the muck. Yuck!
You’ve probably had this happen. You step in mud — and the mud moves sideways, then up and around your shoe. The MuckMat Pro prevents the muck from moving — and you don’t sink!
Many people use multiple MuckMat Pros to create larger beach areas — often adding sand on top.
Think of a snowshoe. You know it transfers your weight over a larger area, helping you walk over deep snow.
But a snowshoe's webbing also traps snow crystals, locking them in place. The snow can't move sideways — and you walk right over it.
Make sense, doesn't it?
Another example. Pool balls roll around freely on a pool table. But when you "rack 'em up," they can't roll. The more balls you put in the rack, the less they can move — and if the rack is full — they can't move at all. That's exactly how our grid works.
In this close up of a MuckMat Pro you see the black grid under the steel frame and black fabric.
Like the snowshoe, the grid transfers your weight over a large area. Meanwhile, holes in the grid fill with muck — trapping it — like the pool balls . You walk right over your muck, no matter how deep it is.
Now that you've pictured it — you've got a good idea of how it works. Even if you don't see it completely, yet — it works — just like the video you watched.
MuckMat Pro is easy to install — Leave it in year round — Put sand over it, if you wish — Guaranteed to work!
The MuckMat Pro gives you a firm surface to walk on — and makes a firm base if you want to add beach sand. The fabric also keeps sunlight from reaching your weeds — so you're weed-free!
The aluminized steel frame holds everything in place on your lake bottom. Muckmat Pro stays where you put it — it won't move.
Now you know how a MuckMat Pro keeps you from sinking in muck and weed-free, (and a little about how highways are built).
MuckMat Pro gives you a firm surface to walk on — and keeps you weed free — Guaranteed!
Now our grandkids can enjoy the lake shore as it's meant to be. We'll be getting two more this spring.
I want to thank you! We got a MuckMat Pro from you last year. My grandkids just love it! I thank you, because ever since we bought our cottage in 1982, we've never been able to swim off the dock. We always had to take the boat out to deep water to swim. I want to thank you for giving us our cottage back.
They work great. I bought three of them last year and they are Outstanding. I don't sink, and the kids and my dogs love it. I blow 'em off [clean off silt] with the waver runner. It works great.
We've had our MuckMat for three years now. It's absolutely great. The kids can go and play in our beach now. They'd never go out there before, they didn't like the muck and weeds. To clean it, I just rake it off with a plastic rake. The weeds don't grow and the kids don't sink. We really get to use our lakefront now.
The MuckMat Pro works great and does exactly what it's suppose to do. We bought two of them. We have no weeds and we walk out on it with no problem. You can turn a swamp into a nice beach. They're awesome.
I was really happy with them. We bought three and I was able to walk them in just like your video. There are no weeds and we don't sink. That's why I'm getting two more MuckMat Pros.
Just wanted to let you know that our 'muck mat' works exactly as advertised. I was dubious it would hold up, but after a year in the water it's still in perfect shape. It's been very easy to clean off and move around and is 100% effective for preventing lake grass and water lilies and simultaneously giving us a very comfortable surface to walk around. No more fear of blood suckers or getting our feet stuck in mud -- my wife and daughters will get in the water now with no complaint! It worked so well we're going to be getting the XL also! I have no reservations and am 100% satisfied!
I just want to let you know this is our second muck mat and we were very happy with it .That's why when we moved to another location we bought another one . This is a great product and we are very pleased now we can swim in the lake off the shore with out sinking up to our knees and the kids can play safely.
My dock goes out 30 feet from the shore line and at that point is almost 5 feet deep with muck up to my knees so the water level comes up almost to my chin. I put one matt on either side of my dock and put in such that the end of the matt is 3 feet beyond the end of the dock or the blue and yellow noodles. In the one picture my daughter is standing on the matt, without that matt the water would have been up above her waste with muck at least mid-cafe. In any event my 4 and 6 year grand daughters love jumping in time after time after time after time- you get the point. I leave the mats in all winter with a few extra patio stones placed here and there then I remove the stones in the spring. I also have a weighted push broom that works real well at removing sand and muck that gets washed up. Again thank you very much - I wish I had bought them sooner.
